Thinking outside the box-frame

This post was nearly titled The Ultimate Gallery Wall. Here’s why…

I decided against it because gallery wall hardly does justice to the part art installation, part anthropological collection, part collage in this extraordinary home. It belongs to Tokyo hairstylist Katsuya Kamo – I’ll hazard that you won’t find many hairdresser’s homes in the UK that look like this!

I’ve long been fascinated by old boxes of butterflies and insects… the one with the little white moths and ivory chess piece here has an eerie beauty about it. I love the box of heart-shaped pebbles too.

Now I’ve been known to stick the odd random object in the odd RIBBA frame in my time (Penguin classics, stamps, old maps and paper butterflies to name but a few) but Katsuya Kamo’s collection is on another level altogether. It’s amazing to think of the memories hung up on this wall, not only about the origins of everything but where each item or frame was bought or found too.

You can explore the rest of the house courtesy of The Selby and if a cutting-edge Japanese hairdo is on your wish list, look no further than this.
