Photos of note

When devouring the portfolio of photographer Jonas Ingerstedt the other day, I found a few photos with elements I wanted to take note of. 

I love wood left in its natural state - even plywood. This wall of shelving is so simple. LOVE!

I am a little distracted by the really cool Magis chairs but after wiping off my drool I noticed the rod along the ceiling - awesome minimalist idea for basic lighting. 

And speaking of lighting, I'm still smitten with bare bulb light fixtures, and hanging them in this set-up is really creative. Especially when highlighting objects directly below.

New bits and bobs around my house

I thought I'd do a little something different today since I spent just about all day yesterday organizing parts of my house, taking photos, sorting through the photos and tweaking the photos. (Amazing how time consuming this ends up being). I acquired a few things recently so I thought I'd share them with you. Keep in mind I still have plans to tear this house down in the (hopefully) near future but in the meantime I still need to keep myself amused with decorating it.

I did a little something in my dressing room which you can check out over on closetrivalry.com. On the same wavelength as that little project, there are a couple of new additions to my living room. First, I decided that I was tired of not really having anything over the sofa (it's been 5 or 6 years) and since I have next to no space to display anything in this house, I decided to stick a shelf there. My husband took me out to a lumber yard and we found some gorgeous raw edge planks of wood. We bought 3 and used 2 in the dressing room and one over the sofa. My vintage cameras have been in storage for a while so I pulled those out and for some reason I like displaying lightbulbs (but I need a better bowl) so there we have it - a little display of stuff and things. 

I stopped in at the new Modern Shop downtown location last weekend (I blogged it here) and could not resist picking up a couple things. (More on that and other goodies after the jump!)

Kevin Dumais favourites

A 2-story bookcase would be a dream come true. I'd never have to throw out a shelter mag or book ever again, and a place to display every knick knack I have stashed in the basement. *sigh*

Graphic photography as artwork, and a stunning statement chandelier. YES!!!

Clarisse Reade

Clarisse Reade is an interior designer from Brazil who is apparently not a fan of minimalism. Layer upon layer of funiture, art and knick knacks appears to be Clarisse's signature style and I think she does it really well. None of these spaces look overly crowded and instead of wanting to run and hide, I want to devour every inch. Lovely spaces. (Hope the owners have housekeepers - can you imagine dusting those shelves??)
