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.
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.
Last week I received an adorable pet photo from James van der Velden, and his email included a link to his design firm called Bricks Amsterdam. I nearly fell off my chair when I took a peek at his portfolio. His style ROCKS. James calls it "timeless eclecticism". I love every bit of it - the neutral colour palette of black, brown, white and tan, the overscale furnishings and accessories, the industrial elements and use of linen. That right there is the recipe for great decor (IMHO). James kindly sent me tons of photos from 3 of his projects which I'll be sharing here today and tomorrow. This one is my favourite, and I believe it is James' own home - a penthouse apartment on the canals of Amsterdam. *SWOON*
I spotted the following photos on the website of New York design firm Carrier and Company and had to feature them here. I was drawn to the window treatment in the dining room. It's super casual and works so well in a rustic/country setting. And I have such a strong desire to find a really large industrial sink when we rebuild our house. The sink in the bathroom below is SO cool! (Jo blogged this firm back here).
