A railway depot turned into a lovely home

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.

Railway station turned home

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….

Summer cottages

I am not sure about the weather where you are, but here the sun is out! It’s still cold, and the weather people are talking of a pending winter week, but for now it almost feels like spring. So time for some summer inspiration: summer cottages!

Prefab garden shed / greenhouse / guesthouse

This lovely green house Garden shed is designed by architect Ville Hara and designer Linda Bergroth for Kekkilä Garden’s Home & Garden collection. It’s a prefabricated garden shed combined with a greenhouse that easily doubles as a guesthouse. It can be assembled by simply using a screwdriver.  The Garden Shed, made from Finnish pine and safety glass, was launched in 2010 and was awarded with the Garden Product of the Year prize.
