Kate Hume

Posted on Thu, 10 Jan 2008 by KiM

Kate Hume lives in Amsterdam and designs furniture, mouth-blown glass and interiors. Her style is incredible. Modern and luxurious, with lots of fun contemporary art. Her work has been showcased in museums and exhibitions around the world and featured in magazines like Architectural Digest, Elle Decoration and Metropolitan Home. So hard to choose only a handful of photos to post…

I want to live here and there

I love losing myself in my favourite magazine websites and one of the best is Marie Claire Maison. I really love the home of stylist Marthe Desmoulins. A modern colourful reworking of a 17th century building.


The second home I would move into immediately looked very familiar to me until I realised that Kim had posted about it back in March. Now there are more photos of this Amsterdam home on the Marie Claire Maison website. With grey one of the major trends for the coming year these fashion forward interiors are definitely worth a revisit.

Andrej Kopac is a Toronto photographer who has shot for Canadian House and Home magazine, which explains why his work is so familiar to me. The photos are memorable.

How do I begin to describe my admiration for David Loftus’ body of work? This extraordinary photographer has an amazing ability to capture the beauty of light and shadow as well as enriching the personality of the spaces, places people and food he photographs. I’ve featured just his interiors here but don’t miss the rest of his portfolio especially the food and objects he has captured. Beautiful!

Dublin dog

Posted on Wed, 9 Jan 2008 by midcenturyjo


Nathalie of design undercover sent me some photos of her dog Ashley during her Christmas break. “I showed her the Desire to Inspire dog on the chair features and she would love to be in it 🙂 These Yorkshire Terriers are so vain ! hee hee.” Ashley is too too cute Nat and definitely deserves a dog on the chair post (or on the counter for that matter).


When I popped over to her blog to catch up on what she was up to I saw a photo of my prints in her Dublin home. How cool and how weird to see my work on the other side of the world.
