But it's time for a change and so this will be the beginnings of many new projects and I can't wait! I'm being a bit cryptic but you'll hear more in the near future. I have to run (it's going to be an unbelieveably hectic few weeks - at my day job too so really bad timing - so please bear with me) but I wanted to share some photos of a really cool studio in a converted factory in Barcelona.

White on white

Clinton and Diana Grobler of Cape Town, South Africa architecture firm Grobler Architects did quite a number on the cottage. Unfortunately there are no before photos on their website but WOW after some renovating and additions this house is gorgeous! All of the white makes it so calm and fresh. And I really love the kitchen - very cool idea to make everything on the back wall black and the island all white.
