Rustic Modern Decor Inspiration {Kara Rosenlund’s Cottage}

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.

    Take me, take me!! Looks sooooo dreamy, something about all white with rustic touches that really does it for me everytime. A dream! I so enjoyed your post Michele, thanks for including me and my house in your very stylish lineup:)

    I want to go, too! Heavenly is the perfect description. It would be impossible not to feel peaceful in such a beautiful setting. XO

    Ohhh my gosh, it IS heavenly. I love the tortoise shell, and the round bread board, and the lucite light fixtures, and the contrast of light and dark, and well.. everything!

    I am always so impressed
    when someone this young
    has such a curated aesthetic!
    Really beautiful and you have
    left me wanting more, Michele!

    I wil pop over and see what
    Homebunch is all about. I feel
    a bit like I dropped off the face
    of the blog planet with my hiatus.
    {That said, it was worth it!!}

    Happy Weekend! Thanks for
    sharing some of your lovely
    summer pearls with me at P&H!

    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.

  20. August 31, 2012 / 11:17 pm

    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.
