Real estate websites in Australia are SO boring at the moment. The economic downturn has curtailed my stalking. Thank God for those Swedes. This week it's something definitely Scandi but low on the boho. More grown up and elegant but still gorgeous! We all know it's in the styling but doesn't it help if you start with fabulous bones! The architecture is stunning. Sadly I could fit my entire apartment in the salon areas alone. Dream on. Maybe I could cheer myself up with some Josef Frank fabric. The apartment is sold but you'll find it here.
... or maybe you all forgot to remind me. "Jo where are the retro posts?" It's been weeks and weeks since I creaked open a vintage home decor book, swatted away the moths and fired up the scanner. Today's pictures have no particular theme and you'll have to guess which ones are retrolicious and which ones are shocking. Shouldn't be too hard. Images scanned from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 1, Meredith Corporation, New York, 1971. Now just don't let me forget again!
Mark Williams is a photographer who divides his time between the UK and South Africa (lucky guy!). His portfolio is full of eye candy and I love that he always utilizes natural light that allows the spaces to appear realistic. Mark has a penchant for decor as he states in his bio "I think décor should be personal, original and sensitive to the type of architecture you inhabit....Décor for me is a wonderful blend of fashion, design, form and function". This must make photographing such wonderful spaces an absolute pleasure.
