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.
I admittedly spend alot of what little free time I have on Instagram. It is a wonderful place to virtually meet all kinds of creative people. I came across the Instagram account of designer/stylist/artist Maaike Koster of My Deer a while back and was smitten with her home and her style. Here is a selection from her interior/styling portfolio (she also specializes in concept design/branding).
October's issue of Inside Out hits the stands on Thursday and I'm excited. Managing editor Lee Tran Lam has sent us not one but two sneak peeks.
... the home of Table Tonic blogger and shop owner Louise Bell and her architect husband Graeme Bell. It's located on Sydney's northern beaches and is a modernist design by architect Loyal Alexander, who originally lived there. By the time that Graeme came across the home, four families had lived there since. "They were marketing it as a 'knock-it-down-and-build-two', which horrified us," said Graeme Bell. Luckily, his family moved in and saved that from happening. Readers will be able to visit this residence on Wednesday October 29, when it hosts our latest 'Open For Inspection' house tour, as led by editor Claire Bradley and ISCD educator and our panel's style expert Lisa Koehler. Tickets will be available at Moshtix from Thursday. Styling by Jason Grant and photography by Harold David.
I enjoy a perfect, magazine-worthy, no-one lives here styled space but every now and then, I enjoy the simplicity and the normalcy of photos such as these, styled by Germany-based Maria Grossman. You even have a dog on a chair (it is Monday after all) and a dog on a ball/pouf.
