WINKS

... my next project

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?

  

  • Wire art installation at the Bay, Toronto. Botanticals and butterflies break from their wire whirlwind and bring a smile with their whimsy and wonder. Imagine these floating across your ceiling. Beautiful work from Toronto interior designer and artist Teresa Leung.

 

  

  • Weaving a magic of a different kind with a different material is Australian Darcy Clarke. Fluid shapes and scattering light and shadow. Earthy, tactile pieces that delight the eye with their organic shapes. Rough meets smooth, handmade meets modern design, old meets new. I need some of these in my life.

  • Photographer Anna Williams has shot for Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, O Magazine. Her portfolio is full of inspiring interiors, luscious food, exotic destinations and beautiful people. (See our post on Anna here.) But Anna takes her work further in an ongoing essay exploring hunger, consumption and beauty. These stunning images are just a taste of what awaits you at the latest issue of The Voracity - A Princely Feast.

  

  • Tactile and sexy. Sleek and curvaceous. Sculptural furniture by Robert Austin Gonzalez, part of the Grace collection. I just want to polish these beautiful pieces over and over. Sensual, dare I say erotic? Love.

du côté de chez vous

TGIF folks!!! Hope you all have a much more interesting weekend planned than I do. Mine involves some drywall sanding, painting, selling some of my junk, and helping Jeff begin the move of his crap stuff into my house. (I have already threatened him that he had better take the time and go through all his stuff and GET RID of what is garbage and useless because there is NO ROOM in my house!) You know how guys move though, tip a drawer into a box and VOILA! Chicks love that. Anyhoo, I leave you with some more fantabulous photos from my new favourite site, du côté de chez vous.

Damian Russell encore

End the week with bang ... actually an encore performance from photographer Damian Russell. Light, colour, drama, wow factor. I've laxed lyrical over Damian's work before but I can't help myself. I needed more and there is ... after the jump.

When you're horrified by white (and a bonus)

Nathalie is horrified by white. So naturally she gravitates towards colour. And she's not afraid to use it....all over her apartment. In wacky and wonderful ways. (And after the jump is a genius small space solution).

Reader's home

Today I wanted to share with you all a little glimpse into the home of Spanish artist Javier Requejo Fernández. Javier lives in Galicia in the north of Spain and creates sculptures out of wire. His designs are so creative and beautiful (check them out on his website). His house is simple and beautiful as well, with many of his scupltures as decor. (Thank you for sharing your home with us Javier!)
