To let ….

Posted on Fri, 21 Sep 2012 by midcenturyjo

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?

Busy weekend

I spent the day yesterday shopping with my family in Montreal for some fall clothes (perfect timing as it’s been HOT for 3 months and I woke up this morning to a drop by about 20 degrees C), so I didn’t have much time to get something ready for today, and I’ve got a busy day too shooting my new purchases for themourningcloak.com and another personal house tour from the Glebe House Tour which is coming up next weekend. While I wait for my husband to finish watching Formula 1 so he can shave my head (only the bottom half 🙂 ) and we can go get some breakfast, I managed to find some gorgeous photos courtesy of British lifestyle magazine Heart Home.

TGIF!!!

Thank gawd it’s Friday, mostly because it’s a warm and sunny 3 day weekend but also because this has not been a very good week (I’m a mess physically, with allergies, back problems that had me home from work yesterday so I could attend my first physio appointment, and now thanks to all this I’ve got a freaking throbbing headache). I thought I’d keep things simple today with photos from Quarto & Sala, the site I like to call the Brazilian Selby. I love peeking into the homes of normal folks…there’s no over-decorating or over-styling here.

More from Inga Powilleit

I didn’t quite get my fill of the mesmerizing photography of Inga Powilleit the other day, so I thought an encore would be a great treat on a Wednesday. Eye candy at it’s finest.

Yes please Joséphine!

Rustic barn meets exuberance and style. Quirky meets practicality. Concrete and chandeliers, modern art and aged oak beams. A barn conversion in Burgundy by Joséphine Gintzburger is pastoral perfection. It’s rough luxe and bucolic drama and all the modern comforts. A weekend retreat to be shared with family and friends.
