Inspiring Interiors

Yeah, I could live there.


Yeah, I could live there is a D16 feature wherein I post pictures of homes I want to break into, kick out the inhabitants and move in. This week, I’m staying local! I’m going right down the road to my former Brooklyn neighboorhood, DUMBO, where interior stylist Martin Bourne and fashion stylist Leilin López live.

So…HOLY COLOR. That hot pink Wegner Teddy Bear chair is killing me. I want that chair in my life. I want to come home from work every day, climb into it with a cup of tea and a dog on each side of me, and sit there for hours.


Pale greens and blues aren’t typically where I tend to go color-wise, but I love it here. If everything were white (which is probably what I’d do), the space would still be gorgeous…but it wouldn’t feel as warm as it does here. It’s tough to make an open loft feel this homey. I love it.


Such a nice office area! Simple steel sawhorse brackets combined with regular old 2x4s are a great way to make huge worktops for very little money.

Those Hugo Guinness pigeon linocuts have been on my wishlist forever. Someday! Sigh…


Hello there, giant dining table. I love long, shallow tables, at least ones that don’t feel formal. Like the desks above, this dining table—made by artist Jarrett Mellenbruch—appears to have been constructed from very basic materials. It’s a really lovely design. Combined with the Wegner and Børge Mogensen chairs, I’m in heaven.

    I love this shade of pale green, but seem to suck at picking it out on a paint swatch. I recently painted a stool, and kept unintentionally picking greens that are too minty despite trying to skew towards soft greens with a grey undertone. But after two trips to the paint store and two paint jobs, I decided to live with the minty-ness in all it’s glory.

    Looooove the dining table! Space permitting, I’d love something just like that in my next home.

    The open plan is amazing!
    It’s inspiring me to think about not being lazy and finishing decorating my flat!
    (Thinking about it is the first step lol)

    Holy color indeed! I love how HUGE that space is as well, but it doesn’t feel cluttered. So so dreamy.

    That first picture was on the cover of AD Spain about 2 years ago. It was my favorite one! :)) i am always drawn to that tree art. So beautiful.

    Oh boy, the teddy bear chair by Wegner, I love it so much. I had my first and only love-at-first-sit experience in that chair. It’s just the perfect comfy one for relaxing, having a cup of tea while reading a book. I wish I had the cash for it. Every once in a while I go to Illum Bolighus and sit in the one they have on display and keep dreaming, one day, it will be mine.
