Mooseberry design group

Nika Los of Ukraine-based interior and product design firm Mooseberry design group emailed the other day. They have designed some really fun small apartments and while I am getting a computer-generated vibe, this one caught my eye and I had to share. The pastel colour palette is not usually my thing but with the white floors it is very bright and cheerful while being a bit subtle. Add a red Smeg fridge for some oomph and you've got a good thing going here. 

(Sorry - hoping pets on furniture will be back next week. Send photos to desiretoinspirekim[at]hotmail[dot]com)

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)
