Inspiration is Key

So I have miles and miles of inspirational images, majority of which are of interiors and houses I've fallen in love with. So far, my dream house has 8 bathrooms, 3 kitchens, 6 main bedrooms, 12 library rooms (which is entirely possible with how much I read) and no living rooms. This is simply because I see something and think "oh god, I have to have it!" And thus...12 libraries.

However. I do have two patricular interiors that as soon as I saw them, I knew they would form the basis of my dream house.

The first is the Sydney Dance Company Studios on Pier 4 in Walsh Bay. I couldn't find many images of the interiors, but I could find this one via the Sydney Dance Company Facebook page.

There is lots of thick, dark wood used throughout (hello, it's built on a wharf) and beautiful high, open ceilings with exposed beams. Gorgeous.

The second is a Brownstone owned by Fitzhugh Karol, a woodworker and sculptor, and Lyndsay Caleo, a jewelry designer and goldsmith. It's done by
The Brooklyn Home Company

There are quite a few images below. I just love the open feeling of the white walls and floors, and the unexpected details like the lights over the kitchen island that were salvaged off a freighter ship out of India, and the loft in the dining area, which is used as a "guest" room.

And I love love LOVE the use of the barn door for the bathroom. And that beautiful double wide kitchen sink...I'm getting goosebumps.
