Bourgie lamp

Posted on Wed, 6 Jun 2007 by KiM

The Bourgie lamp, designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartell, is one of my favourite lamps. I love the juxtaposition of the baroque shape with the modern edge of the polycarbonate plastic. So for those who share my love of this lamp, enjoy some Bourgie porn.

Photos from Norway

In my searches for photos of beautiful rooms, I came across a website called Ifi from Norway. It doesn’t really matter that I understood maybe 3 words on the site, all that matters is that they had some blog-worthy photos of interiors.

Diamond Baratta Design

Posted on Tue, 5 Jun 2007 by KiM

William Diamond and Anthony Baratta began their partnership 25 years ago. Their firm is hugely successful. They have over 25 magazine covers to their name, including House Beautiful, Architectural Digest, Elle Decor, House & Garden, Southern Accents, The World of Interiors, Traditional Home, and Veranda. “Best known for their great diversity of styles in a grand scale, Diamond Baratta’s design projects include residential projects in French, English, and American styles — and a newly inventive Modern style. All include the Diamond Baratta dynamic of enlarged scale and genius color interpretation”. I love their style – it reminds me of a slightly subdued/less whimsical Jonathan Adler.

Sills Huniford

Sills Huniford Associates is based in New York, and strives to create modern interiors using furniture from many eras. I am adoringly drawn to the oversized artwork used throughout their designs, particularly the simple black circle on white (I am trying to figure out where I can replicate this in my home), and the framed chalkboard (unless it’s an art piece, then imagine it as a chalkboard – the versatility of it).
