Eames Lounge Chairs

Habitually Chic featured a stunning apartment of Wolfgang Benkhen in Hamburg, Germany. The apartment was decked out in white and natural woods and was decorated in modern vintage furniture with a minimal approach. Amongst all the pictures the herringbone floors really stood out to be a captivating feature all on their own. A Eames lounge styled chair seems to be one chair that gains momentum as the years go by.

White New England Coastal Home

The 900-square-foot Victorian cottage built in 1869 in the historic neighborhood of Martha’s Vineyard was renovated by interior designer Tracey Overbeck Stead and her husband. They managed to retain the existing architecture and an old cottage feel in a completely modernized home.

"I love that our cottage has that raw, original look of when it was built in 1869," Tracey says. Although it needed a few repairs, plus a remodeled kitchen and new bath, she notes that their goal was "to preserve the existing architecture and rediscover its original glory."

A Couple Ways to Get Tracey's Look

1. Decorate With Your Collections- Tracey's  flencing tools, antique harpoons are displayed on the wall.

2. Go For Nautical Touches- An antique ship's wheel is turned into a chandelier. A fishing net gives inspiration to a lamp which adds to that nautical feel of the house.

3.  Work With Traditional Nautical Colors- Tracey spiced up the paint scheme with a sea green and turquoise palette.  See the outside of her home here.  Fabulous!

4.  Add a Touch Of Modern Amongst The Antiques- Check out Tracey's bathroom.  1-inch glass tiles in the shower give this home an updated look, while at the same time, work with the overall beach  theme in the house.

New Hampshire White Lakehouse

White Lake HouseIn this photo: Sheri furnishes the cabin's living room with outdoor finds that can handle wet swimsuits: a wicker sectional sofa from Restoration Hardware and a weather-resistant rug by Dash & Albert. Built-in cubbies store beach blankets and fishing gear, and the ladder leads to a sleeping loft. The walls are painted Strong White by Farrow & Ball.

When Sheri and Gerry Weber went in search of a place to put their boats, the two already owned an 1835 Cape-style house in the New Hampshire community of Elkins. The only problem? Their lake getaway sat a full quarter mile from Pleasant Lake. The Webers—including daughters Lucie, Janie, Ali, Jennifer, and Michelle—had to haul their kayaks and canoes every time they decided to go out on the water.

The family had no intention of buying another house until they lucked into a deal too good to pass up: a 500-square-foot cabin right on the water—one of a group of 1920s vacation rentals being sold off. Read more: Lake House Decorating Ideas  - Country Living

Rustic White Lakefront Home

The sophisticated design of this 2,900-square-foot home in the Berkshires set on 200 ft of lakefront is based on a barn which blends right in with the local environment.

Rustic old beams are paired with modern furniture to create a cozy environment. This all white home creates warmth through the use of wood seen in the architecture.  Windows, and walls are painted in a shade of white, bringing that modern element into the home.
