Down Mejico way

I was in Sydney for a couple of days this week. (Thanks Freedom! More of that to come.) Dinner was at Mejico, a new Mexican restaurant (doh!) with great food and a cool interior. The only thing louder than the fluoro pink and black walls was the noise of patrons having fun. 150 different tequilas. Hell yeah! Design by Juicy.

Amanda Hamilton

I was reading the 'About - Why we rock' section of Calgary interior designer Amanda Hamilton's website to figure out what to include in this intro when these phrases caught my attention and had me cracking up: Breaking the rules is kind of our thing, so we’ve gone against traditional business rules that advise against mixing business with pleasure. We spend a great deal of time with our clients and we need to like working with each other. Scratch that – we need to love working with each other.

Actually I would have been sold upon seeing that makeup organization drawer....*sigh*.

Summer sublime

The porch is perfect, the pool area splendid. The kitchen is to die for. While away the summer days in a purpose built little white cottage. It's like being on vacation all year round. This Charleston home has me all hot and bothered. Thank goodness for the pool and the porch! The architect is Heather A Wilson with interior design by Jen Langston.

Jen Langston

Modern, elegant and invigorating. Family living that is stylish and colourful, special but not at all precious. From the jewel like pops of the emerald green chairs to white on white to opposing stripes, Charleston, South Carolina based interior designer Jen Langston creates wonderful spaces that we'd all love to live in. I want to be five again and have a brother so I can share that knockout kids' room. Hey might even paint one for myself at my age now! Inspirational.

Perfectly imperfect

Slick, high end furnishings sit perfectly within an imperfect shell, heightening the luxe through contrast with the rough. But the old room holds firm with its faded grandeur. Is the beauty in the new or in the old or the way they interact? By Brazilian design studio Gisele Taranto Arquitetura.
