Seattle-based interior designer Brian Paquette continues to make me swoon over his work – including this magazine-worthy living and dining room he designed in West Seattle. Such beautiful tones of deep green, ochre, black and grey. Moody and dramatic without being too dark.

It’s bed week at #luxuryinteriorsonabudget I hear, so another one of my bedroom for fab team of @marks_and_rowe_interiors and @patirobins – whilst waiting for new pendant lamp and bedding for this room, both in summer delay. Headboard is thrifted only a few weeks ago for £30, and so is the nightstand (£15). I splurge on quality paint and wallpaper mainly, but love vintage furniture, so usually get far on a small budget. Sometimes I splurge on lamps too. πŸ™ŠThis is also my #widn for @ninegreenbottles I was too busy watching Star Wars Rogue One with my boys to tidy much. But this room is sacred. 😁What’s @villabetulablog up to? Want to show off your bedroom for this comp? And @mykindofstyling maybe? Those are some striking rooms! ❀️ #howivintage #scandinavianhome #flowersstylehome #instahome #ourluxuryhome #interior2you #howiboho #interior4all #bohohome #realhomes #middleweekinspiration #howihue #vintagefurniture #interior123 #myhomevibe #howyouhome #rockettstgeorge #currentdesignsituation #finditstyleit #ukensprofil #flowersandotherstories #darksideshow #aastyle #decoração #howyouthrift #dogsindecor #vogueliving #myhomevibe #styleithappy

Would like to say I am sensibly sitting here with Buddy on a Saturday evening but I’m actually in the pub drinking wine and eating chilli con carne. Hope whatever you are doing this evening you are having fun, lovely people! πŸ₯‚πŸ˜˜ PS: finally picked up a frame on my jaunt to @ikeauk today for this amazing banana print by Abi Baikie from @curioegg – LOVE πŸ’› #livingroom #sittingroom #livingspace #interiorstyling #sofa #gallery #gallerywall #art #bohodecor #myhomevibe #interior4all #apartmenttherapy #atmine #elledecor #interiores #interiorinspo #plantsmakepeoplehappy #dogsofinstagram #midcenturymodern #urbanjunglebloggers #colourmyhome #styleithappy #beautifulhomes #mybeautifulmess #todayslovely #currentdesignsituation #bohoismyjam #plantgang #interior_design #howivintage

A pretty good representation of how I feel about this summer heat.

× H E T N E S T V E R L A T E N × Vandaag was het dan zover. Alle kittens hebben een nieuw thuis gevonden. Ze zijn nog 2/3 weken bij ons en gaan dan 1 voor 1 weg. Iedereen was erg meedenkend met onze keuzes, niet elk huisje paste bij het kleurtje waar men voor kwam. De grijze was qua kleur het populairst maar de cyperse tweeling qua kroelgehalte. Maar iedereen is tevreden met het persoonlijkheidje wat zich toe gaat voegen aan een soms grote soms kleine familie. Het lijkt wel gister dat lil nog zwanger was en zat te mekkeren om extra eten. En ik met de camera boven de kittendoos hing. Nu zijn het katjes met een karakter. Nog even genieten en dan toch wel toe aan een stil schoon huisje 🀣😘😻 btw niet schrikken over een week of wat… ze hebben aardig wat van mijn planten gemold 😿😿😾 #home #industrial #industrialliving #industrieelwonen #style #deco #home #showhometop5 #myhome #myinterior #interieur #interior2all #myhometoinspire #showhome #vtwonenbijmijthuis #vtwonen #interior123 #interieurdesign #decorate #mijnhuisje #livingroom #urbanjungle #plants #green #hoarder #inspiration #instahome #instagood #instagreen #plantsofinstagram

It’s raining again, surprise! Off to meet the lovely @hygge_for_home this afternoon with @jtcollings. Looking forward to a dog free afternoon as this little one is driving me mad this morning. So not with it today, I blame all the night shifts 😫 my friend turned up to do my hair and I had completely forgot she was coming. Sorry @glockybird. At least that’s one less thing to do before I head out πŸ‘πŸ½ #frenchiesofinstagram #nestandthrive #instagood #interior4all #conservatory #interiorstyling #interiordesign #interiors #realhomesofinstagram #mystyle #myhyggehome #sassyhomestyle #colourmyhome #scandinavianhome #scandiinspired #howiboho #interiorwarrior #dogs #EarthInspiredHome #bohodecor #bohoismyjam #rusticdecor #ikeaatmine #mypad #pocketofmyhome #apartmenttherapy

Stalking an “almost” church conversion

Posted on Mon, 31 Jul 2017 by KiM

Kim and I love a church conversion. We have shared so many over the years. This “conversion” in Melbourne’s inner-city suburb of Collingwood is just a little bit different. It’s a church juxtaposition, a “house/church symbiosis”, a church and courtyard house Siamese twin configuration, a conversion without converting. The real estate listing calls it “Gothic Revival meets Neo-modernist design”. Whatever you call it it’s bloody brilliant. It’s by Kister Architects and is the architects own home. Watch the video for some insight into the design and also for some great overhead shots that really make the geometry come alive. The price, like the conversion, is OTT (of course) but what else would you expect? Link here while it lasts.

A renovated Victorian in London

Posted on Sun, 30 Jul 2017 by midcenturyjo

I am dying over yet another renovated Victorian location home in London via Shoot Factory. While this one appears to be void of any original features, I can forgive the owners for that thanks to the Togo sofas, the marble kitchen island, the Saarinen tulip dining table, the outdoor space with plant wall, and just about everything else.
