Working on a Saturday

I was just going to pontificate about style and work and weekends like I usually do but the architects, Williams Burton Leopardi, describe this building in Kent Town, South Australia so much better than any glib badinage I could come up with.

The workplace today needs community, connection and inclusion. Base 64 is set up as a community of cohabitating businesses under the umbrella of former Internode chief Simon Hackett. Seen as a technology incubator, it eschews the short term excesses of a Silicon Valley “fun park” office for an emphasis on belonging, integration with the outdoors, rich, lush, tactile materials and a sense of comfort and well being. All this is underpinned by a strict environmental responsibility and adaptive re-use.

Working on a Saturday

What do you get when decor diva Tamara Kaye-Honey of House of Honey weaves her magic for hotel gurus Mr & Mrs Smith? Why a design marriage made in heaven of course! Which is why, if you have to drag your sorry old self into work on a Saturday I hope it is somewhere as stylish as this.

Working on a Saturday

If you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend then things are so much easier if your workplace is stylish and fun. Like the chambers of Hilditch Lawyers in South Australia designed by Williams Burton Leopardi. Theatrical, tongue in cheek, bold and quirky this is no fuddy-duddy legal firm. More fabulous than old fogey. More modern than mossy.

Rearranging, hanging and redecorating

Happy Canada Day fellow Canadians!! It is a miserable day here in the country's capital as it usually seems to be on this, the biggest holiday of the year (WTF). Instead of attempting to enjoy the festivities around the city in the rain I am sitting here at my computer having spent the morning tweaking photos I took last weekend of some decorating and rearranging I did when I managed to find some spare time. So I thought I would share them with you all today before I knock more items off my blog to-do list and then head to my parents for a random turkey dinner. 

I have lived in this house for a year now and had yet to hang anything on the walls, so despite not having painted many rooms, I decided to hang some art in my dining room and office area in my living room before I lose my mind. For my workspace I opted for a picture shelf, that way I can rotate art as frequently as I wish without damaging my plaster walls that are painted in my favourite colour of all time - Farrow & Ball's downpipe. It seems Ikea no longer carries their picture shelves unfinished so I had my husband build me one so I could paint it the wall colour. I really love my little monochromatic office corner now. :)

I would love to replace that Panton chair with a tall plant (perhaps a fiddle leaf fig that I can promptly kill).
