After years of living in bright white spaces – which I always have and always will adore – I’m finding myself drawn to warmer, more textural spaces – just like this home designed by Crystalyn Hummel. I don’t know if it’s working on the Hood Canal Cottage, the pending winter, or simply the desire to try something new but give me all the wood-wrapped spaces right now!
Selecting a beautiful honey-toned wood keeps this home feeling open and airy instead of dark and closed in. Adding clean, minimal, and modern accents – from the stone selected for the kitchen to the lighting (all Apparatus Studio here) adds a distinctly elevated feel to each space.
You know I’m a huge fan of the extra-wide plank floors. I’m putting something similar into the Hood Canal Cottage and I cannot wait.
The bedrooms and casual spaces continue to use wood but balance it with matte white walls to give the house a breath of fresh air. Iconic modern furniture from Faye Toogood, Menu, Gubi and others.
Adding yummy texture through Moroccan rugs and nubby pillows help add cozy comfort to the sea of hard surfaces.
The picture window for the bathtub in the house’s main bathroom is a dream. And I’m still very enamored with the extra thick bathroom counters and contiguous sinks. The clean lines flow so beautifully. Do you love it too?
This home is a perfect example of how restraint, consistency, and curation can create a minimal yet warm and welcoming design. This is a huge inspiration for me right now. I hope it is for you too!
