OMG Want

Posted on Thu, 31 Mar 2011 by KiM

{a recent email Jo and I received}

Hey there,
A client just showed me this guy’s work and knowing what stuff comes up here, thought you might also appreciate :p
I think the official phrase is “OMG Want” >>> http://www.brentdarby.com/

OMG Want is right. OMG Want to be in every single one of these rooms and soak up their beauty. But I’ll settle for oogling these absolutely fabulous photos by Mr. Brent Darby. Thanks Andy!!

Calling all gorgeous Brisbane homes!

Posted on Thu, 31 Mar 2011 by midcenturyjo

You oughta to be in pictures… you oughta be a star! Heads up Bris Vegas readers. A Sydney stylist is heading up to Brisbane to photograph great homes and if you think your place has what it takes then send me a quick email here. Will need to see pictures but what we need is a link to them like your Flickr page, blog, Facebook etc. Didn’t you always want to be in the magazines? Here’s your chance. I’m sulking because my new old house has gone nowhere as far as renovations go. Painter isn’t starting now until May. It’s the plasterer’s fault, too much work, blah, blah, blah… one day my prince (painter) will come!

Eclectic dreams

Posted on Thu, 31 Mar 2011 by midcenturyjo

Now here’s a different take on Swedish white. A huge loft in Stockholm with soaring ceilings, skylights to dream about, a bookcase that makes my heart sing and a roaring fireplace. Eclectic is definitely the vibe here. Contemporary married with fine antiques, throw in tribal pieces and oriental finds, Scandi design and open plan on a grand scale and I’m hooked. Wouldn’t you love to snoop through the bookcase, pick up the knick knacks and turn them over, ask to crank the stereo way up. It may not be the place you’d want to make your home but don’t you just want to party! Oh imagine… night time, low light, fire burning, wine in hand and favourite music… and a couple of dozen of your best friends. For sale here. (Thanks for the link Daniela!)

Daniel Hertzell encore

Posted on Wed, 30 Mar 2011 by KiM

It’s only Wednesday and after yesterday I was seriously ready to throw in the towel, catch a flight to some godforsaken island and never come back. My day job can be a bit stressful here and there but OMG this week has been taxing on my patience. But I made it through without going completely loco, and all I want to post today are some really pretty photos. Is that too much to ask for? I think not. So here you go – some photos from the portfolio of super talented and creative photographer Daniel Hertzell (also featured by Jo here).

So excited when we received an email from super stylist Deb McLean letting us know about the launch of new Australian emag Est. Est is edgy and fresh. Global content but put together with that great Aussie style vibe we are all raving about. Sian MacPherson, Editor in Chief & Lynda Evans, Creative Director have sourced the coolest and the best. It’s so obvious… sexiest, freshest, edgiest, greatest… Est.
