Entries in architect (1259)
Sorry folks, I didn't receive enough pets on furniture entries while I was away for a post today (you can send them to kim[@]desiretoinspire[.]net), but I do have a funky, modern 2 bedroom home that is for rent in London via Domus Nova. It is designed by architects Teatum + Teatum who believe in creating all of their properties to rent to make great architecture available to as many people as possible. By using simple and affordable materials that are available in local hardware outlets they are showing how we can make something special with a limited budget. In this home they made use of sterling board (otherwise known as OSB) which is readily available and inexpensive. That combined with concrete, metalwork and painted brick (I personally would have loved seeing more of the brick) makes for a very interesting textural eye candy.
This is any book lover's dream - tons and tons of book storage that is far from your typical row of Ikea Billy bookcases. If I had this shelving I would spend my days scouring book stores. It is the perfect excuse. By Feldman Architecture.
Block by Dylan is a lunch & brunch restaurant located in the center of Helsinki, right next to the Kauppatori market square. Designed by Suvi-Maria Silvola and Laura Seppänen, it's a cool mix of Scandinavian minimalism, vivid colour, warm wood tones and clean lined functionality. I can't believe I have another restaurant to add to my bucket list. Good design and great food gets me every time. Photography by Pauliina Salonen
