Dark chocolate

I'm the sort of girl who likes a ristretto coffee, a few squares of dark bitter chocolate and perhaps a palette cleaning ;) hazelnut liqueur. This has nothing to do with real estate stalking except for the darkest chocolate brown exterior paint on this inner city worker's cottage in my home town. It's a brave colour choice in a suburb where cream and brunswick green predominate. The house appears staged for these real estate shots. I'd add another layer or two with personal items and fabulous art, loads of books in those empty shelves and fill those verandas with greenery and cane. Oh and a piece or two more of midcentury classic furniture.


Another hint

About a week ago I posted a photo of my kitchen, and mentionned a huge project I've been working on that I will be blogging about. My first post of this new project is tomorrow, so be sure to come back and check it out. But first, here's another hint.

Connie Braemer

Contemporary as well as modernist, clean, uncluttered and with clever space solutions, Connie Braemer's body of work has made her one of Canada's leading interior designers. Love her modern interpretation of the log cabin and that rich chocolate bedroom is sexy. The black kitchen with white sofa? Striking!


Maclean Bespoke Interiors

Jason Maclean is Maclean Bespoke Interiors, specialising in one off interiors and custom furniture. His passion for vintage furniture is obvious (and I'm envious) but he doesn't build sterile shrines to midcentury modernism classics. Clean, lean and oh so sophisticated. His collaboration with fashion designers Eley Kishimoto merges surface decoration and furniture form.


Janne Peters encore

Jo posted the work of photographer Janne Peters about a year ago, and I thought we were about due for round two. Her photos are so beautiful that they warrant another look.
