The drama of dark and light

Posted on Sun, 18 Oct 2015 by KiM

I had a few free minutes before heading out to the Ottawa Antique & Vintage Market so I decided to spend this precious break perusing one of my favourite blogs, The Design Files. A couple of homes featured over the past couple of months really blew me away for their dramatic impact and I had to share some of the photos with you. First there was the home of Melbourne stylist, decorator and retailer Lynda Gardener – a converted warehouse whose all white space is the perfect backdrop for rustic, vintage treasures. Then there was the SOHO loft of Australian photographer Martyn Thompson, that is dramatic in its dark palette and random in its decor. Here, hand-painted murals by Martyn’s artist partner Dove Drury Hornbuckle take centre stage. Both are absolutely breathtaking.

The decision to put stuffed animal heads on walls is beyond me. Why would anyone want to ''decorate' his/her home with the head of another creature and one that likely died in immense fear? I very much hope this practice ends soon.

Great ambience. I'd hate to try and pull out one of those magazines from the stack in pic #3 though…

Eff your continual choice to feature dead animals on walls.
