White kitchen with rustic wooden table.. just gorgeous!!!

Light-reflecting white paint on walls, cupboards and ceiling makes this traditional dining room seem bigger and lets original features like the fireplace, cupboards and doors shine through.

Colorful Rustic Wood Crate Reuse

    The overall simplicity of form is very modern, but the rustic crates are anything but – a stylistic balance This kind of design approach could be even better employed in other modern kitchen layouts, includes kitchens with central islands.

There are entire warehouses full of these as shown in the picture above. No one ever anticipated them becoming valuable some day to folks who have a taste for retro and vintage interior remodeling materials. Their use in this novel way creates a strange balance between a heavily industrial look and a delicate antique aesthetic.

Rustic Chic Interiors

The rustic-modern trend is one that I hope sticks around forever! It's such a welcome change from "Tuscan rustic" -- where everything matches and tries too hard to conjure a certain time period or look.

Magazines inspire me to look for ways to incorporate rustic elements into my home in elegant and sophisticated ways. The trick is to not go overboard. Sometimes all it takes is one bench with natural aged wood, contemporary chairs, and lots of white. Chic !!
A rustic ceiling left as-is creates a huge impact in this kitchen.

Barn doors revisited

In with the old, out with the new?

With today’s green savvy mind set, nothing is put to waste. Whether you are remodeling, or building new, there seems to be a common theme popping up, barn doors.


Salvaged barn doors add a rustic twist to a newly constructed home.

These barn doors make a great headboard, and were kept in their original seafoam paint color.

Louis Vuitton Fall/ Winter 2010/ 2011

Three beautiful models of different generations – Christy Turlington, Karen Elson, and Natalia Vodianova – shared duties on promoting Louis Vuitton Fall/ Winter 2010/ 2011 collection.

The adverts feature the ladies dressed in retro-inspired garments sitting in a New York studio made to look like a Hollywood star’s old-fashioned dressing room. I love these pictures and dresses are just exquisite and beautiful.
