Behind the blue door

Stalking again. Wouldn't you think that now that I have found a house to buy that I'd stop lurking on real estate sites? Never! So what is hiding behind this seemingly simple Victorian facade? A stylish contemporary family home. What else would you expect! Link here while it lasts.

Flickr finds - modern living interiors

I spent 14 hours on the road yesterday driving back from Prince Edward Island, and since I had nothing ready to post today, I just zipped through the Flickr group modern living interiors and snagged some photos of people's personal spaces that I like. Enjoy.

WINKS

... is it that time again?!!!

WINKS - weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we've found and things we think you'll want to see. If you'd like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we'll link you. So what's in this week?

  

  

  • How cool is the Runner Table from Duffy London? Thin steel legs combine with a substantial walnut table top.  Deceptively weightless it appears to float. Love the crisp modern lines. Launching at London Design Week 2010.

  • Reinterpreting the usually conventional camel back sofa is the Moreau by PINCH. Seriously sexy!!! Actually there's not a thing on PINCH's website that I don't love.

  

  • This is the NOOK stool by the German company VIAL. Designed by Patrick Frey it combines straight lines with soft and symmetrically arranged curves. I'm loving its sculptural feel. Indoors or out.

  

  • Time for some "save-the-dates". First up Sibella Court is having her next flea market at her wonderland of a store The Society Inc September 4th. The last one looked a treat! No fair I don't live in Sydney. If you do then this is a must, must, must. 18 Stewart Street, Paddington, NSW - 8am till 12pm.

  • Also not fair that I don't live in Sydney is the Signature Prints Florence Broadhurst sale. SALE: Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th September 10am - 5pm Unit 2/3 Hayes Road, Rosebery, NSW. The fabric! The wallpaper! The offcuts!!!! If Ms Broadhurst's designs make you quiver then this sale is not to be missed.

Another project by Charles de Lisle

Not too long ago I blogged about a mid-century style California ranch designed by Charles de Lisle. I find his work and the photographs in his portfolio so impressive and since I'm taking a lazy holiday week here on the blog while gallavanting around Prince Edward Island, I thought I'd feature another of his projects. This time a mountain retreat in Montana. I wouldn't mind a little vacation here either.

Justine Hugh-Jones

It's a mix of contemporary, antique and custom that interior designer Justine Hugh-Jones brings to her work. Layering texture on texture in her mainly monochromatic rooms hers is an easy elegant style. It's a refined Australian style but via France, Belgium and Scandinavia as Justine studied and worked in Europe before moving to Australia more than a decade ago. In this time Justine has really embraced a casual style that embraces the Australian light and the open plan living common here. I really love her bathrooms. I'm saving these in my inspiration file. (I just wish that the images on her website were bigger ... I need to drink in the detail.)
