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…
Above 3 images of an interior by Joe Nye a great mix of warm toned timber and a neutral colour palette.
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.
Love this post! Lots of beautiful interiors! Love the second photo. I actually just included a different photo of that same room on my blog in a post about the photographer who shot it, Timothy Kolk. I also really love the Todd Romano room and the living room of the Duane Modern/Antiques guys. I could live in either one of those spaces!
Great spread Suzy! I had to laugh when you said you couldn’t get enough of green lately. Me too as I find I’ve been inadvertently posting with photos of green chairs quite often 🙂
fabulous images !! Good luck with your apartment shopping…..I love shopping real estate…….who am I kidding……I love alllll shopping !!!
oh very nice…love all the over-sized pictures/wall art.
That first image just totally speaks to me. Love that big white piece of art over the sofa. That combination is so daring.
SGM, yes, I guess I do!
You love oversize art hanging over a couch. Me too. Sigh.
Hi Joni – I guess those pesky things live anywhere its warm, huh!
Jennifer – me too – I have always liked green, but this shade really appeals to me at the moment.
Thanks Katie, and no problem – thank YOU for posting those images!
Paris Apartment, glad I could help out in the inspiration department!
Diana – good idea – I’m infatuated with that image too!
I’m resting my eyes on that first image. It’s so beautiful. I might just print it out and hang it up for occasional inspiration. Lovely post.
Great collection! I’m going to show your blog to my client so thank you!
I was just enjoying all of your pictures, and realized that my name was at the end of your post! Thanks so much for the link-up! All of your photos are great inspiration. I hope you find an even better apartment. Darn landlords.
What a wealth of inspiration! Re: the first image with the green sofa- I’ve been really into these darker, murkier shades of green lately. So pretty.
Beautiful eye candy to wake up to!!! aw, rats and termites and roaches? honey – we’ve got them all here in Texas too!!!! yeeww!!!
Thanks for the comment, too!
