Kristin Perers and the beauty that is 50

Why is Jo Bibby the first photo on my post today? The founding partner and designer at Ochre is just one of the inspiring women photographed and interviewed by Kristin Perers for her blog this is 50.

"As a designer, stylist and more recently a photographer I’ve spent my career trying to create beautiful things. Now I realise it’s not about fashioning beauty but finding it. And finding it in the everyday things around me. When I look now at women in their 50s I see so much beauty. And I want to know their story."

As a woman also in her 50s and just about to embark on a new career journey Kristin's blog could not have tumbled into my lap at a better time. Inspiration, beautiful women, beautiful photos. And just because I can I've included just a few of my favourite images from Kristin's interiors portfolio.

Gisele Taranto

I've been hooked lately on discovering cool designers and architects from Brazil - there is so much inspiring Brazilian talent in these fields! Another I discovered recently is architect Gisele Taranto. Her portfolio features several contemporary spaces that are creative in their execution and takes advantage of the beauty outdoors which I think is absolutely necessary in a country that is so freaking beautiful.

Stalking two

Just a short hop away from my last post and I'm taking a virtual tour of an apartment in a warehouse conversion in Fitzroy North. Historic facade and modern interiors with tall walls of glass to take in the inner city views. Love the winding stairs climbing to the top floor where the current owners have created a wonderful office space. What a great space to work. Which one does it for you? Factory pad number one or warehouse apartment number two? Link here while it lasts.

Stalking one

Got my checklist for today's real estate stalking. Apartment in an old textile factory. Tick. Saw-tooth roof line. Tick. Large metal framed windows. Tick. Inner city Melbourne, Fitzroy to be precise. Tick. Red brick. Double tick. Think my factory conversion wish list is complete. If the owners throw in the hanging garden of string and moss wrapped plants then I might just sign on the dotted line. I'm stalking the first of two industrial style apartments. Link here while it lasts.

P.S. If you are looking for moss ball plants in Australia then try Mister Moss. Mine was a Christmas gift and it is still going strong.
