Michael Partenio

I am sitting here thinking of something all creative to say about the absolutely gorgeous photography of Michael Partenio but I can't think straight with the pain and exhaustion I am feeling after shoveling for a solid hour (and not even finishing). I guess winter has arrived...all at once. Instead, I leave you with the following photos that really don't need much of an introduction. They are mesmerizing. I can't decide which of the 3 beds I want to sink into right about now.

Mikael Beckman

   

Not hard to see why Mikael Beckman is one of Sweden's leading stylists. It's great to see a masculine take on the Swedish vibe but still the core ingrtedients are there - white, bright, comfortable and stylish, a touch of vintage, lashings of midcentury classic pieces, an easy confidence. How about that red kitchen? Not for the shrinking violets! Love the recessed display with lighting. Might have to steal that idea.

Oitoemponto

A reader named Pedro emailed us recently with a link to his favourite interior design duo. Oitoemponto is a firm based in Portugal created by Artur Miranda (who formerly had a career in the fashion world) and a couple years later was joined by Parisian Jacques Bec. Their work is bold and full of striking elements. These guys are gutsy, and can deck out a room in hollywood regency or mid-century modern styles fabulously. Thanks Pedro!!

A little mid week stalking

Can't keep me away from stalking. I love looking inside people's homes and real estate websites are my second home. I'm loving the casual vintage vibe of this South Yarra, Melbourne home. The hallway with the "bad" landscape art and deco mirror, the pairs of shoe lasts marching done the wall on the stair landing, the lovely little courtyard. I could move in, unpack just a few boxes of my possessions and call it home. Here while the link lasts.
