Welcome back! We’ve got quite a mix of inspiration this week, including an enviable workspace, an ancient craft, some Project Jenjamin plans, and two homes: one amazing, one ridiculous.
This is quite an office space. While we’d love to see it busy and full of people, we can imagine it’s a pretty incredible place to work. We love the wood accents placed on the diagonal, the balance of black and white with some truly gorgeous botanicals, and that mirrored meeting room? Wow.
We recently learned about the Japanese art of kintsugi: repairing pottery with a lacquer + metallic powder, embracing the history of the object. We’re particularly struck by this modern version using a hot pink mix. It really drives home the notion that “imperfections” can be truly stunning.
Ben surprised me by painting our kitchen while I was out of town this weekend #swoon, and I am SO. EXCITED. to keep making kitchen updates! I’ve been percolating kitchen plans for so long, but hadn’t found any tile that I loved for the backsplash. Until now. I am OBSESSED with the Zaha 8 by Tabarka Studio. It’s simple, geometric, and a little bit modern. And there are 3 places in Atlanta that sell it, so…
This house is just so beautiful. There are too many incredible details to pick a favorite, but we’re particularly enamored with the swing, those totally unique brown leather chairs, all of the beautiful tile work, the amazing mix of textures, and the most incredible faux(!) plants you’ve ever seen.
If you’ve ever wanted to know what the most expensive home in the country looks like, you’re in luck. This 38,000 square foot home (a mere $250 million) boasts 12 bedrooms, 21 bathrooms, fitness center, spa, 40-person movie theatre, bowling alley, and a $30 million fleet of cars. Parked in the foyer. An an un-flyable helicopter on the roof. It’s a study in complete excess. But the view is rather incredible, so there’s that.
So while you’re thinking about how you’d spend $250 million on a house.. enjoy your weekend!
