Pia Bijkerk

Posted on Wed, 26 Sep 2007 by midcenturyjo

Pia Bijkerk is an Australian stylist/photographer/writer who emailed to share her website. “I am in Paris working on interior projects for Paris clients as well as working on the makings of my first book. I work between Paris, Amsterdam and Sydney, juggling (or continually working on a balance as I like to tell myself!) between magazine, advertising and interior projects.” Pia’s worked for Marie Claire, Real Simple, Vogue Entertaining + Travel to name drop just a few. Beautiful website, great work and cute “definition” on the front page. We just had to share her work with you.

Zebra rug

Posted on Tue, 25 Sep 2007 by KiM

My love for zebra rugs has existed for some time now, as I mentionned in a previous post. I’m talking FAUX zebra. Real zebra would be VERY WRONG. I have never owned a zebra rug but would so love to get my hands on one (or three). I love anything graphic and black/white is my favourite colour combination so zebra rugs are right up my alley. Here are spaces that…*sigh*…include a lovely zebra rug.

This photo I had to include because the rug, while not zebra, is incredible in this space.

Retro …. ready?

Yeah! That time again. Suspend your disbelief and wind back your taste meter. This weeks scans are from The Practical Encyclopedia of Good Decorating and Home Improvement, Vol 1, Greystone Press, New York, 1970. Love this set of books. So much to inspire!
