A few months back I shared an ingenious bike storage idea in a London mews house. The property designed by Studio Mackereth is now for sale through The Modern House (here) and we get to see the rest of this stylish and clever home. Slide-away hide-away kitchen, hidden television and of course those stairs.
Since it is Sunday and none of us have been able to enjoy a meal at a restaurant in weeks, I thought I would share this quirky Bangkok restaurant called Sundays, where their motto is “Making your everyday a Sunday”. It is filled with colour and art and random vintage bits and bobs, and is overflowing with personality and creativity. I would absolutely love to be hanging out here right now enjoying a meal.

As if my first post today didn’t have you scheming and dreaming of a way to move into a wonderful old farmhouse on Shelter Island then this post will tempt you even further. The renovation of this former fisherman’s cottage is also by SchappacherWhite Architects DPC. In fact it was the architects’ own home until they sold it (lucky new owners). The 1904 house underwent a sympathetic transformation creating a year round home just right for family and friends. The interiors feature natural materials and a neutral colour palette of whites and sands contrasted with black provides a perfect backdrop for a mix of modern, antique and found pieces.

Connecticut and NYC based interior designer Alison Kist believes that people don’t just live in their home, they form a relationship with it. Her style is eclectic, a casually elegant mix of old and new along with the quirky, the whimsical and pieces that tell a story. What she creates is a home that tells the owner’s story, the best sort of home.
