Favs of the week

Posted on Sun, 31 Oct 2010 by KiM

… Happy Halloween

The packing continues along with lots of coffee, the occasional break and mutterings that I have waaaaay too much “stuff”. Hope you enjoy exploring these blogs as much as I did. I’m headed back to the boxes. If you want to see what else has been going on at my place this week you can find out more on my page.











Friday lovelies

Posted on Fri, 29 Oct 2010 by KiM

I’m kinda swamped with blog work (besides getting this post done) so I took a quick peek through my photo stash and found many photos from Period Living, a site that I have become smitten with. The tile floors, exposed beams and country charm always do it for me. I often crave much more modern spaces but it’s eye candy nonetheless. Enjoy your Friday folks!

Here it is the end of the week and I’m still lost in Michael Wee’s portfolio. This time I’ve been wandering through the stunning gardens he has photographed. I’m particularly taken by the city backyards. Small spaces, clever ideas and great shots by Michael.


Reader request – antique bathtub

Posted on Thu, 28 Oct 2010 by KiM

Time for this week’s reader request: “My name is Gisela Diaz and I’m a Spanish girl living in Portugal. Recently I bought a antique bathtub. I been looking for that for more than ten years, and finally I got it. I would like to ask you for some inspiration to restore it and to install it.” I went through my stash of bathroom photos and found some featuring antique bathtubs – mainly clawfoot – to show Gisela the placement/colours/taps and whatever else she may need to figure out. I am completely jealous. I have wanted a clawfoot tub for a long time. Actually, I’d settle for any tub that is large enough to take a bath in (and have adequate water coverage). Last time I took a bath I was probably 8 years old. In all the homes I have rented/bought I have never had a decent tub. I think it’s about time I get one….
