 …. packing Kim’s next thrifted box. Just have to post it now!

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?

  • Loving these pendant lights in iridescent blown glass (white or clear), each with a blue feeder cord. Actually loving more than just one. I’ll take that room too! The Bolla at Gineico.

  • Modern eco-friendly furniture designed and made in Atlanta Georgia. Joe Manus calls it dirty, sexy, clever and dark. He named it Shiner (as in black eye). I call it stylish.

  • It’s about snuggling up on the couch with a gorgeous pillow, using the good napkins everyday, having a pretty tea towel hanging in the oven door. It’s about Pony Rider.

  • Futé, it’s French for smart, sharp, clever. Stunning contemporary lifestyle furniture. Summer lounging, drinks by the pool, hot furniture for a hot summer. 

  • Just a taste of the magic that awaits you at Resign, a  collective of young designers based in Faenza (Italy) whose work is steeped in the symbolic value of objects. Wonderful pieces!

Ty Cole

On Saturday Jo WINKed photographer Ty Cole’s online gallery and today I’d like to showcase some of his architectural and interior photography. His photos are sharp and bright and he frames interesting elements so perfectly. (And I had to include that last photo – I am going to dream about those rough timber floors tonight…)

Can I describe photographs as clean and minimal? Refreshingly simple but cleverly composed. Spare elegant spaces captured in an instant. Messages cleverly conveyed through a lens. This room is graceful, that design is effortless, unforced and natural. All these thoughts tumble through my mind as I view photographer Mark Eden Schooley’s work. Honest and beautiful. Real and remarkable. P.S. Has green ever been so beautiful?









Galley kitchens

Posted on Thu, 18 Feb 2010 by KiM

I figured it was about time for another reader request. This one comes from Marisa: “We bought a 1950’s house a few years ago and are (finally) ready to start planning our kitchen renovation. It’s terrible! Three layers of stick-on tiles, fake wood countertops, “custom” lighting. However, most inspiration kitchens are open plan, while ours is galley – and no potential to be otherwise because every wall in this house is cement block. Weird! Would you be willing to find some galley kitchen inspiration photos?” Simple enough request. Here ya go Marisa! (OMG aren’t cement walls a b*tch?!)
