Rustic Modern Decor Inspiration {Kara Rosenlund's Cottage}

August 30, 2012

Kara Rosenlund's Australian
old white cottage on a hill
reminds me of that quote
earth is crammed with heaven.

Prop stylist, buyer, and vintage wares retailer,
Kara's resume is like...major.
From home delivering art masterpieces to
Madonna's home to diving for barnacled earthenware
off the Scottish coast, she is driven by the desire
for beautiful objects for the home.

The ladder?
I told you her place was heavenly.

Anyone else want to move with me to Australia?!?

I'm over at Homebunch today sharing style tips
so hop over  with some love if you have a moment.

Peace to you right where you are.

  21. Crikey...just another reason to take a sledge hammer to my kitchen...I want all white. Not just white cabinets and floors but white granite. Spoiled me.

  22. Michele! This is gorgeous! Those shutters at the top are beautiful as is everything else. The kitchen is amazing. I'm loving the open shelf look and that painting is perfectly placed.

    I need to save this for inspiration as we move forward with a little kitchen renovation.
