Lusting…

…after this dining room.

I adore the Dear Ingo by Ron Gilad for Moooi light fixture (and my fav new store carries it here!), the thick wooden table, the Thonet bentwood armchairs, the Flos Toio floor lamp… but I could do without that rug.

WINKS

Posted on Sat, 14 Aug 2010 by midcenturyjo

… we’ll miss you Donna… and please don’t kill me for putting you on the blog 😛

WINKS – weekend links. Here we list what has come in during the week, things we’ve found and things we think you’ll want to see. If you’d like to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we’ll link you. So what’s in this week?

  • It’s contemporary craft furniture. It’s handmade from solid timber. It’s influenced by the unpretentious forms of British Country kitchen style, Shaker, traditional Scandinavian and Japanese woodwork. It’s Another Country and it’s gorgeous! P.S. Love the styling!

  • Metal accents especially brass are hot, hot, hot right now. Love these Alphabrass tables by Ladies and Gentlemen. Made from vintage brass table lamps. Reconfigured, reassembled, recycled and quirky!

  • Studio Bon by Bonnee Sharp for Schumacher. Inspired by the simple beauty of the familiar… an iron handrail, interlocking threads, a heartbeat and birds balancing in the breeze. Casual cotton canvas to luxurious linen. Love the graphic shapes. Love the colours.

  • Still on the metal theme I’m loving these hammered iron pendant lights.  And just in case metal isn’t your thing how about this wooden chandelier? I’ve been checking out online retailer Interior Home Spaces where I found these lights and so much more. Continental US shipping unfortunately for those of us in other parts of the world 🙁

Swanky

Posted on Mon, 1 Mar 2010 by KiM

I was scoping out the portfolio of architecture and interior design firm West Chin the other day to see if there were more photos I could showcase here that Jo hadn’t already done in her post back in June. I came across a swanky pad that I thought was worthy of it’s own post. This flat is modern but not too harsh, with funky bits here and there (including a couple sets of boobs and a pair of diaper chairs), and even some cute spaces for the kids (the parents must lock them in their rooms for fear of dirty hands on the furniture). FAB!

Bathroom lighting dilemma

Posted on Mon, 9 Feb 2009 by KiM

Ian wrote us last week with a request for some ideas for this bathroom: “I’m trying to get my bathroom lighting sorted and I’ve decided against harsh overhead lighting with the plan of having the mirror lit either side instead which is a much more flattering light. However, I’ve looked everywhere and can find barely any ideas! I was thinking of a couple of Glo-balls coming out of the mirror, or recessed lighting, or a pair of Tolomeo lights coming out of the wall etc. Anything other than a horrid downlighter above my head! I wondered if you may be able to help me and post some much needed inspiration on your site?”

I went through my photos of bathrooms and selected some that hopefully give Ian some ideas. I personally think 2 glo-ball-like lights hanging on either side or wall-mounted Tolomeos would look fantastic. (I’ve got Tolomeos on either side of my range and I LUV them!). Examples of these and others are below.
