Last weekend I saw a couple to-die-for mid-century modern chairs that I had to leave in the shops because I cannot justify owning more chairs. This has had me thinking about chairs, and I realized it has been far too long since my last chair porn post.

Susann Larsson is an interior designer from Malmö, Sweden. You’ll know her as the creative force behind one of my most favourite blogs Purple Area. (I’m there everyday drinking it all in.) This is Susann’s home. Gorgeous! It’s quite minimalist, simple and clean but still a wonderfully warm and individual family home. Love that wall of books and yet another example that not all Scandinavian design is white. Oh no it’s all grown up grey in this purple area!
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?
Patrick Flynn is a designer/project manager at envelopeA+D, an architecture and design firm based in Oakland, California and he emailed us thinking we’d be interested in a project the firm recently completed (it was featured in the NY Times yesterday). Interested??? I almost passed out when I saw the photos. This home is so unbelieveably cool and funky and creative and plucked right out of my dreams. I am completely smitten with it. The Victorian duplex is located in San Francisco, and is owned by Claire Bigbie (an interior designer who now designs for the firm) and her skateboarder boyfriend Jay Shapiro. It was renovated to house a creative studio for Claire on the main floor and the living quarters upstairs. I adore absolutely everything about this home, including the incredible blue-black exterior (used to downplay the Victorian embellishments). Thanks so much Patrick for sharing this with us! Every photo below is going in my inspiration folder, and I imagine in many of our readers’ folders too.
