A laboratory of wunderkammer

Posted on Wed, 19 Aug 2015 by KiM

I featured a couple of projects by London-based interior designer Hubert Zandberg recently….but I have not yet shared his home with you. It is like a museum, a laboratory of wunderkammer. I hope he has a housekeeper because I cannot fathom having to dust all of the things. I could spend hours in his home inspecting each and every artifact. And then I would stuff a few things in my purse because he surely would not notice. 😉

Stuff…and things

Posted on Thu, 28 May 2015 by KiM

Minimalists beware. This British warehouse conversion available through The Modern House (designed by 6a Architects) may induce heart palpitations and shortness of breath. It is FILLED to the rafters with STUFF. And THINGS. And more stuff. And I am afraid to admit this….but I kind of like it. Except for the kitchen. A kitchen with that much clutter would drive me mad. I am however, feeling some plant envy. Details can be found here.

OTT on a Sunday

As soon as I spotted this apartment on Shoot Factory, I KNEW it had to be the work of interior designer Sera Hersham-Loftus. This Madame of boudoir chic has brought seductive, romantic drama yet again in this London space. I thought I would start the week off with a BOOM (or maybe in this case a wham, bam, thank you ma’am). 😉

The Imaginarium

Posted on Wed, 28 Jan 2015 by midcenturyjo

I remember the first time I entered stylist Sibella Court’s bijou shop of wonders The Society inc. in Paddington, Sydney. I was overwhelmed by her wonderful wares. I wanted to hide under a table and only crawl out again at closing time and pretend the Paddington terrace house was all mine to explore. Now my fantasies can come true. Sibella has opened a new warehouse in St Peters and the terrace house is available to rent on airbnb.  “An imaginarium… a quiet oasis offering the curious traveller a treasure trove of curiosities, artisan objects & furniture, a vast reference library…” See. Dreams do come true.

An artist’s home

Posted on Tue, 19 Nov 2013 by KiM

This, dear readers, pretty much sums up my dream home. Ah mah gawd. It belongs to British artist Rory Dobner and is located in London. It is perfectly random, quirky, eclectic, vintage and fun. It’s the type of home I could spend hours in scouring every corner to see what surprises I can find. The only thing I’d change is to make the purple settee and chairs a silver or charcoal grey.
