I love this long double workstation from the project "Everett House" by De Leon and Primmer Architecture Workshop.  As featured in Dwell October 2011. 

Imagine sitting in a room that was enveloped in one of these warm, glowy Benjamin Moore colors.

Fun stuff!  Ice cube tray from Kikkerland.

David Netto

After seeing this Long Island cottage featured in House Beautiful Oct 2011, it sparked me to do some research on David Netto, the home's designer.  What I love about this interior: how the warm palette and furniture and material selections come together to create a space that's warm and inviting.  It feels like a place where I would feel right at home.

I love this rug.  I want to lay down on it in front of a fire with a book and a cup of coffee.  But I'd have to be careful not to spill!

 Great shelves and counter.  They look like they were excavated out of the walls.  And the juxtaposition of the smooth white Corian with the unfinished knotty pine is wonderful.

 Ahh, my favorite kind of palette.  Simple, clean, natural.

For more info on David Netto check out this interview from Apartment Therapy and this introspective from 1st dibs.  The 1st dibs introspective featured lots of gorgeous photos of his home in LA (by architect Richard Neutra).  Here are a few of those shots:
 Great example of a bar.  You could have a rotating feature inside that floating marble box.

 I love the black lacquered walls.  They act as mirrors in such a bright room.  I wonder what it's like in there at night.

Cubes, cubes, everywhere!

Lovely wood wrapped alcove.

Here are a couple photos of other Netto interiors, for your viewing pleasure:

And lastly, some shots from his baby furniture line for MacLaren.  This is some lovely baby furniture.

Good Ideas

Some good ideas from Royce Pinkwater's apartment, as featured in House Beautiful October 2011.

 An enlarged photo was placed behind glass on the bathroom wall.  This is a nice alternative to tile, and a great way to add unique character to a space.

 I love the framing of this view into the eat-in kitchen.
