Random inspiration

I’m moving apartments in a few months. Our lease is up, and the landlord wants to raise the rent by 20% (as is happening all over Hong Kong at the moment). And, I don’t really want to share my space with cockroaches, rats and termites anymore (I wish I were kidding). Hence, we are looking around. Part of me wished I was moving back to my own house in Melbourne, but we’re not really ready to leave here just yet. So, apartment hunting we go. I’m also thinking its a good excuse to get the pre-loved furniture I bought finally recovered and have my space in a state that is at least partly photographable (is that even a word ?) so I can share some pics with you all. In the meantime, this is what is inspiring me at the moment…

Source unknown – I love this sofa – I can’t get enough of green.

Living room by Shamir Shah – it looks comfortable and chic to me.

A Steven Gambrel living room – nothing else needs to be said…

An interior by Todd Romano – love this colour combination.

Markham Roberts own living area, as featured in Domino

An interior by Madeline Stuart

A crisp classic neutral room by Larry Laslo

Above 3 images of an interior by Joe Nye a great mix of warm toned timber and a neutral colour palette.
Interior by Jean-Louis Deniot – love the mix of styles he creates.

Image from Highland Court fabrics – I love how relaxed this room looks, and how comfortable and chic it is.

Image from Elle Decor Oct ’07 – everyone’s favorite front cover.

Apartment of the owners of Duane Modern/Antiques image from 1st Dibs – a great mix here – but what else would you expect from vintage furniture dealers!

Angela Free interior – again, I love the warm timber and the cool, neutral colours.

Source unknown – but a super cozy looking room. These colours might be too warm for HK, but I’m still a Melbourne girl at heart, and I will always love these warm tones.

The two images from my tear sheets file that won me my free pretty in Maison 21‘s competition. From old Australian Vogue Living magazines.

And last, but far from least, the bedroom from 1st Dibs founder Michael Bruno’s Paris apartment – care of Katiedid. I can’t stop thinking about this room, its just so chic. I love this chest of drawers because its so unique, but I really don’t think I could live with furniture that’s covered in dead elephant.
