Black and white 

I bought a few Spanish decor magazines while on holidays (I had to leave them behind because my suitcase was overweight dammit!) and this eye-popping apartment was featured in one of them. It is located in Milan, in a building designed by noted Italian architect Giò Ponti, and is the home of Italian interior designer Barbara Falanga. This bold, graphic apartment is all about black and white, with retro furnishings from the 30s to the 70s. Glam with edge. Not for the timid!

A dreamy home

WOW do I ever love this home! Rustic barn-look on the outside, soaring beamed ceilings on the inside in my favourite colour palette of black, white and browns, featuring a modern vibe mixed with global treasures. It's pretty much perfection. I'd even take the gorgeous dog. This is the home of cinematographer Darius Wolski photographed by Martin Löf.

A blog of note

It's been an awesome yet crappy last few days. My stray cat Agnes went to her new home Friday night and she's doing well so far, and I developed a really bad flu but I have a bunch of blog posts to get done for while I'm away in Mexico (I leave next Sunday). Unfortunately I didn't have much time to get a post ready for today so I thought I would simply share some photos from one of my favourite blogs for some time now, Ollie & Seb's Haus. The blog belongs to Deborah, who lives in Glasgow with her husband and 2 kids (whom the blog is named after). She has a background in interior design and visual merchandising/styling which is not a surprise given how amazing the photos of her home are (she's a talented photographer to boot!). Here are some of my favourites.

space grace & style

"... a love of all things traditional, vintage, ambiguous and unusual - the studio excels in the unconventional juxtaposition ..." Personality, a touch of whimsy, old with new. Bold colour plays against warm wood floors and bright light floods in through windows. Welcome to the Newtown, Victoria home of interior designer Rebecca Jansma of Space Grace & Style.

Photography by Nikole Ramsay and styling by Stephanie Somebody.

Holiday chaos

As usual, I waited until the last minute to get myself organized for the holidays. I blame it on having 2 jobs and too many cats. :) And OMG this is the worst time of year when you've got nosy cats and no place to store wrapped presents out of reach. I spent about 4 hours yesterday wrapping presents and then we created a mountain of them by the front door so I can take the lot to my parents' house tomorrow to stash until the big day. I caught 2 cats on the pile within 5 minutes. AAAGGGHHHH!!!!! Needless to say I am so freaking busy so I whipped up this post really quick. I love this home. It is located in Piacenza, Italy, and is a fabulously modern without being too cold. There is some bold colour here and there to keep it from being too stark, some REALLY amazing tiles in the kitchen for a serious jolt of pattern, some walls clad in the same hardwood as the floor to warm the space, and some to-die-for lighting (I have always wanted one of those Flos Parentesi suspension lamps!). I'm not a fan of the bedroom or grey bathroom though but the rest makes up for these. Via Le case di Elixìr
