Union Jacks

Too cool! Rule Britannia! Jamie Oliver's new restaurant Union Jacks designed by Blacksheep. It's quirky, it's fun. It's cheeky and clichéd Brit through and through. Nostalgia and post-war echoes, childhood memories and great food. Not just a concept eatery with theatrics and bells and whistles though, it is a fabulously well designed restaurant as you would expect for a top chef like Jamie.

Stalking a farmhouse in Texas

I'm real estate stalking a little further afield today. All the way to the Lone Star State. How about this cute as a button 100 year old farmhouse on 8 acres outside of Austin? AND it's in wine country. AND it has a chicken coop and veggie patch. I think you all know I have a thing for country cottages for weekend getaways or even a complete tree change. Big thanks to Nettie for the link. You'll find it for sale here.

Minimalist staircase

Apartment in Paris by École and photography by Xavier Lucas. Lean and mean. Are you keen?

5 ... 4 ... 3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Let the outcry re safety, children, drunk in the middle of the night and building code begin ;)

Reader's home - Nusara's new digs

We received this email from Nusara the other day: A little over 2 years ago, I sent you pictures of our rental that we sadly left for a condo my husband & I bought. (We blogged it here). Finally, after blood, sweat and joyful tears, we've gotten our new nest in order. We filled it with the things we love whether they were found, bought, adopted or created by us. They've done a great job with their new digs - the colours, the fun wallpapers, and the coziness is still present from their last home. (More photos and descriptions here). Thanks again Nusara!
