Vintage Victorian

I love this Victorian home in East London. It's full of vintage/thrift finds, it's quirky (pink painted floors and purple wall in the kitchen) and it's got a ton of character. I really like the idea of hanging a great jacket or dress on the wall and framing it with a big ornate frame. Gorgeous!!

Paul Barbera encore


I went visiting photographer Paul Barbera. Well his website not Paul himself. I may stalk my photographer crushes but I'm discrete. Kim has stalked him before but he's been producing more of his edgy work. It's a moody modern grunge versus bright white light battle going on. Never mind which one wins out because all of his work is stunning as his ever growing list of editorials from the who's who of cutting edge shelter mags attests.

Paul Viant

I recently came across the portfolio of photographer Paul Viant and discovered that his interiors portfolio contains photos of a home that is quite a step back in time. It's a very large late Georgian, early Victorian on wonderful acreage in Wiltshire, near London. Perfect setting for a period movie.

Shareen Joel


Simplicity, balance, elegance and proportion. Shareen Joel and her design team take a multidisciplinary approach to their work. It's just not interior architecture. Think creative branding management and product design even Shareen's stint with Ford working on car design. The spaces here are clean and crisp. There is a form follows function, modern minimalist feel but these are not cold spaces. Natural materials or infusions of whimsical and personal touches warm the rooms. I've included some of SJD's retail work as well. I always love checking out innovative retail and commercial spaces. I don't know if it's the industrial design influence or the interior architect one but the joinery details in SJD's work give me goosebumps.

Emma Mitchell

Seems I'm following Jo's lead and here to show off another fabulous photographer's work. This time it's London's Emma Mitchell. Her photos are crisp and bright and have me completely drawn in, staring and taking notes of many perfectly styled vignettes. (A few of these I love so much I'd stick in a frame and have hanging in my home).
