A home to love

I find this Japanese home with its Parisian touches 
so effortless and appealing...



This lovely, sunny space is home to Hitoshi Uchida-San 
(owner of J'Antiques Tokyo) and his family, in Kamakura, Japan.

  1. Absolutely stunning home. I've seen a few of the images before but never the entire home and it's breathtaking! Love the swing too - I wonder if i could fit one into my home somewhere.....?

    1. I've had the fireplace picture with the row of Diptyque votives in my favourite for ages,
      but only just discovered where it came from today, too
      - not sure how I've missed this home...
      You should definitely try to fit a swing somewhere :)
      Have a lovely evening, x

  4. Wau ihan Mahtava koti. Itse uskallan pitää ovet vanhoina ja kuluneina, mutta muuten päädyin siihen seinistä tulee vain valkoiset eikä kalkkimaalatut ja vanhan oloiset, vaikka voihan ne aina uudelleen maalata jos mieli muuttuu.

    Hyvää illan jatkoa sinulle!

    1. Kuulosta äärimmäisen hyvältä,
      pitääpä tulla kurkkimaan mitä on viimeaikoina teillä siellä tapahtunut.
      Mulla ei mitään kauaskantoisia päätöksiä remontin suhteen,
      huone kerralla edetään.
      Eteiseen päädytään mekin aika puhtaaseen ja valkoiseen maaliin
      (&panelointiin), kun tila jää tosi hämäräksi.
      Nyt on lattia hiottu ja katto maalattu kertaalleen
      ja valon ja tilan määrä kyllä tuplaantui heti!
      Intoa sinne remonttirintamalle!

  5. You're right, it's great... very little clutter, but each item has patina, and energy and texture... pretty darn cool

    1. Yes, I love how sparsely it's decorated,
      with just the perfect amount of lovingly worn
      pieces strewn here and there.
      And yet it looks so comfortable and homely and happy!

  6. so many swoonworthy details. that leather sachel. the bit of lace. of course the swing! (my ikea one in my studio needs a hack as the red and black are no longer welcome now that i've muted things in there).

    happy wednesday, lovely blogger.

    1. I know, such beautiful elements,
      and juxtaposed against the very Japanese & scenery on the outside
      (more of that over at The Selby),
      it makes for a really interesting and endearing mix.
      Take care my lovely, x

  8. Great pieces. Great colors. Great patina. Marvelous swing. But the composition, the way it's all put together... not great.

    1. I love it so, too,
      all the details

    1. Thank you for leaving some words behind Ulf
      - I agree, a rather wonderful mix of cultures and influences,
      turning almost into a world of its own!

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
