My new side table

Posted on Sun, 2 Dec 2012 by KiM

Over a year ago I blogged a really cool idea I saw on The Selby – a vintage safe as a side table.

Low and behold, I recently came across one on Kijiji and my husband nearly lost his marbles. Turns out he is a huge fan of vintage safes too! Yesterday we drove for what seemed like hours to some little town out in the middle of nowhere and arrived at the home of a really nice man who sold us a very similar safe for $250 (I’m thinking this was a steal based on what little I’ve seen via some quick googling). It took 3 men to heave the 300 lb (or so) safe into our vehicule and somehow my husband and I managed to carry it into the house last night. Now it takes pride of place in the corner of my living room. The previous owner does not remember the combination (he’s had it for over 40 years – when he was younger while drinking with his buddies they’d see who could lift it) so we’ll have to figure out how to open it or find someone who can. In the meantime, I think it makes a sweet side table. 🙂

I came across Australian photographer Natalie Jeffcott‘s work on MilK magazine’s website and after perusing her portfolio of interiors I am a new fan. I love how she has captured such fun and spaces so simply yet perfectly. P.S. In September Natalie and 2 other photographers opened Nomofoto – a studio and sometime gallery space in North Melbourne, and they have an online shop with some reeeeeeally cool prints.

Hello Richard Clatworthy. Love your photography portfolio. Natural and not at all fussy, you discover the beauty in the ordinary. No tricks. Just great shots of interesting spaces. It’s so refreshing.

Speechless. No words. These photos. Amazing. Wait. Let me try. The soft light, the rich colours, the wonderful, casual vibe. It’s an interpretation, an understanding, an appreciation of beauty. British photographer Joanna Henderson. Considered and enchanted, captured through a lens.

Interior stylist Pippa Jameson breathes life into concepts and ideas. She takes what is nebulous and embryonic, researches and creates, hires and coordinates, schemes and styles and just when her sets or rooms are almost perfect I’m sure she sprinkles fairy dust for good measure. Just kidding about the fairy dust. It’s all just amazing talent and hard work. Clean, fresh and relaxed. A little vintage, a lot of colour anchored with white.
