An intimate view

How we see our home, what we focus in on, what treasures our eyes dwell on, the look, the emotion, that certain something, that's what is important. When we take our own photos of our inner sanctums we capture what is special to us. It is not about a magazine ready vignette or a perfectly styled shot. It's the corners that we love in all their ordinary beauty. Last week I featured the work of Swedish photographer Anna Daniellson. Fabulous and funky. Then an email landed in my inbox from architect Johanna Malcus of  studio rar, an architectural and design office in Gothenburg, comprising Johanna and industrial designer Märit Lagheim.  Two shots in the Danielsonn post were of Johanna's place. These are the intimate photos of Johanna's home as Johanna sees it. Both sets of photos are lovely but in so many different ways.

P.S. Check out studio Rar's cushion and mattress covers when you are on their site. Scandi retro cool!

Broder Frauenglass Interiors

We received the following sweet email the other day from Neil: I wanted to share some new design work with you that my mom and I collaborated on. Mom and I started doing interiors together a few years ago after causally helping one of my friends with her new apartment in Manhattan. We received some word of mouth referrals since then and have been doing projects ever since. I have a full-time job in advertising, but the design business with mom is my true outlet for creativity. And I love that design has had the power to bring my mom and I together as adults. The partnership challenges each of our aesthetics and allows us both to grow and evolve creatively. It’s been an amazing, unexpected journey. Now how cute is that?! Totally made my day. Here are some spaces designed by this mother/son duo as Broder Frauenglass Interiors, including Neil's own apartment (the first 4).

A Swedish apartment

I found a cool Swedish apartment yesterday on Lagerlings that I wanted to share. Not overly white, just the right amount of bold colour, and large photography for art (my fav).

Want need ...

... this gorgeous kitchen by Brisbane stylist Kara Rosenlund. I'd be smiling too if I could cook in a vintage dream like this. More of Kara's work on her website and for those readers in the Brisbane area Kara and her Travelling Wares caravan shop (otherwise know as Frankie) can be found at the Jan Power Farmers Markets this Saturday 11th February at the Powerhouse, New Farm .

Ashli Mizell encore

New work from  Philadelphia based interior designer Ashli Mizell. I love the rustic look of the tiles against the marble and cabinets. It's rough vs smooth, modern trad with a twist of ethnic. A clash of tiles reminiscent of the pattern riots of the riad plays with the calm of the white while smoky hues play with earthy oranges. A hint of Morocco. It's the layering that comes through in Ashli's designs. Pattern on pattern, texture on texture. Rustic on the modern. (Original post on Ashli Mizell here.)
