Sunday vintage

Posted on Sun, 2 Nov 2014 by KiM

The last few days have been a little crazy. I thought I was going to rescue kittens on Thursday but the plan backfired. The husband and I drove to Montreal Friday to pick up our new tulip dining chairs (and ended up also bringing back a headboard and bedside tables), then we spent the evening at Ikea because we found out one year that Halloween is the BEST day to go. I bought a new desk there that turned out AWESOME (photos to come soon). Yesterday we went to the Third World Bazaar, which I should point out is only open for a handful of weekends around Thanksgiving every year so there are only 2 left, and I scored some gorgeous kilim rugs to hide my icky yellow/orange stained hardwood (photos of that soon too). Today I have to paint the living room alcoves (I was supposed to start yesterday but ran out of time) and then it will finally be finished! 4 freaking weekends! AAGGHH!!! Needless to say I only had a few moments to spare to find something to blog today. I came across this apartment and had to share mostly because it is a chair porn extravaganza! The space, located in New York, belongs to stylist and designer Marcus Hay and was featured in Architectural Digest Russia. Marcus is a collector, and he is very smart about grouping his collections in small vignettes so the compact space doesn’t look overcrowded. 

Stalking leftovers

Posted on Sat, 1 Nov 2014 by midcenturyjo

It’s that time of the week again. Stalking leftovers. Lovely homes? Yes… well… er… maybe. You see I am very finicky when it comes to my virtual real estate stalking. Fussy, particular, choosy, picky and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or the other way around, can’t quite put my finger on it listings but all with something that has me nodding “yes”. This week I’m drawn to colour, bathtubs and wishbone chairs. All via realestate.com.au.
