Today is my first Friday Link Day! I have five great places for you to visit, look around and get inspired. Have fun!
“Since more than half of the movie takes place in the house, we really get to know the place,” says Meyers. “What the characters wear and how they live and decorate really say something about them.”
Here is a photo of Jane (Meryl Streep) and Steve Martin in her kitchen that she is going to renovate.
Here the girls are enjoying an after dinner chat in the living room. Nancy always includes great fireplaces in her movies!
The design of Jane’s (Meryl Streep) bakery was influenced by New York City Bakery, London’s Daylesford Organic and Dean & Deluca, among others.
I can appreciate a laid back, casual, coastal feeling and these photos give me inspiration to create a space that is seaworthy.
This sliding chair for the patio covered in nautical stripes would be a perfect place to read a book or chat with someone special.
If my ceiling was high enough, I would have a canoe hanging from it just like the one pictured. I love the contrast between the boat, and the white tongue and groove ceiling.
This is a great way to dress up an all white room. Just hang a few oars on the wall to add texture and appeal, and big, bold, navy and white pillows on a slipcovered sofa.
This is my second post on my new favorite designer, Tim Clark. He is the designer for the 2010 Ultimate Beach House by Coastal Living (be sure to check out my post for this home) and I felt that there is still more to share with you about his gorgeous art of designing.
Tim Clark states:
When designing a modern home, the tendency is to create stark, minimalist, monochromatic interiors that may look great in a photograph, but are in reality deeply uncomfortable to live in. Native Woods uses building materials rooted in nature, and personal objects and furnishings that evoke a sense of place and history, all the while never forgetting that a home must be designed in concert with nature, and with the style of architecture and culture in which it sits. Native Woods homes often refer to Asian aesthetics and contemporary design , but are always comfortable, relaxed and graceful—as all homes should be. Native Woods, at its essence, is about thinking locally, while keeping a global perspective.
I love how he uses objects from nature and ocean inspired to help him create the color variations in a beach house. The photos below are from his Native Woods beach inspiration portfolio. As always, I choose photos that speak to me in a special way. To see more visit Tim Clark Design.
