Nomad Living

I do believe I love a shipping container conversion almost as much as a church conversion. There's something about taking an empty steel box and turning it into a home, a getaway, a backyard retreat, an office, whatever and wherever you want. This one is by Portuguese architectural firm Studio ARTE as part of their Nomad Living project.

Butterfly blue

A contemporary take on a traditional kitchen with butterfly blue and hidden wood grain touches. Loads of natural light reflecting off white surfaces and then that flash of blue. Another lovely space to cook and connect with family and friends by Blakes London.

Light and dark in Copenhagen

This beautiful home was recently featured in Nuevo Estilo, a perfect blend of light and dark (although I personally would add a bit more dark). Built in 1898 and located on the outskirts of Copenhagen, it is home to Sofie and Frank Christensen Egelund and their 4 children. (You will notice several Vipp pedal bins around - Sofie currently runs the company that her grandfather created). I love the shocking contrast of the dark kitchen - what a gorgeous colour.

Stalking leftovers

Wedding season is in full swing here in Australia and seeing that my new career incarnation involves catering and events then guess what I'll be doing this afternoon and into the evening? Working. Still hasn't stopped me stalking this week. Here are the leftovers. The ones that didn't make the cut. Call me particular, finicky, choosy and hard to please. Not quite right, bad photos, I need more photos please, house is amazing furniture is deplorable or even fab furniture shabby shell. Can't quite put my finger on it listings with something that has me nodding "yes". This week's finds include an old rectory with a stunning garden, a classic example of the Sydney School style of architecture and a converted dairy in inner city Melbourne.
