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.
The other day I received an email from Jordi Vayreda introducing me to his design studio in Catalonia, Spain. A boutique team of 5 designers create commercial and residential work as well as industrial design. I've mainly featured their domestic work here but check out their amazing shop fit outs. Jordi says that each project is unique as they don't like to repeat their designs as they adapt to each clients needs. The studio has collaborated with companies such as Coinma in Spain and Sipam in Italy. Exciting times are ahead for Jordi Vareyda as the studio prepares to launch their own line. Good luck guys! Awesome talent!

Betty Wasserman is about modernism and minimalism, with art playing a primary role. While focusing on design, she actually represents the work of over thirty artists, and has her own line of furniture. Seems she has all of her bases covered. Note the phenomenal lighting in the following photos.
