47 Park Avenue

Instead of doing my usual blog favourites of late post today, at the last minute I decided to instead feature one really inspiring blog instead. I heard about 47 Park Avenue a while back via an email from one of its creators, Michael, an owner of London based locations company Shoot Factory. Michael and his partner Jonathan purchased 47 Park Avenue in May of last year, a stunning home (with 3 reception rooms! 5 bedrooms!) that was desperately in need of some wallpaper removal, paint jobs, walls knocked out and pretty much a complete overhaul. They've been working very hard to get their home out of the 50's and into the new millennium and while still a work in process, what has been accomplished so far is incredible. The vintage furniture and lighting they have sourced is all TO-DIE-FOR, and everything being painted black and white is just right-on. And their dogs are too cute! Their blog and the progress on their home is a must-follow. (I had to include some before photos so you get the full effect of the transformation).

that's a home in a time warp. something akin to retutning to visit the grandparents - and which took a lot of time and dedication to create. interesting.

I can't help remembering all the period homes that fell into rockstar hands in the 1960's, gutted and tricked out with all the very latest. I love modern decorating, it's exactly what's needed to heal styleless boxes and devolved architecture ... but in 30 years, the new owner is going to be cursing as they try to bring some sense of the gracious past back. But it is very well done, and the dogs are cute.
