Reader requests - bathrooms with colour 

This request comes from Becky: "I need some help revamping my bathroom. Right now its a soft gray and I'm kind of tired of it, kind of blah. So I'm wondering if you have any inspiration for color in a bathroom? My bathroom is a medium size with a claw foot tub and white subway tile in the shower, dark stained vanity with Carrera Marble top, so a bit old fashioned however I am a lover of vintage modern so if you have any bathrooms that might meld the 2 styles I would be eternally grateful!" Now I have quite a few bathroom photos stashed away but to find some that were colourful, with traditional and vintage modern styles mized together etc etc was not bloody likely. So instead I decided to select some photos of colourful bathrooms that I think could work with Becky's existing features (well, I think any colours would work) and I included a few with wallpaper because that could be really fun (not to install but to enjoy afterwards - LOL).

Justin Bernhaut again

I'll admit to crushing on photographer Justin Bernhaut since his photos graced the pages of just about every issue of Domino magazine. I featured him once a while back, and was pleased to see many more uplifting, bright, perfectly composed and simply beautiful photos on his website.

Stalking in Vaucluse

Stalking down by Parsley Bay Reserve ... reserve is right ... the reserve of the rich. Is the lottery $20 million in Australia this Saturday or next? Only way I could ever afford this place. Beautiful outlook and a stylish masculine feel. Bold and strong just like I like my modern architecture down by Parsley Bay Reserve. Cool cubes harbour side. Link here while it lasts. P.S. If I sound if I'm rambling I am. I came home to find four of the sexiest retro chairs imaginable at me front door. Must take photos to share! Photos on my page .

Yet more Lucas Allen and some wedding goodies

I seem to have a bit of a stalker crush on Australian photographer Lucas Allen, as I've blogged his work in 2007, 2008 and again today. I've been a huge fan of his work for quite a while, and figured it was about time for round 3. Plus, I spent all day yesterday uploading photos to Flickr that we got back from our wedding photographer (I also tweaked some that my inlaws had taken, and put up a post of my favourite ones on "kim's page"), so I didn't really have time to go poking around for someone new to blog about. Might I also mention how bummed I am that Labour Day weekend, the last long weekend of the summer, is over and winter is right around the corner. UGH!!!
