Trump Hollywood

I am in desperate need of a vacation - well, a break from the chaos that is my life these days anyway. I'd love to spend a few weeks shacked up in this absolutely stunning vacation home in Trump Hollywood, in Florida. The model homes were decorated by award-winning designer Steven G. Here are some detials: The new 5,000+-square-foot Sky Residence, located on the 36th floor, is designed for those desiring the spaciousness of a private home and the luxury lifestyle of a turnkey condominium. The design palate, focusing on earth tones and rich, deep woods, is offset by an elegant travertine marble floor with unique tones of aqua and taupe. All the furniture was custom made for the residence, and a working fireplace in the living room sets a warm mood that is accentuated by magnificent Atlantic Ocean views. Now THAT is HOT

Stalking in New Zealand

It's Spring in New Zealand (lucky b*stards) and Sammy, a Kiwi and regular reader of this here blog kindly sent along some more links to homes there as the market is "exploding with gorgeous summery homes" as she put it. *still hatin'* One of the homes she linked to, located in Auckland, caught my attention. It's got some odd decor choices here and there but overall I think the owners did a great job. I love the kitchen and the exterior is adorable (we don't really have cute houses here in Ottawa). Link while it lasts. Thanks Sammy!

The New Artisans

Yesterday I got my hands on a beautiful book. Well I had to fight two friends who wouldn't give it back. The New Artisans by Olivier Dupon and pulished by Thames & Hudson is a must have book. A beautiful, simple celebration of the handmade and the one of a kind it takes an intimate look at 75 artisans around the globe who share the joy of creating beauty with their hands. Some you will know from blogs, others will be new to you but they are all leading members of the growing community who cherish handmade made exceptionally well. Over 850 images, 75 profiles, 320 pages, listings by category and all of it gorgeous and covetable. A lovely Christmas gift idea. The book is available online and in bookstores. The Facebook page is here. Also don't miss Olivier's blog Dossier 37.

LOVE

Love this colour scheme for a kitchen. 

Love the idea of an workspace behind semi-glass walls. Great for locking out the husband and 7 cats yet maintains a feeling of openness.

Love the muted colours and raw vibe of this living room.

Love everything about this bathroom (including cute little mirrors!).
