Industrial goodness

My love of industrial/vintage items in a home drew me to this 18th century farm in Orgeval, France owned by a former journalist turned decorator and restorer. It's flea market chich at it's finest. Via Art & Décoration.

Wythe Hotel

This is the first of 2 hotels I am really excited to feature today. The first is the Wythe Hotel. Here are some details: Located in the heart of Brooklyn, Wythe Hotel is an 8-story hotel on the Williamsburg waterfront. Built in 1901, this former textile factory has been meticulously converted into a 72-room hotel offering service and amenities yet to be seen in the borough, while the building’s industrial character – like its concave corner entrance, original pine beams, masonry, arched windows and cast-iron columns – has been beautifully preserved. Throughout the hotel, guest rooms feature 13’ high original timber ceilings, oversized windows, radiant heat concrete floors, seasonally sourced mini-bar offerings, custom amenities and works by local artists. Many rooms, including band rooms, bunk rooms and suites, boast floor-to-ceiling views of the Manhattan skyline and East River. In a nutshell this is my dream home in hotel form. From it's location, to the funky industrial/vintage light fixtures, exposed brick walls, vintage bathroom to die for, Papa Bear and Thonet chairs, massive walls of barrister bookcases....

Vermelho e azul e laranja e concreto

Tossing industrial and cuts of colour like a crisp salad. Yes it's Guilherme Torres again. Mirrored ceiling, concrete and brights. It's fun, it's fab, it's fantastic. Studio Guilherme Torres.

Matt Woods and Avido

Hip, cool and clever. Matt Woods again? No this time I'm talking about his design for Avido. Macramé on the ceiling (a Sarah Parkes piece), old brick walls balanced by warm timber counters, slashes of colour and an eclectic collection of classic furniture. Avido means greedy and I'm certainly eager to use some of these ideas in my own home. Photos by Will Reichelt.

A collector's paradise

I saw this home belonging to Greek collector Alketas Pazis on Yatzer and HAD to share. If I was fortunate enough to set foot in this home you'd very likely have to pick me up off the floor because I would have passed out from SHEER JOY AND BLISS. And then a couple of hours later after I had examined every single inch of this space you'd have to drag me out kicking and screaming. FAB U LOUS.
