Hello — Lori of automatism here, with a little home inspiration while Victoria is busy moving into her own new home.
Home is a reflection of who you are. The books you read, the music you listen to, the art and photos you love, even the meals you choose to prepare — all of these are aspects of your personality. This is why, when visiting the homes of friends, it’s the details of their everyday life — the family photos, the souvenirs from travels, a quirky collection of vintage objects — that I’m especially drawn to, because it gives me a deeper understanding of what’s important to them, just as I surround myself in my own home with things that are important to me.
The London house of Karine Kong, co-founder of the interior site BODIE and FOU, to me perfectly expresses the idea of a home that’s both individual and modern. The personalities of Karine, her husband Steve and their daughter Mila are all equally represented — Karine’s elegant taste throughout the interior, Steve’s New Zealand roots in the garden he created for the family, to the front door painted in Mila’s favourite colour of pink. Relaxed and friendly, it’s a space that reflects their warm and happy way of living — a feeling of home.
