Warm rusticity with a twist..

I don't know much about this place, other than it being the NY residence
of famous fashion & celebrity portrait photographer Tom Munro

The setting looks perfectly wonderful and serene, and I do like the
unexpected contrasts between rustic and comfortable, as well as the
unusual colour palette used for several of the rooms. Just look around..

How wonderful to catch a glimpse of this glossy red room through
the monochromatic hallway. Perfect contrast of bare and dressed.

The masculine & spartan looking kitchen is a far cry from the sunny
and warm looking dining room with it's yellow chairs and light walls.

..and not to mention the living room that has a dash of feminity
through the detail and general lightness of the colours & decor.

Then back to dark, moody drama in the bathroom, and the richness
of the master bedroom. Such a beautiful and unusual wall colour.

All in all oozing with personality and individuality. A happy place.

I love this place. I love the simplicity of it all. I feel I could live happy in a place like this. I especially love the view of the lake.

What a great find. I would never think of painting a ceiling glossy red but it so works. x

Happy, personal and inviting indeed! And once again - all that light (we both so crave!).

Tons of love to you.
