Jennifer Mabley and Austin Handler are a husband-wife team of designers based in New York who focus on designs for homes in the Hamptons. Their style is very modest, clean, contemporary...timeless classics. I think my favourite piece has to be that silver tub. How glam!
We say over and over again when we feature a certain photographer’s work that we love their use of light or their depth of field or their composition or any myriad of things. Basically we just really admire their body of work and their amazing talent. It’s the case with Kim Cornelison. I love her work, not just the interiors, all of it! Take the time to check out her website. Inspiring!!
Jane Cumberbatch was once a decorating editor of British House & Garden magazine, style director on leading publications including Elle Decoration, and has now taken on a philosophy of simple living, and written several books on the subject. Her website, Pure Style, includes some beautiful photos that are summed up in this "DNA of Pure Style: Romantic, inexpensive, natural, simple spaces, functional, easy feasts, homemade, thrifty, timeless, cool, country, family, going green, modern..." These photos really make me want to declutter, and whip out a can of white paint...
I know, I know. I'm a little late with your retro fix this week. In honour of Kim who is up to her armpits in last minute jobs before she puts her house on the market I've scanned some fabulous retro chair porn. Once again from the indispensable The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 8, Greystone Press, New York, 1971.
Designer Rugs sent us an email about their new range of rugs by Georgina Chapman of Vixen. Georgina is a fabulously talented Australian fashion and textile designer. We gave a sneak peek of the rugs in our WINKS last Saturday but today I wanted to feature more of Georgina’s work. If boho modern is your thing visit Vixen’s website. You’re in for a treat. Lush patterns and fabrics not only in clothing but in a home wares range as well. Check out more of Designer Rugs’ range as well. Gorgeous rugs!
