I’d call this eclectic

Found quite the home in London featured on re:location. Those British folks sure aren’t afraid to mix things up.

Finola Inger

When I came across Finola Inger’s website, I was so envious of her career as a stylist. To have access to such gorgeous items, and to display them in such a way that they photograph so beautifully. She’s had 9 years of experience, has worked for Elle Decoration and dabbled in trend prediction, art direction, interior design and shop design. Her talent is evident in these photos.

My sudden love for yellow

Posted on Tue, 17 Jul 2007 by KiM

I have noticed lately that I’m drawn to the colour yellow. I think it has to do with how much I love summer and yellow is such a beautiful summery colour. So I figured I’d do a post on different uses and ranges of yellow. Since I have basically no yellow in my home, this post is inspiration to change that.

Pale yellow walls are so warm and inviting, and would brighten up any room without being too jarring.

One of my favourite shades is acid yellow, for those who are a bit more daring and enjoy bold colours.

Bright yellow walls will bring a smile to anyone’s face but would be tough to decorate (and live) with.

A yellow (and turquoise) country-style kitchen would have everyone milling around while food is prepared.

If yellow walls are too much to commit to, then how livening things up with some yellow art….throw in some red accent furniture for an extra hit of colour and you’re set.

Accents in yellow work with all sorts of colour schemes…reds, greens, pinks, blues, the list is surprisingly endless.

Another fruitful Saturday

Posted on Sat, 14 Jul 2007 by KiM

I got a call this morning from my folks (and grandmother who’s here visiting) to tell me that they were 10 minutes from my house and heading out antiquing and asked if I wanted to tag along. UH……YEAH! To top it off, they were going to the same place where I scored most of my finds the last time. And OH MY, did I score again. It’s kind of dark and cloudy outside so I’ll take the evening to clean things up and post more photos tomorrow of everything in their new homes. Here’s a preview.

Thought I would save the best for last…

But sadly, this is what it looked like 5 minutes after I got it in the door…

Paolo Moschino for Nicholas Haslam

Posted on Thu, 12 Jul 2007 by KiM

There once was a man named Nicholas Haslam who ran a shop called the Nicholas Haslam Shop. He met Paolo Moschino who took over running the shop while Nicholas focused on interior design. The shop became so successful, Paolo began interior design work of his own. These are his photos.
