Home envy: Marlien Rentmeester

Marlien Rentmeester in front of her house

Marlien Rentmeester is a New York transplant living in LA, a former West Coast editor of Lucky Magazine and currently the writer of the fabulous fashion blog Le Catch. This lady not only has style in spades, she also lives in the most gorgeous house EVER which was featured in Lonny Magazine. The interior was designed by her friend Hillary Thomas, and the result is lust-worthy. The house is the perfect combination of comfort and chic, gorgeous colours and fabrics balanced by calming white walls in most rooms. This is a house you want to live in, can live in without fear of wrecking the place.
It has the added bonus of being located in sunny Southern California, which in itself is enough to turn a Northern European like myself green with envy.

This etagère is awesome. I've decided to hack an Ikea Vittsjö shelving unit by painting it gold to achieve the same effect.

This children's playroom is AH-ma-zing! Those blinds are so much fun, and I'm crazy about the pale blue grass cloth walls. Bet my kids would wreck this place within five minutes though!
