Flickr finds - sewing corner

This post was the result of this email from Mel: "I have recently purchased a sewing machine to get back into that whole game and am looking for inspiration on how to set up a little designated sewing space. I live in inner-city Sydney so space is not my friend, however for the time being I can carve out a little space in a spare/studio/play room before baby number three arrives in December."

Studio AV Inc.

Steve wrote us recently with the following: "I’ve been a big fan of the website since a friend turned me onto it last year. Lots of inspiration for my slow house remodel project. In the meantime, though, you may like some pics of our office and some of the projects we work on. We’re a high-end audio/video/security/control systems integration firm in Bozeman, Montana, US. While there are lots of businesses who offer similar services to us, we take pride in working closely with architects, interior designers, home builders, furniture builders, electricians, and owners to ensure a clean, aesthetic installation. Definitely check out the Studio AV Offices section in the portfolio." I did just that and loved the raw, industrial loft space and cool furnishings. See below.

Here are a few photos from their portfolio of spaces they've done installations in.


Inspiring workspaces

Last summer I blogged about a site I found called This Ain't No Disco (it's where we work), that invites agencies to send in photos of their spaces. I recently revisited the site and found more photos of workspaces that make me HATE the space I work in, that I swore I'd do something with and haven't yet.


This Ain't No Disco (it's where we work)

I happened upon the website This Ain't No Disco (it's where we work) the other day while googling for blog material. It showcases some of the best agency (advertising, media, music, technology etc.) interiors in the world. It was so much fun to see the creative environments where people work. Because I work for the government I'm stuck in a cubicle with green walls and blue industrial carpeting and a cream desktop. It's gross. I've been wanting to decorate it lately and when I have a permanent office in a couple months I'm SOOOO going to pimp it out. This site is so inspirational to get me to actually do something about the space I have to deal with 8.5 hours a day. I hope this inspires others out there stuck in a cubicle or equally horrible office to go nuts and make the space your own.


Sew groovy!

Lots of open up, flip down, roll away good ideas from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 15 Pre to Shu, Greystone Press, New York. No date but I'm assuming late 60s. 18 volumes of alphabetical retro inspiration. I'd kill for a sewing space this fabulous! Need to find a cupboard and start planning.

P.S. Sorry about the quality of some of these images but that's what you get from scanning old books! And don't forget to click on the pictures to get the whole retro inspiration.
