Artists often have the most wonderfully creative homes, yes? After spotting Kirra Jamison’s colorful space in the latest Inside Out magazine, I’ve been craving a serious dose of color, personality and character in my own home. Let’s take a peek, yes?
If you’d have asked me yesterday if it were possible to convert a water tower into a show-stopping residence, I’d likely laugh. Yet today, the joke’s on me after spotting this gorgeous London water tower home…
When I spotted this studio addition in Los Angeles, my mind immediately recalled my dream dollhouse as a child. Perfectly dainty and floral-inspired, I remember wishing for a home just like this one. And although I never managed to hunt down the perfect match (clearly I hadn’t befriended XTEN architecture firm on the playground), I’d say finding this one years later is just as fun.
Don’t you love how the geometric angles sharpen the feminine perforations? A perfect mix of hard masculinity with soft finishes. And with gorgeous views from every angle, the creative blend of architectural elements add so much to the beautiful surroundings.
That’s it, Barbie… pack your bags! We’re movin’ in.

A former campground might seem like the furthest dream home location from your mind, but with a bit of ingenuity, that dusty campground? It can house a hidden gem that’s as drool-worthy as it is inspired.
Surrounded by the picturesque tall trees of the Berkshire, the home has plenty of character. Complete with industrial windows and antique oak staircases, the mix of rustic and modern pair together swimmingly.
But my favorite detail? The interior skeleton is outlined in wood, creating a statement art installation and forever conversation piece.
So beautiful, yes? Proof that any structure can make a house – and any house can make a home.

Some of my favorite spaces incorporate one general color scheme: neutral with a few pops of color. And rarely have I seen the look executed so flawlessly as when I stumbled upon this beautiful family-friendly home at HousetoHome. Care for a peek?:
By far, my favorite space in the home is this bright and cheery kitchen, which is perfectly balanced with white subway tile, industrial elements and vibrant pops of candy-colored hues. It screams style, but also feels lived-in, comfortable and loved. The perfect combination!
In the bedroom, a serene, neutral space is elevated with a quirky photograph and muted neon pillowcases. Proof that even minimalism can showcase a maximum amount of style!
And although I’m always a sucker for subway tile, I love how daring this bathroom looks when paired with bright pops of orange and fuzzy textures. It’s fun and kid-friendly, but will be easy-to-update for years to come should the kids ever tire of the fuzzy navel phase.
So lovely, yes? What do you think of the small doses of color? Too much? Too little? Spill it below!
