vintage finds for a modern world: glen proebstel.
by victoria comment


once again, the lovely monique germon of story introduces me to something special. she sent along this link to one of Australia’s best interior stylists, Glen proebstel. i love the way he pulls these images together – vintage inspired, but with a fresh, modern feel. for more of glen proebstel’s beautiful work visit his website and drop in on his blog.

  1. Love! So many bits of eye candy today plus, congrats on your other piece on Meg’s place that’s posted on Refinery 29. Yay you!

  2. These rooms are absolutely fantastic. I want to find a way to squeeze them all into my house! I’d love your advice. I am redoing my floors next month (with laminate) and am torn between dark and light wood. Do you have any suggestions? I LOVE dark but am not sure it’ll work with the oak countertops we are putting in the kitchen!


    • kacie – the one thing i know about dark floors is that they really show the dirt, and need vacuuming/sweeping constantly. but my mom just put them in and they are beautiful. she painted all her cabinets white and it’s a stunning contrast.

      • Ugh I’m so torn. I just spent the weekend at a friends house and they said the same thing, they have 2 dogs and 2 kids. I have one cat and one baby but can barely find the time to vacuum. Don’t want to spend my life sweeping but I love their dark elegance! I suppose the more practical light wood will probably win out… Thank you for your input.


  3. I’m with Victoria on this one! Not sure if it’s distressed or a tapestry!
    I did take some faux-finish classes – would love to try that – perhaps on a small wall !

    Gorgeous – love the vintage look – enjoy little splashes of it here and there.
    I have some old shoehorns, my baby shoes (not brass), and old violin a great uncle carved and a platter my parents won for ‘best waltxz’ back in the 50’s :)

    Love to look at them and enjoy having them in my home!
    Lovely collection

  4. I exchanged emails with Glen, who staged this shoot. The purple and orange wall in the first photo is a rug hung on the wall.
