Vintage French

Posted on Wed, 10 Oct 2012 by KiM

This home packed full of vintage goodies is located in the little French village of Vascoeuil, the location of Madame Bovary films. I am always enchanted and intrigued by homes decorated like this one. I could spend hours inspecting every inch, so that I don’t miss any of the treasures.

Did you love the styling for the Inside Out feature on Steve and Helena Trupp of Empirical Style in the last post? As soon as I found out it was by Julia Green of Greenhouse Interiors I hot footed it over to her website and oohed and aahed. Vintage + colour + collections + layers + crafted and found = a quirky, fun, vibrant and down right happy portfolio. Rooms full of treasure without being “precious’. Just the way I want to live!

Inside Out

Posted on Tue, 2 Oct 2012 by midcenturyjo

Hopping up and down with excitement. Squealing. Making little panting noises. Not a good look for a woman of a certain age but I can’t help it. It’s time for the new issue of Inside Out magazine. Out Wednesday. Even more exciting it’s the 100th issue and is packed full of lovely, lovely room porn. Lee Tran Lam, managing editor promises. (Actually “room porn” were my words not hers.) Once again Inside Out has shared with Desire to Inspire a few sneaky pics from one of the gorgeous homes inside their pages. You’ll recognise it of course. It’s the home of Steve and Helena Trupp of Empirical Style. Helen shared her own snaps of their cool apartment not long ago on the blog but I am lovin’ the shots in the magazine taken by photographer Armelle Habib and styled by Julia Green.

P.S. Don’t forget if you live outside Australia you don’t have to miss out on one of the best interiors magazines around. You can subscribe through Zinio.

Hope you’re all enjoying the weekend. This was the first weekend in about 4 months that I did not have something planned. It has been AWESOME and a welcomed change of pace. I’m going to continue to enjoy my weekend despite the fact that it’s going to be cold and rainy all day and I leave you with some photos from the latest issue of Heart Home mag. Have a good one!

To let ….

Looking for somewhere to rent? London, SE1 not too far from the Tate Modern, the Old Vic and the Young Vic. Walk to the city via the Millennium Bridge.

“This impeccably restored one-bedroom loft apartment with roof terrace is situated in the historic Ragged School, close to Borough Market. Set over two floors, the flat has all of the characteristics of a classic loft, including exposed brickwork, vaulted wooden ceilings and massive warehouse windows. Styled and furnished by the renowned photographer and stylist Zanna, it is in our opinion one of the most atmospheric apartments in central London.”

Amazing building, amazing space, amazing fit out. Industrial, rustic, quirky and fabulous. Furnished or unfurnished. (Furnished please…. love the old shop fittings and the wall of old cupboards gives me goosebumps.) Available immediately. I’d move in in a heart beat but I can’t afford the rent. £2,924 pcm/ £675 pw. If you rent it can I sleep on the couch?
