Lake house

The latest issue of Pure Green Magazine, is now available online (and FYI, it's launching in print in November!!) and the folks at the mag kindly sent over a whole bunch of photos of the gorgeous Muskoka lake house that is featured this month. It's the former summer home and now permanent residence of retired couple Donna and John Taylor that was built in the 1900's. Filled with finds from antique markets, it's got a wonderful casual and nautical vibe that is perfect for the surroundings. {All images copyright Pure Green Magazine; photography: Ever Images Photography}

Pure and simple

Friday finds me craving for a getaway from the bad, the mad and the ugly. So what's new you ask? Besides the fact that I fell badly in the main street this week and was taken by ambulance to the emergency department leaving my dignity and half my jeans in the street. Almost 50 and having one's trousers slit open with scissors opposite the post office is not fun however handsome the paramedic is. Nine x-rays later and there were no broken bones just soft tissue damage and a sad and sorry Jo dosed on pain killers. I hope this guesthouse has a bedroom with no stairs... and a shower. Don't think I can handle a bath. Back to today's sublime holiday property. Part gallery, part home, once a shipyard, always unique and poetic, hiding behind an unobtrusive facade. Apparently the bathroom is big enough to dance in. I think I'll pass on the dancing and instead drink in the loveliness of the simple luxury of Tielrode in Flanders, Belgium via Welcome Beyond. (Please forgive me. I'm not whining. I'm grateful to be home, in one piece and finding joy in a lovely home. Happy weekend!)

The Locals

A big thanks to Alina who sent us the following email: I've recently discovered a cool website, which main purpose is to serve as a meeting point for people looking for flatmates, tenants and apartments to rent. However, the website also has a blog which among other things publishes photos and short articles on the best rentals and apartments in town. While it is really hard to find a decent place in Moscow these apartments are really amazing. The Locals is my new favourite place to get a sneak peek into the homes of ordinary people. Perhaps I can't resist because there are often strategically placed pets in the spaces. :-)

Rob Mills

Lose yourself in Melbourne architect Rob Mills' portfolio. From contemporary to heritage to coastal, it will give you an insight into why Australian design is so hot at the moment. It's about light and space, inside and out, real living and realising aspirations. It's family and fun, memories and starting new, reformatting and respecting history. You'll see why on his website.

More Emily Gilbert

Emily Gilbert's photography talent was featured here in February, but when I happened upon her portfolio recently I discovered many more spaces yet to be showcased. You know you want more. And this time there are quite a few perfectly captured kitchens, among other rooms.
