Finish off the week Vintage & Chic home of an artist and designer, Frenchman of Lebanese origin Mitri Hourani, who from and admire for their personal style and that has adopted the credo of recovering and giving new life to objects from the past which have fallen into disuse. With a fascinating theatrical aftertaste and a more than evident puntito “diogenes syndrome”, this house / workshop located in an old mill in Marseille I do not think leave anyone indifferent. I must confess that someday, when very old lady, I see myself living in a place, surrounded by junk. (Yes, xon accumulation and recovery under control and husband more than chastened, that gives me that will not be very keen).Although who knows, as Mitri himself says, it may be only a matter of stages. I loved this reasoning the artist in which he explains why the floor, walls and shelves are overflowing with objects “Save things in closets is useless. No avail them. I prefer to see them. I like to show them, show them to me … / … When I get tired of seeing them, and I keep ready “ In the end you have a video that teaches us Mitri own home. Highly recommended! · This is the home for french of lebanese origins artist and designer Mitri Hourani. As you see, this home will not leave anybody indiferent. A mix of old thrifted objetcs, textiles from different periods and origins, personal belongings side by side With upcycled pieces … all that and much more. I have to say. I admire the way I’ve created a home with all that, giving a cozy and theatrical atmosphere to His home in Marseille, France. And I completely agree With Him When He says something like “To keep my things in cupboards has no sense to me. I prefer showing them for others and for myself…. / … When I’m tired to see them, I just put them back in the cupboards”. So true. Do not miss the video at the end of the post, Where have shows us His home.
