Making your everyday a Sunday

Posted on Sun, 19 Apr 2020 by KiM

Since it is Sunday and none of us have been able to enjoy a meal at a restaurant in weeks, I thought I would share this quirky Bangkok restaurant called Sundays, where their motto is “Making your everyday a Sunday”. It is filled with colour and art and random vintage bits and bobs, and is overflowing with personality and creativity. I would absolutely love to be hanging out here right now enjoying a meal.

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 18 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

Week after week we are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Some of us have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. Strangely we are all heroes. Those who bravely work and those who responsibly stay in to stop the spread of COVID-19. Our thoughts though should also turn to those who have lost their jobs through no fault of their own. They are the often forgotten victims of this tragedy. One day, on the other side, I hope we all have somewhere we can whinge about when we drag ourselves into work on a weekend. It won’t matter if it’s stylish or butt ugly. What will matter is that life returns to “normal” and if we’re lucky towards something a little better, a little kinder, a little more stable. Oh and I lied. It’s always better to go to work on a Saturday somewhere stylish like these sophisticated offices by Henry Francis Design.


Ballroom house

Today I’m sharing another prime example of how incredible original details can look whilst modernizing through furnishings and art etc. Designer Claire Larritt-Evans turned this 1880s former dance school in Melbourne into a drop-dead gorgeous family home. Elegant yet chic and current, it may be a bit minimal but it is brought to another level with the beautiful stained glass windows, fireplace and tile floor. (Aside from, well, everything here I’m head over heels for the ball/chain detail in the kitchen and the bedding)

An obsession with leopard print

Posted on Fri, 17 Apr 2020 by KiM

I love a home with lots of layers – patterns and textures and colours and plants bringing it all together. In this Locust Valley, NY home designer Brittany Bromley added in leopard print in almost every room. I cannot think of a better way to add cohesion and a little wildness to a home. RAWR!!!

More magic from Meredith Kleinman

“The Encino project was a full scale remodel including windows for east coast transplants so they could have their dream of a little bit of New England country in Los Angeles.”

A little East Coast dreaming on the West Coast by the talented Meredith Kleinman Design. Beautiful light, careful curation and simple, meaningful rooms without being cliched or cartoony. The perfect way to “live” on both  sides of the country.
