...like the Chicago home of Jim and Kari. Jim found us through Blogger's "Blogs of note" section and thought we might like to see photos of the 50's home he and his wife are redoing. The photos he posted on his blog are so awesome I had to post them here. I am in the process of looking for a new home and if I came across something that looked like this I would drop dead (probably because I wouldn't be able to afford it). So here's a peek into Jim and Kari's modernized 50's pad.
I received an email the other day from Romesh Naik, who introduced me to the interior design work of Marcel Prins. Marcel's photos on Flickr are very intriguing. The following are of a house in Munich with walls covered in 24 beautiful colours of metallic paint.
Here we are together at last ...... and this is where we’ll be from October 1 for the week. Yes we’re guest blogging on design*sponge! How exciting!!!! But don’t worry we’re gluttons for punishment. We’ll still be posting here for the week so it’ll be a double dose of desire to inspire. ( As Kim and I have never met I thought I’d draw us together. It’ll be a while before we can get together for a photograph!)
P.S. Kim's the one with the short hair.
Washington DC interior designer Whitney Stewart has a sparse website but what is featured there and in the articles linked to it are beautiful rooms, serene and elegant. Her work blends clients' needs and preferences with her eye and instinct, honed over 30 years. "Period and modern. This or that texture. Dark or light colors."
I started the week with a holiday destination and I think after such a busy week here on the blog we should head off to a new relaxation spot. This time we're booking in to Domaine des Andéols. This village of chic guest houses in the heart of Provence. The nine houses of the Domaine des Andéols are all different, all exquisite. This format doesn't do the hotel-villa complex justice. Feast your eyes and imagination by checking out the website.
