European Eclectic

I had planned to work on this post from the plane yesterday but the wifi had other ideas.  That's what I get for flying Delta instead of Virgin America.  But I digress.  I was catching up on my magazine reading when I noticed how much I loved Harper's Bazaar UK editor Kim Hersov's London home in the October issue of Elle Decor.  (You can read the entire story here.) It was designed with Hubert Zandberg and has that eclectic mix of periods and styles that Europeans do so well.  It also features pieces by Christian Astuguevielle who I posted about on Monday.  See, there is a method to my madness.

If I remember correctly from reading that article, the father of her sons is South African, so there are great snippets of South African art and design in her home - like the Peter Hugo photgraphic art in the second pic, the traditional wooden furniture in some of the rooms... I think I saw more when I was looking at the magazine. Nice to see in such a beautiful modern home. Just as it should be.

I loved this home when I spied it a couple of months ago--thanks for reminding me. Europeans truly understand "The Mix" and how to make it happen for their homes.
