An interior stylist’s life may not be glamorous, but it sure looks like a lot of fun! Melanie Molesworth gave life to these rustic spaces, and turned them into exquisite eye candy, destined to grace the pages of your favourite magazines.
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.
I may be short on pet submissions this week (come on folks – send me pets on furniture photos! kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net), but I have something to make up for the lack of a pet post. Some stunning interior eye candy photographed by British duo Tim Brotherton and Katie Lock. Now if you will excuse me, I am going to hop into the photo above, light a fire and flop on the sofa for the remainder of the morning.
An oasis of calm after the ceaseless clamour of the day. Respite. Retreat. Classical meets modern. Neutral sophistication. Elegant and urbane with a dash of controversy. White painted books? In this San Francisco Decorator Showcase library interior designer Geoffrey De Sousa explores the role of books and the room that contains them in a world of tablets and the Cloud.
Even the simple dirt sieve can become a work of art when it is displayed en masse. One is good. More is better 😉 Watermill House by Huniford.
