And just when you think it can’t get any better…the magic egg farmhouse has a GUESTHOUSE!!!
A little spot just over a little hill from the Magic Egg farmhouse. The guest house was filled with spiders and piles (and piles) of books when we got there, but it was easy to see the promise of this space. We let the original floors and wood beams steer the style, and kept things simple and light. Textured linens, white plaster, brass accents, some hanging sage from the garden, and of course, some built in bunk beds. It’s the perfect sized weekend getaway. Jersey Ice Cream Co. does it again.
It’s no surprise that French architect Camille Hermand is one of our favourites. Her latest project sees her take on a family home in a western suburb of Paris. No suburban hohum here though. Her signature use of black and white is enriched with deep accents of blue and a deliciously tart citron yellow while a striking concrete staircase leads you up through the floors. Talk about Parisian chic in the ‘burbs!
This comfortable and stylish family home in Chapel Hill, North Carolina received major environmentalist cred recently by going net positive. Architect Arielle Condoret Schechter said that the home was producing $ 22 more energy per month than it consumed at the time of her report on the project.

As we continue our Best of the Best series, we are looking at ways to decorate bedrooms. I thought it would be fun to look at something a little bit daring today. Bedroom wallpaper, anyone? Every time I’ve posted about wallpaper in bedrooms (or any room) in the past, I get lots of comments about how you love the look, but don’t love the idea of removing it someday. We removed tons of wallpaper from a couple of our old houses and it wasn’t fun, so I get it. Plus if the pattern or colors feel dated after awhile, it’s quite a project to change it.
Bhuwalka House is expansive home in Bengaluru, India, completed by Khosla Associates, that showcases Indian raw materials with its bright Jaisalmer yellow sandstone floors. They contrast nicely within a rich blue interior wall, exposed concrete walls, and timber roofing.
I get really excited when I come across a home with lots of character, where period details have been maintained. This 2 bedroom flat situated on the first and second floors of a traditional terraced house in Newington Green, north London is the home of designer Abigail Edwards, and several of her beautiful wallpapers and fabrics are featured throughout. Set against a backdrop of old wood floors, exposed brick and large windows, this definitively got me excited. Available as a location home through Shoot Factory.
