Inspiring Rustic Home : Italy

This inspiring rustic home in the Piedmont region of Italy is owned by
advertising agent Morten Angelo and his wife, Tina Horsted who were looking for a
summer home far from their hometown in Copenhagen but close enough to visit often.

We love the use of neutral tones in this house with the contrast of black and white furnishings.
It is the perfect mix of rustic and modern.

Without a doubt, the greatest feature of this home are the limestone floors and walls... heavenly.

 "...we are all just visiting and we all simply want and need to belong to something, to somebody and to somewhere."

Artist Sara Rahbar was born in Iran but left with her family during the revolution at the beginning of the Iran Iraq war. Having to escape her family and home has been her largest muse and her opinion of war and nationalism, can be seen in her work. In her flag body of work she uses traditional fabrics and objects are reworked as collages that form various incarnations of the American and Iranian flag, exploring ideas of national belonging, as well as the conflicting role of flags as symbols of ideological and nationalistic violence.

"My work is my story told. It is the mirror image of my life, my environments, my history, my present and my memories. I began as a painter, and I still feel as if I am painting, only now its with textiles and objects rather than paint. My work is instinctual, its innate and deeply rooted, its almost as if it was ingrained within me, just as memory and history are ingrained within us. My memories are like pages in a book that I carry with me wherever I go. " - Sara Rahbar

The textures, embroidery and applique on her pieces are just amazing.

Style Crush : Caitlin Wylde

Our latest home style crush is on artist

"I found my house on the bulletin board in a little coffee shop called The Backdoor Bakery in Silverlake. When I went to see it for the first time, I walked in the door and knew it was my home.
The architect who built it in 1929 also originally lived in it and put some pretty special details throughout; the turreted entryway, the domed living room ceiling, the large leaded glass window in the studio, etc. It is truly a unique house.
This house has nurtured and inspired me. It is where I make my artwork, share meals with friends and listen to owls hooting in the pine trees outside my bedroom window at night. I feel grounded and at peace here. I feel so lucky to have found this magical house and called it home for 13 years."

What we love most about Caitlin's home is that it oozes character.
It is filled with little travel pieces, memories, one off pieces, eclectic furniture and art works by Caitlin herself. 

Most of all we love that it looks loved.

I don't think we need to say anymore... the home itself tells it's own story.
