A home in primary colours

I love this home in Milan designed by Studio Cerri & Associati. It's a mid-century dream filled with iconic furnishings and primary colours which stand out against white walls, but are kept warm with beautiful hardwood floors. Perfection. (And that orange kitchen is HOT!)

Jamie Bush

Californian interior designer Jamie Bush "is recognized for his ability to mix period and contemporary furnishings with a fresh and discerning eye. Layering rich colors and textures with exotic and organic elements transforms each of his spaces into an inviting, modern, and unexpected environment." He has a very impressive portfolio that includes mid-century, modern, minimalist and contemporary designs - all which are guaranteed to knock your socks off.


David Jimenez , at it again

I've posted about David Jimenez in the past, here and here, and he's gone and done it again. He sent over some incredible photos of his latest project in Palm Springs. Mid-century meets Hollywood Regency - stunning furnishings, lighting and colours that mesh together so gloriously. Fabulous!! So David, when can I move in??


Auction for cancer

Roan emailed Jo and I, and I had to post about this because he is a fellow Canadian, and my parents are both cancer survivors:

"I was hoping you'd be interested in perhaps blogging about my annual Cancer Society charity auction of 20th Century Design and Decorative Art. This will be the 5th year of the auction, with sales helping generate vital funding for cancer research and emotional support programs for those living with the disease. Held in support of the Canadian Cancer Society, a portion of every sale will be donated to the cause.

The auction will take place on eBay, with items to be listed throughout the week of November 28th, with all listings to end in sequence on December 8th.

This year's collection includes works by Charles and Ray Eames, George Nelson, Eero Saarinen, Hans Wegner, Jean Prouve, Charlotte Perriand, and many more. As well, some interesting art pieces by Takashi Murakami, Larry Clark, Mark Gonzales, and Jeff Koons are also in the mix.

The complete catalog is online now at: ModernLove "

The items up for auction are absolutely incredible. I seriously had a hard time not grabbing every single photo on the website. I love every single piece. Below is just a small sample of what is available. Wishing you lots of luck with the auction Roan!!
