Retro Kids' rooms

"Children love exuberant, often vividly-bold colors and color combinations, so plan a room with a more dazzlingcolor scheme than you might give yourself....." Words of wisdom from "Practical Decorating Ideas", Ure Smith - Sydney, 1973. If you can find it buy it! More photos are definitely coming from this retro treasure.

Love this renovation

Behind an Edwardian facade in Richmond, Melbourne Architects EAT have designed this extraordinary renovation and extension. The design is sophisticated yet minimal reflecting a contemporary lifestyle. Light filters through strip glazing in the ceiling while black gloss floors anchor the white Edwardian jewel box. Hard concrete finishes mark the transition to the new. Love this space. Love the filmy black drapes as room divider. Love.

Fresh out of my inbox

I came home from a boring day at work to find an email from Greg Natale, our fav designer, in my inbox. Here's what he had to say to go along with the totally breath-taking photos he included.
"This is one of my favorite projects. This house was designed for a couple with 4 children. Each room is themed a different colour and Florence Broadhurst pattern to reflect its use or user. We wanted this house to be full of personality. We mixed organic and geometric print with modern, retro and repro furniture to produce a result that is an interesting mix of opposites."
OMG!!! Greg - these rooms are utterly fabulous. The patterns, the colours... you are a genius. (And keep the photos coming!!!!)

My love for teak credenzas


I absolutely adore teak credenzas (or credenzas that are made of teak-like wood). I have one in my living room (see photo above), a small one in my front hall and a teak-laminate dresser in my library. My parents have 2 and a dining set they are soon wanting to get rid off...now where can I fit.... Anyway, I found some photos of teak and teakish (or at least retro style) credenzas for your viewing pleasure.
