Casual elegance


Leibowitz and McLachlan are the new girls on the block. A sassy and sophisticated Sydney look in that laid back way that you know is classy without screaming brash. A daybed to relax in, a desk with a view, a cosy elegant family space to gather in. Think casual without sacrificing style.

Happy Thanksgiving


Just wanted to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all our Canadian readers. Especially to those who ate turkey last night like I did and are waking up looking for leftovers, only to discover someone got to them first and now there's nothing left except some veggies and a small mound of potatoes. :(

Retro kitchens

There are some things conceived in the 60s that hold their age quite well (ahem, ahem .... I'm a case in point) but there are others that are in serious need of cosmetic surgery or is that a complete gut reno? Here are some interesting to say the least kitchens from the era. OK, OK I could live with one maybe two of these.
