DHgate has all for travelling


Stalking bright and white 

I'm in Paddington Sydney and I'm stalking a warehouse conversion. Bright, white, what a delight! Indoor outdoor living with a relaxed, urban cool vibe. Colour, tick. Mid-mod industrial, tick. City skyline views, tick. Party house, tick. Perfect. Just need the $2.4 million. Oh well. A girl can dream. Link here while it lasts.

The day I ran away and moved into a shop or ... Pottery Barn opens in Brisbane

Last Thursday was an exciting day. Iconic home furnishings brands Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids and West Elm opened under one enormous roof in Brisbane. "Ho-hum" yawn those of you who have lived with the Williams-Sonoma group for many years. But not for me. The new kids on the block were bringing their heady mix of unique design, exceptional customer service and their renowned in-store experiences to Bris-Vegas and I wasn't going to miss out on the media preview.

You know what? I was surprised. Not by the quality or the price point or that sales assistants are called associates but by the fact that even though I call myself Midcenturyjo it wasn't just West Elm's mid-mod urban vibe that appealed. No I was seduced by Pottery Barn too! I could move right in!

Working on a Saturday

Except I'm not. I'm tucked up in bed with a bad cold. I even had a special post planned for today but that will have to wait a few more days. I do know that if I did have to drag my sick and sorry self into work today I'd love it to be somewhere as stylin' as this workplace, Metrix Consulting by Melbourne-based interior design studio We are Huntley. What is bringing a smile to my face? A knot of cables as "art" on a vintage set of lockers. A tongue-in-cheek celebration of the problem we all have and try to ignore.

Södermalm Heights 

I have much love for the eccentricity of London design agency Minale + Mann. This project is another favourite of mine. M+M was commissioned to refurbish this dilapidated 18th century apartment in the centre of Stockholm’s Sodermalm district. The apartment was restored to its former glory, with tiled Swedish fireplaces and stunning original oil painted ceilings. Furniture was custom fitted, and the kitchen and bathrooms were finished in Swedish sand ash to enhance our eclectic mix of antiques and artwork. A 70s jukebox was even converted into a whisky bar! (Previous M+M features here and here)
