I love this house that Elle Decor featured on their website recently. Jeweler Federico de Vera revamped an abandoned railway station into this marvelous and very stylish home. Read the rest of the story here.

Mind you; it’s his weekend home. It inspires me to rethink my plans for our cottage. It’s lovely as it is, but can do with a bit of a spruce up. It’s still a bit too cluttered and I am not sure I can still fool myself into thinking the faux-wood paneling has a Mad Men feel to it. Maybe a lick of white paint on the wall for a start…
our cottage. I was thinking white for the walls and a darker colour for the window panes
And maybe a slate grey for the outside with white for the window panes and doors. And a red and white scheme for the shutters….
Loyal Homevoyeurs aficionado Arjan took an apartment journey too. The day after I posted about my own, he took up the challenge and captured bits and pieces of his own home. Arjan doesn’t have an iPhone, therefore also doesn’t have the Hipstamatic app so the pictures are crystal clear. Maybe a bit too calculated too as the objects pictured are all high-end design pieces. The purpose was to find beauty in the unusual, the accidental or the overlooked, but the result is striking nonetheless. The marble table pictures in the forefront of the image with the red Arne Jacobson Egg chair is a rare Porsgrunn Poul Kjaerholm PK61 table. More about that in a later post!
If you are inspired by Arjan’s home, you might like this book about Arne Jacobson. It’s on sale now for $29,70 in the Homevoyeurs webshop.

A little red flower I found right outside my door. It must have blown away from the planters outside my neighbours kitchen window. I put it in a small vintage vase. It makes me smile.
