The abundance of indoor plants, the relaxed, unpretentious style, the soft light flooding in, the play of old silver and crockery against darkest blue, a blend of old and contemporary. What’s not to love? FIG Interior Design New York.

Retro love

Posted on Wed, 23 Apr 2014 by KiM

There is a part of me deep down that will always love mid-century homes decorated top to bottom in retro furnishings. Brazilian architect/designer Guilherme Torres has been featured here several times (my last post here) and often creates vibrant, modern, industrial spaces filled with colourful elements. This time he has the colourful elements in al their glory, but this time the architecture has a more mid-century vibe. Super funky.

Last summer Jo featured two glorious spaces by Swedish interior stylist and decorator Anna Mårselius. Two photos is not nearly enough to get your feet wet so I thought I would share many more. They are all stunning spaces. (I hate blue and that photo above may have me converted).

Tea with friends

Love this kitchen. I just want to sit and gossip with friends over a cup or two of tea. I found this glorious image in the portfolio of über photographer Ngoc Minh Ngo. She has the knack of releasing the spirit of a room in her shots.

There is something about a house that lets the view do the talking. A beautiful, black box sits lightly on the steep block. Interiors are kept simple yet stylish. It’s the use of glass and of the view that makes this home so special. Positive and negative space. Volumes and voids. Public views and intimate space.
