J Pritchard Design

 


Texan Jennifer Pritchard creates these eerily organic porcelain wall installations and tiles. The richness of the glaze, the texture, the pattern all lure you into a closer look. Lose yourself in the convolutions of her crazy repetitive over and over art.

Sills Huniford

Sills Huniford Associates is based in New York, and strives to create modern interiors using furniture from many eras. I am adoringly drawn to the oversized artwork used throughout their designs, particularly the simple black circle on white (I am trying to figure out where I can replicate this in my home), and the framed chalkboard (unless it's an art piece, then imagine it as a chalkboard - the versatility of it).

Serene

A simple 1960's apartment with modest sized rooms and low ceilings. Normally nothing to get excited about unless renovated by Melbourne's Nexus Design. Serene, sophisticated, filled with classic furniture, an enviable Australian Impressionist art collection and a referential colour palette. Small scale living on a large scale style. Inspiring. See the original post on Nexus Designs here.

Welcome to Greg's home!


Hi Jo,
This is my own apartment where I live. I wanted to show you this because it shows our versatility as designers. We are known for doing spaces with print and colour so this space shows another look, its dark, moody and sexy. With my own space I wanted to express a very personal response which makes this space original as only I own these experiences. I hope you know what I mean. I drew on my Italian/Australian background, basically I was pushing “wog chic"! The baroque chair is from the family home and the chandelier and bed head are pieces that I saw in my uncles houses in the 80s. At the time I thought they where the height of utter revoltingness but now appreciate their beauty and kitschness. I love the irony of turning something that I thought was ugly into some beautiful. This adds another dimension to a room. I wanted this space to be a place where I came home at the end of the day and feel fantastic and when I go to bed to FEEL LIKE Joan Collins snuggling up in my fur bedspread. We all work hard and we deserve to feel extraordinary. Anyway I hope you like this project, there is more to come!
Greg

My new room needs some stuff and things

My new "library" has been painted, and furniture placed after about 6 tries and some lovely post trauma bruising and a hunk of skin now missing off my big toe after I dropped the bookcase on it. So here it is:



Here's the thing. I have spent the last 3 nights (actually and all day Monday because I have Mondays off for the summer, lucky me) looking for funky retro posters for my new room. Can't really find anything that makes me want to whip out my credit card. The following are some I have found that I kind of like, although I'd prefer a couple large pieces rather than a bunch of smaller ones. Unless I buy some picture shelves and just lean 'em...

If I'm not mistaken Pink already bought the second one. :) So if anyone has any ideas - please leave comments. Share your favourite art resources.
