Gothic madness

Posted on Thu, 31 May 2007 by KiM

This loft deserves a huge OMG. OK, several OMG’s. This loft is located in East London and on this locations website, the description reads simply “3rd floor loft with distinctive decor”. Distinctive? Uh….YEAH. Check out all the religious art (Jo’s fav) used to decorate this over-the-top gothic space.

Sera of London – Part II

Posted on Wed, 30 May 2007 by KiM

A while back, Jo did a post about Sera of London, and I happened upon her website recently and was just blown away by all the OTT, glamorous, exotic spaces Madame Sera has designed. So dreamy, so movie-star, so bordello fabulous. I just had to post some more photos.

Found this on the Dwell site and had to post it. Has all sorts of my favourite things – a cat, lots of white, and cool architecture.

Jeff Andrews, design genius

Posted on Tue, 29 May 2007 by KiM

Jeff Andrews has made it to my list of top 5 designers of all time. His designs are bold and cutting-edge but somehow just enough to suit all tastes. He uses a perfect amount of colour, and a perfect mix of modern and vintage. It’s PERFECTION, plain and simple. I could have started and ended with that one word. It says it all. There is so much to love about Jeff’s designs, that I’ll be doing another post later today of a space he designed that is absolutely spectacular. So make sure to check back later.

Andy Sturgeon garden design

Posted on Sun, 27 May 2007 by KiM

I have SO got the itch to do some landscaping to my miniscule property. I have someone coming in a week or so to finish my fence and build a new deck in the backyard. As a result, I am always looking for ideas for outdoor spaces. I love modern landscapes, and Andy Sturgeon’s website was very inspirational. “Andy Sturgeon Garden Design has emerged as a leading design practice earning a reputation for creating stylish modern gardens that are a fusion of contemporary design and natural materials. Planting often features heavily and ranges from striking architectural schemes through to soft, naturalistic styles. Lighting, sculpture and furniture are frequently integral to the design.”
