UK Locations

Posted on Fri, 22 Aug 2008 by KiM

Happy Friday everyone. To end your work day, enjoy some photos from UK location agency Light Locations.

Today I’m stalking the historic inner city suburbs of Sydney. The properties are 19th century sandstone cottages, age worn but well loved. The first, built in the second half of the century, is squeaky clean and finely restored. It seems a proud little house, comfortable and solid. The other, an 1840’s Georgian cottage, also seems comfortable in its slightly down at heel skin. It’s been restored but not gentrified. Which do you prefer? I’m leaning towards the 1840’s Georgian cottage with all it’s well lived-in clutter. It has a sense of place and time and home.

With muted palettes and strong, masculine, tailored design, San Francisco based Sheldon Keith Trimble creates spaces that are luxurious and elegant but livable and with a great sense of continuity of design. Modern, at times moody the attention to detail and the clean lines are key to his work.


Tracey Butler

Posted on Thu, 21 Aug 2008 by KiM

Tracey Butler of b.home interior design is one lucky lady. According to her bio, Tracey spent several years as a buyer for Bergdorf Goodman and Henri Bendel, then shifted to interior design to spend more time with her children, where she apprenticed for the infamous Jeffrey Bilhuber and worked with Thom Filicia. Impressive! I am dually impressed after having perused her portfolio where you will see “her ability to juxtapose modern & antique, urban & suburban, luxury & thrifty”.

Entry hall inspiration

Posted on Thu, 21 Aug 2008 by KiM

Ashley emailed looking for a bit ‘o inspiration: “I was hoping you could do a post on entry halls. Right now my entry hall is beige and is in some serious need of change. Everything I keep finding is the outside entry, not interior. I can’t seem to find much in the way of examples, but you guys are the experts ;)”. Many people may overlook their entrance hall or just focus on it’s function rather than the design but HELLO????, it’s the first thing people see when they walk in your home. So I’m happy to hear Ashley wants to spice up her boring entry. Ashley, I hope these photos help you to banish the bland beige and spice things up. (Note: My favourites are above)
