Good Golly Miss Molly!

Posted on Thu, 26 Feb 2009 by midcenturyjo

I love revisiting websites where I haven’t dropped in for ages. I love stopping by because I secretly hope the site has been updated. I visited Molly Luetkemeyer’s website recently and I’m blown away. I featured Molly’s interior design work way back in the first couple of weeks of Desire to Inspire but look at her work now! Lashings of OTT glam and goodness. Colour and pattern and vintage and FABULOUS! I had a hard time not posting everything I found…. OK I think I did 😉 Not been to M. Design for awhile? Go now. You’ll overdose on her style!


Hotel Saint Cecilia

Jackie Caradonio wrote us yesterday with the following: “I’m always checking out Desire to Inspire for great images and great interiors as I am an interiors/architectural photographer. I love when you showcase great photographers as it gives me something to strive toward. =) Anyway, I photographed this little 14-room hotel in Austin, Texas, called the Hotel Saint Cecilia recently and thought the interiors were so fun that you guys might be interested in taking a look. Lots of original, vintage pieces mixed with new, hip décor. I’d be honored if you guys wanted to show them on the blog.” WOWZERS. This hotel is so chic, glamourous and fun, and the photos are fantastic. Thanks so much for sharing these with us Jackie! (Check out her website here).

Poster paste

Posted on Tue, 24 Feb 2009 by midcenturyjo

I found this idea in photographer Patric Johansson’s portfolio. Love the idea of pasting posters to the wall and tearing them back to achieve this look. The limited colour palette is striking too. Can’t wallpaper your walls with posters in your home? Think about doing this on a large piece of foam core board or similar and prop against the wall or behind a desk. (Removable adhesive strips would work with the lightweight board as well.)

Sometimes words aren’t enough. Sometimes the pictures, like that good old cliche, do the talking. I am speechless when I look at Patric Johansson’s work. An amazing photographer with a stupendous portfolio. See that’s not enough. You have to go look for yourself at his rep’s site. Love it all.

Even the floor!

Want to paper your space with all those posters you have hoarded over time? Don’t forget the floor! This amazing installation is by Alisa Grifo, a set and interior designer based in New York and Sweden.
