Entryway in Christine Gillespie's cozy California cottage
Gillespie's office space
Her prized oyster painting
Sarah Hinckley's painting in Gillespie's lovely breakfast room
This past week, I received the current issue of House Beautiful. The cover story and theme of the issue is cozy decorating for every style. The feature takes us on a tour through 4 homes ranging from a Connecticut farmhouse to a California cottage, all designed by four of the nation's best interior designer whose styles vary from clean-lined modern to quirky whimsical. It is a great read and I highly suggest picking up a copy.
Since I am still figuring out what design style to "call my own", I always love flipping through the shelter magazines and finding my favorite homes. In this issue, that home was the California cottage of interior designer Christine Gillespie (who I couldn't find a website for?). I love her use of art as a centerpiece for all of her rooms from the entryway to the kitchen. As if this house couldn't get any better, when I turned the page to see the breakfast room, I noticed a painting by Emily Amy Gallery artist, Sarah Hinckley! Oh, how I have house envy....anyone else?
