I’m looking forward to the first Sunday of February so I can wake up early to scour my local flea market for a vintage bar cart. I figured it’s about time I pull my pretty collection of glassware and bottles out of their cabinets. After all, when the clock strikes 5, having the makings of a cocktail within reach is absolutely necessary – wouldn’t you agree?
Made from glazed earthenware and coupled with Parisian silk lamp shades, these animal-inspired table lamps by Atelier Abigail Ahern are playful, witty, and classy kitsch! I clearly need the bulldog lamp . . .
Do you remember that unforgettable scene in Auntie Mame with the fabulously far-fetched, post modern hydraulic benches designed by the fictional Danish designer Yul Ulu? Well, interior designer Kendall Wilkinson‘s hovering cantilevered benches, created for LUXE Magazine’s Maison de Luxe Show House, would have made Mame proud. The benches and the infinity mirror with bright yellow flowers are the show stopping features of this custom designed space. Honestly, wow.
One of my many new years resolutions is to take on the project of revamping my bedroom. These dreamy images have inspired me to search for a chandelier, showcase the exposed beams on my ceiling, play with color, work on my vintage suitcase collection, and finally bite the bullet and purchase a Moroccan wedding blanket!
Craftsman Nick Kenny converted a run-down Victorian corrugated-iron chapel in Faversham, on the Kent coast of England, into a home. Using only recycled and salvaged materials, Nick had to be extremely resourceful – especially in the bathroom, where it was eventually fitted with a reclaimed sink and a shower made from old boiler room parts. One of my favorite things about a project like this is that it can never be re-created as it’s completely unique to its space.
I now need leather animals in my house after seeing the home of antique store owner Hitoshi Uchida. All the interesting vintage and found treasures bring so much life and warmth to his light filled home!
