Chair porn

Posted on Thu, 30 Apr 2009 by KiM

Last weekend I saw a couple to-die-for mid-century modern chairs that I had to leave in the shops because I cannot justify owning more chairs. This has had me thinking about chairs, and I realized it has been far too long since my last chair porn post.

Purple Area

is an interior designer from Malmö, Sweden. You’ll know her as the creative force behind one of my most favourite blogs . (I’m there everyday drinking it all in.) This is Susann’s home. Gorgeous! It’s quite minimalist, simple and clean but still a wonderfully warm and individual family home. Love that wall of books and yet another example that not all Scandinavian design is white. Oh no it’s all grown up grey in this purple area!

Pethra of the Swedish design blog , wanted to share with us a bedroom she styled for her mom. It’s sooooo pretty, with lots of white and pink accents (my favourite!). In my opinion this is a perfect bedroom to bring in this new season. Lovely Pethra! (see more photos )

WINKS

…. what the real estate websites don’t show you.
Is this my new bathroom?
The rest of the old house has potential but this is definitely a challenge!

    • Inspired by his Norwegian heritage and woodworking traditions handed down through his family furniture designer Andrew Moe has created the Oslo Collection. Every piece in the collection is crafted from reclaimed timber beams. It’s a Scandinavian aesthetic meets Japanese economy of design. The pale blond hue and smooth wax finish just makes me want to stroke these pieces and watch them age with time. More info at .
    • I couldn’t resist. I just had to feature the fabulous eco craftiness of Australian designer . Morgan’s Cast offs range is made from 100% recycled finely woven woollen jumpers and her Play with me range utilises everything from vintage fabrics, designer off cuts, linen & cotton tea towels and tablecloths from yesteryear. Too too cute and vibrantly colourful. I seriously need some of those felt beads for my winter wardrobe.
    • Glam and just a little different? London based website will satisfy your craving for all things silver embossed, french, rococo or mirrored. The papillon silver wardrobe would be gorgeous in a boudoir.
    • I’m in love! I need this green Chinese chair in my life…. now! Oh my, oh my! Celebrate Pagoda Red’s new website and become eligible to win this 19th century Chinese roundback chair.

Robbie is sure to add a little wildlife to any home decor. Great for gifting, kid’s room decor, or just something fun to place around the home or office……..” This isn’t a winkaroo it’s a winkarhino (ooooh sorry about that). Now what could I do with a full bodied rhino?
  • And let’s finish with two blogs. Angie Henry is a stay-at-home-mom/artist trying to make the best and most beautiful out of the everyday. “I love to make the mundane fun. I hope that I can inspire someone out there to be creative and love their home and their life!” Her blog is . Enjoy!Victoria is an interior decorator and artist in Westchester, NY.

My dream home

Posted on Fri, 24 Apr 2009 by KiM

Patrick Flynn is a designer/project manager at , an architecture and design firm based in Oakland, California and he emailed us thinking we’d be interested in a project the firm recently completed (it was in the NY Times yesterday). Interested??? I almost passed out when I saw the photos. This home is so unbelieveably cool and funky and creative and plucked right out of my dreams. I am completely smitten with it. The Victorian duplex is located in San Francisco, and is owned by Claire Bigbie (an interior designer who now designs for the firm) and her skateboarder boyfriend Jay Shapiro. It was renovated to house a creative studio for Claire on the main floor and the living quarters upstairs. I adore absolutely everything about this home, including the incredible blue-black exterior (used to downplay the Victorian embellishments). Thanks so much Patrick for sharing this with us! Every photo below is going in my inspiration folder, and I imagine in many of our readers’ folders too.
