This gorgeous interior has transcended the appeal of season; it’s an invitation to curl up by the fireplace with a steaming cup of blueberry herbal tea to soak up the warmth of logs and cinders. The same space is a vision of fresh summer breezes wafting through the air while juicy watermelon is sliced in the vibrant kitchen. This home is begging to be relished year round.
The wildly talented Jessica Helgerson created the casual and whimsical interior design, captured perfectly by Lincoln Barbour’s photography.
The confection of contrast between deep ebony floors and woodwork and pristine white is a mastery of graphic shapes and negative space – all embellished by innate texture of material. Reupholstered and refinished vintage finds create a delight of mid-century lines and charisma. The coffee table gleaming among the flood of natural light is constructed from locally salvaged wood by architect Yianni Doulis.
The expansive white space of the open and alluring great room is balanced by the elegant earthy silhouettes of two antique Portuguese eel traps dangling over the fireplace. The soft color palette is accented by handfuls of muted translucent glass demijohn bottles and sprinkled with vivid veins of life – leafy branches.
This charming space was found lingering unassumingly on Design*Sponge (click over for more pictures!).
