Alwill

WARNING. If clean modern lines, natural finishes, midcentury furniture classics, an understanding of the relationship between inside and out, the beauty of timber tick your boxes, if practicality is as important as beauty, if rooms should be playful and life is for living and homes are for people then Australian architectural firm Alwill will have your heart pounding, your palms sweaty and your head in a spin. Don't worry. It's not lethal. It's love.

WINKS

WINKS - weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we've found and things we think you'll want to see. If you'd like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we'll link you. So what's in this week?

  

  • Flotsam and Jetsam table coffee table by Melbourne based architecture firm Marcus O’Reilly Architect. Truly beautiful. Truly unique. Made from driftwood washed up on the local beaches around St Kilda. Love the markings, stamps, holes and hardware in the wood and it's pared back, rubbed down and waxed finish. Made to order. Details here

  

  • ´╗┐Need to find a Christmas present for your family's midcentury maniac. Blue Art Studio has two new posters featuring George Nelson and Ray and Charles Eames. Love their other digital art too. And here's a free 2010 calendar from the Blue Ant crew to download!

  • Don't think we've featured a sink plug before but hey why not when the plug looks as cool as this one. Water Stopping Water.

  • Please Santa I've been a good girl. Maybe one of these in my Christmas stocking. Danese Milano Perpetual Calendar designed by Enzo Mari. Slide the strips of wood  (walnut ramin beech and maple) to show the date in English and Italian.

  • Fun, quirky and just the right jolt of colour and pattern. Made from printed plywood offcuts the Artplay seat by Spacecraft is definitely on my wish list. Actually everything at Spacecraft is on my wish list.

Todd Alexander Romano

Surprisingly Jo and I have never blogged about interior design superstar Todd Alexander Romano, especially since his designs have been included in many issues of Elle Decor. Here's a little bit from his bio: "Todd is best known for his eclectic and youthful approach to traditional high-end interior design. He likes clean, classic backgrounds, be it either traditional or modern architecture with the use of fresh colors, comfortable seating, good lighting, great artwork and elements that add a touch of whimsy that ultimately reflects the owner’s personality. He adeptly mixes fine antiques, custom upholstery and modern elements to create environments that are above all exciting, appropriate and comfortable." I love that his designs are a mix of classic and modern, and he doesn't shy away from bold colours and patterns. He is sooooo inspirational.

Clive Tompsett

Three things I love, Fridays (YAY!), all things Swedish, a really good photographer. OK how about one thing I really really love, an incredibly talented Swedish photographer on a Friday! Clive Tompsett is my new photographer crush. Clean, crisp, great light, interesting composition and the man can make IKEA look amazing. Got to love it!
