Goosebumps. That is what editor in chief Miluska van ’t Lam wanted to feel at an interior design fair. Or not, strike that. A boutique design event decorated by twenty of the best Dutch interior designers – that is what Salon Residence should be. A three-dimensional version of her magazine. And that is exactly how things turned out. You can experience ll the beauty that Salon Residence has to offer until Sunday September 13 at the Singer Museum in the Dutch town of Laren. Goosebumps – and great people watching – guaranteed!
A radiant Miluska van ’t Lam gives the press a guided tour through Salon Residence.
The Singer Museum was completely refurbished for the boutique design event. Even the walls in the oldest part of the museum got a makeover with frou frou wallpaper by Little Greene.
Lots of over the top styling in the theater section of the Singer!
Velvet and other rich materials in dark hues – I lurve it!
Why combine two floral patterns when you can also use for and throw in a taxidermied peacock for good measure?
Brass elements and the exact same Eighties glass table I bought for my own living room a couple of weeks ago.
More brass than you can shake a stick at with clashing geometrical patterns. Who says that everything has to match?
Dear Santa, please give me this blue marble table for Christmas.
This cobalt blue artwork would go perfectly with the cobalt blue Roman head in my living room, don’t you think?
Dark walls, dark ceilings and that Cole and Son wallpaper to spruce up the kitchen.
Pink flamingos are still hot.
All I wanted to do, is design a cosy living room – that’s what interior designer Hilde Cornelissen told me.
Brass wherever you look in this special gentlemen’s grooming corner.
Minimalism and Scandinavian design are soooo out of style!
A yellow sofa with a petrol wall – and why not?
These bright red chairs look extra good against a dark background.
Did someone forget his arm? Love the big and shiny table BTW!
I’m sort of done with brass pineapples, but this one looked pretty cool.
Hans Lensvelt and Edward van Vliet designed this supersized cabinet.
Loving the carpet by Edward van Vliet!
Monique des Bouvrie caused lots of ooh’s and aah’s with her Suite Eight design!
What can I say? Perfection.
Oh look – it’s Nina Campbell with Jan des Bouvrie. What a shame Bea Arthur wasn’t there – I would have had all three of my idols in one picture!
Excellent people watching at the opening party!
Correction: an earlier version of this blogpost mistakenly stated that the red cabinet was designed by Studio Job. Sorry!
