Atlanta Bartlett's Other Half: David Coote

A lot of you know about my obsession with Atlanta Bartlett's style... well, it looks as if her husband, David Coote, is on my list now too. They work together on a lot of projects and looking over his portfolio, I recognized a lot of overlapping work as well as a lot of his own that I'd never seen. I'm loving the fun color scheme of aqua and reds in the images above & below. This is about as much color as we'll see in any of his work, as the "white love" seems to run in the family. I'm CRAZY over the books in the fireplace, below. I might have to use this idea in our living room?? (remember our mantle??)

The image below just makes me smile. What a beautiful place & the kids are having so much fun. Love lifestyle pics like this!!

Below is the little guy in orange again. I really love the pics with families in them. it brings some life into the spaces. How great is the mirrror arrangement?

Here comes the white!! The picture below is just so clean & beautiful to me. The Vines outside are so gorgeous and with the all-white scheme, you really notice them. Beautiful outside views justify an all-white scheme for me.

Below is a wider view and how great are these nooks above doorways.... super functional & pretty!
Below, I think is the same room... there are some changes- measuring cups in the nook, wood counters, cabinet hardware, accessories, chairs.. But I think it's the same room...
In the adjoining hallway (below) there's another great nook for books. Love the fresh pink peo
Below is another great kitchen. The beams are amazing and it's jkust so fresh & open. Love the vintage appliances!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the bathroom below! The white paneling, the chandelier, the tub and vintage accessories are perfection! It's just so simple & pure. I'd love to escape in there for a half hour a day!!

The bathroom below is very similar, but with a bit less femininity, and a more rustic feeling.
Below is another great mirror collection. This would be so easyh to do and look how it makes a simple room so special!! Ok and now I really need a slipper tub. asap.

Below is a super-feminine bedroom. Notice the simple nightstand against the curvey upholstered bed... it's details like that that I think make rooms feel less "designed" and more "real."

Check out the guilded chairs by the fireplace...
This is a bedroom in one of the custom "cabins" David designs:

Some midcenturyh details in an otherwise traditional room:

I definitely recognized the image below but had to show it again. Those barn doors are amazing and the numbered prints make the room for me. I love details like the hooks by the door for coats & bags and how easy is a picnic table in the kitchen?!!

I hope everyone's having a great week and thank you all so much for your kind wishes & sweet comments!!
