Not quite an expected beginning, but here’s a quick post, or rather, just a bunch of links for those who are looking to venture into the interior design realm. If you stick to the end, it’s not a doubt you’ll pick up a handful of basic knowledge to get you up and going. Here are the links to BBC Design Rules with Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen.

Hope you gained something from this very quick visit. Cheers to you if you go against the “practical” ways and pursue a career into art and design.. You won’t regret it! For the most part of your life, at least. I kid 😉

Delightful Habytation: Harriet Anstruther

Rarely do I see an interior space receiving immediate response of: “My dream home!” But with the perfect turn of events, I came across Harriet Anstruther’s self-designed, eye-candy abode and marveled at how she almost perfectly got my taste. Browsing through her website, I didn’t  realize I screen-capped her entire house!

I would give up any chair I own to have an original Panton Chair.

I’d give all chair I ever owned to have a Panton Chair with this home office.

I could only hope for this. Colors are largely too masculine for my taste, but somehow the floral arrangement, feminine form of the armchair, the shabby pedestal, and walls brimmed with images gave off enough femininity to still be a dream of mine.

“Grand” and “elegance” in their most simplistic, down-to-earth interpretation.

Odd as it is, this corridor leading to the bathroom is my icing on this cake. It’s becoming rare to witness such design priority given to a space perceived “unworthy” of design. Lined french doors could apparently do so much, and those wood parquet are complementing beyond description.
