Feeling Obsolete

I could have called this post "Working on a Saturday" or "Living in the shop". I could mention feelings of cupidity, obsession and fascination. You see I have been held in thrall by Obsolete for a number of years now but unfortunately I live across the world and have never stepped inside its doors. This fine art gallery, antique furniture emporium and events venue in Culver City, California is a magical mystery tour of the obscure, the strange, the archaic and the beautiful. If you want to disappear down the rabbit hole this weekend then immerse yourself in their website.

Living in the jungle

Over the years Kim and I have been fascinated by the homes of Sera Hersham-Loftus or should I say the reinvention of her homes. The queen of the boudoir look with its seductive, glamorous and over-the-top trappings is also the queen of the quick change, of reinvigorating her glorious spaces. Kim last featured her house a year ago but when I recently visited the Sera of London website, voila, her house had evolved into a glamazon jungle with the addition of even more houseplants than her usual parlour palms. It's spring, only it's inside. I love the look but can you imagine watering day?!

The latest incarnation of Nikki Tibbles' home

Nikki Tibbles is a famous British florist whose home I have featured a couple of times over the past several years here when it was for sale (and didn't sell) and then here when it was up for rent. Now Nikki's 1890 5 story absolutely incredible residence is available as a location property. I would have to put this stunner in one of the top 5 I have featured in the 8 years of this blog's existence. It has so much life and energy, and quirkiness and boldness, and endless personality. Someone needs to shoot a movie here.

It does not get much more hard core than this. A new location property (4300 sq ft victorian semi detached) available via Shoot Factory. I don't think I need to say more. :)

Goodwill Hunting

I had to revisit the home of interior designer Caecilia Potter as it is one of my all-time favourite homes we have featured on the blog. A Victorian mansion in Melbourne, Australia, this home is spectacular in its stateliness, architecture, furnishings....everything. It is EVERYTHING. (Photos: Atticus & Milo and The Design Files)
