Entries in interior designer (1716)
I can't believe it's over three years since Kim featured James van der Velden of Bricks Amsterdam. A lot has happened in that time ... a lot of fabulous work that is. Like this apartment on the Vondelstraat in Amsterdam. Love it so much I'm scheming ways to move in! You can see Kim's earlier posts here, here and here.
On the blog that is. I'm still waiting for the boat in real life. If I did have a yacht I'd have one just like this refurbed 1961 cruiser by Peter Wilds Design. Warm polished wood, gleaming metal, sophisticated black and white. Pass me my boat shoes and my captain's cap. It's love at first sight.
And here I thought my house had some pretty special architectural details. This Park Slope townhouse was designed by Tamara Eaton, and WOW how I am envious that she was a part of this. I would have had a minor stroke just walking in the door and seeing this absolutely incredible woodwork (for the low price of $2.695 million says this New York Times feature). The Times quoted owner Christina Anderson: I love wallpaper, tufted furniture, nail heads, chandeliers, all that Hollywood glamour. We had a very modern house in Manhattan Beach, and the question was how to fit our mod stuff into a Victorian house. The mix of new with flea market finds with some glamorous light fixtures makes this home not so traditional and adds a youthful spark. My dream home.
