An update on this Victorian home in London

Posted on Tue, 14 Jul 2020 by KiM

Back in 2015 I featured the home of the very talented interiors photographer Debi Treloar, that was available for photo shoots via jj Locations. While perusing their site the other day I noticed it is still listed, but seems to have had a bit of a makeover since my last post. The flooring in the kitchen/living room area is now polished concrete which I LOVE, and the kitchen has a darker, moodier colour palette which I prefer to the previous version. Debi has such a knack for working with vintage finds and maintaining original details. Such a gorgeous home.

Old meets new in a designer’s home

Posted on Tue, 14 Jul 2020 by KiM

Old meets new in this bright, eclectic 100 year old home of designer Jonathan Steinitz and his husband located in Columbus, Ohio. This is what I love to see – people appreciating the history of a home and working hard to restore original features. Here they re-exposed some beautiful worn brick and original hardwood flooring. The white walls really accentuate these elements and some modern mixed with vintage furnishings really add personality.

Bringing the country to the city

Posted on Mon, 6 Jul 2020 by KiM

I would have never in a million years guessed this was a townhouse in Notting Hill, London. But it makes total sense once learning this home was designed by the gurus of the reclaimed, the salvaged, the well-worn. Retrouvius, you’ve created magic converting this city home into a piece of history. Lime-washed walls, a marble sink from Turkey, silk fabric from Fez, pine planks from a cheese factory, a 15th century fireplace, onyx from a bankrupt chimney shop and many other treasures make this home truly unique.

Sunday at a restaurant – Pallet

Posted on Sun, 5 Jul 2020 by KiM

I sometimes feel the industrial interior trend has been completely overdone. But every once in a while a project catches my eye and I realize I still appreciate the moodiness and reusability of this style. Such as Pallet restaurant in Salt Lake City designed a few years ago by the consistently awesome cityhomeCOLLECTIVE. I’d LOVE to enjoy an evening here (post-pandemic of course).
