A home filled with art in Moscow

This fabulously eclectic newly-built home filled with art is located in Moscow and was designed by Anna Erman. (Note: there are a couple of dead animals pictured for those who take offence). Lots of quirky art pieces are displayed throughout the home but my favourites are the chandeliers over the dining table (by Winnie Louis). Nothing floats my boat more than statement lighting! The lighting over the pool is also fabulous I must point out. Via Architectural Digest Russia, photos by Stephen Jouillard.

NAP Żoliborz - an architect's showroom

On Sunday I featured some work by NAP from Poland. They also sent along photos of their architect's showroom and workspace and I am absolutely blown away buy this space. Dark colours, a mix of vintage and modern, original architecture (original window joinery, doors, jambs, wooden floors and layout of the rooms were preserved in the renovation)...it's a style I always gravitate towards. NAP decided to paint the wood floors and stairs dark, and this led to shades of grey, graphite and peach used throughout. All furnishings and accessories are available through their store - a mix of Vitra, DCW Editions, Gubi, Carl Hansen, Tom Dixon with EMU, Fatboy and Fermob in the garden space.

Lampe Gras

We don't often feature products on the blog but when the company includes photos as fabulous as these of their products "in situ" I have to share. These make me want to buy TOUTES LES LAMPES. Lampe Gras. Possibly overtaking my love of the Jielde.

Books and bulbs

I received some really great books recently that I wanted to share with you today (I LOVE BOOKS!!!) and I didn't think I could ever get excited about light bulbs, but it happened!

I will start with a book by Sara Emslie, a London-based interiors stylist and writer, called Urban Pioneer with photos by Benjamin Edwards and published by my favourite Ryland Peters & Small

The book features incredible interiors that take their inspiration from industrial design. It provides an in-depth look at twelve inspiring homes that were originally non-residential and have since been converted. Exposed brick, copper piping, bare roof trusses, concrete floors...all the elements of industrial spaces that make my heart skip a beat. I adore this book and am adding it to my coffee table pile.

Working on a Saturday

As I say week after week if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it's somewhere stylish ... like this office by Dutch interior design firm Studio Slow. Love the Formakami pendant lights by Jaime Hayon and the deliciously refreshing minty green paint (Aresenic from Farrow & Ball).
