Stalking two on a Saturday

Two houses, very few words. Sound like a good deal? First house in in Prahan, Melbourne. The second in Surry Hills, Sydney. Link and link and done 🙂

A funky dining space

Posted on Fri, 24 May 2013 by KiM

I found the following awesome space on The Village, and while I don’t speak Russian, Google Translate tells me this is a space created by Herculis Studio. They might be a catering business, something culinary-related anyway, and they wanted a space to meet with clients and discuss projects and organize dinners and parties for friends. Just about all of the decor and furniture was purchased at flea markets around the world. I freaking LOVE this. Jo and I are flea market/thrift junkies and this space is so much fun and quirky and super cool. I can imagine spending hours in here with friends and family feasting and chatting and having a drink or 3. (Photos by Olga Eichenbaum)

Catherine Kwong

Sophisticated and elegant, fresh and modern. San Fransisco interior designer Catherine Kwong is all that and a bag of chips. And AMEN for her having fabulous photos in her portfolio (I think all care of Bess Friday).

Beautiful interiors with a marriage of contemporary and traditional. Serene and elegant but always with a sure sense of the practical. A soft, muted palette adds is layered with texture while careful attention to detail makes all the difference. But the decorating element I love the most in these rooms? (And one often neglected.) The wonderful light. Like another layer to the design. Stylish interiors by Tanya Capello.

Derek Swalwell update

Posted on Thu, 23 May 2013 by KiM

We’ve been crushing on Australian photographer Derek Swalwell for a long time. A really really really long time. Not only are his photographs absolutely dreamy, but he has had the opportunity to visit some of the most architecturally fabulous homes I think I’ve ever seen. I am envious. At least we are able to “visit” them virtually through his lens. I’ll take what I can get.
