I dream of owning a cabin in the woods, a refuge from city life. If that dream ever becomes reality, I want it to look exactly like the Anderson Island, Washington cabin and snug of interior designer Heidi Caillier. Not many people would go dark like this but kudos to Heidi for taking a risk and completely nailing it. (Photos: Haris Kenjar)
A Sunday dose of eclecticism for your viewing pleasure, care of one of my favourite sources for awesomeness, Shoot Factory. This Georgian country home in Norfolk, England consists of 22 acres, 6 bedrooms, several original fireplaces, and a serious case of the 60’s/70’s with some funky furnishings and wallpaper. Such a beautiful and fun home.
Prepare to be amazed at how funky a Swiss style chalet can get. Studio Shamshiri was commissioned to renovate and restore a 3,500 square-foot Southern Californian estate built by Myron Hunt in 1906. The two-story, single-family dwelling sits on approximately two acres and was one of only fifteen Swiss chalet designed houses built in California during that period. The design concept pays homage to the property’s history, taking notes from the client’s personalities with accents of soft pinks, greens and burgundies. A rich assortment of furniture, textiles and objects strongly influenced by fashion and fantasy completed the character of this home. Photos: Shade Degges
Designers and partners Luke Edward Hall and Duncan Campbell live in an apartment in North London that occupies the second floor of a mid-nineteenth century townhouse. They love of vintage and mixing periods is evident in their home, as well as their love of colour and experimenting with paint. The first group of photos are from Luke’s website when the apartment was a study in green, and the second group are from Duncan’s website when pink and yellow were doing their thing.
Danish fashion designer Malene Birger should have really started her career as an interior designer. Her 1905 Italian stone house on a hillside with views of Lake Como is decorated with the most incredible maximalist, eclectic style that is blowing my mind. Black, white, brown and the most glorious ochre/mustard/spicey yellow I have ever seen, and a divinely random mix of vintage finds from flea markets and auctions around the world.
