talking about comissions, cooperations and team work … as some kind of hermit this is the most difficult exercise to me. but there’s so much to learn and win through the exchange of views, ideas or problems. thinking of that, first steps are taken more easier.
so i’m more than happy to name this first cooperation. bastisRIKE teams up with german interior design studio STUDIO OINK. those pics of my Objekt.01 at their home are the beginning of something totally new to me. and i’m excited and grateful at the same time. but no details today.
perhaps you already stumbled upon Lea’s and Matthias‘ work. right now you can find them and their inviting pale home in the current issue of KINFOLK. i’m just in love with their home and the wonderful work they put into it to appropriate this space. there’s a lot to take from when it comes to creating a home. even if it’s a rented one.
those days i get easily bored by those perfect – often black+white – interieurs you see everywhere online. don’t get me wrong, i like this style. but often i miss the personality of the inhabitants reflected in those homes looking like showrooms. one popular branded product next to the other.
but in this case it’s totally different. i can’t get enough of this beautiful space. even the tidyness does not affect it. white varnished pine, terracota, a lot of green, next to well chosen vintage ceramics. celebrating traditional handcrafts.
“Throw away everything you don’t need in your daily life except personal things.”
perhaps this is one reason why those rooms appear so personal and inviting to me. less is more. something they have in common when it comes to alessandra’s beautiful home.
two sources of inspiration when it comes to our next home, we hopefully move in before the next winter comes.
