Dark and rough

Posted on Mon, 13 Apr 2020 by KiM

I have been a huge fan of designers Pierre Emmanuel Martin and Stéphane Garotin of Maison Hand for many years. Everything they touch is magic. Whether light or dark or a mix of both, their projects are always fabulous. Their latest 75 m2 apartment in Lyon, France that they renovated is rough around the edges with lots of black and dark earthy tones and might be my favourite of all. I am intrigued by the wacky layout of the kitchen.

Picture the scene: It's 8am. The hubs has taken the dog for a walk and you have about half an hour until they're back. You've been living in a building site for four weeks and were semi homeless for three months before that. You are seriously in need of some faffing time. You also just happen to have a box of new stock to hand. So you faff. And you faff. And you faff. You get the bed looking just right. You get your phone out to take the perfect shot. And then a little (slightly muddy) dog comes rushing into the room, notices what you're doing and jumps onto the bed, centre stage. Then he looks at you as if to say, "well go on then, I haven't got all day".

Yes, Quito, you HAVE TO GET UP. So it's officially back to work today! Happy New Year! The most liked picture on my feed for 2019 was of my bedroom so I figured I'd share this shot today which I snapped over the weekend (today its dark AF in the house sadly). To be honest, I'm not that fussed about Mondays like I used to when I was working in an office, repeating, "So didja have a nice break? What did you get up to?" about 700 times 😂 My current coworkers don't talk quite as much and it's kind of nice to just get back to a regular routine again! I'm sharing the highlights of the year over on the blog today as well my pretty new branding 😄🙌🏽 – new logo, new fonts, new colours – I hope you like it! Hit the link in my profile to check it all out!👆🏽 So…. didja have a nice break??😉⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ https://www.swoonworthy.co.uk/2020/01/2019-review.html/⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #bedroominspo #swoonworthy #bedroomdesign #bedroomgoals #bohoglam #glamourous #interiordesign #interiordesignideas #sodomino #interiorboom #styleithappy #livefabulousandfearless #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #howyouhome #suyhome #ihavethisthingwithpink #abmlifeiscolorful #eclecticdecor #sheltiesofinstagram #dtipetsonfurniture #sheltie

Shoutout to healthcare workers

Posted on Sun, 12 Apr 2020 by KiM

A big shoutout to all the healthcare workers out there who continue to show up to work and risk their lives during this pandemic. I read an article the other day about a nurse who would get in her car and cry from fear each day before heading to work. I cannot imagine. I worry about my cousin Cristina who is a newly graduated paramedic in Toronto. These people can’t hide in their homes like the rest of us. Donna is a healthcare provider and sent us a link to the obstetrics and gynecology office in Nashville, TN where she works.  Designed by Pencil & Paper Co., “it gives us a serene environment for some of life’s stressful moments“. Thank you Donna. XOXO (And I must wish my dear blog partner Jo a happy birthday!!! a virtual XOXO to you too!)

Working on a Saturday

Posted on Sat, 11 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

As I wrote last week and sadly will be writing for many weeks to come a lot of us are compelled to stay home in these dangerous times. Others have no choice but to go out into the big, bad world to help others or keep the wheels turning. I can’t use my usual spiel about being dragged into work on a weekend. It doesn’t feel right. So many of us have lost our jobs. I’ll just share this stylish workplace instead. Office 1 by Lawless & Meyerson.

A wild garden in the sky

Posted on Fri, 10 Apr 2020 by midcenturyjo

Nine floors up in the city skyline is a comapny garden providing break out and informal meeting areas for its staff. Yada, yada, yah, yah, so what? A couple of planter boxes and a picnic table would be the most you would expect but that’s not what this garden is at all. Verdant greenery spilling everywhere, gentlemovement, a sense of exploration, an oasis in the city with the most exceptional views (Opera House sails anyone?). Clever ideas to steal for urban courtyard or balcony gardens. Platinum House by Sydney-based landscape designers Secret Gardens.
