issue number 40 of covet garden is out and it’s a beauty! a canadian furniture maker and a designer turn an old industrial space in a modern collector’s heaven. the trick, i think, to collecting well is not letting yours things take over — nothing too cluttered, just collected, and displayed as well-curated groupings. this couple combines their collections in a mid-century modern space and makes it all blend perfectly. for the whole tour and their interview, visit covet garden.
LoveHate Australia is a Melbourne based design label created by Geneine Honey. Designing and creating homewares, accessories, clothing and hoisery, LoveHate “is all you need to turn your everyday into a unique expression of yourself.” I love the fun personality and bright color palette of LoveHate’s current collection, but what really caught my eye was the beautiful styling of these photos by Geneine and the LoveHate team. Take a look at their website for more info or shop LoveHate online.
i’m not sure i’m going to decorate for the holidays this year. sometimes, i just like to keep things simple. i’m not going anywhere — i’m just going to stay home in san francisco, rest up for 2014, and take a lot of photographs. that’s my plan. i do like the idea of a simple branch in a large vase, like this one i spied on varpunen. or this super large pine branch, like this one below from fryd + design. maybe some lights and lots of candles. that’s it. i’m going ultra-purist this year.
This bright Brooklyn apartment showcases an eclectic mix of bauhaus, family heirlooms and quirky accessories curated by Margot, a freelance art history grad and architecture buff, and sent to us from Alex of Common Bond Design. On this top floor of a classic NYC brownstone, the northwest and southeast facing windows allow the gorgeous, natural light to pour in and illuminate Margot’s many vignettes and collections. and that fireplace mantel — stunning, and what better place to display your favorite possessions?
the photographers and writers at Freunde von Freunden are simply some of the best. and, they get the very best gigs! take this assignment to cover the the ethicurean in bristol, england. i want this job. the ethicurean is a restaurant hidden away in the somerset countryside, serving up only the seasonal best and foraged ingredients from the idyllic landscape that surrounds it. i really must visit this place — it looks like a place we all must make the journey to, doesn’t it? in the meantime, you can view the entire tour and interview on Freunde von Freunden. simply delicious.
