Emma Thomas update

Posted on Thu, 31 Jan 2013 by KiM

I am totally in love with the portfolio of interior stylist Emma Thomas. Her portfolio has brightened up significantly since 2010 when Jo blogged her work. Each space is perfectly decorated with just the right touches to wow but not overwhelm. I just want to climb into the bed above and have a loooong nap.

When can I move in?

Just a few of my favourite things. Beautiful old house, great mix of vintage and designer furniture, wonderful art, colour and books. Winner for Residential Decoration at the 2012 Australian Interior Design Awards, Huntingtower, Hawthorn by Atticus & Milo. Humour, whimsy, warmth and history. Wonderful elements for a family home.

A 17th century barn conversation in Waiblingen, Germany, Atelier S is a studio and exhibition space. Rustic elements were retained and restored (the building was in danger of immenent collapse) while a modern staircase sculpture leads to the second floor. By Stuttgart based COASToffice… bringing together the past and the present, rustic and sleek.

Annette’s apartment in Oslo

Posted on Wed, 30 Jan 2013 by KiM

Back in the summer I blogged the beautiful work of interior designer and photographer Annette Nordstrøm, so I was excited when Annette emailed the other day wanting to share with us her dream apartment in Oslo, Norway. I can see why it’s a dream. It has fantastic architectural details like huge windows, arched cielings, exposed beams, old radiators etc. etc. Annette and her stylist partner Christian have created such a stunning home, utilizing many pieces of furniture that were inherited or found at auction, mixed with Moroccan details for an eclectic, global vibe. The neutral palette, mix of textures and patterns along with the architecture has me completely smitten.
