Fishbowl

In keeping with my workspace theme of the day, this wallpaper is hilarious used in a little nook. Would you really want to feel like you were in a fishbowl if you were relegated to working in such a small space?

Reader request - double desks

Today's reader request is from logsy: I recently discovered your blog (love it) and found myself wading through the first 100 pages in one sitting. Throughout this I saw a double desk (two chairs, two computers, side by side) and forgot to save the picture for inspiration. I now can't find the page it was on. With this in mind, I was wondering if you'd consider doing a blog post on double desks? Here you go logsy, some side by side desks and a few that are different options for 2-for-1 workspaces.

James Knowler

Dear Mr Knowler,

Your website says that you take photographs. That may be but I think there may be just a little bit more to what you do. May I explain? You tell stories, build dreams, capture memories and sell product. You manipulate light, cox colour and crop angles. Composition isn't just about essays or music is it? Dear James Knowler I think you are my new photographer crush.

Love? Hate?

I have had this apartment stored in my "blog this" folder for ages and for some reason haven't bothered blogging it yet. When I found it last night I could not figure out if I love it or hate it. A bit too modern? Maybe. I don't know how annoying it would be to have your living room facing the kitchen lengthwise like that. Some of the furniture, accessories and artwork is really not doing anything for me. The wraparound curtains in the bedroom (and a bit in the living room) are driving me insane. So are all those odd little rectangular potlights. I do love the kitchen (where's the fridge??), the bathroom, the fireplace, the hardwood floors, the GLASS! FLOOR!, the staircase, and the soaring ceilings. (Via Per Jansson Fastighetsförmedling AB)

The writing's on the wall

Salad sandwiches and real estate stalking for lunch today. I wish I had lived in a place as indie cool as this when I was younger. A great mix of classic mid century hip and an irreverent DIY approach. Don't be fooled though. It's  not a student house. The artwork and the prize retro pieces (like the atomica coffee machine) mean big bucks or savy shopping. Today's house is in one of my favourite parts of Sydney, Redfern. It will of course sell for an obscene amount then be renovated into a sterile "contemporary meets heritage" montage  of big box catalogues and high end fittings. It has real estate "potential" written all over those walls. Shame. I kinda like it's funky probably soon to be former self. Link here while it lasts.
