Reader request - stair runners

This reader request comes from Melinda: "My partner and I are renovating our 130 year old semi in Sydney, he wants carpet on the stairs (because apparently I 'clunk'... which to be perfectly honest I do) and I want to stain the original timber. I'm thinking a stair runner may be the perfect compromise. I would be very much appreciative if you could dig into your amazing picture resources for stair runners." Here are some photos of inspirational stair runners for you Melinda, the first being my absolute favourite EVAH. (A bunch more are after the jump).

Dream space

Welcome to the oh so chic showroom and offices of Julia Buckingham Edelmann of Buckingham ID in Chicago. When Julia sent over photos recently I was green with envy. Never mind working here I'd move in and call it home. I love the stark white industrial meets sophisticated urban living vibe. Please interior design gods grant me that chandelier, the sculptures, the lucite chairs, Julia's office and the conference table and chairs. Congratulations on a fabulous space Julia!

Freunde von Freunden

A big thanks to reader Lilian for sending us the link to a German website which is going to be a new favourite regular stop of mine. It's called Freunde von Freunden and it's a spitting image of Todd Selby's The Selby, featuring glances into the homes and workspaces of creative people. I devoured the site and selected a bunch of photos that really intrigued me. Have a look (and more after the jump):

Hector Sanchez

  

It's all about the light. I know we say it over and over but these pictures from the portfolio of photographer Hector Sanchez prove it. These are wonderful rooms that don't need the glare of the spotlight to shine. I think the blue undertones that Hector captures in his shots are beautiful. Cool and elegant. Speaking of cool and elegant how about that lounging nook in the bathroom! Indulgent. Don't miss the cool apartment with plenty of retro touches including globes and a clever wardrobe arrangement after the jump.

More beautiful landscape

Monday was quite a day - 45 degrees celsius here in Ottawa (that's with the nasty humidex), work all day, a third visit with the florist for the wedding coming up in less than 3 weeks, and then a trip to deliver cat #9 to his new home (he was one of my fiancé's cats, who wasn't getting along with my 7). So I'm drained, exhausted and so damn hot (my house has no A/C). When my twin sister sent me a link to a story on Husohem, I figured I'd follow along with Jo's landscape posts from yesterday and post this gorgeous yard.
