The Trunk

Hello Kim,

I'm sending pictures of a new product, which is hand-made in Europe by Malafor Small Laboratory of Forms. They are available exclusively through our company from April 2007. Those logs can be used as seating logs, as side tables or pair them together and then use them as a great coffee table. Right now I have a promotional sale.

Thanks Gosia. These are amazing. I'd love to see them in a minimalist woodland room or at the other extreme a pimped Louis XVI chair in black shiny vinyl, a clash of chrome and gilt accessories and these as occasional tables. Swing a aventurine murano glass chandelier over the top and start layering the clashing black and white patterns. What about you Kim? What's your room going to look like?

PS Kim is on the way to work and loved these so much she emailed me to post them. Gosia can be contacted at bluebellgk{at}yahoo{dot}com


Stairs and storage

What a great idea. If you’re having some stairs constructed why not consider this. Handy and hidden, a great storage idea for linen, winter woollies, books and papers, anything small in fact.

P.S. These amazing stairs have travelled all over the blogosphere in a few short weeks. This is a scanned image from the Vogue Living Australia Before+After Autumn/Winter 2007 issue. The true originator of this staircase, the joinery company is named in the comments. If you're in Australia and want one of these then google their name and their address and phone number are yours.


Outdoor rooms

Whether it's a patio or a courtyard, a veranda or a cabana, a balcony or deck, a loggia or just a patch of grass extend your living area outside. Go alfresco with these ideas and reclaim that porch.

I love this apartment

The latest Australian Vogue Living features Antony Todd's New York apartment. We've had a sneak peek at Antony's apartment before when we featured his interiors in an earlier post. Sexy and sophisticated but with a casual elegance. You could curl up on the bed or wander barefoot through the salon and feel at home. Love this apartment.

Kevin Haley

"I want to create spaces of tranquility - sanctuaries, places where people feel safe so they can create and be at their best."

I found the website of Kevin Haley and was awestruck. His style is totally up my alley, modern and eclectic. He must be good...he's designed residences for Cameron Diaz, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. (He won me over with the pug photo).
