Minimalists beware. This British warehouse conversion available through The Modern House (designed by 6a Architects) may induce heart palpitations and shortness of breath. It is FILLED to the rafters with STUFF. And THINGS. And more stuff. And I am afraid to admit this….but I kind of like it. Except for the kitchen. A kitchen with that much clutter would drive me mad. I am however, feeling some plant envy. Details can be found here.
As soon as I spotted this apartment on Shoot Factory, I KNEW it had to be the work of interior designer Sera Hersham-Loftus. This Madame of boudoir chic has brought seductive, romantic drama yet again in this London space. I thought I would start the week off with a BOOM (or maybe in this case a wham, bam, thank you ma’am). 😉
I remember the first time I entered stylist Sibella Court’s bijou shop of wonders The Society inc. in Paddington, Sydney. I was overwhelmed by her wonderful wares. I wanted to hide under a table and only crawl out again at closing time and pretend the Paddington terrace house was all mine to explore. Now my fantasies can come true. Sibella has opened a new warehouse in St Peters and the terrace house is available to rent on airbnb. “An imaginarium… a quiet oasis offering the curious traveller a treasure trove of curiosities, artisan objects & furniture, a vast reference library…” See. Dreams do come true.
This, dear readers, pretty much sums up my dream home. Ah mah gawd. It belongs to British artist Rory Dobner and is located in London. It is perfectly random, quirky, eclectic, vintage and fun. It’s the type of home I could spend hours in scouring every corner to see what surprises I can find. The only thing I’d change is to make the purple settee and chairs a silver or charcoal grey. Yesssssss. Via Elle Decor España, photos by Montse Garriga.
I was shocked to discover recently that we have never done a proper post featuring the brilliance that is designer Abigail Ahern. Jo and I have been obsessed with her for years, as her dark, dramatic and vintage approach to decorating is so appealing to us both. I’m sure most of you are familair with her work and these photos, but I had to share because Abigail ROCKS and I feel the need to sing her praises. (To white or to black…that is the question….)
LOOOOOOVE the penguin lamp above that Abigail designed as part of her new collection for Debenhams.
