Hearth and home. Sense of place and purpose and history. Homes to anchor a well lived life. Tradition and quiet modernism. Genius loci, respect for the past, reach for the future but gently, solidly, purposefully and creatively. Inspiration from Austin, Texas based Tim Cuppett Architects.
If colour is contagious then I’m in trouble. These fun rooms are infectious and fabulous. If you are starting to think all white scandi rooms are anaemic and washed out then a colour infusion is just what you might need. Spin the colour wheel and see where it lands. If interior designer Katie Rosenfeld has anything to do with it then it will always be a winner.
Classically elegant, traditional yet with a fresh modern focus. Energetic colours and patterns. No fuddy duddy fuss just a youthful take on a timeless look. It’s been a while since I focused in on a more traditional look and Gideon Mendelson with his sophisticated sensibility is taking my fancy today.
Kathryn Chaplow is an interior designer located in Grand Rapids, Michigan that I discovered a little while ago while surfing the net for people to blog about. Her take on interiors is fairly uncomplicated and understated but that is what makes it work for real people. Sometimes we need to take a break from all these grand designs and appreciate something a little more ‘everyday’. And thanks to Kathryn’s designs I have a new found love for the colour green.
Green with envy that I can’t own this gorgeous Malmö apartment and green with envy that it has escaped into the blogosphere already. Imagine my surprise when it turned up on my daily must read blog The Diversion Project this morning before I had pushed the publish button. Jules we have good taste 🙂 This is so what I would want for my own home and my mind is eased with my dark colour selections. Wood, white and dark. Delicious. Just wish my own place had such amazing floors and ceilings. A truly special apartment via Bolaget.
