Hello Marcus Lawett. You don’t know me but I feel like I know you. You’re my new photographer crush. Well not so new. I’ve loved your work for a few years now. Your photos blow me away.The unusual angles, the interesting points of view, the depth of field, the light, the way you include a sense of movement. Brilliant!

A really cool Brooklyn townhouse

Posted on Thu, 20 Nov 2014 by KiM

I don’t know how I missed the reveal of this incredibly awesome townhouse last year in the New York Times. Owned by Beastie Boys’ Mike D, he lives in this 3200 sq ft Brooklyn home built in 1853 with his wife and 2 boys, and they spent 6 months and about $500K on renovations. The result is phenomenal – eclectic and funky decor that works so well with the traditional architecture. I love all of the touches of brass throughout (especially the kitchen *GASP*), and the fun Brooklyn Toile wallpaper (from Flavor Paper) was designed by Mike. I could just pack up my clothes and the cats and hubby and move right in without changing a single thing.

Beating the heat with green

It’s crazy hot right now where I live. My thoughts turn to ways of beating the heat… with green. Not greenery. No… with green. How refreshing is this all white retreat by French interior designer Luis Laplace? Made even more so by the green. On the ceiling. Yes please!

Citizens of the World

Dominic Loneragan and Meghan McTavish are CITIZENS OF THE WORLD. People, places, product. They promote, collaborate and support creatives while producing the most drool worthy candles, COTW Artisan Fire, themselves. Kim recently featured a house they shot and since then I’ve been losing myself on their website, especially their COTW HOMES. Here’s a little peak into the places and spaces you will find.
