Saw this house in Portobello Road yesterday - there was something about it that struck me and I had to stop and admire the harmony going on here. Everything about this house feels at peace, the house looks so cosy. The warm purple and the flowers draping on the front, as well as the subtle grey of the front door and windows - all fit perfectly with the symmetrical design of the house. Basically I love this house-front, from colors to architecture!
I can only imagine how beautiful it must be inside…
Today was my first client meeting at Kulturhuset, the official partner and where the venue will be held for the sustainable design exhibition I am doing the web design/concept for. (More details on the exhibition to follow soon.)
Both Habibihus & Apparat - the interior designers &architects pioneering this exhibition - were also present at the meeting today. Very interesting to ‘shadow’ and see what a meeting for an exhibition of this scale - running for 5months - includes.
After the meeting me and Elise ran through some of the designs, and we sat down in the ‘Ekoteket’ cafe/restaurant area on the 3rd floor of the Kulturhuset. This is a stunning space that is updated every month with sustainable furniture designs, and where there are weekly talks and discussions about sustainable design. I have to say the color green is evidently predominant in this space, and I love that! It is a very inspirational space to be in, with a beautiful view of Stockholm of course. I include some photos here of my favorite pieces displayed, which coincidentally, some of them I saw displayed at Stockholm Furniture Fair that I posted on here too.
I’m so happy to be feeding my hunger and passion for beautiful interior design exploration, combined with design & strategy with this great freelance opportunity.
