Alain Brugier

Posted on Tue, 11 Dec 2012 by KiM

The more photos I come across from Brazil, the more I want to finally visit this gorgeous country. The landscape is breathtaking, and it’s inhabitants seem to be a creative, non-trend-following bunch of really cool people (holla at all our Brazilian followers!). After having a looksie through the portfolio of photographer Alain Brugier, I am putting a trip to Brazil high on my bucket list.

Studio Indigo

Posted on Tue, 27 Nov 2012 by KiM

Studio Indigo is a multidisciplinary practice based in Chelsea, London where architects, interior designers and property management specialists focus on the refurbishment and extension of residences in central London and abroad. Their projects are all spectacular, from classic and elegant to more modern and edgy. Their attention to detail and quality of workmanship is evident in the homes they have transformed. I adore the blue/grey walls in the first couple of photos – moody and dramatic but not too dark (and I generally don’t even like blue!).

UnWaste Bookcase

Posted on Mon, 26 Nov 2012 by midcenturyjo

“You spin me right round, baby right round like a record… “

Apologies to Dead or Alive but how cool is this rotating shelving wall, the UnWaste bookcase, a collaboration between architect Ben Milbourne (Bild Architecture), eco-designer Leyla Acaroglu (Eco Innovators) and specialist furniture designer David Waterworth (Against the Grain). (Photography by TM PHOTO.) It divides the open space into living and sleeping areas while allowing light and airflow between the spaces and providing much needed storage in a warehouse conversion. The bookcase is built from reclaimed plywood from construction site hoardings providing surface design interest through the remains of old advertising posters and stencils.

Diane Bergeron update

Posted on Wed, 14 Nov 2012 by KiM

It has been eons since Jo blogged Melbourne-based interior design maven Diane Bergeron. I stumbled upon her portfolio recently and was once again intrigued. A riot of colours and patterns characterizes her energetic and inviting spaces. This is eye candy at it’s finest.

This was a favourite back in ’08 with the first post and it’s still a HUGE favourite of mine. I’ve always loved the idea of having a massive library as a dining room.

Milly de Cabrol

Posted on Mon, 12 Nov 2012 by KiM

Milly de Cabol is an Italian interior designer currently living in New York City (and that’s her living room above). I admire her eclectic, somewhat classic style of decorating that produces chic, understated yet elegant environments. The refreshing blends of textures and colours add alot of depth and keeps her spaces from being too serious.
