Reader’s home

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2010 by KiM

I’d like you all to meet Thiago.

Thiago is a 27 year old from Curitiba, Brazil, and he wanted to share his home with our readers. He decorated his home with vintage and industrial items and he did it all on his own. I think he’s done an awesome job turning this into a hip bachelor’s pad. Congrats Thiago! (To all the ladies out there reading this post –  better make sure your S.O. is not within viewing distance of your monitor or you may need to replace your grandmother’s antique rosewood hutch with a tool chest, or you’ll find a beer sign propped on your buffet where your Chinese porcelain ginger jar used to be).



Stalking on a Friday

Posted on Fri, 12 Feb 2010 by midcenturyjo

TGIF! Oh what a week. Definitely not one I’d like to repeat. Thank goodness for online real estate stalking to take my mind off icky illness and mounting piles of work. In my imagination I’m opening the front door of this Balmain terrace in Sydney, dropping my keys in the bowl and making a bee line to the fridge for a cold glass of white wine. I’ll turn, take in the calm of my home and sigh. My imaginary life is so lovely!

Brandon Barré

What a pleasure it was to receive an email from Brandon Barré, a photographer from Toronto, who thought we might want to share his photography with our readers. Since his work is the SHIZNIT, I was stoked to devour his newly updated web portfolio and scoop up my favourites. Some of the spaces may be familar to those who watch a design TV show or two. Candice Olson and Colin and Justin are among his clients! (And stay tuned Monday for his entries to the Pets on Furniture post!)


Moises Esquenazi

Posted on Thu, 11 Feb 2010 by midcenturyjo

Feeling hot? Feeling stylish? Feeling the whole Palm Springs’ glam? Want colour? Need colour? Feast your eyes on the not so timid designs of Moises Esquenazi. If the snow is getting you down in your neck of the woods pack your bags and move right in in your imagination. A well stocked bar and a seriously sexy pool area await. It’s all just through that shocking pink door. Think colour, comfort and a great sense of humour.

Furniture on casters

Posted on Wed, 10 Feb 2010 by KiM

Estelle wrote us recently with a request: “I like furniture on casters a lot. I would appreciate if you can have a post showing how imaginative (DIY) people have added casters to their furniture.” This was a tough request, especially looking for imaginative uses for casters, but regardless, here are a pile of photos I managed to find in my stash.
