Is there such a thing?
I have been thinking recently about a lot of the images posted on blogs and in magazines…so many of the images are of rooms which are beautifully decorated, immaculately coordinated and primped and styled to within an inch of their lives….yet they are soulless.
By this I merely mean that they do not look lived in at all..one has no indication of who lives in the space , what their interests may be or what they like or dislike. I find this a bit disturbing to say the least…it is all well and good to live in a neat and tidy space, but to have no indication of one’s personality injected into the room might deliver a beautiful space in a technical sense, but in my humble opinion, it leaves the viewer wanting more .
One of my all time favourite apartments ever is that of Kate and Andy Spade.Their space is filled with character in the form of well-chosen furniture, art and accessories, yet none of it looks “designed” but rather a collection amassed over time and with each piece chosen with thought and consideration.
Imagine my delight at finding these vibrant images of their Hamptons home…which, in essence, appears to be the same as their New York apartment.
Just look at the exterior shots of this gorgeous home…..
I would love to visit for a weekend…it looks like a great house for a fabulous getaway with interesting people!
