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 . . .
