Art and antiques in a designer’s home

Posted on Thu, 26 Sep 2019 by KiM

I LOOOOVE THIS HOUSE!!! This art and antique-filled Victorian mansion block apartment in Barnes (U.K.) is the home of hám interiors’ Co-Founder Tom Cox. Tom employed clever spatial planning to create an airy and light home, bursting with personality from his eclectic private art collection. To create the illusion of space without having a fully open-plan layout, we fitted reclaimed Georgian glazed panelling between the kitchen and living room. We also designed and built bespoke storage utilising the height of the ceilings, and repurposed the guest bedroom to become a dressing room. 

A Gardener’s Bothy in Gunton Park

Far from the basic shelters built for farm labourers on large estates this bothy was the charming home of interior designer John Tanner. Maximalist and traditional in style the tiny cottage shows that small space living does not need to be pared back and sterile. Beautiful, individual and dramatic.

A spicy pied à terre

Posted on Tue, 27 Aug 2019 by KiM

There are a few designers out there that never cease to amaze me with every single project they get their hands on. London designer Beata Heuman is at the top of the list. Her quirky, eclectic, completely unpredictable style that marries some of the most random colours and patterns together means you will have never seen this anywhere else and you will never see it duplicated. Though I want to pluck every space from her portfolio and stick it in my home. This Paddington pied à terre is a prime example.

A small modern apartment in Moscow

Posted on Tue, 13 Aug 2019 by KiM

This 40 m² apartment in Moscow is a flawless example of how to maximize space when there isn’t much to work with. Cartelle Design used a grey base and added bits of colour with a bold AF yellow bed and platform, a red mirror in the hallway and pretty pink tile in the bathroom. High ceilings and large windows across the apartment help to make it feel larger and loft-like. Love this.

“Chinampa” is the name given to the floating gardens used for cultivation by the Aztecs. It’s also the name of a one-bedroom 58ft widebeam canal boat on London’s Regent Canal. That’s right I’m real estate stalking a London canal boat and why not? It’s a wonderful mix of vintage and bespoke, romantic and stylish. I might not dream of running away to the high seas but I could very easily settle into this small and beautifully formed home afloat. Link here while it lasts.
