    At home: Jordana Brewster

    It seems that lately whenever I see a new In Style magazine on the shelves, I immediately flip to the back in search of a beautiful interior and features like this one are exactly why - every now and then there is something amazing. Jordana Brewster's 1960's A frame home is stunning architecturally, with tall, white washed cathedral ceilings and soar and inside, there is a soft, breezy feeling of laid back California cool. If there is something positive to come of the fact that there have been so many Fast and Furious movies, it must be that Jordana Brewster was able to create this beautiful space.

    The upper loft really is the perfect sanctuary, tucked up above the living space and boasting a few that seems to stretch for miles. I love that the wood on the ceilings has been whitewashed to soften it, but not completely, so the warm natural wood tones still come through.

    The white spiral staircase has an airy, sculptural feeling against the strong straight lines of this A framed space. I love the burst of bright orange from the cabinet. These bright spots of colour (in the cabinet, above, and books, below) keep the space from too neutral and add a bit of edginess and fun.

    The neatly folded throw at the foot of the bed and the swimming pool seem to be exactly the same shade of pale aqua blue.

    It seems the whole home is designed around the concept of seamlessly living indoors and out with ease. Definitely a bonus of living in a warmer climate.

    From the open, lounge-y living area to the bright kitchen, this space seems perfect for entertaining friends. The glossy pale grey kitchen cabinets are a beautiful, subdued alternative to all white, but still look crisp and clean. (Well done to the stylist who added the wispy cherry branches - they were just the perfect touch!)

    I liked this feature too - and not just because I saw my name in print. ;)

    Sharalee, what a home! I love the white staircase and the architecture is stunning. Cosy, chic, interesting and not contrived. Very nice.

    I am back from my whirlwind trip to Sweden. Hard to get back ino blogging but good to be back here! You will see me more often.

    Warm hugs to you,


    P.S Are you still in NY? I am meeting up with a few blog friends in NY this fall. Would love to include you!


    What an amazing home! I love the architecture as much as I do the interior. Wow!

    I am putting this one in my treasure chest as there is so much I like here!
    Thanks for sharing.
