Freunde von Freunden sneak peek

Zsuzsanna Toth of Freunde von Freunden sent over a sneak peek (with exclusive pics you won't find on fvf) of the latest interview with gallerist Karena Schuessler

"They are earnest and discreet, wear black glasses and have minimalistic furnished habitats. This is a gallerist stereotype. But a walk through the door of Karena Schuessler’s Charlottenburg apartment reveals the exact opposite ..."

You'll have to pay a visit to Freunde von Freunden to see more. Such a tease!

Est Issue 10

photography by Hotze Eisma for Est

The latest issue of Est is live today and what a treat awaits. Creative Director Lynda Evans emailed with a sneak peek. "From a boutique owner's home on Sydney's north shore with a well honed sophisticated style and a steadfast passion for a muted palette, to a young family's country retreat in the hills of Victoria's spa country filled with vintage finds and eclectic pieces and an artists residence swathed in textural artworks and surrounded by the fields of Holland." There is even a  chance to win Hamman Towels from Bedouin Societe! My favourite e-magazine just keeps getting better.

Coffeeklatch extras

Here are a few photos that really piqued my interest on Coffeeklatch...

A black wall is always a good thing. And ceramic deer just make me happy. 

LOVE this industrial cart for storage - especially cool in a kitchen. 

This raw wood flooring is a dream.

Perfect art in a kitchen. 



Coffeeklatch is a creative chitchat, an original and personal way for Magali Elali and Bart Kiggen to go and look for inspiring personalities and intriguing stories. The online magazine showcases pictures and interviews with creative entrepreneurs in their homes, addressing various disciplines. Coffeeklatch stands for slow journalism using a fast medium. A big thanks to Tom for letting us know about this Belgian site/online mag. I am a huge fan of sites like this that tour 'regular' and creative people's homes - like The Selby and Freunde von Freunden, and this one is right up there in terms of quality. Here are a glimpse into several homes they have featured (there are fashion designers, musicians, photographers, choreographers...)

Patrice Bastian and Laetitia Schlumberger and Freude von Freunden

Just like friends of friends. People you get to know but don't really know ... if you know what I mean. Once again one of our friends from Freunde von Freunden have shared a few images from their latest interview and home and office tour. Patrice Bastian, creative director and architect, and Laetitia Schlumberger, fashion designer. An amazing house in the 10th arrondisement, Paris and an intiguing story of creative ideas and lasting love found in China. Just a tease here on Desire to Inspire. You'll have to pop over to Freunde von Freunden to discover more. Photography by Fred Lahache. Story by Léa Munsch.
