how were the last few days for you? good? bad? ugly?
I was at Object working all weekend, so today is unofficially tinys day off!
And look at it!
Rain.... darkness... grey!
What happened to the warm sunny weather..? I ask you??
Because of this European winter-type weather we're experiencing, I seem to be spending a lot of time my desk... writing, reading, researching, sorting, and blogging.
Which leads me into today's article and today's introduction to a new chapter for the tiny trappings blog... and it's called... the tiny archives!
I was going to call it the dusty 45s - which in record speak is the name given to old 45 inch vinyl records that lie hidden underneath the bed, never to be seen or played again! Which is true these days of much of our music that lies in boxes and drawers, never to be placed on a cassette, turntable or CD player again!
Anyway...back to my article.
On a quiet Wednesday a few weeks back I decided to go through all my old lifestyle magazines...trawling for ideas, great images, colours... when I stumbled on this article from UK Elle Decoration May 2009. And I thought to share it with you, from my archives!
And it truly is one of my favourite featured apartments of all time!
A place that I would love to own one day...
British interior stylist Marin Bourne and his fashion stylist partner, Leilin Lopez have created this amazing space in an ex-industrial loft in Dumbo Brooklyn.... and boy, have they worked hard to make this space feel warm, sunny, colourful and eclectic.
Every inch of the loft has been lightened + brightened using found objects, vintage pieces, and masses of colour through fabric, furniture and artwork.
Oh its a nice space and so so livable rather than the stark and austere spaces you can find in interior magazines. You can tell that its a loved space... and that's why it works!
Can you see why I had to show you...living, breathing colour...in all its glory!Ill be showing you more articles over the next wee while...
So I hope you enjoy the stroll through my dusty 45s with me!
