Adriana Barra is one of the foremost fashion designers in Brasil. Each year as she releases her collection she restyles her atelier in the neighbourhood of Jardins in Sao Paulo. Her designs have translated to other areas such as homewares. Great shop, great ideas and amazing website.

Retro yellow

I bought a great book today from my friend's retro store. I'm a sucker for 60s and 70s interior books. "How to Make your Windows Beautiful" A Kirsch Publication Vol IV 1972. Seeing that yellow has been a favourite around here I thought I'd share a few images from this treasure.

If you really really need a copy there is one here.

My newly redone goth/glam bathroom

I am pretty excited to finally have this project finished. My bathroom is the last of the 2.5 bathrooms in this house to be redone. It still needs new flooring but so do the other bathrooms so that's a project for another time. We're not planning on keeping this house for very long so we can't do too much to the house without thinking of resale but I had to go a little nuts somewhere - and it might as well be my bathroom. This cost about $650 - that's for the sink, faucet, knobs, light fixture, paint, accessories, art, molding around art, mirror, shower curtain...etc. I'm curious to hear your comments.

Todd Oldham


Todd Oldham is a busy guy. I came across his website Todd Oldham Studio and learned that not only is he an interior designer but he also does photography, graphic design, product design and film/tv/video. I've always admired his work, particularly his bold use of colour. These are my favourite photos from his portfolio.

OMG! These are some talented and innovative folks let me tell ya. Based in Singapore, Ministry of Design's mission is to "disturb, question and redefine the fundamental elements of Space, Ritual & Perception". The following photos are from a hotel, apartment and boutique they designed.
