The Collector’s Apartment

Posted on Tue, 13 Mar 2018 by midcenturyjo

An amazing collection of artifacts and sculpture, an oh so chic apartment, a stunning Eiffel Tower view and not one but eight de rigueur Chandigarh Chairs by Pierre Jeanneret. Serious case of envy on my part. I wish I was the collector who lives in this stylish abode. Appartement Rivoli by CSLB Studio.

Welcome to Dennis Severs’ house

Posted on Tue, 6 Feb 2018 by KiM

Jo featured this home quite some time ago but as it is one of the most magical homes I have ever seen I wanted to share it again, with more breathtaking photos. Welcome to Dennis Severs’ house.

Dennis Severs’ House at 18 Folgate Street, Spitalfields is more than just a time capsule. It is both a breathtaking and an intimate portrait of the lives of a family of Huguenot silk-weavers from 1724 to the dawn of the 20th Century. As you follow their fortunes through the generations, the sights, smells and sounds of the house take you into their lives. It was Dennis Severs’ intention that as you enter his house it is as if you have passed through the surface of a painting, exploring with your senses and imagination a meticulously crafted 18th Century world.

Ah Maximalism! Never having to say no to surrounding yourself with what you love. Art, pottery, books and the collections, from treasures to not so mundane mementoes like the remnants of a modern day Grand Tour. It should be chaos but instead this 900 sq ft apartment in Gramercy Park, NY is a celebration of its owner. Design largesse by Alexandra Loew.

A maximalist Paris pied-à-terre

Posted on Tue, 20 Sep 2016 by KiM

Every project of British interior designer Hubert Zandberg gives me heart palpitations and completely blows my mind. His maximalist, graphic and vintage-loving approach to interiors is everything I love about interior design, and this Paris pied-à-terre is yet another example of his brilliance. I need to go shopping with him SO SOOOO badly.

Parisian love affair

Posted on Tue, 30 Aug 2016 by midcenturyjo

Yes my love affair continues. Just one more apartment by Emma Donnersberg Interiors. Oh so chic, so elegant with a wonderful collection of global artifacts including three Tiwi Island burial poles. Such an amazing collection my eyes can’t settle. They are flitting from treasure to teasure.
