Rove Concepts


David Howell


David Howell moved to New York after a successful career in New Zealand. His work is clean, crisp and organic, edited but artistic. The spaces are ultra-stylish and modern but liveable. Ask him how he describes his style and he says, "Opulent urbanity."




Thrifted finds in their homes

Thought you might like to have a peek at where I put all the items I found while thrifting yesterday. (I need to pick up more black spray paint - you can make anything look good with that stuff).

Art by Ricki Mountain

Ricki Mountain is a very talented artist. She emailed asking if she could add us to her bloglist and after taking a peek at her work, I just had to post it. Her art is sooooo pretty, and I am drawn to the brilliant colours she uses. Here's a sample of her giclees, that you can find at her Etsy shop and on her blog.


Mademoiselle Helenina

Helene Deroubaix of The Fairy Attic sent an email to introduce us to her gorgeous artwork. She is a mixed media artist and poetic writer and combines both of these talents in her art, creating nostalgic visual poetry that I think is adorable. She has photos up on Flickr as well so have a look. Here are some of my favourites.


Another fruitful Saturday

I got a call this morning from my folks (and grandmother who's here visiting) to tell me that they were 10 minutes from my house and heading out antiquing and asked if I wanted to tag along. UH......YEAH! To top it off, they were going to the same place where I scored most of my finds the last time. And OH MY, did I score again. It's kind of dark and cloudy outside so I'll take the evening to clean things up and post more photos tomorrow of everything in their new homes. Here's a preview.

Thought I would save the best for last...

But sadly, this is what it looked like 5 minutes after I got it in the door...
