Slice of heaven

Dreaming of a heavenly home? A little piece of paradise? How about this converted church in my home town of Brisbane? The living areas are open plan with soaring “cathedral ceilings”. Of course the kitchen is an altar to all things gastronomical. I’m not going to make any baptism jokes about the plunge pool because it’s just so perfect for our subtropical climate. Currently on the market it would be a sin not to buy. 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a cellar room for the altar wine.

The Lawrence Group

The Lawrence Group is an architectural, interior design and town planning firm based in St. Louis. Their work is impressive, particularly the bathroom and two residences featured below. I love the tile in the bathroom, the industrial kitchen (with more gorgeous tile) and the retro yellow chair.


Wahoo! Retro time!

This week's retro treats are from Better Homes Decorating Ideas, Ruth Quatermaine, Meridith Publishing Company, 1967. My scanner has been running hot. True 60s inspiration or desperation. Love it or hate here's your retro therapy.


Jonn Coolidge

With his roots in graphic design photographer Jonn Coolidge has the perfect eye for interior photography. With clients from Lee Jofa to B&B Italia, Trina Turk to Neiman Marcus and all the major shelter magazines from Elle Decor to House and Garden his portfolio is stellar. In his fine art work he dissects the simple and looks for another truth. The same searching is evident in his editorial work. Great stuff!
