I want to live in upstate New York on the weekendsÂ – I want a home in the woods just like below and I want to bake bread and garden and cook and potter and maybe learn to knit! Monday to Friday I can commute to London and work Iâm thinking â although thatâs not particularly eco and responsible I realise.
Below is the home of model Shannan Click and photographer Dan Martensen and I am beyond jealous. I love the simplicity of how everything just slots together nothing is pretentious and everything feels as if it has always been.Texture which is in abundance in this space creates a rustic charm and provides a casual. boho lived in vibe.Â By applying wood to your walls â you instantly create another visual layer. I did it at home in a little nook in the basement and painted it out the same colour as the walls. My house was built in 1860 so some of the walls were slightly imperfect and tongue and groove is a great way for covering them up and adding texture at the very same time.
Panelling city style – a nook in my basement where I put up some tongue and groove and painted it out the same colour as the walls adding another layer of texture. Its super easy to do – think of it as DIY in a lazy Sunday afternoon kind of way. Its all in my book A Girls Guide to Decorating which is the most perfect Christmas present one can buy. Can I say that?
