Tali emailed us with links to Israeli design. "I wanted to bring to your attention the existence of Israeli Design. In recent years, we've had a huge transformation in this branch in Israel. The Israelis were never known for their good taste. It's a relatively new country, with no heritage of craftsmanship and art and for many years, interior design was considered to be 'not important' here. Most Israeli houses were not very decorative, and in many cases were simply tasteless .... That has radically changed in recent years ..... (one link) is a site of a very talented young Interior Designer named Uri Ronen. His design is very modern, yet it retains the unique "Israeli Spirit" of warmth, lightness and homeliness." Uri's architecture and design practice is based in Haifa and if this is where architecture and interior design is heading in Israel then tasteless is a tag that won't be used for long. Thanks for the link Tali!
Bill Nicholas, Susan Budd and John Dutton are the forces behind Nicholas.Budd.Dutton, a Los Angeles-based firm that specializes in architecture, urban design and landscape. "We believe in the seemingly contradictory qualities of modesty and obsession, tradition and innovation, repose and movement, light and shadow." This firm also maintains that there's an importance in the relationship between landscape and building, which would explain the beautiful quality of light in the spaces they've designed with the innovative placement of windows.
OMG! Keep this a secret amongst yourselves. Kelley Wearstler "Imperial Trellis" on ebay.
Citrine colourway 54" wide x 84" length here.
Green colourway 54" wide x 46" length here. Just listed and still many days to go so don't get excited about the bargain basement prices. Both these pieces are quite flawed. I bid on this much better quality and much larger piece (54" wide x 150" length) a few days ago and this is how the auction ended ......
Still a great price for 4.2 yards if you knew how much this fabric sells for (and to the trade only). It wasn't me who won! Check out the rest of this seller's items. One of my new favourites. I'm going to regret telling you I just know.

Winfried Heinze is a super-talented photographer that has worked for dozens upon dozens of magazines such as Elle Decoration, Living Etc., Dwell, House & Garden and Easy Living. I love how the natural light brightens up each space and is captured perfectly with each photo.
Dreaming of a heavenly home? A little piece of paradise? How about this converted church in my home town of Brisbane? The living areas are open plan with soaring “cathedral ceilings”. Of course the kitchen is an altar to all things gastronomical. I’m not going to make any baptism jokes about the plunge pool because it’s just so perfect for our subtropical climate. Currently on the market it would be a sin not to buy. 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a cellar room for the altar wine.
