I love this apartment

I recently posted about Christopher Coleman. This is his apartment. Graphic, layered, lush and quirky. Great ideas for a small space. Black has never looked so good. That striped shelving unit is a Lack bookcase and some coloured tape! And what about those metal ball curtains.

NYSD is a great source of beautiful images of the homes of NY designers and social doyennes. If you have the time their house archives are amazing. Oh how the other half lives.

Leah's project(s)

We received an email from fellow blogger Leah to tell us about her blog england construction project that chronicles her and her husband's new house being built and their (her? LOL) decor decisions. From what I can see it's going to be a gorgeous home!


I also couldn't help notice her other blog called lowcountry dog blog created to plug her dog magazine Lowcountry Dog. Here are some photos from the newest issue. (So adorable!!!)

New Ikea site

Jo and I received an email today from David Farrer Faz about Be Brave, not Beige, a microsite created for Ikea. There's some hilarious videos of people dancing and a beige room that you can customize with some Ikea textiles (example I did below). "This campaign is a rallying cry to everyone who is tired of the bland beigeness which has taken over their homes in recent years. Enough of this tyranny of the middle-of-the-road, our houses should be bold, vibrant and individual."

Passionate for pink

I am still in love with the colour pink so I gathered some photos of rooms that use this colour for those of you who share my passion for pink.

Favourite things

The cardscape mail organiser.This is such a cool idea. Great for keeping those bits of paper tidy and looks stylish as well, full or empty. Designed by architect Eduardo Rosa and illustrator Aude Van Ryn the base is a vehicle air filter. Four specially designed cards slot in as well as eight metal clips creating a myriad of urban scapes. Snap, slot, mix. Fun!
