I felt I was well overdue a return to a set of photography so I’ve pieced together this selection from Renilde Depeuter who many of you may remember for her stunning mobiles we covered on the blog back in February. Initially I was just browsing around enjoying Renilde’s photostream over on Flickr and it took me a few minutes to twig that I’d seen her work previously. Today I thought we should focus more on her interior design skills as you can always revisit the last post by Mark for a view of her creations, if you haven’t already I’d really recommend doing so.
The reason I’ve brought this set across today is that I think it highlights how you can transform a space with subtle additions into something really homely and easy on the eye. I don’t think you have to go all out on the initial decor to create an area that is packed full of texture and character, the plants go a long way in providing substance to a space and a careful selection of furniture like we have here is always a winner in my book.
I’m also fond of the way that Renilde has utilised her large open window by opting for white walls, giving the kitchen an heir of space and putting more emphasis on the small items around the room. The place feels very lived in and alive without looking over cluttered, you can see she was in the process of putting one of her mobiles together just prior to these photos.
I think that’s what I enjoy most about this space as you can see it’s a working environment of a creative person and appreciate the fact these items have most likely been collected from thrift stores and from other individuals that create their own objects. There is a lot of nostalgia here for me and if you enjoy these too I’d urge you to visit both the Flickr page of Renilde Depeuter and her blog also, which is packed full of similar inspiration.
