Friday Feature, The Poor Sophisticate

 The Poor Sophisticate, creating beauty inexpensively, is the feature this week. Molly and her husband, recently transplanted from California to a little village in Germany, are trying to create a new home in a contemporary apartment with just enough rustic accents to feel like their home. Molly shares beautiful pictures of the countryside while trying to soak up the design, culture and foods of her new home.

This is one of the castles they visited. I’ve never been across the ocean so I really enjoy the pictures Molly shares.

Let’s take the mini tour of their gorgeous apartment….

They were lucky to find a landlord who allows them to paint, add shelves and change light fixtures. The IKEA shelves look like they were always there. Be sure to check out the before pictures of this kitchen. It was dark, but they transformed it into a light and inviting space.

There is a view of the German countryside from the kitchen window. I am jealous.

kitchen wall

I think she has succeeded in adding a little rustic charm to this contemporary German kitchen. I like those cute pitchers on the wall.


Grey and cream stripes in this beautiful hallway can also been seen from the kitchen. Under the spiral stairs is a bar area.

What a beautiful space!  I love this eclectic collection, it was what first attracted me to her blog.

In Molly’s words,  “I like things to go together and compliment each other, but don’t like things to match perfectly. I am most comfortable in a space that looks like things have been collected over time, not all ordered out of a catalog.”

Inexpensive medallions make a bold statement on the living room wall and help to anchor the space. Notice more rustic accessories.

A DIY pallet table adds tons of rustic charm.

I’ve been seeing a lot of tree stump tables lately but not one that’s painted silver. Rustic luxe, perhaps?

On The Poor Sophisticate you’ll find tutorials for flavored sugars, vintage cake pedestals and a beverage bar just to name a few…there are many more.

Molly is an interior designer who has assisted with a Williams-Sonoma Cookbook and Pendleton Wool Catalogue and also offers design services through her blog. Grab a cup of coffee, you can spend some time there, across the ocean!

Thanks Molly for allowing me to feature your blog!

I’m running a little behind this week, the invasion of the zucchini continuesConfused smile The family room reveal is coming, I promise.
