Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi

Posted on Wed, 30 Sep 2009 by KiM

The interior design firm of Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi has been creating spectacular spaces all over the world since the 60s, from private homes in London, villas in the south of France and Greece, chalets in Switzerland to a loft in New York. Whatever style and location, each space has a huge wow factor. I adore their ethnic-designed spaces. Such stunning furnishings and beautiful fabrics such as ikats and suzanis. I could stare at these photos for hours and dream of far away places…

Brian Park encore

Posted on Wed, 30 Sep 2009 by midcenturyjo

Straight from my email inbox to you. Brian Park (definitely one of my photographer crushes… see how I gush here) emailed with a link to his latest interior work, photos of the Hamilton Design Associates’ Hampton Showhouse master bedroom sitting room. Wow! Talk about brave colour and pattern mix. It’s edgy and fun and Brian captures the room so well. I was also taken by his shots of this house in Bellport, NY also by Ellen Hamilton. It’s a completely different look and feel but Brian brings it to life for us. It’s light, bright and casually elegant. Don’t miss the rest of Brian’s portfolio. And equally stunning is Ellen Hamilton’s portfolio! A must not miss.

Amie Weitzman

Posted on Tue, 29 Sep 2009 by KiM

It’s been a long time since we’ve shared the works of New York interior designer Amie Weitzman, so I thought it was time to delve into her world again. It’s all about classic and contemporary style, particularly with furnishings and architecture, with a modern take on it, using bold artwork, colours and patterns. The result is chic and sophisticated.

The children’s rooms Amie has designed are SO stylish and not overly childish (hence long-lasting) that I wanted to make specific mention of them. Really cute!

Can I live here please?

I was messing around in Messana O’Rorke’s portfolio the other day (as you do) and fell in love with this farm cottage and addition (Ten Broeck Cottage). It’s a bold but simple juxtaposition of old and new, classic childlike house and believe it or not a trailer home as inspiration. Each building stands alone yet interconnected respecting the other. Simple minimalist lines from the 18th century and the 21st. Stunning.

Georgian country house

Posted on Mon, 28 Sep 2009 by KiM

Here’s a little peak into the family home of UK writer Polly Kelly. The home features a large Georgian house, a coastal beach hut and New England-style stable. It’s gorgeous and is featured on many pages of Atlanta Bartlett’s book “easy elegance” (photographed by Polly Wreford), and is available for hire for photo shoots. Each space has so much character, charm and such wonderful bones (the stone and wood floors = YUM!!!) that you could easily pull off any number of styles, like Polly has.
