This Ain't No Disco (it's where we work)

I happened upon the website This Ain't No Disco (it's where we work) the other day while googling for blog material. It showcases some of the best agency (advertising, media, music, technology etc.) interiors in the world. It was so much fun to see the creative environments where people work. Because I work for the government I'm stuck in a cubicle with green walls and blue industrial carpeting and a cream desktop. It's gross. I've been wanting to decorate it lately and when I have a permanent office in a couple months I'm SOOOO going to pimp it out. This site is so inspirational to get me to actually do something about the space I have to deal with 8.5 hours a day. I hope this inspires others out there stuck in a cubicle or equally horrible office to go nuts and make the space your own.

New work from Buckingham Interiors


Julia Buckingham Edelmann isn't only a talented interior designer, she's absolutely lovely. Julia emailed to thank us for featuring her work last week. She was particularly taken that DTI readers from 25 countries dropped by her website to admire her portfolio. It's amazing the reach of the internet isn't Julia? Kim and I still get goose bumps when we realise that all of you come from far flung corners of the world. Best of all Julia let me know that she has a new project just up on her website. It's a rooftop greenhouse project that she and her team turned into office spaces. Love the fun quirky touches! Thanks Julia!

Break

This is the last day of my 4 day weekend and I've got a ton of stuff to get done around the house. (I almost said that it's finally a nice day out, but then turned around to find dark clouds and sprinkling rain. UGH!!!) So I'm taking a blog break today. I leave you with the following photo from Marie Claire Maison, because I have recently become totally smitten with Moroccan/Indian decor.

William Abranowicz


Favourite of the shelter magazines William Abranowicz is also held in high esteem in art photography circles. His work hangs in collections around the world and he's taught at the Parson's School. I know I know we all think a great photo of a fab room is high art but you should really jump on over to William's website to see his amazing personal work. (These photos in the meantime are from his rep's site.) Whether editorial or art his portfolio is stunning. I was lost for what seemed hours in his inspiring work.

Retro time!


More retro inspiration to start your week. I'm really enjoying House & Garden Guide to Interior Decorating, The Conde Nast Publications London, 1967. So much is so right now - and so much is so not! Yes that is 3D bacon and eggs on the wall.
