…. see my latest find here

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?

  • Katrien from Voila thought we might like these. Yes please! I’m at a loss for words except for ones like want, weird, way out, want and strangely inspiring. When the living room bumps into art. If you don’t already know you can also find Voila on 1st Dibs. In the mean time I’m trying to figure out how I can move in to Voila to live there.

  • Granny chic reaches new heights. Crocheted lights by Moonbasket. Imagine the shadows thrown on the walls and ceiling. Cozy and chic!

  • Two trends, birds and bunting. Combined and the result? These too too cute one of a kind 3D bird art by Atlanta based independent artist and illustrator Pragya. Etsy shop here.

  • The gummybear chair and free-range toy boxes by Yam & Toast… designed with your kids in mind. OK team these with the birds and bunting and you’re on the way to a stellar kid’s room. Too fun!

  • Modernica have a great deal running Monday April 19 to Friday April 30. They are offering free shipping and no tax on the V-Leg and Bentwood Modernica Case Study beds. This includes all single, full, queen, standard + California kings, with both metal or bentwood legs. It’s a great opportunity to get one of these timeless beds!

To end off the work week, how about a little bit ‘o contemporary architecture by New York firm Audrey Matlock Architect. OMG check out all the windows! (I’m not sure how I’d feel sleeping in a bedroom with floor to ceiling windows like photo #2…)


Reader dilemma

Posted on Fri, 16 Apr 2010 by KiM

Angela sent us an email with a dilemma that I’m hoping you all can help her with: “I have recently purchased a small red brick home that was built in 1930 – I love it and cannot wait to get my hands on it. Currently the house is red brick with a heinous John Deere Green trim that I am dying to paint but I have yet to stumble across some really great inspiration or references. It has natural shingles so there are technically three fields of area that need color, red brick being the majority. I love the idea of something slightly eccentric but still classy – like the grey house with the lime green door. I would appreciate if you could point me in the right direction.” Having never had the opportunity to be able to paint the exterior of a house, I am sort of at a loss as to suggestions for Angela, which is why I thought I’d open it up to all of you. Her house is absolutely ADORABLE as you’ll see below, so getting rid of the awful green will make a huge difference and make her home even more fantastic with great curb appeal. Leave your ideas in the comments!


Robert Austin Gonzalez

Clever use of space with interesting storage solutions. Midcentury meets contemporary, modern urban with a clean lines. New York interior designer Robert Austin Gonzalez delivers rooms that scream stylish Big Apple apartment. I personally want the carved timber panel as sliding door, a great counterpoint to the midcentury modern vibe. Clever TV solutions too. While you’re at his website you must check out his furniture collection particularly the Grace range. Sculptural pieces so sexy and sinuous. Yum!
