It’s not about faces, just places, spaces: Weekend home of Bradford Shellhammer


Not usually a fan of b.board but in this context it’s good.  Relaxed and cheeky – just like the rest of the house.

It’s been a weeny while since the last ‘It’s not about faces…’ segment and it’s come back into town like a band of colourful gypsies firing off confetti guns.

This home is a goodie.  It’s all that is good in the world and it’s just for the weekends.

Probably the best stop-in-your-tracks image I have seen in a while.  Get that red trim looking all cute as you like next to that nasty matte black.  Pop on top bright plates and a turkey head and BAM.  Magic.  There’s no kitchen unit – just an upcycled of a retro piece.  Well played Mr Shellhammer.  Spot blinkin’ on.

Ahhhh – more black matte maddness which could not be a better backdrop for the primary colour showcase.  And showcase it does.  I love you.

Carpet tiles replace a conventional rug in a mixture of black/white/and multi.

High fives for keeping the wood too.

The owner, Bradford Shellhammer is the creator and his home really represents what his company is all about – fun, whimsey and colour.  I love what he has to say about decorating your home…


“At Fab, we’re on a mission to rid the world of boring beiges—not get rid of beige altogether, per se, but to give people permission to explore and bring life and fun into the world they live in.”

Heck yeeeeahhh.
