How We Live

Posted on Fri, 11 Sep 2015 by KiM

Over the past couple of years the lovely and talented photographer Marcia Prentice has been traveling the globe and ended up visiting 24 countries! I’m so jealous. But it wasn’t all for fun – she photographed the homes of designers and artists and has put together a compilation in a book titled How We Live, published by teNeues and will be available next month. The book is really unique and much more than a home book. There are 16 different countries and 18 homes represented in the book. The designers (their homes) in the book are a mix of interior, furniture, fashion designers + architects + artists. Each “chapter” shows photos of the city and the home so readers can see how the city affects the interior of the home and how they live. There is a relationship between the environment and the interior. The homes I feature are not just the usual design cities like London or Milan, but also less expected cities such as Mumbai, Beirut and Guadalajara. I love the juxtaposition between design found in Copenhagen and Mexico City, for example. Judging by these photos, this book is going to be a must-have and I am so excited for Marcia. This was a long journey and it is amazing to see the final product come to life. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

Yay! My favorite places and spaces mix and marry periods, styles, found objects and oddities, precious and non. Mix it up baby! Make your space mean something to you.

Beautiful spaces. Unfortunately not the way I live.

This de rigueur clustering of Tom Dixon pendant lamps has now climbed to insane heights. Is there a designer out there with courage to hang just one? How about none?
