I was reading the ‘About – Why we rock’ section of Calgary interior designer Amanda Hamilton‘s website to figure out what to include in this intro when these phrases caught my attention and had me cracking up: Breaking the rules is kind of our thing, so we’ve gone against traditional business rules that advise against mixing business with pleasure. We spend a great deal of time with our clients and we need to like working with each other. Scratch that – we need to love working with each other. It’s not a real friendship until we know your dog’s favourite spot to scratch and you know that we go crazy for Soy Chai Lattes. Amanda, you’re hired! Actually I would have been sold upon seeing that makeup organization drawer….*sigh*.
I found this compact São Paulo apartment designed by Brazilian architect Alan Chu and had to share. It’s got micro square footage but Alan made such great use of limited space. A single wall was converted into storage for both the kitchen and living room, which kept the majority of those spaces free for basic furnishings. I think he and the owner like subway tiles. 🙂 The spiral staircase is compact and a gorgeous architectural feature. Overall, a really cool space. (Via Casa Vogue Brasil)
