Eclectic on a Sunday

It has been a bit of a crap weekend so far - I am dealing with my second cold/throat infection in a month, and I spent 11 straight hours yesterday finishing up painting my living room (all I have left to do are the alcoves on either side of the back window once husband builds and installs shelves). It looks fantastic and I am really pleased. Photos to come once the room is complete and put back in order. And on a side note of happenings around here, I have a kitten rescue scheduled for Thursday (gawd help me) and a trip to Montreal Friday to pick up some vintage chairs for my dining room (!!!!). Anyway, it's 5 am and before I head back to bed with the cats I leave you with one of the most eclectic homes I have seen in a while. It is located in Barcelona in a building built in 1910, and was formerly a jewelry shop. Now it is home to the owners of an antique shop - which makes complete sense once you see the fabulous interior. It is furnished with such random pieces from different eras yet somehow it all works.

Eccentric old Europe

When I spotted this home from Spanish Architectural Digest, I nearly had a coronary. This is everything I want my new house to be, but WAY more. It is the Mexico City residence of interior designer Dirk-Jan Kinet and it is filled with glorious colours and beautiful antiques, resulting in a vibe that is MUCH more European than Mexican. I absolutely love the greys on the walls in the dining room with the punch of magenta. It is quite an amazing transformation from what it was last year when it was featured on Freunde von Freunden. I prefer this version SOOOOO much more.

Stalking a modernist gem

One of Australia's most significant post-war houses has been listed for auction and of course I'm stalking it. Boyd Baker House, was designed by one of Australia's most significant Modernist architects, Robin Boyd in 1966. Since then it has had only two owners. Perhaps I could sell my soul to the devil to become the third. Maybe I can rob a bank before the auction at the end of the month. Perhaps I can just be content to stare at the pictures and wish its new owner well. Lucky sod. Link here while it lasts.
