Design2Share


Brad sent us a link to Design2Share. This new site offers weekly a video podcast series that takes a good stab at answering viewers' design-related questions. The two co-hosts, South African born designer Irwin Weiner and British born designer Nicola Chernicoff have covered topics such as how to get a great look and how to set a great table. Looking forward to their "Where you live" posts which should be coming soon. In the meantime here are a few of Irwin's sophisticated rooms.

Thanks Nick!!!

Nick Olsen from Domino's Daily Dose gave us a great shout out. Sounds like he's just as hooked on desire to inspire as we are. If you're here because of Nick's lovely post then welcome. Make yourself a cup of tea and settle in to browse through our archives. Hope you enjoy our blog as much as we enjoy finding all these great rooms for you.


P.S.Just a little taste of Nick's own place from Domino Magazine.

Leah's project(s)

We received an email from fellow blogger Leah to tell us about her blog england construction project that chronicles her and her husband's new house being built and their (her? LOL) decor decisions. From what I can see it's going to be a gorgeous home!


I also couldn't help notice her other blog called lowcountry dog blog created to plug her dog magazine Lowcountry Dog. Here are some photos from the newest issue. (So adorable!!!)

So hip it hurts.

Very early on in the life of desire to inspire we received an email from Lorenzo telling us how much he loved the site and did we want to swap links. One look at his wonderful apartment and the blog that chronicles it and he was on the blog roll. I thought at first that Lorenzo and his girlfriend had to be designers. No they're in the arts and hail from Firenze my favourite Italian city. Their recently restored flat is stark white except for the pink quartz and resin floors and amazing original 50s windows. All of this is just the stage for their stellar collection of design classics. All the greats are here - Panton, Ettore Sottsass, Saarinen, Achille Castiglioni the list goes on. Lorenzo just sent me some new pictures. Their apartment is so hip it hurts! For details on their amazing collection check out their blog HipHouse.

Urban Prairie

Chris Brown is the genius behind Urban Prairie. A man with a finely tuned eye for the found and forlorn, Chris' edgy out of the box country style is inspiring the next generation of "found" collectors. Probably the funkiest looking site I've seen in ages. Chris says, “I’ve found that the people that are drawn to my style, my design sense are more than just collectors. They are people who want to live a simple life with things they love around them - in an interesting way.” Don't miss his blog Urban Prairie Refueled or his profiles of other collectors and interview with D'Ette Cole.

All images from Urban Prairie website. The ones marked Marfa Texas are from the Marfa Installation by the fabulous D'Ette Cole who was featured here.
