Curated Obsessions #1

With May coming to an end and the official summer months soon here I thought it was time to launch a new monthly feature for Architerior. Each month I’m sharing an article where I list my favourites and current crushes within all the Architerior categories – Architecture, Art, Interior, Travel and Style. I hope you will enjoy it and feel inspired! Let’s take a look at some choices for May!

ART

This month I’m obsessing over the fantastic collage sculptures created by Gregory Hodge. The Australia based artist blurs the boundaries between two and three dimensionality and playfully explores the space between image and reality, representation and abstraction. Using a ray of materials and techniques, his works manage to trick the eye and tickle the imagination.


INTERIOR

Our new house has given me many opportunities to explore interior styles. I’m currently delighted to put together some mood boards for a little room which will satisfy my love of English tea rooms and 19th Century horse paintings. Such a thrill to get to play around with this style period, and it’s fun to explore grand plans for a small place!

STYLE

This month I’m enjoying my new tote from Coach. I have really fallen for this brand lately and love their elegant styles and long history. Not my first and definitely not my last purchase from Coach.


ARCHITECTURE

I’ve been inspired by architecture projects with organic shapes and one that caught my eye is Casa Organica, designed by Javier Senosiain Aguilar in 1985. The building is located in Mexico City and I love how this round and flowing house is incorporated into the landscape. It combines cave like minimalism with well designed luxury, and I think this juxtaposition is what makes the building so interesting.

TRAVEL

I’m sure I’m not alone in missing travel right now! I was really looking forward to a trip to the Amalfi coast at this time but it had to be postponed until fall. I can’t stop myself from looking at old photos from my last trip to the area and dream of these gorgeous places!
