House Doctor – Everyday style

May 21, 2015

House Doctor
I first wrote about House Doctor back in 2011 and today this brand is still one of my favourites. I love their simple, clean aesthetic with that retro Scandi feel. Apart from their beautiful products, I always look forward to seeing their catalogues which are full of inspiration and fabulous styling. Locally you can find a few of their smaller pieces at Pezula Interiors in Cape Town.

Here are a few favourite images, enjoy…

Flower House

Flower House
Come late October, cutting edge florists will fill an abandoned house in Detroit with fresh flowers, vines, roots and living plants for a weekend art installation. Fifteen rooms will come alive under the creative eye of florist Lisa Waud. Judging from their May preview, the Flower House exhibition will be spectacular and is certainly not one to be missed. Now if only I lived a little closer! Read more about their wonderfully crazy mission here.

This house was once a home and will blossom again…

Lately I’ve noticed more and more of these beautiful circular mirrors popping up in my online browsing and in a variety of differently styled homes. The Adnet Circulaire mirror was designed by furniture designer, Jacques Adnet, in collaboration with the French fashion house, Hermes, back in 1950. This masculine mirror has a leather strap with equestrian inspired detailing and has become a rather iconic piece. Today the mirror has been reissued by Gubi so luckily you can still get your hands on one. Are you a fan of this classic piece?
