It's November. Too soon for Christmas?

I know. I know. But I couldn't help it when I saw this wonderful wreath on photographer Virginia MacDonald's website. Go on yell at me for mentioning the "X" word but it will probably take you 2 months to weave this :P Lots of lovely lovely photography lolly on Ms MacDonald's site. That's why she is one of Canada's leading photographers. (Kim's previous post on Virginia MacDonald here.)

Change of seasons

Swedish stylist and creative director Mikael Beckman has sent us his latest work for Svenskt Tenn. Love the warmth, the soft light, the sense of comfort, of cocooning, settling in with favourite things as the weather closes in. (Svenskt Tenn has opened a newly refurbished Stockholm store. Mikael says it is a must visit.) Love Mikael's concept sketches as well. The perfect way to pitch his ideas.

Sky high stalking

What a aview! What an apartment! I"m real estate stalking in Camperdown on the Sydney city fringe. It would be tempting to let the view do all the talking but this apartment can more than hold its own against an impressive backdrop. Not brash and bright coming ready for the fight but stylish and comfortable, an easy modern elegance. Almost as comfy as that pillow seems to be for the four legged member of the family. Link here while it lasts. (A big thank you to fellow real estate stalker Andrea for tip off emails!)

Some odd and some not so odd spaces

I've got about 5 minutes to get this post ready as I REALLY must get back to studying (although I'm thinking that at this point, stabbing myself in the eye with a dull spoon would be SOOOO much more interesting). Luckily Jo has agreed to post for me tomorrow and Wednesday while I cram my brains out. So I quickly went looking into my folder of goodies and came across more photos I had saved from the Israeli site bvd back when I had found this overly industrial apartment. There was a gamut of spaces - from totally odd to modern and cool. Here is a bit of both - odd first, not so odd after the jump.
