Green with envy

Posted on Tue, 17 Jun 2008 by KiM

Peggy, our blogging friend, emailed with a request. “I was wondering if you guys had any pictures of all green rooms? By that I mean the color green. I keep searching and only finding sustainable (I guess green is the adjective for this) rooms. I’ve only recently fell in love with orange, and even more recently fell in love with yellow. Green is a color I don’t like much and don’t use very often, so I wonder if there is a possibility I could fall in love with it to if I saw it in some beautiful rooms.” Now how could you not already love green? I am a huge fan of bright green, like kelly green or chartreuse, and if the following photos don’t change your mind Peggy, then you’re hopeless…and Jo won’t send you her charteuse dresser you’ve been begging for.

WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week? (Or should I say the past couple of weeks because of the reading guides!)

  • Gemma Comas, whose work we featured here, has joined the blogosphere. Her latest work is featured on her blog and of course it’s gorgeous. Welcome Gemma!!
    • I received a newsletter from Avolli an extensive resource for quality Swedish antiques in the Gustavian, Biedermeier, Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern styles. Their online catalogue is drool worthy. Beautiful beautiful pieces.
    • Anna emailed to introduce her blog Let them eat anemones a few weeks ago and it’s taken me all this time to share it with you. Lots of etsy finds, art and design. Great blog Anna!
    • Ann-Louise Lollo Jansson saw our post on Decor Maison and wrote to let us know that she is importing these wallpapers into Australia through her business Scandinavian Wallpaper & Decor. She is based in Perth, Western Australia and wholesales throughout Australia. I’m so excited because this is such a gorgeous range!
    • J. Lohmann Gallery specialises in design and decorative arts from the 1920s to the 1980s. Oh this website is full of wonderful furniture, metalwork and ceramics with emphasis on German designers and artistic movements. I want them all. So stylish so covetable. Thanks to Joern for introducing this New York gallery. Swoon.
    • mixd is a new concept for better home living, the mix between an online store and a platform for designers. Every two months they will introduce a new collection, both from designers & restylers. New and vintage furniture, accessories, wall and fabric art. Cutting edge design presented by Yves from Belgium. Sorry it’s taken so long to get you on WINKS Yves but I LOVE everything on your site. Too cool!
    • Summer has arrived at Flutter with juicy summer bright furniture and fun insect hooked pillows. Lots more new in store. Pop over and take a look.
  • Diana sent a link to Jim Rosenau’s shelves and furniture made from books and I’m so glad she did. How amazing is this and SO much fun! See it all on This into That.

OMG! I can’t get enough of photographer David Giles’ portfolio. Specialising in interiors and still life for editorial and PR clients his images are not only beautiful but convey the essence of each room he captures. The wonderful thing about David’s website is that he has an extensive features section. Take the time to explore all these incredible photo stories. You won’t be disappointed!

David Jimenez encore

Posted on Thu, 12 Jun 2008 by KiM

Jo and I are amazed at how many designers, photographers, stylists etc. take the time and email us to thank us for posting their work. Yesterday one of those emails was from David Jimenez, and I’ve got to say, I was as giddy as a little schoolgirl. I was all, “No, thank YOU for being a GENIUS”. Ok, I didn’t say that but perhaps I should have. I was however inspired to post more of his photos (maybe in the hopes of receiving a second email? LOL), so enjoy round 2 of David Jimenez splendour.
