Its rare these days that i pick up a design mag & feel totally inspired!
I got the latest copy of Real Living magazine a few weeks ago & instantly felt inspired by the cover story. Its not a opulent interior that would cost a fortune to recreate - its a simple, liveable, 'real' but stylish one!
Lets call it contemporary coastal - it was designed by Tim Leveson who also custom made alot of the furniture like the dining & coffe tables.
Everything about this dining/kitchen makes me want to live here!
Love the custom made solid recycled timber table.
Love the DSW chairs.
Love the lobster pot as a pendant light
Love the colour of the kitchen island & splashback.
did i say i loved it?
The 2 black mirrors on the wall behind can be bought from Ikea & are a very chic addition to a coastal syle interior where you wouldnt ususally pick black as part of the colour pallette.
The Eames DSW chairs can be picked up for about $100 at many of the reproduction stores like Matt Blatt or Glicks. The cushions are from Country Road.
Again a mirror from ikea above the bed!
and driftwood lamps that i actually have myself at home!
(you can find them at Beachwood in Avalon on sydneys northern beaches)
Oh, this bathroom is so similar to one we designed for a client :)
(take a look below at my design!)
i actually like ours better ;)
plus our client found a fantastic bath mat!
Through this article ive also discovered a wholesaler of reclaimed timber & chinese furniture with a sideboard i think would be perfect for my own place! What do you think??
