Summer could not come fast enough

I hate winter. Always have. Every winter I wonder what in the bloody hell I live in Ottawa for. This winter was especially bad. VERY. VERY. BAD. Hence my excitement that spring has finally arrived. Spring and summer mean more than just warm weather. It means having more spaces to decorate. :) I posted about the rattan patio set I just picked up, which is a great start to my backyard space. I thought I'd go through my photo stash and see if I could find some inspiration for everyone in my shoes who is just dying to get started outdoors.

Must must must must must


Run out now and grab the latest edition (May June) of Inside Out. I cannot begin to sing the praises of this Australian magazine. Honestly I believe it is one of the best shelter magazines out there and this brand new edition has me jumping up and down. I've taken a couple of photos of my copy to let you in on what's in store for you. The cover tells you that Liza Giles is inside (yes I know that we've all been salivating over her home since it appeared in Swedish Elle Interior) but wait there's more. OMG the New York apartment of Australian stylist Sibella Court and the über cool Greenwich Village digs of Aussie Andrew Egan (just a taste in the last pic).


Go now. Camp outside your favourite international magazine vendor's stall and buy yourself a copy. As we say here in Australia - do yourself a favour! It has nothing to do with my own obsession with bus rolls. I swear! (Click on the pictures for their full gorgeousness.)

Nick Pope


Nick Pope has a knack for interior and still life photography. You could almost say he designs his shots, the composition and angles, the colour and light. His training as a furniture designer before he took up the camera as a profession is evident in his work. He inherently understands the "bones" of his subject matter. Don't miss his still life portfolio while you are at his rep's website.

The epitome of good taste (part 2 that is)


Time to revisit How to Decorate Without a Decorator, A Realistic Guide to Interior Design by Mary Gilliatt, Thames and Hudson, London, 1977. More rooms that were the height of fashion in the decade many think taste forgot. Love the batik cushions in the Central Park apartment. (Who am I fooling? I really want that view!) The green in that entry way/greenhouse is just beautiful and I spy a peacock chair! See I am a child of the 70s. I must be reliving my youth.
