I injured my finger this afternoon while snipping hydrangea branches (nearly passed out from the blood and pain!) so typing is not the easiest. We will let the visual inspiration for Serene Ethereal Chic do the talking for the most part I guess! The good news is I have some gorgeous pink hydrangea blooms inside lifting my spirits. Hope your weekend was lovelier.
Oh this amazing kitchen in a Brooklyn home!!! Can’t stop studying its thoughtful design!
Serene Ethereal Chic Interiors
Serene is something I’m ever pursuing, and keeping things spare always helps.
Closets are perhaps the loftiest challenge when you’re after a soft, unfussy, airy look. And yet it is possible!
Isn’t that light blue dreamy? Looks like Benjamin Moore Glass Slipper.
Home offices can be serene too. The light grey is oh so soothing. Try BM Stonington Gray for a similar effect.
Wouldn’t it be fun to incorporate an arched alcove for a bedroom like the one above? All that plaster is serene indeed, and if you’re looking for a color to emulate the look, peek at Farrow & Ball Strong White.

The Swedes know their way around chic serenity!

Wait til you see this gorgeous townhouse tour!
In the London home tour above, I loved the space the owner carved out for her office under the stairs. Here’s another example, and a bright white for a similar look is SW Extra White:
Leanne Ford is the serene queen when it comes to kitchens. The designs are always simple, chic, and minimal yet unexpected. Leanne loves Behr Ultra Pure White, and her current obsession is Behr Crisp Linen.
Old World style and serenity can sometimes be thoughtfully merged.

A design trend we’re seeing everywhere in kitchens is larger pendant lighting instead of lots of itty bitty shades hanging over monstrous islands.
