Gimme Shelter

July 14, 2013

And, a little deck to get my vitamin D on and I’m good to go.  A simple Monopoly game shaped structure…it can’t get any simpler than that…just enough of a terraced deck and a view stretching out over a gently waving meadow. Take a deep breath and leave the weeks ” crazies” behind. It’s another summer weekend get-a-way. Still, I’m not a fan of the steeply pitched roof, it’s the comforting  shape and the warmth of the dark gray wood exterior that  draws me in. The interior here is intentionally spartan, fully wrapped in OSB that provides a great natural finish that draws from the grassy exterior views…and simply appointed,making it adaptable as guest cottage, gathering place or studio. Too bad it’s located in the UK…I was just about to start loading the car.50b92a1eb3fc4b2a3f0000f7_stealth-barn-carl-turner-architects_-c-_tim_crocker_stealth_barn-2908_copy-528x35250b92a48b3fc4b2a3f0000f9_stealth-barn-carl-turner-architects_-c-_tim_crocker_stealth_barn-2339_copy-528x352

you loose an hour of sleep. To make up for that loss you’d be totally justified investing in new bedding to take you through the Spring and Summer months.  It is no secret that linen is my simplequietmodern fiber of choice so these thick, rumpled natural linen sheets and cases from Fog Linen should do nicely…ensuring plenty of sweet dreams and  restful nights.Foglinen_pcase

If you were lucky enough to call this bedroom yours, you’d be able to take full advantage of that additional hour each day. Perfect.tumblr_miu8dfXZ4x1qd5e3ao1_500_remashhttp://www.archdaily.com/336289/residence-in-keisen-masao-yahagi-architects/
