An Aussie Escape
A rustic retreat doesn’t get much chicer than this Australian property. Called Ross Farm, it consists of three humble structures that have been in the family of Studio Moore founder Andrea Moore since the 1960s. Moore, along with her father, decided to totally renovate the spaces, turning them into a collection of cozy and earthy vacation rentals. Soothing green tones, leather, and light wood set the tone for the design, but our favorite feature has to be the Japanese style cedar soaking tub.
A Pillow That Pairs Well
Sometimes a simple linen pillow is just what you need to bring some softness to a space. This version, with a color-blocked design that comes in four colors, will pair well with lots of other patterns, and blend seamlessly with any style. And at just $36, you can grab one for every room.
Wide Open Walls
An open floor plan gets a new meaning in this Los Angeles home. Designed by Assembledge+ as the family home for one of its founders, entire walls appear to disappear, connecting indoor and outdoor spaces, while numerous skylights flood the home with light. The result is a throughly modern space that that feels totally in touch with nature (and the enviable Southern California weather).
We love accessories with a handmade, natural feel. And if they happen to also smell good, we’ll that’s just a bonus. This candle gives you both. The fresh linen scent recalls laundry drying in the sun, while the woven rattan container will make a lovely, textural addition to a coffee table or nightstand.
Defying Expectations in DC
From marigold to mint, olive to ochre, this Washington DC home doesn’t shy away from using color. Designer Zoe Feldman added rich tones to almost every space, turning a traditional home into an unexpected showcase for not just color, but plenty of patterns too. We especially love the master bedroom, where the walls are covered in a delicate floral wallpaper that feels both traditional and totally modern.
We’ve been seeing tons of terrazzo pop up everywhere this year (including in Bobby’s furniture line). And there are plenty of easy ways you can incorporate this style.in your space. For accessories, these coasters will give you a subtle hint of the pattern, while this tumbler is a cute spot to stash a toothbrush. To give your plants a pop, try this sculptural terrazzo planter.
Color In The Country
Equal parts rustic and refined, this home located in the Mornington Peninsula near Melbourne, feels like the perfect place for a growing family. Situated on a vineyard, the wood clad home designed by McManus Lew, has plenty of natural elements (seagrass wallpaper, colorful stone) along with cool modern touches (concrete and clean-lined furniture) that elevate it beyond your typical country home. And we’re definitely swooning over that pale pink tile in master bathroom!
Looking for a new staple for your workout wardrobe? We recommend this classic long sleeve tee, which wicks away moisture and helps keep you cool. And at $15, you can stock up in all 8 colors.
