Another BKH interior. This sofa is very similar to mine…gotta love brown velvet. So maybe I go for gold in the living room? Scary.
In search of inspiration I’ve been dipping into BKH’s website. They are an Australian based architecture and interiors firm. I really like the soft gray palette in the Dorchester apartment. For more of their work check out Burley Katon Halliday (written by my good friend Heidi Dokulil).
I visited French 50s 60s on Abbot Kinney yesterday. Owner Michele Sommerlath has a great eye. I was looking for a desk and didn’t find anything. But came across these chairs by Gio Ponti on the website. I love that pale maple with the black velvet.
And then these Belgian linen curtains from Restoration Hardware. Sorry Emma…they aren’t very colourful!
OK. Now this is the rug I am leaning towards for the living room. Blue. Lovely silky feel. Am I mad doing a pale colour with two kids (and soon probably a dog)?
An amazing chandelier Bernabei Freeman did for Establishment Hotel in Sydney.

Sal is looking for a light for her dining room – as am I. We both want pendants. I love these by Bernabei Freeman. BF is Australian two women I’ve known for a long time. They do beautiful work – including a lush series of rugs for Designer Rugs.
We just did a clock story in Belle. Of course we had the poor stylist running around Sydney looking for pieces during sale time – so pickings were a little thin on the ground. This is one that slipped through the cracks – this plywood clock by Mori Toyoshi (only $70 at MoMA Store). Tortoise on Abbot Kinney also has them.
