I wrote last week about the British online boutique Pale & Interesting run by hubby and wife team Atlanta Bartlett and Dave Coote, two hugely successful interior designers/stylists (aka. a pair of freaking geniuses!). I was captivated by their respective websites for around, oh I’d say…..5 hours(!) and thought I’d take a closer look for today’s Masterpiece.
So first up we have furniture and interiors designer Dave (http://www.davecoote.com/interiors – link function STILL NOT WORKING), who as well as putting together quirky textural design schemes, has more recently turned his hand to renovating/creating rustic cabins (which are also le bee’s knees). He uses reclaimed materials wherever possible and manages to create the perfect blend of glam + rustic.
Here are my fave rooms from his portfolio. I’m DYING over this duck egg blue fireplace paired with the rich browns/reds – and those antlers are perfection!
Quirky gallery of mirrors vignette in the hallway?! Tick:
Apart from the property above, there seems to be a huge emphasis on shabby chic furnishings, all white décor and, my fave, white distressed painted floorboards, yeeha!
What a dreamy kitchen, seeing this makes me want to up sticks and move to the Cotswolds a-sap!
And here are some images of the cabins Dave has designed:
Love this screen-as-headboard idea!
And here are some of Dave’s furniture designs:
Okeydoke, so next up is the other half of this designer team, Atlanta Bartlett (http://www.atlantabartlett.com/portfolio) – she appears to focus more on interiors styling, and has some very impressive credentials to her name. Atlanta seems to also have a bit of a soft spot for the shabby chic aesthetic, but also adds more bright bold colour to the mix and uses more chandies than you can shake a stick at.
LOVE this simple sleek affair:
And these billowing bold drapes paired with that GORGEOUS chandie are making me go slightly gaga…
Incredible al fresco tablescape:
She also has a range of china for the Big Tomato Company (http://www.bigtomatocompany.com/collections.php?opt=6&start=48&search=), love the whimsical nature designs!
Ok, if anyone needs me today I suspect I’ll mostly be dreaming of shabby chic Cotswolds farmhouses…
