DHgate has all for travelling


... and I spent all day running around oblivious to it

  • Sirocco Safari Chairs by Arne Norell. Milo Baughman Floating Cube Chairs. Deconet is a leading global marketplace focused on Modern Design and other decorative objects. Vintage objects from the best modern design sources worldwide. I've died and gone to heaven!



  • The Lovi Heart postcard by Anne Paso of Finland. Available here. Such a sweet and stylish valentine.


  • Manvi Drona-Hidalgo of one of our fav blogs Mochatini has new prints in her etsy store. So pretty.

  • Fresh and modern, pretty open line patterns, embroidery, cotton and linen. Camilla David Textiles' range of home furnishing fabrics draws on her love of florals. So pretty and bright. Just right to ring in the coming change of season. Imagine lightweight flowery drapes blowing in an spring breeze. Refreshing.

Casey Dunn

Happy Friday everyone! Today is one of my Fridays off from the day job so I am going to begin a little house project here that I've been wanting to start for months (well, in reality, since I bought this place). I'm not going to say much about it until it's done - I will say it's a small in-the-meantime project to deal with some current UGLY that I cannot live with anymore. So while I gulp down a cup of green tea I thought I would share with you all another photographer friend of Robin (yesterday was Ryann Ford) based in Austin, Texas. Introducing the stellar photography of Casey Dunn. (I am in love with the stairs in the first photo and the black tiled bathroom).



Emily Henderson

A stylist's work is never done.! Room after room, set after set for magazines, catalogues, advertisements, photo shoots of all types. No time for anything else ... except perhaps a blog, a stylish blog. This is the portfolio of Emily Henderson, stylist and flea market addict. Gorgeous don't you think? And the blog? The Brass Petal. So much to explore and enjoy.








Ryann Ford

A reader named Robin emailed us recently about some photographers based in Austin, Texas whom she knows and thought we might like to share their work with our readers. I thought I'd start with Ryann Ford, who specializes in architecture, interiors and travel. In the first three years of her career, Ryann had the best job imagineable -she lived out of her suitcase while working with Resorts and Great Hotels magazine, photographing hotels all over the world. Sounds like a dream job to me. Jealousy aside, her photography is spectacular and it seems Austin has some pretty hip and happenin' homes...(Thanks Robin!)



Design with a spine

"This single story house is located on a leafy well established street in Kyneton, Victoria. Stretching east to west across the site, the dynamic double skillion roofs provide ample northern light into every room in the house. A central spine between the two roofs splits the house into public and private functions. Years ago, the client and Marcus O’Reilly shared a furniture workshop and the pair have collaborated extensively in the past. The longstanding working relationship between the two led to a very smooth, efficient and effective construction process, where both client and Architect were consistently on the same page. The clients ease in understanding the design intent, left time to focus on more intimate detailing such as the fine tapering of the roof eaves, the pocketing doors and exterior cladding systems. The home was beautifully put together by the client, who brought his cabinet making sensibility to the intricately coordinated construction of the home." - Marcus O'Reilly Architects

"Puts the some backbone in suburbia. A stunning contemporary home with attention to detail and a killer outdoor space just perfect for the Australian lifestyle. No more ticky tacky boxes! I love the way it addresses the site and the connection between interior and exterior spaces. I also really like the volume, it's openness and the simple relationship between living, dining and kitchen. It's streamlined and crisp but the attention to detail and finish take it beyond just a generic 'open plan'. Maybe it's the wall of windows, the expanse of deck, the solid versus vast out there. Sorry I'm waffling on but it is really good. What a wonderful experience to work with such a client. Oh and I have a serious need to have that bathroom!" - Jo, Desire to Inspire
