Alketas Pazis rescues and collects objects, lighting, and furniture from the 1900's to 1950's.  He reclaims industrial furnishings and wares and rents them to commercial and movie studios in Greece.  While Pazis' showroom which is called Temporary Showroom is outfitted with the most obscure mid century pieces, his residence which is attached to his business is equally as charming, eclectic and cleverly collected.  This is Avant-Garde at its best!

 

 

Happy Friday!

I posted the amazing home of stylist Lotta Agaton once before, but here are some new photos by Pia Ulin for Residence mag.  I still like it as much as the first time I saw it.  Simple, clean and graphic.

I counted at least 20 projects that I started working on and have not finished in the last two weeks… OK is it something I ate?

But I did manage to finish one little project for the laundry/mud room area

 

It's a laundry ladder

Now I won't even begin to take credit for this great idea because I have seen this done on some other blogs and on Pinterest and I loved the idea

Most of the others who used this ladder idea suspended it from either chain or some sort of rope/pulley system which all looked good and worked out well. But on my weekly trip to the hardware store 

I spotted these:

if you're interested you can read more about that projecthere

 

I have a big open area which we recently renovated plumbing, electrical, windows, flooring doors etc etc... it started out small and grew into a monsterbut I digress....lets talk about the ladder!

 Initially, I thought I would leave it the natural wood but then I got it up and it looked a little to rustic and unfinished.... so it got a nice couple of coats of bright white paint.  The ceiling in this room is the original ceiling from a breezeway between the garage and the back door the walls on either side of the room are the original exterior walls of the house so as you can imagine that was a huge part of the renovation too,  scraping, sanding, removing paint and glue and getting all of the board and batten siding into shape again because this is now an enclosed interior room

 

 

once the ladder was up it needed some nice S hooks for baskets and hanging things

I purchased these from a blacksmith and they are really nice and beautifully made the turn buckle system is really solid and sturdy and I think it fits nicely with the vintage and somewhat modern style of this room the lights are from Barn Light Electric & the windows are Anderson.

another of my favorite laundry "must haves" are these rolling canvas laundry carts... they can be stacked, are interesting looking and are virtually indestructible... and did I mention that small children like to get into these and get pushed around?  The little laundry ladder will work for herb and flower drying in the summer too... so much better than the front porch

I will share more projects and ideas soon!

Cheers

I've been following Hannah Lemholt's blog Honey Pie Living Etc. for some time now because I love her photography with all white walls and muted tone woods and textures...all so monochromatic with graphic prints and art on walls.  She adores herself so that she will often photograph her pouty lips, doe like eyes, her honey soft skin and her locks of hair like caramel, her features so perfect against light bright walls.  She will post these images on her blog...all so mesmerizing.  Hannah is not only beautiful, but she has great eye for details and style, so her new venture seems very fitting.  She has teamed up with four others in Sweden to create Love Warriors. A team of treasure-hunters that travel the world to find unique items and hidden gems in corners of the world forgotten by others.  They create their own design, born to life where recycled materials from demolitions, flooring, boats, doors, glass and oil drums meet.  

The Love Warriors are out to change the world with one unique object at a time!

I don't know why this story seems so sweet to me, but Jessy Heuvelink and Marcus Ullmarker a chief designer for J. Lindeberg and D.J. / music producer have created the perfect little nest for themselves in Sweden.  I like their simple clean and contemporary interior, but not so contemporary that it's cold and sterile feeling.  Combining texture and layers like what they've done help to warm the space.  The couple say they dream of something bigger, eventually a family life!  Awww. sweet.  But until they have kids, this nest is perfect for just the two.  You can read the full article here.  "Love Determines"  Just in time for Valentines day everyone!

Designed by Dutch designer Ineke van den Berg.  The designer created a casual atmosphere with linens, raw woods, concrete and grey. A combination of masculine and chic!

Just off the banks of 2 rivers that meet in Bayonne, France is a workshop occupied with flea market finds, sculptors, curios objects and rope wrapped furniture.  This is the studio and home of artist, designer, perfumer, artistic director, and jewelry designer Christian Astuguevielle.  He is known for casing furniture and objects in tight bundles of rope or cloth which is sought after by Nate Berkus, Philippe Stark and Bottega Veneta to name a few.  His studio/workshop is a place of bewilderment.  The juxtaposition of odd shapes, textures and quirkiness is what makes this space a little jewel of creativity.
