Okay, so this may be my favourite home tour to-date. While out to dinner with my lovely friend, Liv – she shared this dream of a place with me and it hasn’t left my mind since. It’s the insanely beautiful west village home of Alison Cayne, founder of the cooking school Haven’s Kitchen in NYC and mother of five littles. Each part of her place is designed with the same palette which normally I would find boring but in her space it’s just majestic. I’m immediately thinking of ways how I can inject some more mustard yellow in my home. 2015_03_11_OKL-Ali-Cayne2012crop

Herringbone floors, mantle and floor to ceiling gallery wall have me like whoa.  ali_cayne_home_tour_09 ali_cayne_home_tour_10 ali_cayne_home_tour_03 2015_03_11_OKL-Ali-Cayne2393crop

Clearly she’s not afraid of the kitchen and Iove how she chose the dark grout in both her kitchen and bathroom with the classic white subway tile. VNTG-3030crop 2015_03_11_OKL-Ali-Cayne2388crop

Of course she prefers open shelving – who does that with five kids? A boss does, that’s who. VNTG-3314crop ali_cayne_home_tour_05 VNTG-3137crop

Semi regretting not painting our bedroom black! However, we do not have all that natural light.  VNTG-3081crop VNTG-3111CROP
