House Tour | Lee Mathews |

Wednesday, October 23, 2013









Here is another fabulous Australian home  I found via The Design Files, this one belongs to fashion designer, Lee Mathews. I have to preface this one by saying it's not exactly my style. Not because I don't love it, I do, in fact in my dreams I live in a book/antique store and this pretty much fits that daydream bill. But I am sure in my inability to keep an empty room de-cluttered this would be a difficult house for me to live in and it would never look like this again after I stepped foot in it.
But there are so many things I love in each space pictured (and obviously the space itself is amazing).

First the bookshelves, books are the one form of "clutter" that I like - toss 'em around (not literally of course), stack them up, plaster my walls with books and bookshelves, I will be happy. Also the ladder for the bookshelves, I have always wanted one of those too. There are so many beautiful rugs and throws and lovely textures. And of course all the gorgeous vintage pieces throughout the home, the beautiful vintage paintings, the industrial metal floor lamp, the desk and cabinets . . .

  1. Okay those bookshelves.... YES! I'm a sucker for a house of any style with TONS of bookshelves (you know this)

  2. Hmmm... I'm with you on the yes/no/maybe of this house. Love the white walls, love the wood floors, love the rugs. Of course I love books, but all together it feels a bit chaotic to me. I'm not sure why. Can we add vaulted ceilings to the list of things I love?

  3. i too love all of those book shelves and a ladder for it! that would be a dream, to have a ladder to access all of my books. i also really love that free standing, cylindrical, mail-like cabinet of drawers. it's amazing! i've never seen a piece like that before.

  5. Is it wrong that I'm a little turned on by the sight of all those books? That's my kind of home! I could do without chairs or fancy rugs or the inexplicable basket of pool balls (??). Just give me lots of windows, a comfy couch/stack of pillows on the floor, a lamp, and BOOKS. Love it. xo

  7. We need to have a chat about that bookshelf. And I love the sort of vintage eclectic vibe going on here. It manages to look interesting and warm and cozy all at the same time.

  8. Love the bookshelves too. And the ladder. The house is not my style either, but, yes, there are many elements I could borrow.

  9. Those rugs are amazing, I love all the colors and textures. I've been looking for rugs for the house for about 2 years now and I still haven't found the perfect ones. I think I may need to commission the rugs of my dreams.
