Is it the downturn in the market or the fact that I am scouring the real estate pages for a development property of my own that I haven't been real estate stalking (more like just drowning in real estate) lately? Here's a small lot inner city pad perfect for your hip young couple or more likely your still hip older couple with pocket loads of cash. A little out of my price range. Here while the link lasts. And yes that is an open air shower. How cool taking a shower under the stars!
Tom Leighton's photography is the meaning of the saying "picture perfect". His work is beautiful. He makes me crave yellow with the photo above. And I LOVE the panelled/mirror wall. That would be such a simple and dramatic DIY for a dining room.
Grey is the "it" colour at the moment. Everywhere you turn, every page you turn stylists and designers are cocooning rooms in grey. It's the new black ... or should that be white. I love the dark brooding grown up feel of this house available through Inspace. Teamed with beautiful timber and the occasional jewel tone it is so rich it could almost blow your diet!
I love browsing a stylist's portfolio and seeing the creative ways they can organize vignettes, but often times I find the photos very product-y. But British stylist Emma D'Inverno has such an uncanny way of making the photos appear lived in and natural. Love that. And the colours in these spaces are so mild and soothing. Love that too.
.... the new work I keep finding by photographer Trine Thorsen. It seems whenever I need inspiration for around my house a quick visit to Trine's website and her latest shoots have my mind racing. I especially love this series as I collect West German pottery and hand thrown 70s pieces. A complete rearrange at home is on the cards. But don't stay here. Go to the website and drink in all the new loveliness. My favourite photographer!
