Mark Christofi

Mark Christofi has been designing interiors for over 25 years and began his own firm (Mark Christofi Interiors) in 1995. He has "a fresh style that juxtaposes traditional and classical elements with unexpected contemporary accents". Bold, a little off-the-wall whimsical and eclectic is what I make of the following photos from his portfolio...including one of the wackiest wall graphic paint techniques I've ever seen.

John Wardle

"To each project, irrespective of type, we bring an interest in the personal and collective histories of our clients, which enter into and enrich our ideas. We are committed to creating buildings that respond sustainably to their environment." Award winning Australian architectural practice John Wardle is a collaborative studio which produces diverse buildings and interior spaces. I love the use of woven cane for walls and rails and the sense of open space and voids in these designs. Oh and the cheeky splash of green inside that window.

A beautiful space

I was just perusing all my favourite blogs when I came across a beautiful photo on Mark Cutler's blog of a vanity space he designed. It's so damn pretty I had to post it. I've always wanted a little corner with a gorgeous vanity table and venetian mirror and adorable chair to sit and have a tea and put my makeup on. You outdid yourself again Mark!

Miles Redd

I happened across Miles Redd's website recently and realized, much to my astonishment, that we have never done a post on this brilliant designer. Forget brilliant, he's a design GENIUS. The KING of vignettes. I don't even know what to say....just have a look below at some of my favourite photos from his portfolio because they speak for themselves. And they speak loudly.

Pulling it together



Thought I'd show you what is going on in my new place. First let me say that the carpet is going. YUK!!!!! I have ordered a room size coir rug. Everything here is thrifted, bought on etsy, found in secondhand shops or through retro dealers except the screen which is from an interior design student exhibition from my university days. This is not how the room will look, just an idea. Wait till you see the travertine, chrome and glass coffee table I have coming. I'm going for a Wary-Meyers retro boho look with lime green, navy and a clash of chrome and gilt. I am trying to pull this all together on a strict budget and with mainly thrifted finds because a)I want to show that it can be done, b)I believe in reuse and recycling and c) I'm broke at the moment! Check out my Flickr for more explanations.

And here's what prompted me to post this now. I found this couch on Chez Fifi through a link I found on Absolutely Beautiful Things today. A red suite similar to my now navy blue suite. Small world!
