Henri Martin – the dreamiest of Paris apartments with to die for architectural details (you have to pay close attention as it’s all painted out in white, unfortunately but I won’t judge). Fleur Delesalle took a modernist, Art Deco approach when designing the space. It is Paris chic at its finest. Stunning.

My new one-of-a-kind vintage rug from Revival

Posted on Sun, 20 Feb 2022 by KiM

I have always loved rugs around my home, to add a graphic element and another dose of colour to liven up my floors. Also, cats love ’em 🙂 This winter I became particularly obsessed with hunting down vintage rugs and using them anywhere and everywhere to add coziness to my house since I’m spending 99% of my time at home working. When the folks at Revival Rugs reached out and offered to gift me one of their insanely gorgeous, vintage one-of-a-kind rugs, I nearly fell out of my chair and was so stoked to agree to a partnership. It was particularly easy when I learned their goal is to offer affordable vintage rugs directly from talented artisans and partners across Turkey. Their rugs are premium quality, handmade and the selection is epic. I spent HOURS scouring their vintage collection trying to decide on a rug for my living room. It was an agonizing process let me tell you.

After much deliberation between bold and graphic vs classic and timeless I ended up letting the folks at Revival choose for me and they went with Jelisava, a 6.6′ x 10.7′ vintage wool kilim rug, flatwoven in Konya, Turkey. Also agonizing was my worry it would not match with my mustard-ish yellow sofa but AMEN it works! Their photos were pretty dead-on in showing the colours as they appear IRL so luckily the peach tones work with the yellow. And it arrived in about a week or so which was AMAZING since it came from Turkey. Phoebe was obsessed the moment I took the rug out of the box and with each section unfolded she kept climbing right back on. Luckily the novelty soon wore off.

I could not love my new rug more. It is so meticulously made and the details are exquisite. Revival is now at the top of my list for go-to rug sources, and if you’re in the market for a new rug I highly suggest heading over to their shop and having a looksie. I because I have no doubt you will find your perfect rug, use code 10OFF-KIMDTI to receive 10% off your purchase (valid until March 17) or click through this link and the discount will be applied at checkout.

A Minnesota Lake House

Posted on Fri, 28 Jan 2022 by KiM

I feel that this title is totally misleading, but in a good way. This is nothing like I would have imagined a lake house in Minnesota to look like. This home is like a museum for modern art and mid century chairs. Lake house living at its absolute finest, designed by Ryan Lawson. Photos: Stephen Kent Johnson.

A renovated farm in Buckinghamshire

Posted on Mon, 24 Jan 2022 by KiM

I could totally get behind barn living if it looked like this. Hubert Zandberg tackled the design of this contemporary barn renovation in Buckinghamshire and the bucolic setting and details of the architecture really add character and make this home so welcoming and relaxed.

Rich earth

“We were commissioned to re-imagine the informal living room, entrance hall and the master bedroom. Taking cues from the colour palette defined by the client we assembled a series of statement pieces that created unexpected moments, like the oversized Sammode Studio lamp and Dedar wallpapered ceiling. The unique mix of vintage, pre-owned and new pieces also includes a restored Italian book case, a Florence Knoll credenza and the Italian Gronda Mirror/Coat Racks. Despite working with an earthy palette, we succeeded in creating a richly textured series of spaces that are sophisticated yet accessible.”

Earthy and rich, unexpected and inspiring. Harking to the past and definitely ahead of the curve.  An atmospheric reworking of old spaces. What else would you expect from Melbourne’s style maven Simone Haag?
