Roof top oasis


Andrew O'Sullivan, Australian landscape designer created this lush Balinese inspired garden on a roof terrace. Inside and out meld seamlessly. Andrew's design philosophy is PEACE - Practical, Environmental, Attractive, Cost effective, Educational. He's well known for his use of salvaged plants and materials, something he has put into practice in this design. Another great example of sustainability and environmental awareness on the personal level.

Dog on a chair

Siobhan sent an email to give us more 'dog on a chair' material to post. This time it's the adorable pooch (Morran) of Swedish artist Camilla Engman. Thank you Siobhan! This just might be my favourite dog on a chair photo to date, because that Poppa chair is to die for. Morran too. :)

Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects

The firm of Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects began in the late 60's with Jim Olson, who based his designs on some simple ideas: "that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives." And as you will see by the photos below, it is absolutely breathtaking how the interior blends with the exterior. I always dreamed of huge glass garage doors that I could open and suddenly be outside. *sigh*

Grey, my favourite neutral


Update: Our friend Drey of bijou kaleidoscope just introduced me to the grey living room of Kim from Four Beds Two Baths, as seen above. LOVE IT! I always loved a teak credenza against a grey wall. Thanks Drey and kudos Kim!


My sister was talking to her neighbour the other day about grey walls. Her neighbour said grey walls were cold and depressing. I SOOOOO disagree with her, and so much so that I had to post some photos of grey rooms to prove her wrong. I LOVE grey, but I admit, choosing a warm grey can be difficult. But I think you can do alot with furnishings in a room with grey walls. No matter what the shade, as long as you throw in lots of creams and nice plush fabrics (faux furs in particular), or some pops of colour, like orange or yellow (both of which I adore with grey), you can't go wrong. To me, if a neutral is what you're after, think about using grey instead of white. Didn't you know grey is the new white? ;)
