house envy 4.0

today is my dear, dear friend tammy’s birthday. she and her husband are moving to bozeman, montana in a couple weeks, so when i saw this house in architectural digest last month, i knew i had to save it to post today. happy birthday, tammy!

what a gorgeous place. i’m especially loving the exposed ceiling trusses, the pendants above the dining room table, and those crazy comfortable-looking leather chairs in the living room. you can see the entire slideshow here.

house envy 3.0

this amagansett home was featured in the nytimes t magazine back in may. swoon-worthy indeed. i love that this modern barn look was infused with all sorts of great finnish style… my favorite bits are the light fixture over the seating area, that pile of wood in the corner, the embroidered rug, all the marimekko fabric, and that serene bedroom….

this house belongs to tiina laakkonen and her husband. she also has a shop in amagansett that i love to pop into called tiina: the store. it’s got the same aesthetic, and sells the most gorgeous things for your home, including these chairs from ilmari tapiovaara. 

don’t these have adirondack chairs beat in terms of style? i think so. put these on my porch any day.
