Blindfold

Posted on Tue, 20 Aug 2019 by midcenturyjo

Is my blindfold title about the art on the wall or the run of cabinets across the window in the kitchen? Perhaps both. Unley Kitchen by Williams Burton Leopardi.

The cabin + the snug

Posted on Thu, 15 Aug 2019 by KiM

I dream of owning a cabin in the woods, a refuge from city life. If that dream ever becomes reality, I want it to look exactly like the Anderson Island, Washington cabin and snug of interior designer Heidi Caillier. Not many people would go dark like this but kudos to Heidi for taking a risk and completely nailing it. (Photos: Haris Kenjar)

Dark drama in an apartment in France

Posted on Wed, 7 Aug 2019 by KiM

I wanted to share another apartment by Lyon-based designer Claude Cartier and this one is at the opposite end of the spectrum from the last post. This one has a definite masculine vibe with hard edges, dark colours and no pink in sight! Black, green and yellow are the colour pallette and are really beautiful and dramatic together. And this one feels “Parisian”.

Feminine glam in an apartment in France

Posted on Wed, 7 Aug 2019 by KiM

If you’re a fan of glamourous and dramatic interiors with a feminine touch I think you’re going to love this renovated apartment by Lyon, France designer Claude Cartier. Pink, grey, black, white and an unexpected touch of blue make for a beautiful colour palette. If I didn’t love Cole & Son’s Fornasetti Nuvolette wallpaper before I’m now DYING to use it on a ceiling. Also, the photo above is a great example of hot to use paint in a simple yet unique way. STUNNING!!!

I love to see people take risks in the world of interior design, even if it isn’t to my taste nor something I can imagine living in. If it’s ballsy I give it 2 thumbs up. Like this all black apartment in St. Petersburg I found on The Village. Black from floor to ceiling, sparkly drippy chandeliers, swag burgundy curtains and bedding. I hate to say it but had I not known what website this was from my first guess would have been it was located in Russia. Do you think you could live here?
