Inspiration for my new house

Boy do I have decorating on the brain these days! Now that we are settled in our new house (in case you missed my posts here and here earlier this week) all I can think about is what in the hell I am going to do with this blank canvas. For the past few years I have been really excited about Scandi/industrial/modern spaces in white/grey/black and lots of wood. The more time I spend in my new house, the more I realize that I have to completely re-think how I am going to decorate. This has thrown me for a loop and while it freaked me out a bit in the beginning, is starting to become more exciting and less of a daunting task. One thing I cannot get out of my head is how beautiful dark and dramatic colours would look in this house. With lots of windows and very good light coming through, I think I could totally get away with it. And with this in mind, I immediately thought of Abigail Ahern, the queen of darkness. I love how she paints out floors, ceilings, woodwork...everything! I won't be painting my floors (unfortunately) or the wood work anytime soon I am totally up for going to town on all the walls and ceilings. And Downpipe by Farrow & Ball seems to be the most perfect, dreamy colour. 

If anyone has any suggestions of what I should do or ideas for paint colours let me know!

Dark drama

Interior designer Chelsea Hing's own home is dramatic in its dark guise. Inky and inspiring with just a dash of quirk. After all dark drama needs a counterpoint. Stylish apartment living in Melbourne.

Aloha

Aloha Friday. Is that you I see peeping up on the horizon? That means the weekend isn't fair away. In the meantime lets jump into photographer crush Graham Atkins-Hughes' portfolio and wallow in some of my fav images. Dark and dramatic, always guaranteed to bring a smile to my face.

Stalking the girl with the pearl earring

A long, narrow, one bedroom apartment in a complex with great facilities. So often the private space pales in comparison with the public areas. But the girl with the pearl earring seems to have settled in a stylish pad. 80 m²and in most part only 3.2 m wide. Slick finishes, mirror and drama. Stalking an apartment in Redfern, Sydney. Link here while it lasts.

Dark bright

I'm taking the day off today. I hope you are too Kim. It's the start of the Easter holidays. A sombre day for some, the slowest day of the year for others and the start of a chocolate filled long weekend for yet more. I had to drop in and share at least one beautiful picture though. I couldn't help myself. Something to tie you over until tomorrow. I love this room. I love this photograph. I found it in the amazing portfolio of the photographer duo Floto+Warner.
