Rove Concepts


Brad Ford encore

We showcased the talents of interior designer Brad Ford last year but on revisiting his site I discovered even more elegant and beautifully understated rooms. Timeless, functional yet stand out spaces are stunning in their simple sophistication. Lovely!!

Buttrick Wong Architects

On Friday I posted Julie's incredible home and because the details in the architecture of her home was to-die-for, I had to go snooping around her architect's website. I thought Jerome Buttrick was super-talented after getting a glimpse into Julie's home, but I found out he's even more talented than I thought! It's modern, sustainable and warm with extraordinary attention to detail.


Omniarte Design and Erinn Valencich

There are some people who do it all. Then there is the rarer group of people who do it all well. Erinn Valencich seems to have the golden touch. Interior designer, lifestyle television host, cook and entertainer extraordinaire, stylist and writer. We only have limited space to showcase her rooms so a visit to her Omniarte Design website is a must. The only thing that would make it all more perfect? Larger yummy photos!

I spent a wonderful morning flipping through stacks of secondhand books at the Lifeline Bookfest .... over a million books and Jo had a mission to find lots of retro decor. So let's start with these images scanned from Inside Today's Home, 4th Edition by Ray & Sarah Faulkner, Holt, Rinehart and Winston, New York, 1975. A wonderful book full of ideas and images to inform and delight... and to remind us that retro can be fantastic or downright frightful. Enjoy!
