simply color: nina gotlieb

Nina Gotlieb built her house from scratch and wow — I can honestly say that she built my dream home! Her goal was to create a simple, modern and crisp space. There are so many inspiring ideas in Nina’s guestroom — from the luggage racks to the terrarium and the crate shelves. The subtle and natural color palette blends wonderfully with the minimalist style. Waking up in this room would be such a joy, don’t you think?! Check out the rest of this amazing house in the original sneak peek. — Lauren

Any chance we could learn more about those crates? Were they handmade or bought somewhere? They’d be perfect for organizing my craft/sewing area! Thanks!


i’ve been looking for a jute rug like that for years–does anyone know where to find them?


The jute rug is by Roost for Velocity. Unfortunately, it is no longer available. I found one all rolled up and shoved into a corner at the TJ Maxx in Burlington VT. $70!! HUGE SCORE!
