A RUSTIC RETREAT.

MOODY MOMENTS.

Read how this couple sort of fell into interior design and just so happen to be really, really good at it. Now operating under the affectionate name Jersey Ice Cream Co., they work sans computers and take a very intimate approach as they inhabit the spaces they're decorating. We love the juxtaposition of the moody dining space pictured and the bright white kitchen in our featured photo with its iridescent backsplash. {image via All Sorts Of}
