Mural love

Posted on Fri, 23 Apr 2010 by KiM

We received an email a couple days ago that without a doubt had to be shared with you all: “I’m Lady, an advertising creative from Manila and an avid reader and fan of your blog. You’ve featured our cat Kitty Bang Bang once on Monday’s Pets on Furniture. For the past year, my boyfriend and I have been constantly inspired by your featured interiors to improve our new home. Having an artist father, I’ve therefore asked him to paint a mural on our dining room wall, to break the sparseness of the space.” Oh, to have an artist for a father! This mural is fantastic!!! Thank you so much for sharing Lady!

I was scoping out the portfolio of architecture and interior design firm West Chin the other day to see if there were more photos I could showcase here that Jo hadn’t already done in her post back in June. I came across a swanky pad that I thought was worthy of it’s own post. This flat is modern but not too harsh, with funky bits here and there (including a couple sets of boobs and a pair of diaper chairs), and even some cute spaces for the kids (the parents must lock them in their rooms for fear of dirty hands on the furniture). FAB!

Scott Waterman

Posted on Thu, 24 Sep 2009 by KiM

Scott Waterman is a favourite artist of mine whom I blogged about a little over a year ago. He’s also a favourite Flickr contact as I love keeping up to date with his latest works. Well, he emailed the other day with a link to a post about some of Asian-inspired art on the blog Chinoiserie Chic. Since I am not only a huge fan of Scott’s, but a huge fan of Chinoiserie, I thought I’d share a glimpse into this facet of his work. (Check out Beth’s post for more photos and details).

Double take

Last year I posted about New York design firm 2Michaels, founded by twins Joan and Jayne. Joan emailed the other day to let us know that both her and her sister’s apartments were featured in a recent issue of Interior Design. Joan lives in Jayne’s former 1,200 sq ft apartment, “the cheapest two-bed, two-bath on the Upper West Side” while Jayne scored an affordable 1,100 sq ft Midtown apartment with East River views that had been untouched by the former owner for 40 years. Jayne’s apartment required alot of work while Joan’s required alot of furniture (she moved in with only 3 pieces). The results of both apartments is a mid-century vintage vibe and lots of iconic furniture and accessories, and so much stunning artwork. (Thanks Joan and Jayne for sharing your homes with us!)

This first group of photos is Jayne’s apartment.

These next photos are of Joan’s apartment.
