Kitchen love

There is nothing better than a well designed kitchen except a well designed kitchen that is as beautiful as it is practical. I'm in love with the colour of the cabinets, the floor, the light spilling in through the windows, the lovely old chairs and the sitting area by the fire ... on and on the list could go. A definite case of kitchen love. By San Francisco-based design firm Jute.

When eclectic is hot

This is a prime example of eclectic décor that is totally random yet perfectly executed to create chic, sexy rooms. This Madrid apartment was featured in the latest issue of Nuevo Estilo (AGH I could not find this mag while I was in Puerto Vallarta!) and was designed by Isabel López-Quesada. This talented lady does not follow rules and trends, and I admire her for that. The dining room above is my favourite space - SO HOT!!! (Check out Jo's past features of Isabel's work here, here and here)

Saturday night

Saturday night. What to do, where to go. Grab your coat and your appetite and meet me at Transformer Fitzroy, Melbourne by Breathe Architecture. Love the inner city industrial meets greenhouse trellis vibe of this former electrical transformer warehouse now vegetarian restaurant. Exposed brick, board formed concrete and chainlink fencing softened by pools of light and tumbling vines.

Antique portraits in unexpected spaces

The Village

LUZIO

One thing I have loved for as long as I can remember are very old antique portraits in gilded frames used in not-so-traditional spaces. Here are 2 random photos I came across recently where these portraits are hanging in very unexpected spaces, and they look fantastic in both.
