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.

Vintage lockers 

I love all things vintage, and have wanted to get my hands on vintage lockers for ages. I either have not had the space for them, or have not found any I like. (My pals at Highjinx got some in a while back but they sold within minutes of them posting a photo on FB and IG). In the meantime I can love them from afar, and this round-up of all sorts of locker awesomeness will maybe be a sign that I will come across some soon! :)

As eclectic as they come

I thought this post might cheer Jo up and make her forget she's sick. It is an apartment in a converted Victorian school house in London. With alot of re-configuring to make the space more liveable and bright, and some crazy eclectic designs, interior design studio Avocado Sweets turned this space into a super fun, totally creative and full of personality dwelling for the homeowners. Complete with Penguin book cover wall - look familiar Jo?

Casa Mollino

You have got to head over to All Items Loaded and check out the full story of this incredible home, Casa Mollino, in Turin. Here is a snippet:

A house should be a reflection of both the essential and what is really important to you. If that is the case, good luck with deciphering the home of Italian designer Carlo Mollino (1905-1973 Turin). The apartment located in a picturesque two-story 18th century villa on the Po River, was never his actual home. He simply never lived there. Mollino designed the rooms from 1960 through to 1968 as a lavish and intricate settings for one of his more obsessive photographic interests, female portraits to create an inexplicable, vast collection of erotica.
