As much as I'm a pattern layering lover, I occasionally come across a home like this and have a strong desire to simplify. This home, while void of pattern, is layered with warm neutral shades of ivory, sage green and flax with a little dark gray and black in the accessories and hardware. There are very utilitarian antiques mixed with more ornate side chairs. And so many white candles! It's really a perfect vacation home, though I could easily live in it year round. Here are the photos, found on the Cottages and Gardens website. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
(the colors in this shot are a little warmer in the magazine, and appear somewhat washed out online)
^^The green walls and windows remind me of my own office, a color that is soothing and refreshing at the same time. Sadly, no sources are shared in the article.^^
^^ Adore this white bedroom and luxurious linen bedding. ^^
^^The floors in this cottage are AMAZING^^
I also loved another Hampton project, Towd Point Cottage, found in the portfolio on their website.
^^chippy farmhouse island paired with iron candle holder is a repeated theme. But it doesn't look too country when surrounded by the simple, clean lines and practical white dishes of the kitchen.^^
^^ more black frames and old rugs to add contrast amidst all the neutrals^^
You can also buy their soy candles on etsy, which I couldn't resist doing myself.
I let you know what I think of the scent.
