Look at this portfolio! Isn’t it just amazing? These stunning rooms have been captured so beautifully by super talented Oz photographer Sue Ferris. Everything is just perfect, the lighting, the composition and Sue’s ability to bring the rooms to life. I feel as if I could march right into that first room and make it my own. Don’t miss her food portfolio. Simply scrumptious!

Grand Tour

Posted on Tue, 25 Mar 2008 by midcenturyjo


Call it serendipity but just as I’m ready to write today’s post I receive an email from Jonathan Adler’s PR Director Deb Willis letting us in on Jonathan’s latest addition to his website, his monthly musings. This month he waxes lyrical on his Neo-Neo-Classicism range and mentions the Grand Tour. Grand tour! Here’s the serendipity….


Today’s post is an OMG gobstopper. Look at this outrageous one bedroom (yes one bedroom!) London apartment. Well-to-do young men of the 18th and 19th century travelled Europe improving their classical education and bringing home a few well chosen (dare I say pilfered) souvenirs. Think Elgin Marbles. What I’d really like to know is if this is the owner’s collection or if they inherited it from their Europe trotting ancestor? My goodness I hope they have a cleaning lady! Although I could not live like this I secretly envy them this amazing collection and the passion needed to live with it. Perhaps I’ll take just a soupçon of Jonathan Adler’s pieces instead!


Congratulations! You’re almost done with our marathon blogathon. It’s like an all nighter at the drive-in theatre. (OMG am I dating myself.) I’ve only got one chocolate bunny left and I’ve already bitten off his ears (see above) but he will be just enough to help me reach the end of the reading guide. OK here we go!

2 days down and 2 to go! Keeping up OK? Here’s your next installment. I’ve finished my eggs and it’s time to demolish the chocolate bunnies. Just remember the secret is to pace yourself… on blogs that is not bunnies!

From this to this

Do you have any weekend projects on the go? I planned to spray this thrift shop frame a bright sunny yellow and ditch the shell “painting” inside. I changed my mind after a coat of white paint. If the easter eggs are making you hyper then a little weekend project might be just what the doctor (or more importantly the nutritionist) ordered.
