Welcome to the home of Rachel Bilson and lovie Hayden Christensen. Rachel is best known for her roles in The OC, Jumper, and now Hart of Dixie…but since I don’t watch too much TV, she is possibly best known to me for her amazing relaxed, boho style.
Her new pad is the feature on this month’s Lonny, I suggest you check it out. Designed by the super talented Kishani Perera, this home is an intermingled yet completely balanced reflection of Bilson and Christensen’s personal styles. It’s beautifully blended with cultured prints, vintage pieces, and simple lines.
Tomorrow is the day that I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time now. We get to hop a plane and escape to Philadelphia for Nate’s bro’s wedding! I can’t believe Memorial Day weekend is already here. (Time just flies when you are remodeling and unpacking.)
In honor of our getaway to the East Coast, I’ll leave you with this dreamy hillside home tucked in Pennsylvania’s Blue Mountains . Featured in AD, this home was designed by Peter Bohlin of the Pennsylvania-based architectural firm, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson. (I’ll have you know that Peter was a graduate of Michigan’s Cranbrook School of Art. REPRESENT!!)
In the article, Peter described the client’s desire for a timeless space. I think I fall in love with the idea of something being “timeless”…that time can pass and it remains just as true, believable, and fabulous as day one. It’s such a hard concept to achieve with all of the trends in the design world. It really makes you think hard about what will withstand the test of time vs. what is a fad.
For me, what makes this home so special is the use of materials and furniture pieces that aren’t fussy or easily dated. This must be why mid-century furniture holds a special place in my heart :).
Bon Voyage! I gotta go get ready for this trip! You will hear more from me when I return. 🙂 Happy Memorial Day weekend!
