I’ve been working with a client online who really likes mid century/modern/scandinavian but doesn’t feel like it fits her lifestyle.  She also doesn’t want to buy all new furniture and accessories.  She loves modern so we have decided to go with a mature modern aesthetic mixing traditional elements.  When I first saw this home on Savills, an estate agent that specializes in luxury properties, I knew right away that it was perfect inspiration for my client.  I mean that kitchen….amazing!  And I would pay big bucks for a patio like that (below).

This space is definitely more mature than my normal aesthetic but being a designer means flowing with many styles.  See, I can be mature!!!! 🙂






I will take both spaces please.

I saw these images over at emmas designblogg from Elle Interiör and instantly started dreaming about my backyard and patio.  I am not much of an “exteriorist” but our new home already has the perfect setting so it’s alot easier for me to add things to it.  I love mixing vintage flee market finds with newer patio pieces.  Keeping it whimsical is so refreshing to me.

The weather is getting beautiful here in Boise!  Its expected to be 80 degrees on Thursday.  Woop!  One of the many things I love about our home is the backyard.  it feels like a little oasis, complete with a waterfall.  I have a few pieces back there but hope to really decorate this week.  I am always torn between modern and organic outdoor spaces.  I think that I will take both please!
