Clash crash and  colour


Brace yourself for the clash of the pattern and the knock out punch of the colours. The 60s and 70s at their not so subtle OTT best. Some are just so right and many are oh so so wrong. Once again these are scanned from that extraordinary style source Practical Decorating Ideas, Ure Smith , Sydney 1973.

Those Italians are some smart

I was perusing the website of Elle Decor Italia and I found some new photos I wanted to post, which are below, but first I have to post this one because it really caught my attention:


What fabulous organized clutter. It's like tiny little display boxes for all your favourite trinkets and papers and books. I think the shelving looks like the Ikea Billy CD tower. Since the CD towers have adjustable shelves, you could set it up to fit all sorts of sizes of items, like in the photo. Anyway, it's just a thought. Now back to the rest of the photos.

All in white


I came across the Swedish blog Purple Area and the author posted some photos from a site called Vintage by Nina. This site has some of the prettiest photos of "shabby chic" design I've ever seen. And white upon white upon white. If this doesn't invoke a huge *sigh* out of you, I don't know what will.

Susan the kitchen designer


Susan, our blog friend from The Kitchen Designer emailed Jo and I to show us another side of a typical kitchen designer. Unbeknownst to me, kitchen designers often design build-ins and furniture. She has some impressive examples in her portfolio of built-ins she's designed, and I thought I'd throw in some kitchens and bathrooms I love as well.
