Art and antiques in a designer’s home

Posted on Thu, 26 Sep 2019 by KiM

I LOOOOVE THIS HOUSE!!! This art and antique-filled Victorian mansion block apartment in Barnes (U.K.) is the home of hám interiors’ Co-Founder Tom Cox. Tom employed clever spatial planning to create an airy and light home, bursting with personality from his eclectic private art collection. To create the illusion of space without having a fully open-plan layout, we fitted reclaimed Georgian glazed panelling between the kitchen and living room. We also designed and built bespoke storage utilising the height of the ceilings, and repurposed the guest bedroom to become a dressing room. 

An apartment designed around art

This London apartment proves what a dramatic role art can play (and the post coming up will demonstrate this as well). Designed by Caroline Legrand.

The artist’s barn

I have two words that I would use to describe this old barn conversion. “Yes please.” I love the romance of the rustic, the collection of well loved furniture and of course the art. Converted Barn/Artist Studio: Provincetown, Massachusetts by Cafiero Select.

An intoxicating garden

Posted on Wed, 25 Sep 2019 by midcenturyjo

The designers imagined it as an Old Hollywood film. The plants were the character actors. Or was it a party  with lots of intriguing botanical guests? Perhaps a dream. Yes an intoxicating dream.

“This is the New Old Hollywood. We exhale the botanical illusions of our own making. We dream again of the garden: the dream is a garden; the garden is a dream.”
