Planting a little retro

Posted on Mon, 23 Feb 2009 by midcenturyjo

House plants are becoming an all consuming passion of mine. I find myself dragging home little pots from the supermarket and losing myself in green envy just outside the hardware store. Today’s retro deliciousness is fitting then Interior Decorating with Plants, by Carla Wallach, Macmillan Publishing, New York, 1976. And please no comments on the phallic symbolism of that cactus in the bedroom!

The Paris-based firm of Laurent Bourgois consists of works in interior architecture and design. They have an impeccable grasp on classic and contemporary styles, and include many ethnic touches (and occasionally modern) in their designs. Below are works that wowed me…2 tiled kitchens with very different vibes, relaxing bedrooms, graphic artwork, it’s cultured yet comfortable.

I posted about Amsterdam’s Kate Hume‘s interior design work over a year ago and when I happened upon her website again, I found many more incredible photos that I had to share. I adore the artwork (it’s Jack!), graphic wallpaper, stunning light fixtures and sleek furnishings.
