Or should that be the skeleton on the ceiling? It may be the deal breaker if you want to come on my virtual getaway to this loft style apartment in Tribeca, New York which ticks all the boxes. Exposed brick walls, light streaming in the the tall windows, a mini jungle, curios on industrial style shelves, great kitchen… and the skeleton above the dining table. I’ve been staring at it for ages trying to work out what the model is actually of. Ichthyosaur? Prehistoric razor toothed dolphin? A cousin of the Loch Ness Monster? It would certainly make for an interesting dinner party conversation. Franklin Place is available through onefinestay.
Over the years Kim and I have been fascinated by the homes of Sera Hersham-Loftus or should I say the reinvention of her homes. The queen of the boudoir look with its seductive, glamorous and over-the-top trappings is also the queen of the quick change, of reinvigorating her glorious spaces. Kim last featured her house a year ago but when I recently visited the Sera of London website, voila, her house had evolved into a glamazon jungle with the addition of even more houseplants than her usual parlour palms. It’s spring, only it’s inside. I love the look but can you imagine watering day?!
What a stunning loft. This 1200 sq ft space in London is a dream with massive windows along one entire side, concrete ceilings, white painted floorboards, and an eclectic touch with stained glass doors and windows and patterned tile. I would maybe redo the kitchen and add some actual cabinetry to make it more functional. Other than that the decor is really fun and random with an fairly simple colour pallet. LOVE this.

This beach house designed by Amanda Masters is EVERYTHING. Dear gawd I love this. The all white backdrop makes all of the fun and rustic vintage pieces the focus, and bold textiles with lots of pattern pop. It is bohemian chic at its finest.
A boho beauty. That’s how I’d describe this TriBeCa, New York loft by Deborah French Designs. A celebration of colour and pattern, layered with texture, patina and lovingly collected curios. Life was meant to be lived to the full and how could you not in such a wonderfully exuberant home.
