Ara Design Studio

I love this apartment. The work of Ara Design Studio it was the winner of the 2006 Design Institute of Australia's Interior Design Awards: Best Residential Interior Decoration. That's just a mouthful for saying it is HOT! So is this Australian interior design firm.

If I was an outdoor room ....

.... I'd be this cast concrete soaking tub designed by Oliver Burns. Alfresco bathing on late spring afternoon, pure bliss! I think I need some champagne too.


Love this idea

I love the idea of pages torn from a vintage book taped above the bed. Love their time yellowed look and the haphazard (but obviously well planned) arrangement. From the work of Sacha Dunn. More on this fabulous stylist just below.


OMG I need to live here!

I have found my new interior design star and her stunning house near the lake in Zurich, Switzerland. Sue Rohrer is the genius behind these rooms. I think this passage from her feature in the Andrew Martin International Interior Design Review says it all.

"Designer: Sue Rohrer. Company Sue Rohrer Zumikon, Zurich, Switzerland. Wants to study at St Martin's School of Art, London. Could be exiled with just her Amex card. Would paint her whole house black. Feels that cars should run on alternative energy. Would love to be painted by Modigliani. Covets an Alexander Calder mobile. Wants to do lunch with Karl Largerfeld.
Fantasy cover story: Financial Times' How To Spend It magazine,
'Biggest Lottery Winner, ever.'"

Go immediately to her website. Go go what are you waiting for? There are too too many fabulous OTT rooms. LOVE!

This contemporary is a classic

Another look at a stunning house for sale in my home town of Brisbane. In our subtropical climate living outside is common almost all year round. A flow between the interior and the exterior is important. This is a stylish contemporary with one thing much prised by the inhabitants of Bris Vegas. No not the pool, the beautiful mature jacaranda tree out front. I'd kill for a tree like that.
