Interior: Icy Fresh

A beautiful home located in Iceland.

Hello, friends! This week has come and gone so incredibly fast, I can hardly believe that Friday is before us. To me, some Fridays function along the same lines as Mondays—there is always a long, long to do list to accomplish, and a bit of extra coffee needed to do so! I do love Fridays, though, and look forward to enjoying a little down time on Sunday. Do you have some lovely plans in store?








As for this home, I couldn't resist its icy-cool tones, with bits of wood, gold, deeper grey, and berry hues to warm the spaces just enough. And above all else, I cannot seem to pull myself away from the kitchen most especially—with the use of stainless steel, concrete, and shelf displays—divine! And you?

Plus, a warm thank you to those who have liked Leuie on Facebook, tweeted, followed, posted, commented, and shared the news! I truly appreciate it, and wish I could express my heart-felt gratitude with much more than simply saying "thank you"! xx

  10. Such a gorgeous home! I love all of the white and how it has a contemporary mixed with vintage feeling to it. I'm stopping by from Mary Jo's blog by the way- I saw your gorgeous coat and knew I had to come over! ;) I would love for you to visit my blog sometime and I also have a giveaway going on right now-open internationally!

  11. Hello Sarah...
    Thank so much for this post and kind words about this "Icy fresh" home in Iceland.
    ( it means kind'a lot to me, as it is in fact my own home!!! shhh ;)
    The pictures where taken by an Icelandic photographer, Gunnar Sverrisson about 3-4 years ago, (he is very talented). I am producing the Lime-paint that you can se on the grey walls, and we have our home page called : www.kalklitir.com ( for the moment only in our Icelandic language), but we are now working on our new english home page... hopefully ready soon!!
    Thank you Sarah, Lisa my friend, and all of you kind ladies for your comments, so nice...

  12. What a gorgeous home - so elegant and sophisticated. I love the open shelving in the kitchen and the chandelier over the dining table...fabulous!!

  13. I've never considered a slate or concrete look for the walls. Somehow it still manages to give off warmth and comfort. Love the accents as well...feels simultaneously traditional and modern.
