Not too minimal–all the little touches of color and wood make it feel warm and exciting. Love the hanging wall art. Reply Allison says: August 30, 2013 at 7:40 am What is happening to Design Sponge lately? I’ve been really disappointed with all the “From the Archive” posts and really hope this is just a phase… Reply Maxwell Tielman says: August 30, 2013 at 11:58 am Hi, Allison— we’re actually on vacation this week, so we’re running some of our favorite items from the archives. We usually take the last week of August to recharge before September. Back to normal content next week!

It’s so nice that they left the raw wood of the ceiling beams alone. The rustic architectural details really add charm. Reply Shawna @ The Sky Parlor says: August 30, 2013 at 12:11 pm I think these “reruns” are great! I missed some the first time around. You guys deserve a vacation! :) Reply Jessica says: August 31, 2013 at 11:40 am I adore all the contrast and texture. But my favorite part is the rawness, and simplicty, of the exposed ceiling beams. They complete the rooms. Reply Maria @ sustainable aesthetics says: September 1, 2013 at 2:48 pm Wow I love all of the tables in this home. The simplicity of the living room table, as well as the other conference style black table. Great idea for the computer desk and craft table to be covered in the picnic tablecloth, would’ve never thought of that.

Love the mix of B/W and texture in this home Reply pulau tidung says: September 6, 2013 at 12:50 am Its a nice colour combination. Hopefully i can realize my home like this :) Reply LEAVE A COMMENT Cancel reply Comment Design*Sponge reserves the right to restrict comments that do not contribute constructively to the conversation at hand, contain profanity, personal attacks, hate speech or seek to promote a personal or unrelated business.
