Rainy days and rubbish skips

My weekends are being devoured by new old house jobs. The painters start on Monday and to ensure our weekend is action packed my husband has hired a rubbish skip for the week. Think of me as the rain pelts down, lugging stones and rubbish from the backyard and removing old flyscreens and strange bits of timber nailed to walls for unfathomable reasons. The next old house before video is up on my page as well as a few of my recent thrift  and secondhand store finds like my new murano glass bowl on a thrifted ikat. That glass is almost edible! Yum!

A panicked, but welcomed Friday

Happy Friday everyone! I am spending the day cleaning house and rearranging furniture and panicking a bit as tomorrow there is a wee photo shoot at my humble abode. Since the hubby moved into my (now our) WAY too small home in May things have been in a bit of an uproar and I'm trying to make sense of it all. Regardless of the chaos I am super stoked for this shoot and can't wait to see the outcome. I'm a bit lacking in free time as a result so I thought I'd do a simple post today and showcase some photos from a French Canadian magazine called Décormag that I've featured a couple of times in the past (here and here).

Lorissa Kimm

San Francisco's Lorissa Kimm is a phenomenal architect who, while growing up in Tokyo, became interested in architecture after being inspired by the juxtaposition of ancient Shinto shrines and avant-garde modernist buildings. Her designs focus on the purity of forms and clean lines, a love of materials and light, a respect for balance and nature. There is no need for artwork when you have such beautiful architecture and surreal views to please the eye.

Alina Gozin'a

  

A picture is worth a thousand words so they say. It's true in the case of the portfolio of photographer Alina Gozin'a. Evocative and cinematic, it is no surprise that she is well known for her film stills, celebrity portraiture and of course her architectural portfolio. Drama and grace, emotion and desire. Whether moody neutrals, rich and wonderful or light, bright and airily modern, her work is truly inspiring.
