Guy Mendlin is a photographer in Tel-Aviv who has quite a diverse portfolio. When he opened his own studio in 1997, he began concentrating on still-life and fashion photography, then turned to lifestyle and portraits. He also has done some work shooting interiors, which he also excels at, with perfect lighting and crispness. Lovely!


Bedroom inspiration

Lately I've been pondering what to do with my bedroom. My last chocolate brown bedroom got a pretty good response but I'm ready for a change (frankly, I'm always ready for change) and my new bedroom is significantly smaller and in need of a lighter/brighter scheme. To get my creative juices flowing for yet another room redo, I thought I'd post some photos of bedrooms that caught my eye for one reason or another.

The great escape on the Great Ocean Road

What a day at work! I'm exhausted. I think I need a long weekend in a secluded yet stunning spot. Moonlight Head Lodge on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia is a private lodge with 4 suites, designed by Glenn Murcutt and Wendy Lewin. In such a beautiful place the noise and hassles of the city become a distant memory. Ah a weekend to relax, to unwind, reflect, and enjoy the company of good friends. Apparently the expert chefs on hand will prepare whatever we desire all washed down with a hand picked selection of local and international wines. I'm in and there's room for a few more. I know it's short notice but who else can make it?

Art by Cristina

Cristina, from Modena, Italy emailed us about her new Etsy store, maiacrippichicca, and her paintings are so pretty that I thought I'd share a few with you and hopefully help her get her store off the ground. Plus, I have a thing for art featuring women so I'm REALLY loving her store, and how captivating each piece is. You've got to go have a look. Thanks Cristina!
