At just over 2500 square feet, this three-level townhome, built in 1873, is stacked high with character and history; from high ceilings, towering floor-to-ceiling windows that let all of that good light in, a huge open-plan design, to ornamental details in the ceilings and walls, marble staircase and fireplace, paneled walls, and a southeast-facing balcony with views to the Vondel Church. As if the incredible location and stunning family home details aren’t enough, who wouldn’t want their home decorated by this brilliant family? Clearly, they’ve got style for days and know just how to mix old and new with that class Dutch style everyone in the design world has come to love.

A Bright White & Rustic Home Decor in a California Home, Updated for Summer

If you don’t yet follow Michelle Janeen on Instagram, and you have a soft spot for dreamy white beach interiors, the time is now. In the Spring, she shared her entire bright white California home tour on Nesting With Grace, but if you’re a regular follower of Michelle’s Instagram, you may have noticed that in the last few weeks she’s been sharing the most gorgeous glimpses of her beautiful home including some rustic home decor, updated for Summer. The San Diego mom’s style is brimming with cool, California style, and plenty of soft rustic home decor touches. Her “1970’s fixer” is the stuff vacation house dreams are made of.

It’s amazing what bringing in a few live green plants, some brighter pillows, and summery accents can do. By the way, crushing on Michelle’s Summer pillows? I shared 18 neutral throw pillows a few weeks back, and I think you’re going to love them!

Michelle also regularly brings in fresh clippings from her yard. Wouldn’t it be nice to have olive branches and eucalyptus right in your own backyard? Meanwhile, I’ll be trolling Trader Joe’s for ALL of the greenery.

Love that sun-filled dining room.

A Renovated Family Farmhouse in Woodside

Farmhouse style is so popular in home and interior design right now. Anyone else completely obsessed with Fixer Upper’s Chip and Joanna Gaines? Watch a few episodes of the popular HGTV show and you’ll want to shiplap everything. I’m no exception; so when I laid eyes on this fully renovated bright, white family farmhouse, I couldn’t wait to share a few glimpses inside. This is modernized farmhouse style done so right.

Right from the start, two banana trees in large galvanized metal buckets frame the entrance for a bright and bold first impression. I’m also majorly crushing on the idea of placing a natural jute rug just outside the front door. So warm and welcoming.

The rustic wood touches and exposed wood beams (left natural) are a nod to the home’s farmhouse roots.

Both the white marble kitchen and the beautifully lit open dining room feel modern and fresh. (a.k.a., Pinterest-worthy.)

Definitely copying this foyer style. So sleek yet welcoming.

Villa Palmier Vacation Beach House in St. Barts

I can’t stop dreaming of the beach. (Remember this stunner?) So when I laid eyes on this gorgeous vacation beach house, I fell hard. Matt and Kate Holstein, a couple from Aspen, Colorado, recently remodeled their dream vacation beach house for themselves and guests on the Caribbean island of St. Barts. Kate is a photographer with a passion for interior design (and it shows!), and her husband Matt has a background in construction and real estate. Together, they revamped their idyllic Villa Palmier with the idea of bringing the locale’s pristine outdoors in.

This vacation beach house is exactly the kind of escape to the Caribbean you’d want: at just 1,000 square feet, though the space is small, it’s open and bright, and because everything is designed with an open view to the sea, it feels vast. This is indoor/outdoor living at it’s finest, with two of the walls opening up entirely to the outside. And the best part? It’s actually a vacation rental.

Villa Palmier Beach House in St. Barts - White Living Room

The ceilings, the mostly white rooms and oversized slip-covered sectional sofa, the rustic wood touches, the straw floor cushions; it’s a beachy paradise.

The gold touches in the kitchen keep the space feeling modern and a little bit edgy.

Never have I ever so badly wanted a dining room space with a view. (And I’ll forever love that Reclaimed Wood Dining Room Set.)

The Dreamiest Coastal Home in Seagrove Beach

Just wait until you peek inside this beach house with coastal interiors designed by Old Seagrove Homes; it’s a stunner. The details will give you all of those seaside vibes, in just the right dose.

Happy home-touring.

I will forever crush on farmhouse sinks. And built-in breakfast nooks.

The Dreamiest Coastal Home in Seagrove Beach - Kitchen Nook

And as much as I love an all-white kitchen, the darker cypress cabinets, floating shelves, and backsplash in this home have me completely re-thinking my stance. This kitchen perfectly mixes rustic elements (the wood was kept natural with only a seal to keep it protected) and modern, polished elements like white quartzite countertops and sleek stainless steel appliances.

I’m so taken with these drapey white curtains.

The living room features a tabby shell stucco fireplace. Such an incredible idea.

The slipcovered sofas, pops of navy, and seashell accents all keep the nautical theme going without feeling too overdone.

I love this sitting area just outside of the master bedroom. An arched doorway leads to the room and is flanked by built-in bookcases with distressed plank boards. And the vaulted ceiling with Cypress wood beams in that master? I’ll take it all, please.

A Modern Manhattan Apartment with a Key to Gramercy Park

Actress Uma Thurman’s Manhattan apartment (a sort of “duplex” created by combining two apartments in the building) has been listed on StreetEasy, giving us a rare glimpse into her stunning home. And even if potential buyers aren’t wowed by the stunning apartment itself, it has perhaps one of the most coveted apartment features for New Yorkers: a key to the private Gramercy Park.

The apartment, built in 1910, wraps around two corners of the building and the interior was redesigned by architect Paul Scott specially for Uma. There’s a wood-burning fireplace in the living room, a tin ceiling in the kitchen, original herringbone oak floors (swoon!), and ten-foot ceilings throughout the residence. On the main floor there’s a renovated modern kitchen with a walnut counter, eat-in breakfast bar, and copper sink, a large dining room with a terrace overlooking the park, a master suite bedroom and second master, plus three more bedrooms, there’s even a gorgeous tiled Turkish steam bath.

The apartment boasts two master bedrooms (in case one just isn’t enough.)
