Tobi Fairley

It's Friday, thank gawd, and what a rough week it's been. I battled the flu, and I've been on pins and needles waiting for my younger sister to go into labour with her first kid (she was due on Wednesday). I have the day off from work today so my husband and I decided to tackle laying floating hardwood flooring in the master bedroom (which has been sitting in boxes piled up in the bedroom for MONTHS). It's GORGEOUS hardwood and I'll get some photos on here eventually of it. But for now I need a little pick-me-up, and I think some photos from the portfolio of Little Rock, Arkansas based interior designer Tobi Fairley should do the trick. She clearly enjoys playing up a space with lots of pattern and pretty colour choices. I couldn't help but smile as I snatched up these photos from her website.

Architectes Barthelemy & Ifrah

A little French design today. Modern spaces with a certain style, a certain flair. Welcome to the portfolio of Parisian architects Alexandre Barthélemy and Stéphanie Ifrah. I love the sense of space, the clever use of volumes, the vast versus the intimate. So much more to see at their website Architectes Barthelemy & Ifrah. Enjoy!

I'm in Glamour!

The lovely Leticia of Vintage + Chic blog kindly emailed me this morning about a post she published this morning of a story in the November issue of Spain's Glamour magazine. She emailed me because the story is about the magazine's favourite decor blogs, and both our blogs are included! There are photos of the bloggers (icky photo of me seen on the bottom of the 3rd page), and they covered half of the fourth page with a photo of my kitchen!! WOHOO! Congrats Leticia and the other bloggers mentionned!

Reader request - wall ovens

Today's reader request comes from Clare: "we are putting in a new kitchen and changed from a range to a wall oven.... do you have any pictures that you can share with some ideas for the placement of wall ovens." Doesn't get much simpler than that! Clare, here are some kitchens with wall ovens to help you plan your kitchen design.

Charlie Bennet

I am such a fickle woman, flitting from one photographer crush to another. I have a new love. Swedish snapper Charlie Bennet has gone straight to the top of my love list. Look at this work! At times moody, at times scandi bright but always great shots of great rooms. I want to move in and claim these homes as my own.
