New York photographer Tria Giovan's portfolio is chock full of photographic wonderment. I typically prefer photos with more contrast, but the spaces and vignettes are so simple yet stunning that I got over that pretty quick. Love the little window seat, the small window in the blue and white bedroom, and how cute that the antique coffee table has children's drawings on it.
Simplicity is calling me. A life stripped of frou frou and excessive trinkets. A neutral colour palette with texture for interest. Clean lines and .... a kick ass harbour view. Built in 1888 the Station Master's House is a Sydney icon. Recently sold at auction it confirms for me that life should be simple but fabulous. I love that these owners did not compete with what has to be one of the most amazing views of the harbour I have seen. I shudder to think what the price was. Link here while it lasts.
We've got a new sponsor in the house that I'd like to welcome to the DTI fandamily. Kristen has an online shop called Kir DeVries, that sells all sorts of yummy items. I don't even know where to begin. There are some really fun desk accessories, insulated lunch totes (I sooooo want and need one), jewelery, reusable shopping bags (sooooo want and need some of these too), notebooks, wall decals, mobiles, reversible aprons, lunch boxes (too cute), etc. etc. Below are some that caught my eye. Oh, and folks, she ships internationally!!! (Click on an item to take you to its location in her store).
Clever. Yes clever, clever, clever. 212box not only design good looking spaces (and can turn their hand to a number of styles) but they have a talent for spatial solutions and storage. Visit the website and work your way through the images and all will be revealed. That cosy nook above? It's crammed with clever extra sleeping. Love a clean lined kitchen but can't get enough gadgets? Plenty of inspiration here.
