home feature: miranda brooks' brooklyn house

I stumbled upon the stunning home of Miranda Brooks and Bastien Halard when sourcing this below image for a girl's room design.

Its one of my favorite little girl's room and her other daughter's room is just as sweet and romantic.

Located in Brooklyn, the home has a distinctly European flair with a compromise being met between Brooks - an English landscape architect - and Halard - a French architect:

 "The first floor would be French, with white oak flooring inspired by the parquet à point de Hongrie typical of Parisian apartments. The middle floor would be English, with Marthe Armitage hand-printed wallpaper in the girls’ rooms—horse chestnuts for Grey and a mélange of butterflies, birds, and spiderwebs for Poppy. And the top floor would evoke New York in spirit, a place where compromises and concessions had to be made" (Vogue).

Of all the rooms in the house, the garden space seems to be the most magical especially with two pet bunnies.

The original Vogue article is worth the read as Brooks and Halard seem to live quite the life....

Have a great weekend!

home feature: union bluff

Emily Oster

I first came across Hutker Architects when I blogged about Grey Barn Farm. Designed by Hutker, Grey Barn is a stunning working farm and home inspired by traditional Belgian farmhouses. I became re-familiarized with the firm's work - specifically the home below - when I came across this image on Pinterest.

Called Union Bluff, there is such simple perfection captured in the image of this home. I love the asymmetry of the windows, how the roof dormers outward, the juxtaposition of the stone wall with the white facade, the color of the roof, the minimalist trim - my list could go on. Hutker describes the Union Bluff home as "combines(ing) the best of the shingled 19th century waterfront cottage with elegant contemporary elements". 

Situated on Martha's Vineyard and built by Andrew A. Flake, Inc., this home is part restoration project and part new addition. Built between October 2012 and June 2014, this 7000 square foot home is beautifully massed to hide its large size. Modern, bright interior spaces designed by Wells and Fox combine with more intimate and smaller rooms to create a truly stunning home both outside and in.

home feature: jeannette whitson in nashville

Emily Oster

The Nashville home of Jeannette Whitson has to have been re-pinned at least tens of thousands of times. I, personally, didn't realize that some of my favorite saved images were of one house. Whitson is an antiques dealer as well as a self-taught interior designer and runs the company Garden Variety Design. She largely sources pieces from France and Belgium and runs a 1st Dibs shop that sells to clients around the world. House Beautiful did a beautiful spread on her home in 2013 where the below the images are gathered from. To read HB's interview with Whitson click here and to see more images of her home click here
