Thank heavens for Google translator. For kindly deciphering the consonant-heavy Swedish words on the Elle Interior site. Not that I needed them, really, what with these wallow-worthy images. I love these international interiors mags that present unusual spaces and styling. As much as I enjoy our local Vogue Living and Inside Out, I am not often pleasantly, visually surprised. The apartment featured above belongs to creative body Marcus Hay, stylist/art director/designer. It may be my favourite print-featured apartment to date. Blue/puddle-coloured walls? A harlequin? A multitude of little things that you want to pick up? ANIMALS EVERYWHERE? This man is my German-born-Australian-raised-New-York-residing kindred spirit. HF.
