Rove Concepts



I'm working in the garden this weekend. What about you?

WINKS - weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we've found and things we think you'll want to see. If you'd like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we'll link you. So what's in this week?

  • Jeni from Rian Rae emailed to let us know that there are lots of lovely new things in her store. How does she find such beautiful pieces?

  • Architectural and furniture designer David Sears has released his new range of furniture. The concept for Sears' "Cube Furniture Collection" sprang from his desire to pare down design to its base elements of function and form. Economy of design not only gives his collection a modern feel, but works inherently with the concept of sustainability and eco-living. Available at EcoModern Design.

  • The latest from Radius Design is the Tree of Charge. While your cell phone, digital camera and mp3 player charge their batteries under the tree, the mains adapters are hidden inside. The decorative tree made of powder-coated steel is not just low-maintenance greenery, but also functions as a key rack and magnet board. And with the photos of your loved ones, it becomes a family tree. Perfect for your your landing strip! Thanks Andreas.

  • Love these new fabrics from Anna Ka Bazaar. I'm dreaming up endless schemes for using these.

  • Home decor, nerdiness and function coalesce in these latest offerings from BowerBird & Olive. The sacred heart oil lamp is either wall or table mounted with heart shaped lab ware and blood red oil while the boiling flask diffuser lets your inner aromatherapy chemist play.

  • Gosia from one of my favourite Etsy stores blue bell bazaar emailed with exciting news. "I would like let you know about my new adventure.From March 1st I'm renting a space at Heritage Trail Antique Mall in Wilmette in Illinois, where I will be selling my vintage finds and my hand made glassware. Of course my weekly updates for people far away will be still running .... I hope that you or your readers will come to see me one day." Don't think Kim or I will be making the long trip very soon from Canada or Australia but doesn't mean we can't dream of the treasure we'd find.


Tom Atwood

I adore the photography of Tom Atwood. Perfect angles to show off the splendor of each space. There is nothing more fabulously bold as white walls and thick black framed doors and windows (and that railing!!), and that white kitchen is divine.


Fuse Interiors

Danielle of Dublin-based Fuse Interiors just sent us photos of her latest work and while her first work that we featured here was impressive, these photos rock my world. Modern, hip and fun. And great wallpaper to boot. :) (Thank you Danielle!)


Monica Bach

Lights, camera , action or in the case of photographer Monica Bach it's light, camera, inspiration! Look at these photos. Isn't the light just dreamy and aren't the spaces she has captured through her lens so inspiring? Like Kim I'm dreaming of taking shots this good. Don't miss her kids portfolio. Cute!


Latest from 3 Fold Design

We received a lovely email today from Page of 3 Fold Design that I wanted to share: "Kim and Jo, you were both so kind to feature our firm on your blog. For a small design firm trying to do modern design in a state where Tuscan is still king is challenging, so thanks so much for the feature. I wanted to email you some pictures of the latest project we photographed for a young couple buying their first townhome and done on a budget. It is possible in this economy to get good design and not spend a fortune." Photos of the living room in this home on a budget are below - love the colour scheme and that ceiling is amazing! Thanks for sharing Page!
