On Japanese Trash this week: British Influence. | japanesetrash.com

This week I’m trying something new: an entire week of posts that look at a specific masculine design inspiration – the British Isles. From Union Jacks (see above) to Sherlock Holmes, I’ll be giving the Japanese Trash spin on British Influence in interior design.

Here is a peek at some of what I’ll be covering on the blog this week:

Minimalist Designer John Pawson

One of Great Britain’s most influential designers, John Pawson‘s aesthetic is found in everything from cookbooks to Swedish farmhouses.

Chesterfields

Perhaps the only interior piece more British than a Chesterfield is one with the Union Jack on it.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

I’m a huge fan of movies and television, and one film coming up is this one; I’ll look at the specific British styles that show up in the trailer.

Keep Calm and Carry On

Is there anything still to learn from the little poster that could? We’ll find out this week.

Abigail Ahern

No look at British Influence in interior design is complete without checking in with the doyenne of darkness, Abigail Ahern.

The Conran Shop

Designer Terrance Conran founded one of the first lifestyle brands when he opened The Conran Shop. I’ll take a look at the brand’s influence on our daily lives.

Sherlock Holmes

I’ll wrap up the week with a review of interior design ideas inspired by the latest incarnations of the world famous detective who lives at 221B Baker Street.

I watch a lot of television and I seem to always be able to find something on the tube that inspires me. Recently, a new Batman-inspired series premiered; it’s called “Gotham” and it has plenty of rich visual textures that translate surprisingly well to interior design options for those of us on this side of the screen.– See more at: The Interior Collective.

Bedside Manner: What's your nightstand style? | japanesetrash.com

When we moved into our house nine years ago, we bought nightstands—two, just alike—that are perfectly fine. They have a top, a drawer, and a large open area below the drawer. They’re by Thomas O’Brien (woo-hoo!) for Target (okay…) and there’s not a thing wrong with them. Where is this going, you ask? Well, since then I’ve had a lot of time to rethink almost every decision that was made back then and second guess myself. When I was renovating our bedroom, I’d get different nightstands for each side of the bed, and I’d make each one reflective of our individual styles. Which leads me to the question: what’s my nightstand style? More importantly, for the purposes of this post: what’s your nightstand style?– See more at: The Interior Collective.
