UNDECORATED.

Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.01.15 AM T Magazine is killing it! This last issue was awesome. I loved the article where artists presented work of their own kids, loved the story on artist and chair maker (and the man who single handedly changed our thinking about Terrazzo!) Max Lamb. And I loved this story about Canadian globe trotting Art Dealer and furniture maker Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte. The man spends his time traveling the world and hopping between Milan and Beuriut, where this apartment is located. He tried to structure the 1950’s built apartment like a traditional ottoman home, with all the rooms centered around the dining room. I mostly like the organic, undecorated feel of homes like this. First of all, I’ve been LOVING the lack of headboards in certain rooms lately (although it can be really annoying if you don’t have a good bed frame, when I first moved into my apartment, I couldn’t get the wheels to lock on my bed and it would roll away from the wall every single night. I would wake up in the middle of the room with all my pillows on the floor behind me. KILL ME.) and second, while everything in this apartment is a special piece, either vintage or contemporary or made by the designer himself, nothing feels overdone. It’s almost minimalist, but its also clearly the home of a person who loves stuff, and will put anything in his home that he likes, with no apologies. The white walls, lack of window treatments and mostly off white upholstery, and lack of design-y textiles- paired with the casualness of the arrangements = a simple modern undecorated heaven of design objects. I’m particularly in love with all of the stone and marble tables everywhere. THOSE ARE AMAZING. Ugh, I want to live here.

Ok, enough, go enjoy! You can check out his Beirut based gallery Carwan for more info on many of the pieces seen here.  Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.01.26 AM Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.01.39 AM Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.01.49 AM Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.02.00 AM Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.02.13 AM Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 11.02.26 AM
