School (trend) report

11 Aug

When I first started working in magazines, the concept of a location house – empty houses booked out for photo shoots – was completely new to me. If you know where to look, there are lots of agencies that specialise in hiring out interesting houses and their websites are a great source of inspiration.

I was browsing Airspace recently and these two homes caught my eye – both tap into the trend for science lab style. Let’s have a snoop around…

I love the vintage furniture and accessories in this converted school – did you spot the kitchen cupboard doors made from recycled wooden tea chests? Yum!

This little place is simply called Medicine Chest and is packed with old medical equipment and pharmacy furniture.

I particularly like this little display of glass bottles and vials. I’ve often seen these in junk shops and thought they’d be great for flowers but I’ve always been put off because the bases aren’t flat and they won’t stand up by themselves. Now I’m going to keep an eye out for some nice rusty stands so I can create something like this.

I wasn’t too keen on science at school but I think I’m converted!
