Gelati spotted rooms of fun

Neither Kim nor I have kids. It goes a long way to explaining why we don't feature children's rooms on Desire to Inspire. (Besides which Kim's twin sister Julia has a great kid's design blog the boo and the boy so why compete :) The trouble is when I came across Petite Vintage Interiors by Belinda Kurtz I started oohing and aahing and gushing. I stopped short of wanting to have a child. I'll just have me some of the gelati spotted, vintage fun instead. I wish my room had looked like this when I was little.

Sugar coated almonds

"This light filled harbour-side location and the client's artistic background enabled us to explore subtle pastel hues mixed with a more artisan approach in detailing the Woolloomooloo Bay apartment. The selection of lime-washed timber floor boards paired with soft pistachio and grey hues created a tranquil and calming environment".

Hilary Robertson's home

You may remember Hilary Robertson's Brooklyn brownstone from the cover of a Living Etc. magazine a while back. I swear this home will be forever etched in my memory as one of my favourites of all time. To my shock I realized we had never featured it in its entirety here. I just had to. It is so damn gorgeous, and almost everything in it is a thrift/flea market/antique market find. So dreamy. So inspirational. (Photos via Hilary's website and Trevor Tondro for the NY Times)

Pastel confection

Her name is Sophia. She is an artist, she is single but casually dating a couple of guys right now trying to figure out what she wants in a forever man. She loves a cocktail or 2 in the evenings, and loves to curl up with a glass on one of her white sofas with an interior design magazine, and turns the TV on to a rerun of Sex and the City. She has decided to sell her duplex flat situated over the top two floors of this period property in Earl's Court, London because she's bored with this flat and wants a new place to start fresh. Perhaps one with period architectural details, and maybe next door to Mr. Right....or Mr. Wrong. ;) (Details of this Savills-listed flat here and here
