Extreme penny tiles

Mina of the blog La Résidence! wanted to share with us her newly renovated white penny tile bathroom. I don't think I've ever seen so much penny tile in my life...and I freaking LOVE it! I cannot wait to get my hands on some when I get to redo one of my bathrooms. Anyhoo, they were so clever with space planning - with alot of plumbing going on in the walls they hid it all by building a shower bench, which has all the plumbing running above and below it. They also built 3 niches to store all sorts of bathroom necessities like towels and shampoo, and a 'shower tower' which had to double as a water barrier since they did not want to add a shower curtain or glass door. It's fantastic. Kudos Mina for all the hard work that went into this FAB bathroom!

A boutique of unmentionables

Justyna Friedberg's Morpho Studio is at it again. First we featured an advertising agency her firm (based in Poland) designed, now it's an exclusive lingerie boutique, located in a historic, renovated tenement in Kraków’s Old Town. There are several intriguing features, like the use of an antique Singer sewing machine that was fitted with a top and serves as a coffee table and the creation of a counter that looks like three huge drawers put one on top of the other. It's gorgeous - love the white scheme that really showcases the products, and the whitewashed fittings are beautiful and give a bit of a casual feel.

Geremia Designs

This post is one of 3 I have planned for today of some designs we've been emailed as of late. I'm taking you into the commercial design world (for a bit of a change from our usual residential interiors) of a new designer out of San Francisco - Lauren Geremia of Geremia Design. "She is leading the pack in restaurant, bar and office design in SF. Formally trained as a painter at RISD, her style has an extreme artistic approach. She always combines reclaimed pieces with unique wallpapers from companies like Trove, and furniture from companies like Uhuru." I like her funky style. Can't wait to see the residential projects she's got coming up next year.

Sydney stalking

It has been hard to find houses to real estate stalk lately. The Australian house market has stalled and everyone is waiting with baited breath to see what happens next. It's not so much real estate stalking but real estate skimming, flicking from page to page and never stopping to stare through the virtual windows. Today's house is a very sophisticated, inner city pad. I'm imagining a stylish gentleman of a certain age with a successful career perhaps in a creative industry, many friends but no one special in his life or should that be no one person. He is an epicurian, a bon vivant, well travelled and always in demand. His dinner parties are legendary but alas he has so little time to relax these days. OK this is getting freaky. I feel I really am stalking the owner. Back to the house! Enjoy!

Meg Braff

Back in '07 Jo blogged about the remarkable portfolio of interior designer Meg Braff, mentionning her passion for color, fabric and pattern. Well, things haven't changed much in almost 3 years, as her portfolio is abundant with vibrant and fresh designs that are awe-inspiring. I particularly love her Asian touches. GORG!!
