Prue Ruscoe part 1

There are times when an artist's work reverberates with you. There is a gut reaction. An awareness that things are pretty darn good. Australian photographer Prue Ruscoe has long been a favourite of mine (as you can see here, here and here) so it was only natural to visit her work again after reviewing interior stylist's Shannon Fricke's new book How to Decorate last week.

Stalking 2

Warehouse stalking number 2. An apartment in a much bigger building in Surry Hills, Sydney. Perhaps we should call it a loft. Gone is the exposed and the industrial juxtaposed with the slick. Now it's slick and modern all the way. High ceilings, concrete floors and metal windows are a hint at its past but now there are plywood cutouts, stainless steel kitchens and designer furniture. Still a touch of retro cool though. Gotta love the marriage of retro and warehouse. Which do you prefer warehouse 1 or warehouse 2? Link here while it lasts.
