PAINT IT BLACK

As I said in my ‘fun and fabulous’ post (20.07.14) I have been revisiting house features from last year. This is another of my favourites from 25 Beautiful Homes last year. It is the stunning home of Jack Irvine also known as Brave Little Note, a musician from Edinburgh. Her gorgeous victorian double upper was featured in the Januarys edition. Beautiful high ceilings allow light to flood through the house, the enormous floor to ceiling victorian windows all have original shutters leaving the windows free of imposing curtains. I love the brave paint and wall paper choices in this house, the black living room is a bold statement and works amazingly well with the furniture in particular the Charles Eames basket chair which Jack found on ebay. She chose more delicate tones for the sleeping spaces, with a soft blue for Amelie’s room and a striking feature wall paper with birds for her own room. Jack completely redesigned the kitchen maximising space by having high units which sit comfortably with the high ceilings and leave plenty of space for a large dining table for friends and family. I love the kooky handles Jack sourced for her units they add a huge amount of character as well as style. There are so many lovely parts of her home, again it would be hard to choose a favourite… the colour coded book case is a must and obviously the Eames chair, Its amazing!
