Eccentric old Europe

Posted on Sun, 21 Sep 2014 by KiM

When I spotted this home from Spanish Architectural Digest, I nearly had a coronary. This is everything I want my new house to be, but WAY more. It is the Mexico City residence of interior designer Dirk-Jan Kinet and it is filled with glorious colours and beautiful antiques, resulting in a vibe that is MUCH more European than Mexican. I absolutely love the greys on the walls in the dining room with the punch of magenta. It is quite an amazing transformation from what it was last year when it was featured on Freunde von Freunden. I prefer this version SOOOOO much more.

A modern-day Jean des Esseintes. 😉

It seems to be a cross between Mexican and British — a very Tricia Guild sense of colour and textured colour. It's wild!

marie says:

wow, really amazing, very atmospheric

Lauren says:

I re-visit that drool-worthy Freunde von Freunden post… a lot. It looks like Dirk has edited his collections a bit (!). I love how he mixes things up. Something as simple as putting furniture on an angle… (but you already know that!) Thank you for sharing.

I can never get enough of this place, and always find something new to admire and covet. That embroidered skull pillow in the second photo just rocked my day. Make that week.

KiM says:

The tour was a BLAST Suzanne! Jeff and I loved each and every house. You found some awesome ones this year 🙂

María says:

Wow, this house is just perfect. Incredible designs!!!
Lots of love, xx

lauralye says:

I'm pretty sure I would never leave that place!

The magenta colour in the room reminded me of stock-paint when I was at school. Art & Messy. Why not?
