A mid-century renovation

My sister found a link to an incredible home renovation that had me in awe. The Lorna house was built in 1954 in Phoenix, Arizona and was named after the home's former owner of 40 years. Architect Shawn Kaffer decided to modernize the ranch-style house and WOW, did he ever. To get an idea of the extent of the renovation, here's a quote from Kaffer: "God rest her soul, Lorna had stuccoed the entire house. I couldn't sandblast with the way the stucco was applied, so I was out there with a chisel for about a year and half." (??!!??!!) I thought I'd include some before photos as well.

David Netto

It's been quite a while since we've posted about David Netto. He is definitively on my list of top designers. Love his use of colour, or lack of colour in some cases, and particularly the artwork. I have a thing for lots of framed photography used in modern spaces. So graphic and attention-grabbing.

John Paul Urizar


What's our mantra when it comes to amazing photographers? Lighting, lighting, lighting. For Australian photographer John Paul Urizar his use of beautiful lighting is a perfect counterfoil to his simplistic approach to what he captures through his lens. I've included tearsheets here and some of his personal work. (LOVE those b&w shots!) Whatever you do, don't miss the food .... yum!

Jeff Andrews at it again

Jo and I just got the scoop on the latest designs from one of our favourite designers, Jeff Andrews. The first 3 photos are too cute for words - rooms for a young boy and his baby sister. The other photos are of a new project - a home in the Hollywood Hills (photographed by Grey Crawford). Stunning, as always.

Maureen Footer


Maureen Footer creates rooms that are filled with light, elegance and colour. They are classic, sensual and beautiful but at times with a modern twist. Sensual is the word that comes to mind. Layered and refined, elegant but at ease.
