Mill conversion

A big thanks to Iza who sent us a link to a converted mill in Poland (where famoust Polish writer Stefan Zeromski created one of his major novels). Jo and I are both huge fans of all conversions, particularly churches as we've featured several here before. This mill is pretty sweet, although is totally against all code (here in Canada anyway) with all those raised sections and stairs with no railings.

Look what a little blood, sweat and tears can get you

The other day we received the following email from Jennifer: As a long time follower of your blog, I know you do real estate stalkings. This is my home that I just finished restoring last year. It was built in 1917, nothing had been done to it, well I think, ever!!. It was scheduled for demolition when we bought it. Completely dilapidated, falling over....It took us almost 2 years to renovate it. The tears, the joy, the work....ugh...but the end product I am pretty proud of. We have just put it on the market today and I would love it if you would post some photos or the link! Any of your followers up for a move to Texas??? Now, it takes alot for me to be rendered speechless when it comes to interiors. This one did just that. And when I came to I made my husband come over to my laptop and showed him each and every photo while gasping and pointing. I'm not sure what I'm more shocked about - that this house was supposed to be levelled or that Jen is selling it. (Although she says they just finished one across the street and will send photos when they're moved in and have it all decked out - can't wait!). Listing link HERE

Muted mulberry

Scandinavian white walls anchored by dark floors. Muted mulberry and muddied browns flirt with slaps of black, dashes of blue, fresh flashes of cool green and slivers of silver. It's a sophisticated look, an elegant look, a muted maturity, a casual luxury by Wenche Holth of Suzani Interiør.

The potter's place

Cassiano Anjo was a journalist until the turn of a potter's wheel changed his life. "What can I say about myself as a potter? I have so much fun doing it, and started intuitively a few years ago, after attending a ceramic workshop with a ceramicist that does beautiful work with paperclay. I guess I cannot tell how exactly my work is going to evolve, it's kind of early, but I would visualize clean, organic forms, mostly in porcelain." Beauty in the pots, beauty in the studio. What a wonderful space to create. Earthy, peaceful, rich yet simple, layers of texture but always the smooth beauty of the clay. Cassiano's studio is in Uberaba, Brazil.

Kitchen inspiration

I thought those of you looking for a little kitchen inspiration might enjoy the following kitchens from the folks at Dovetail~Workers in Wood. They are based in Hampshire, UK, and obviously take pride in their work and create dream kitchens for each one of their clients. I love the details they've included in some of their kitchens - from a compost drawer to a little niche for trays. Check those out after the jump. First up, some kitchens that caught my eye.
