Industrial chic

One more sleep until Christmas!! I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend filled with joy and laughter, lots of good food and granny naps. I'm not sure what Jo's plans are for blogging (I've missed her on MSN the last couple of days) but I'm going to go ahead and say I likely won't be blogging tomorrow or Sunday. So enjoy yourselves, but first, I'd love to show you this home I found on the website of French magazine Le Journal de la Maison. I LOVE this home. The owner seems to love natural materials and flea market finds, particularly with an industrial vibe (me too!!). I was drooling over each one of her funky light fixtures (hello Jielde!). See you all soon!!

***Update: speaking of industrial/thrift finds, check out this post on my page for my latest find!

Loft love

Spirally into love here folks. Love the open space, the white mixed with wood and black. Rustic and modern and all tied together with one sexy black spiral staircase. Clever sliding walls define the children's sleeping areas. The Crosstown Loft by Campos Leckie Studio based in Vancouver, Canada.

A virtual retreat

I'm still battling the chaos of the holiday season and I could use another short virtual holiday right about now. Jo blogged about Greek photographer Vangelis Paterakis last year and a reader recently reminded us of the fabulousness of his portfolio (thanks Zoe!) I love the simplicity of this home and the use of stone and concrete. It's modern yet rustic at the same time. Love that.

Blue blue days

One of our favourite interior designers Jason Martin (his DIY+ series for Desire to Inspire is here) is now the design director at Kristen Buckingham (see Kim's post on Kristen here). He emailed to let us know the website has been recently updated and to share a few photos of the new showroom on La Cienega Blvd in Los Angeles. Swoon! That blue! And I would never have thought to pair it with the strong presence of the black. The showroom looks perfect. I'd love to spend an afternoon taking a closer look. Now don't forget to send us any new work Jason ;)

Johanna Ekmark

  

A delight to the eyes. Yes like a drink of cool water. To capture the beauty of the everyday, of a family homes, of a precious object. I'm still caught up in the wonderful world of the talented photographers whose work graces the pages of our favourite shelter magazines. Johanna Ekmark has shot for the likes of Marie Claire Maison Italy and Elle Interior, Sköna Hem  and Lantliv. I love those first two photos. The light is fabulous and that kitchen is just perfect. Enjoy!
