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).

Mid-century Parisian chic in Monaco

An apartment in Monaco can only be one thing - STYLISH! This mid-century vibing pad has a Parisian chic vibe that I have come to expect from Monaco-based architectural duo Humbert & Poyet. The lighting throughout this space is fantastic - especially that spunik light over the dining table. WOWZERS!!!

Traditional love

Where you expect a chandelier to be hanging in every single room. Traditional, classical, ornate, fancy schmancy, by British designer Robert Kime. (I need to find a huge sparkly chandelier for my dressing room - I am especially desperate for one now with this post).

A Park Avenue loft

I am a big fan of New York City-based interior design firm The New Design Project and was stoked to hear from them about this new project. This absolutely stunning loft is a dream and furnished impeccably, including a collection of lighting that is to die for. Fresh and serene, this is a Park Avenue loft with a decidedly downtown feel. The space is refined and elegant but modern and relaxed. Sculptural lighting, such as the Lariat 3 by Apparatus Studio and String Light by Michael Anastassiades, adds drama and emphasizes the high ceilings, whilst oversized artwork and bold textiles, such as the Diego rug by Eskayel, add color and depth.  Iconic mid-century pieces inspired by the designs of Hans Wegner, Poul Kjaerholm and Eero Saarinen, are paired with more contemporary custom millwork, such as the black and brass floating wall shelves, floating upholstered bench, and marble and black oak nightstands.  A curated collection of accessories in a mix of sizes, shapes and materials, completes the scheme.
