Working on a Saturday

You must be sick of me saying it week after week but it still holds true. If you have to drag your sorry self into work on a weekend it better be somewhere stylish. Amen. Fjord Helsinki by Studio Joanna Laajisto.

Kaemingk Design

A big thanks to Chelsea Kaemingk for contacting us about the home renovation business she shares with her husband Brandt, Kaemingk Design. I really admire their timeless, classic and authentic aesthetic. Here is a bit of info from Chelsea and their blog: My husband and I are designers in Portland, OR and love to create homes with that handmade feeling. We love age, patina and imperfection which we usually pair with monochromatic color schemes and simplistic design. Whether the space is new or old their motto remains the same, to create spaces that become more beautiful as they age.

Saturday plans

It's summer in my part of the world and I can think of no better way to spend my Saturday than pottering around in my garden after I have finished the morning's paper. Perhaps a dip in the pool to cool off as the temperature rises. Later in the afternoon it will be time to crank up the BBQ to feed the friends whose children are dive bombing the pool. If there is a nip in the air after the sun sets there is always the fire pit. It's a perfect Saturday ... except my backyard looks nothing like this one by Landart Landscapes. Oh well in my dreams I guess!

New from Jessica Helgerson

Don't we all dream about it? A light filled Scandinavian getaway in a summer time holiday hamlet? Perhaps in the Hamptons? For Jessica Helgerson's clients it isn't a dream. Pale wood, white painted wood, handmade white tile, marble and brass. The perfect palette. It may be a departure from what we have come to expect from interior designer Helgerson but it's simple, light filled beauty is so inspiring.

A new visit to 40 Winks

It has been some time since I have featured 40 Winks, dubbed the world's first 'micro boutique hotel' when it opened in 2009. This 2 guest room space in East London is packed with charm and whimsy and I had to share more photos because it is absolutely stunning. (It is designed by David Carter)
