Nothing compares to the quality and character found in hand crafted objects and this week we were lucky enough to stumble across Artisans Max Bainbridge and Abigail Booth from Forest + Found. Founded in 2014, they use traditional methods to create sculptural wooden objects and large textile pieces which are inspired by the landscape and endeavour to tell a story. The perfect accessory to an interior.
This week’s favourite is the Brisbane home, a three bedroom cottage originally built in 1900 and adapted by the owner in recent years. This interior is one that we can relate to with its layering of material textures, neutral palette and vintage collection of objects. We love the characterful accessories in this bright and interesting interior.
This week we have selected a few of our favourites from Sotheby’s upcoming auction, Collections & Collectors.
The collection brings together a wide range of objects from mid-century joinery pieces to some breath taking mirrors and much more. There's something for everybody in this auction! 28th April | 10am | London
Vintage House Daylesford is an 1860’s miners’ cottage on the border of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs that is available to rent for that perfect weekend getaway. It has been completely restored and re-designed to highlight the original features of the house. Combining the use of wood, metals and shades of white, black and everything in between to bring new life to the cottage. Finished with antique, vintage and industrial furniture from around the world. This is a real beauty and we love it, wouldn't mind a few nights here ourselves!
Our love for 1st Dibs gets even stronger this month as we have fallen in love with this English Bank of drawers from the mid-18th Century. A unique attribute of this piece is built in partitions inside the draws. Not to mention the original metal pulls. Love at first sight!
Christian Hetzel is a self-taught contemporary artist from Germany, who is fascinated by the dominant laws of texture, and the composition of colour and form which follow it. Most of his work is based on traditional media techniques, such as canvas, paper, timber board, painted with acrylic and mixed media. Hetzel draws inspiration from a range of modern masters from Rothko to Richter and Soulages, which has developed into a unique and powerful style. Here are a few of our favourites.
Hope you find them as inspiring as we do!
In this month’s Blog we are celebrating ‘International Women’s Day’. We are focussing on Inspirational Women Artist’s. One particular Artist we especially like is Rachel Whiteread. Rachel is one of Britain’s leading contemporary sculptors. She was the first women to win the annual Turner Prize in 1993. Many of Whiteread’s works are casts of ordinary domestic objects and in some case’s their negative-space.
We hope you find her as inspirational as we do.
This week we are looking at the latest issue of The World of Interiors, another jam packed issue full of inspiration!
Storey Craft showcases Belgian Designer Lionel Jadot's transformation of a Regency terrace house in Knightsbridge. His use of both salvaged and natural materials within the space create a stunning aesthetic playing on the designers ethos of 're-use, revive and re-imagine.' The en-suite bathroom with panels of glass and bamboo faced glazing bars is truly beautiful.
From London to Italy where local artist Agostino Iacurci's public artworks are fast imprinting themselves on to the fabric of Rome. Each mural distinctively differs to become a backdrop to the neighborhood it resides in creating interest and fun within even the most down-trodden areas.
