TGIF! Time to end the week the way we started it with more "inspiration" from the 70s. Once again our source is Family Circle Home Decorating Guide. Hundreds of Great Ideas to Beautify Your Home, New York Times Company, 1973. Once again a cacophony of colour and a punch up of pattern. Love them or loathe them one thing is sure. You will always find something retrolicious on Desire to Inspire.
I thought I'd share 2 houses currently for sale in my home town of Brisbane. I’ve been real estate stalking again. The houses are completely different in style but both have wonderful ideas to steal. Colour is the key in both as well as a calm uncluttered feel (even if one is styled in the hoarder's favourite fashion, shabby chic). A well edited room is always calming. The first house is a renovated bungalow with loads of charm. That chocolate wall is to die for. The second is a new build with pops of colour punching through all the white.
AJS Design, an architecture, interior and furniture design firm, was founded in 1992 by Abigail Shachat and is based in New York. Part of her philosophy is "creating spaces that appear more destined than arranged". Her designs are destined to be modern, minimal and functional. Throw in a rooftop cabin in the city (see last 2 photos) and you're all set.
