such a lovely townhouse this is! this danish modern home featured in bo bedre and photographed by tia borgsmidt boasts large, open rooms with loads of natural light, high ceilings and incredibly beautiful hardwood herringbone floors. this copehnhagen home was built in 1931, designed by architect Hans Dahlerup Bertelsen and the current owners purchased it and brought it back to its original glory, then furnished it with mostly found objects — a knack for ‘recyling and repurposing’ a lot of their vintage furniture were dumpster dives! most impressive — folks after my own heart! for the full tour, visit bo bedre .

I’m off to Japan for a month, but before I go, I thought I’d leave you with few of my favorite Japanese houses from one remarkable duo, mA-style architects.

Top to bottom, left to right:

  1. modern extension of a traditional family residence
  2. The garden and floating walls that frame this artful abode
  3. This plywood closet inside a creatively constructed space
  4. Patterns formed by the natural light pouring in from skylights
  5. Shōji-inspired sliding doors that open to an interior patio

Sayonara for a little bit!

Happy Friday,
Annie

the folks at Target Style invited me to share some styling tips with you this week — and i selected this sweet little accent table to show you just how many ways you can make it look great. i love a piece of furniture that has more than one life — since i love to change up my decor practically as often as i get my hair done, a versatile piece like this faux bamboo table is exactly what i’m talking about. this is Target’s Threshold™ Bamboo Motif Accent Table with Glass Top in Gold — very on trend at the moment, and a stylish but functional table I can see using for a multitude of purposes — bar cart, library table, sofa end table, nightstand — it even looks great outdoors. this time around, i’m displaying vintage cloche collection, styling it up as a bar cart, and using it as the perfect end table.
