The firm of Hare + Klein has been a leader in Australian interior design since the late 80s. Their creativity and experience produce innovative designs of quality highlighted by attention to detail.

If I could renovate my bathrooms to look even an iota as incredible as the ones they have designed…*sigh* Oh ya, their other spaces are fabulous too. 🙂

I am in love with ……

…. this furniture! The distressed leather in that rich hue. The shape of the sofa and the nail head detail. The playful fat tufting of the ottoman and that cocktail table. OMG don’t get me started. Where pray tell do these glam meets rock meets Hollywood meets hedonist’s playpen pieces come from? Check out Bradley Hughes. They are Atlanta based and hot, hot hot. Here’s another image Michelle Bradley emailed. Check out the full range here. Seriously lust worthy.
