Atelier Vime

Posted on Mon, 12 Oct 2020 by KiM

I have been following Atelier Vime for some time now on Instagram, and it finally dawned on me that I should feature this truly magical French shop/design studio here on the blog. They are a vintage basketry shop and producer of wicker, rattan and rope furniture, located in Vallabrègues in an 18th century h?tel particulier. You would never know their photos were actually “product” shots as the architectural details and styling of the spaces is consistently exemplary.

A family’s stylish West Village townhouse

Posted on Mon, 12 Oct 2020 by KiM

I fell in love with this home when I first saw it featured in a recent edition of Architectural Digest and though I think it made the rounds on the web over the summer I still wanted to share for those who might have missed it. The architecture is the wow factor, and the cozy and unique furnishings, a lot of which I think are vintage, add high class and sophistication yet aren’t too precious that the whole family (with 2 kids) can’t enjoy. This perfection was designed by Alisa Bloom.

Yndō Hotel

One day when things go back to normal and the pandemic of 2020 will only be a memory, we will be able to travel again with no restrictions and visit magical places like Bordeaux, France and perhaps stay at the Yndō Hotel. Late 19th century architecture converges with modern furnishings to bring you a spectacular luxury experience.

I love the drama and moodiness of a home that is steeped in history like this beautiful, almost gothic style former painting studio in Cape Cod. Keeping the old wooden beams in their natural state was a smart move here. The dark wood enhances the beautiful shapes and makes this home so cozy and inviting. I could not love this more. Designed by David Cafiero, photos by Stephen Kent Johnson. (Jo featured a barn that I believe is on the property here).

Colour carousel

Copenhagen interior designer Nadia Olive Schnack is not one to shy away from colour. Or pattern. This project of hers, called Colour Carousel is indeed that. Fun and whimsical and not for the neutral minimalist. I really admire her brave approach to interiors. (Photos by Asger Mortense, styling by Nathalie Schwer)
