Apartment Therapy has a house tour of an 89-year-old woman living in Gloucester, MA. I love the combinations of styles and colors in this woman’s house. She is obviously someone with a natural sense of flare and originality. This is the kind of house I would like to have–not in style, but in spirit. A place that is a reflection of your life, your memories, and your creativity.
Says Apartment Therapy:
We present this cottage not for reader critiques on amount of stuff, style, etc. but to offer you a rare glimpse into a seaside home inhabited by an inspiring woman and her lifetime of objects, photographs, and mementos. Not to mention her original Design Research sofa, Marimekko pillows, Rolling Stone Magazine bin, and refreshingly unpredictable arrangement of objects…This is perhaps one of the most accidentally hip homes we’ve ever been in, made all the more delightful by the fact that the owner has been relishing life for 89 years.
I love how the simple placement of the jar in the middle reflects all the colors in the porch furniture.
Amazing pillows on the couch.
What do you know? A tinkertoy sculpture in the kitchen
Now I want a dresser with spool knobs.
Lots more here.
