Another UXUS project

The folks over at UXUS (an interiors and architecture firm based in Amsterdam that we have blogged about previously here and here) emailed us Friday with one of their latest residential projects. Here is a little bit of background info: The Wilton Residence is a 1930’s hunting lodge located in the historical heart of Connecticut. The home belongs to an American family, who after living in Europe for 13 years returned to the US. The interior is a reflection of their years living abroad with an eclectic mix of high European contemporary design, personal mementos and a classic American style. UXUS wanted to create an invigorating energy by fusing a pioneering spirit with the inherent comfort of effortless style – colonial yet innovative. Inspired by Rustic Luxury and essential beauty found in simple things, every space within the Wilton Residence exudes openness, personality and playful sophistication. I LOVE this home...the mostly neutral colour palette (including lots of white), the modern furnishings that are a great juxtaposition to the exterior, the references to the outdoors through the dining chairs and wallpapers - love the Piet Hein Eek one in the bedroom!!

Where I blog ... my office

Thought I'd show you a little of my office today. The morning light was so lovely the other day that I had to reach for my camera and even now in the late afternoon it's just lovely. You can see more over on my page.

Serge Mouille lighting

On Monday Jo blogged the interior photography of Hallie Burton, and in that post were a couple of photos of a VERY cool light fixture. A reader named Martha asked about it, and I told her it was the creation of Serge Mouille. She noted that since I had already blogged about Jieldé lights (here and here), that I might be up for featuring another French lighting design. I was certainly up for the challenge, as I have coveted Serge Mouille fixtures for some time now. Unfortunately I don't think I'll be owning one of these beauties anytime soon as they are awfully pricey. Damn.

Friday stalking 2

Just a simple little workers cottage in Richmond, Melbourne. Neat, tidy, in need of an update but in all its 80s dowdiness it's the home of stylish hipsters. I'm having fun making up stories about who lives here. She's a graphic artist and works in indie publishing. He works for an NGO and will one day finish those last few subjects he needs to complete his law degree but he's been saying that for years. They laughed about the raspberry carpet when they moved in but they made it work. There wasn't much they could do about the weird doorway as they were only renting but the landlord is cool. He let them paint ... as long as it was white. The first thing they did after moving in was to pop a couple of boards across the ugly bin bay out the front. Voilà! A bench seat perfect for waiting for the taxi. Weird. I seem to know them really well ;) It's a shame the landlord is selling. Well that's my make believe story anyway. Link here while it lasts.
