Omer Arbel

Rising from a gentle slope between two stands of trees is an extraordinary house. Concrete and glass, steel and massive reclaimed Douglas Fir beams. Triangles folding on each other and unfolding on the landscape. Monolithic presence lightened by walls of folding glass doors. It's like being under a cave like overhang. Shaded and cool, protected and enclosed looking out on the world. The weight of the concrete house rising from the earth juxtaposed with waving fields of grass, echoed by the mass of trees. Manmade vs nature. Solid form vs open spaces. All magically illuminated by "glow worm" lights hanging from its cave ceiling. A family house built on rural acreage designed by Vancouver based architect Omer Arbel.

Because I am really tired of winter...

...and because I love the design of this backyard. Jared of topsy design just completed decorating and landscaping this patio in the Hollywood Hills (where they get to enjoy decent weather all year round). Casual and vintage loveliness.

Pernille Kaalund

Miserable weather and a really crappy week so far at my day job has left me desperate for some eye candy as an escape from my reality. I have found some in the beautiful photography of Pernille Kaalund (previous post of her work here). 

P.S. I had mentioned recently about a "Chairity Competition" I was taking part in with 4 other bloggers for Urban Barn. Our chairs have been manufactured and you can now vote! Check it out here and I'd love your vote if you dig my chair!

Perfect Prue

I'm still so happy that I found my favourite kitchen from my favourite photo but now in real life (see previous post) that I had to share a couple more of my all time favourite Prue Ruscoe photos of another all time favourite house. I've shown these before but they are just so fabulous I had to take them out for another run. (The house is by Pamela Makin of Les Interieurs.)
