Beach stalking 1

Monday morning has come and gone in Australia (I'm always 14 hours ahead of Kim) and I had a severe case of Monday-itis. I must have suspected that that would be the case when I loaded pictures for my posts for the week on Sunday (yes I was that organised). I've been stalking seaside resorts. I think I needed to wake up in this Pearl Beach house. Only meters from the beach north of Sydney it comprises 2 pavilions combined by an outdoor dining area. Looks like plenty of room for everyone else suffering from Monday-itis. We could start a support group ... on Tuesday. Link here while it lasts. P.S. The real estate blurb says it belongs to an interior designer. Any idea who?

Teeny, tiny reader's home

Elizabeth lives in a 350 square-foot apartment in the lower east side of Manhattan. YES, it's that small! However she and her boyfriend have managed to make it look cute, inviting and cozy! And best of all they are very happy in their small home. To find out more about why they live in such a tiny space you can head to her blog In Between Seams. Could you do it? Even with the pay off of living in Manhattan?

The definition of eclectic

My previous post talked about a mix of styles. I found another home in keeping with that idea. This one is furnished from elements all over the world - a German chair, a Chinese stool, Balinese artifacts, a Provençal table mixed with Bertoia side chairs, even my favourite - Moroccan beni ourain rugs. Mikel Irastorza, the interior designer, has some rather large kahounas. :-) (Via Nuevo Estilo)

A welcome mix of styles

I really REALLY love the following home I discovered last night while doing a quick jaunt around the internet. It's Spanish, built in 1900 and maintains alot of the original architectural detail - the mouldings are to die for! The juxtaposition of these details with the vintage furnishings with a retro vibe is what makes it so appealing to me...and those incredible tile floors.
