Drew Barrymore rocks

Posted on Mon, 17 Mar 2008 by KiM

Several bloggers have already posted about Drew Barrymore being in the latest issue of Domino but I had to post about it as well because a) she ROCKS, and b) someone from Domino asked us to. The story is about the office of her L.A.-based production company, Flower Films, and how she enlisted the fabulous Ruthie Sommers to decorate it. I LOVE IT – lots of fun colours and lots of vintage finds. Right up my alley. I’m SO buying this issue.

White delight

More beauty in white. There is just something about all white spaces that are just so peaceful, fresh, homey and gorgeous in photos. This Victorian home in London is no exception.

A home to die for

Living Etc. recently included in their magazine a spread of the incredible eclectic Victorian terrace of Mark Homewood, a buyer for interiors and textile company Designers Guild. I adore all the bold colours against the white backdrop. The painted white floorboards everywhere had me gasping in delight. This home is such an inspiration. (So inspiring in fact that thanks to the staircase photos I’ve decided to try and fix my stairs using wood so I can then paint them white with a runner).

Eagle’s Nest

Posted on Mon, 17 Mar 2008 by midcenturyjo

The weekend is over and it’s time to head back to work. Unless you want to join me on a virtual getaway. Eagle’s Nest is set within a 75 acre estate atop its own private ridgeline offering spectacular views of the Bay of Islands, New Zealand. The elegant and simple, eclectic and informal interiors of the luxury villas enhance the breathtaking vistas. Imagine the sunsets viewed from the edge of our horizon edge pool. I’m dreaming of the room service. New Zealand food and wine is some of the best in the world. If only we were really there. (P.S. I am actually on a week’s break but nowhere as romantic as this.)
