Living with kids

2 October 2013

I love the blog Design Mom despite the fact that I don’t have kids because I find Gabrielle Blair to be an extremely compelling person. My favorite column on her site is “Living with Kids,” where thoughtful interviews with moms are paired with home tours. The most recent feature was so good I had to share a snippet here. This home is by far more minimalist and modern than the ones I’m usually drawn to, and the color palette is much more muted, but for some reason it really struck me — I stared at several images for minutes each, just taking in every detail. It’s clean and cozy — a tough combination — and it’s curated in the best way, where everything seems meaningful and treasured, not styled. Of course, the beautiful architecture and copious fireplaces don’t hurt. All in all, it seems just right as we transition into fall.

You can see the whole feature here, and I highly recommend you do! I had way too many favorites to post here.

    I live in London, within a mile or so of this house (in quite a small flat) and this is literally my DREAM HOME. Thank you for sharing. I will be taking much inspiration.
