Justine Hugh-Jones

It's a mix of contemporary, antique and custom that interior designer Justine Hugh-Jones brings to her work. Layering texture on texture in her mainly monochromatic rooms hers is an easy elegant style. It's a refined Australian style but via France, Belgium and Scandinavia as Justine studied and worked in Europe before moving to Australia more than a decade ago. In this time Justine has really embraced a casual style that embraces the Australian light and the open plan living common here. I really love her bathrooms. I'm saving these in my inspiration file. (I just wish that the images on her website were bigger ... I need to drink in the detail.)

Slacking off

I am trying to get some posts done to publish at the end of the week while I'm still on holidays, so I thought I'd slack off a bit and just use this post to showcase more photos from one of my favourite websites (particularly for small space solutions) Du côté de chez vous.

Dragging my feet stalking

I'm exhausted. Exhausted but excited! But first things first. Isn't this the cutest sandstone cottage? A mix of traditional 1880 house and contemporary refurbishment. I'm stalking in Paddington in Sydney so no need to ask the price because 99.998% of us won't be able to afford it! Still we can dream. (Link here while it lasts.)

And the reason for my excitement? We signed on a house today! 1860 brick and cedar two storey house with original brick separate kitchen. Four fireplaces, well two in the main rooms, one in the kitchen with a wood burning stove and a tiny one in the tiny stables at the back. I have dozens of photos. Let's call them the befores as there is lots of work to do but I still have to upload them and I'm exhausted, physically and emotionally. In a good way of course. I'll let you know when I have the photos done. I'll even bore you with them on my page. Need a scotch and to put my feet up. Enjoy this house instead because at the moment mine is no where near as grand :)

SemelSnow

I recently came across the website for interior design firm SemelSnow, based in Chicago and run by Arlene Semel and Brian Snow. Their look is seemingly contemporary but a second glance reveals some global and modern influences which counterbalance each other very well.
