Pia Bijkerk


Pia Bijkerk is an Australian stylist/photographer/writer who emailed to share her website. "I am in Paris working on interior projects for Paris clients as well as working on the makings of my first book. I work between Paris, Amsterdam and Sydney, juggling (or continually working on a balance as I like to tell myself!) between magazine, advertising and interior projects." Pia's worked for Marie Claire, Real Simple, Vogue Entertaining + Travel to name drop just a few. Beautiful website, great work and cute "definition" on the front page. We just had to share her work with you.

SPG Architects


SPG Architects, based out of New York, is a twelve-person team of super-talented individuals. This firm has been awarded and published numerous times, and their design philosophy speaks volumes: "The designs are defined not by the 'minimalist' inclination to eliminate visible function from space, nor by the desire to expose the workings of a building. SPG's work clearly presents a visual consistency based on human proportions, the exploitation of light, and the judicious use of materials that provide singular tactile and visual experiences".

Zebra rug

My love for zebra rugs has existed for some time now, as I mentionned in a previous post. I'm talking FAUX zebra. Real zebra would be VERY WRONG. I have never owned a zebra rug but would so love to get my hands on one (or three). I love anything graphic and black/white is my favourite colour combination so zebra rugs are right up my alley. Here are spaces that...*sigh*...include a lovely zebra rug.

This photo I had to include because the rug, while not zebra, is incredible in this space.

Private oasis


Another beauty for sale in my home town. Unimposing from the street it has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, pool, spa and water features galore. There is a snag. It's for sale by negotiation. Sure sign that it's way out of my league.
