What a great idea! If you’re having some stairs constructed why not consider this. Handy and hidden, a great storage idea for linen, winter woollies, books and papers, anything small in fact.

P.S. These amazing stairs have travelled all over the blogosphere in a few short weeks. This is a scanned image from the Vogue Living Australia Before+After Autumn/Winter 2007 issue. The true originator of this staircase, the joinery company is named in the comments. If you’re in Australia and want one of these then google their name and their address and phone number are yours.

Outdoor rooms

Whether it’s a patio or a courtyard, a veranda or a cabana, a balcony or deck, a loggia or just a patch of grass extend your living area outside. Go alfresco with these ideas and reclaim that porch.

Look what I found playing on Stumble Upon. Furnid is a Danish design company that produces this amazing table. LOVE IT! Can’t read a word on the site but LOVE IT!

Front Studio

Rigorous design standards blended with a sense of humour. Front Studio’s principles Yen Ha and Michi Yanageshita pursue a combination of art and architecture. Intensive exploration of their clients’ needs and site constraints is balanced by their obsessive pursuit of Lunch. The girls and I swapped flickr contacts a few weeks ago. I’m impressed by their design talent and their intensive pursuit of the answer to “what’s for lunch?”
