I have been in love with this house since it came out in Architectural Digest 5 or so years ago in a September issue. I have brought it to every house I have moved to, which has been more than one a year and it respectably sits among my design books. European interiors have always appealed to me most, I don’t know if it is my Polish background or maybe my little beach house of a shack I spent my summers in, with only oil lamps to light the night, but either way I am incredibly draw to these cozy European designs.
Axel Vervoordt is a well respected Belgian designer with the simple design philosophy: “Make people happy; make them discover things in themselves; make them feel at home and love their house.”

Summer, you are here, thank goodness! Today is my first day of freedom and I am just giddy with excitement.
Once I received my interior design degree, I went on to get my business degree, and oh my has the lack of creativity been unbearable. But, now it is Summer so I can spend my time enjoying more creative things. First on my list is to host a summer dinner party in my back yard, and here is a collection of the inspiration photographs I’ve come across.

I have just realized that not a single one of my posts have been dedicated solely to dining rooms, so, here it is. This collection of dining rooms have a bit of an earthy, rustic, farmhouse feel. I’ve always liked this style because it reminds me of the summer beach house my family had when I was very young; it was like a little farmhouse that was comfortably simple.

Mismatching the dining room chairs is comfortable; comfortable in an imperfect way, comfortable in a beautiful way. I dislike a perfectly matching home, where everything is just so and you feel like you can’t touch anything because it will throw everything off balance; it’s hardly relaxing. Mismatched chairs are elegant in their own way and more people aut to do it, but not too many, because it would lose all its interest.
