Carlton Warehouse

A house within a ruin is the premise for this new home in Carlton in inner city Melbourne. Rising from a decrepit warehouse shell, through a garden space climbing higher until, at the top, it reveals its living areas with expansive views, new spirals out of the old. The repetition of a circle is a recurring motif of the architects' recent work. Carlton Warehouse by Kennedy Nolan.

This is HOT!

OMG this U.K. apartment in a Victorian manor is HOT!!! High ceilings, period features, floor to ceiling windows the décor is a fusion of gothic, classic and contemporary design with sensual heritage colours, detailed corniche, wallpapered ceilings, tarnished metalics, animal skins and prints. Call me crazy, but I now want to go find a birdcage and some gold chain... Location space available via Shoot Factory
P.S. If you're in the Ottawa area, come down to the Bell Sensplex for the final day of the Handmade Harvest craft show. My husband has a booth (Daff Design) so I will be there hanging out with him and trying not to buy more goodies. I could not help myself today - such good stuff!

Reconnecting with Brian Paquette - part 1

It has been a little while since Jo shared some projects by Seattle interior designer Brian Paquette (here and here), and it seems he has been busy lately so I thought I would share a couple of his latest projects. This one is a home in Victoria, B.C. and has a bit of a gentlemen's club vibe going on. I dig that style for all its leather (chesterfields!) and dark colours. OH YEAH.

Abigail Ahern - Colour

Abigail Ahern has released her new book called Colour and I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy! (According to Amazon it's not available in Canada until August dammit!) She really is an inspiration to me. I love her bold style and her appreciation for the darker side of decor. The main perk of this book is that the photos are by one of our all-time favourite photographers, Graham Atkins-Hughes! This is a must-have book for sure, so order your now if it's out in your country, or pre-order it like I think I might do. Here is a little sneak peak.
