I am a HUGE fan of photography as art - the graphic nature of it, the realism, the fact that if you can take a decent photo it's an easy DIY art project, you can blow them up to make statement pieces. Black and white photography can be beautiful in any space in your home. Whether hung in large groups, enlarged or simply a subject that really draws you in (there are a few quirky ones below), it's eye catching and honestly, it's pretty tough to screw up. I'd love to have a family gallery wall in the near future, consisting of a row of 9 black and white photos - one of myself, my husband, and each of our cats. :)
When is a hotel not a hotel? When it is an unhotel. A home that is let when the owner is away. Home and away. Take this stunning Georgian townhouse in Thurloe Square in London. On trend interior design, fabulous position, great art, floors of stunning rooms and style, style and even more style. You can live the owners life for a few days. pretend it's all yours before you head on your way. All the advantages of a hotel including the bottles of shampoo to steal but in a property that is quirky, luxe, exclusive and delicious. Thurloe Square via onefinestay.
I'll start this post by saying that I would happily move into Les Interieurs' studio in Newport Beach and blissfully live amongst the stock. I adore Pamela Makin's work. Remember this ...
from this post? I didn't think it could get any better. Well it has. New work from Les Interieurs. I think of it as night and day. Black, white and natural. Tribal, timber and art and artifact. It's just perfect. The homes today are moody and black or atmospheric and naturally neutral ... or both. Perfect.
Polish design is centre stage again. The creative scene in this country is hot hot hot at the moment. Case in point this stunning private home by 2kul Interior Design. mixes the right on trend black and white with layers of natural finishes, rough luxe and texture and revs it up a notch with an amazing industrial effect balustrading to the staircase. It's a clever mix of old and new and the perfect hard edged modern foil to a softened, almost shabby meets scandi vibe.
