There are quite a few things that get me excited in the world of interiors… a concrete floor, black cladding, little rustic cabins or architectural houses surrounded by nature and minimalist design are all things that I find extremely pleasing. As such Casa Tiny located on the Mexican coast ticks several of my boxes with the added value that you can book it on Airbnb! So if you are planning to travel to Mexico, make sure to bookmark it. Until then, let’s have a look at this little gem… Inspired by Henry David Thoreau’s “Walden”, Casa Tiny is a place to escape from society, enjoy a simple life for a couple of days, a week or a month in this minimal, low-impact, isolated abode. Ideal for people looking for a remote place to escape the city, casa tiny has everything you would want: a large big table outside to eat with friends, a hammock to enjoy your favourite book, a pool, a pizza oven and a private beach nearby. Not far from the striking Casa …
Today’s portrait session was in the new home of an Interior Designer. The house is not finished yet so we had to move a few boxes around to carve ourselves a little corner for the photoshoot but it was good fun. I will share some pictures with you once it’s finished. I loved the wooden ceiling, the concrete floor and this perfect little corner filled with natural light had two of my favourite chairs: the Panton chair by Vitra and the Eero Saarinen Tulip chair by Knoll. If you haven’t seen them yet, I have created a Facebook page for my Portrait Photography (click here to follow it) and a new Instagram account: Karine Kong Photography. If anyone is interested in doing a portrait session with me, I will be in London the first week of April so leave a comment or send me a message xoxo.
Last week, I featured two shots from this Dutch home photographed by Sonja Velda, first in my post about these four beautiful white kitchens with concrete floor and then this amazing sliding door in my DETAILS series. I thought the house was so beautiful that it was worth showing you the rest of it. I have also found out since then, that the vintage patchwork on the sliding door was a wallpaper by Studio Onszelf which made my day as this will be a lot easier to use! So without further ado, let me show the rest of this fabulous, family home. What do you think of this home? What were your favourite details? //Photography Sonja Velda with thanks
I’m loving this bedroom with a concrete floor. Be it in a bedroom, bathroom or kitchen (here too), concrete flooring is one of my favourite floorings. Each time I come across this bedroom picture on Pinterest, which was taken in the apartment of Designer Barbara Hill, I can’t help thinking how peaceful it feels and I imagine myself living in it. Maybe in a place like New-York overlooking the Hudson River… How about you? Where do you see yourself living in this bedroom? The bed is the Ligne Roset’s Peter Maly bed. Talking of which, if you’re looking for a vintage Togo sofa by Ligne Roset similar to the one featured in this fab, feel-good family home in Biarritz, check out Pamono in the UK. They have plenty of Togo sofas and armchairs in their collection. Photography by Dean Kaufman
