Annette's apartment in Oslo

Back in the summer I blogged the beautiful work of interior designer and photographer Annette Nordstrøm, so I was excited when Annette emailed the other day wanting to share with us her dream apartment in Oslo, Norway. I can see why it's a dream. It has fantastic architectural details like huge windows, arched cielings, exposed beams, old radiators etc. etc. Annette and her stylist partner Christian have created such a stunning home, utilizing many pieces of furniture that were inherited or found at auction, mixed with Moroccan details for an eclectic, global vibe. The neutral palette, mix of textures and patterns along with the architecture has me completely smitten.

Maristela Gorayeb

I was pleasantly surprised when I came across the portfolio of Brazilian interior designer Maristela Gorayeb. Her style is a favourite of mine - a mix of ethnic and modern. She works with each, and the 2 in conjunction, so beautifully. It's about neutral backdrops with jewel tones pops of colour and lots of textures and patterns. Maristela's vibe is not for minimalists nor die-hard modernists. :)

Lucy Fenton

Ever imagine what it would be like living in your favourite shop? Well if the wonderland of a store Fenton & Fenton is that shop then 33 Wattle Rd, Hawthorne is where you should be living. As one of a number of creatives asked to style a display apartment last year Lucy Fenton brought her shop to life in an otherwise boring cookie cutter apartment. Colourful, quirky, beautiful her apartment showcased all that her Prahan shop has come to stand for. And now her newly launched website brings her shop to life for those who can't walk through the doors. A must see gallery if you love colour with a touch of ethnic aesthetic, vintage with midcentury re-invented and the unexpected, always the unexpected. Love!

Quickie 2

Ever had the daydream of living in a showroom? I do and if I could I'd be moving into hunter gatherer and designer Jason Mowen's. His Redfern shop-front looks just as cool in person. Sorry Jason I was the one who left the drool on your window a month or so ago.

A villa in Pattaya

I've said this plenty of times on the blog - I LOATHE WINTER. It's only December 17th and I don't know how I'm going to make it through the rest of the season. I wear flannel PJ's to bed, which is made up with polar fleece sheets. I could use a little vacay from this nonsense, and since I likely have to wait until February to make it south, I thought a virtual trip to a villa in Pattaya, Thailand would do for now. Chakraphan wrote us an email with some photos of this heavenly villa he designed. It's part of a grouping of 7 private villas called Villataya, each one containing 2-3 bedrooms, with 205 - 250 sq m of space and a private pool! It's beautiful, and I'm about to close my eyes and attempt to teleport myself there... 

P.S. Happy birthday Valerie!!!!!!
