I got the stalkin' blues ...


Why oh why are all the wonderful homes I want when I stalk always so out of my price range? Thankfully this warehouse conversion is in a completely different city (Melbourne) so I couldn't buy it even if I could afford it. $1 million as a price guide. Oh I hope the real estate bubble bursts here! Love this place though. The thought of a zen white courtyard with a lone birch gives me shivers. Here while the link lasts.

Styleroom

Two years ago Johan Arvidson started a site called Styleroom where Swedes upload photos from their homes and share with others. They now have over 100,000 photos and have recently started sites in the US, the UKand Germany. TONS of inspiration and creativity...and below are a few photos I selected that caught my eye.

Trevor Tondro


What do you get when you cross a talented artist with an urban designer? What do you get when you mix an inquisitive mind with a camera? You get the portfolio of Brooklyn photographer Trevor Tondro. He describes his photos as quiet observations of how people inhabit space. I call them not only insightful but beautiful.

Today I'm loving .....


... the fact that I met a wonderful woman two and a half years ago and decided to go on a whirlwind blogging trip with her. Today is Kim's birthday (and her twin sister Julia's as well .... of course). Happy Birthday sweetie! Wish I could bake you a cake but it would never get to the other side of the world in time.

(The photo above is one of our favourites taken by photographer Mark Lund.)

M.J. Lanphier

Matthew J. Lanphier designs spaces that are confident, contemporary and comfortable. Graphic elements and bold accent colours that flow with ease. Mid-century cool mixes with Hollywood Regency glam. Love the energy, and I'm so pleased M.J. emailed us about his work so we could share it with all of you.
