As I say week after week if you have to drag yourself into work on a weekend it helps if it’s somewhere stylish… like this office by Dutch interior design firm Studio Slow. Love the Formakami pendant lights by Jaime Hayon and the deliciously refreshing minty green paint (Aresenic from Farrow & Ball).
I have a “thing” for lighting. Table lamps and floor lamps, wall washers and pendants. Layer upon layer of ambiant lighting. I think it’s like adding jewellery to an outfit. Little sparkles and highlights. Time for a little lighting eye candy, in particular pendants.
You can find great pendant lights for less at Destination Lighting. They are a pioneer in the light fixture industry, with roots tracing back to Seattle, Washington in 1917. With 100 years of experience featuring brick and mortar showrooms throughout the northwest, they offer thousands of lighting products that fit every need and budget. Their goal is to make every home a little brighter.
Two houses, one title, modern yet old with it’s foundations carved into the ancient Sydney sandstone. I’m stalking “Villa Moderna” in Darlinghurst. The main house furnished. The other empty. Think of it as the ultimate annex. Altogether one hell of a house. The plans are key to understanding this one. Link here while it lasts.
…or is it?
Israel-based Ando Studio designed this apartment in Saint Germain, Paris last year. The team of architects, interior designers and CG artists specialize in 3D renderings. So this apartment is….or isn’t…. Although either way it is freaking fantastic!
Fridays should be about good things, and lofts are reeeeeally good things. I will be featuring 2 lofts today, and this one is an absolute dream of exposed brick, beams and columns, modern additions and the coolest concrete wall. This 2,000 sqf renovation of a former garment factory floor in New York’s Lower East Side serves as a casual 1-bedroom loft apartment for the owner, and a place to entertain and relax. The layout provides a maximum of open studio space and a secluded sleep and bath area. Inspired by the rustic materials in the previous manufacturing space , the aesthetics of the loft combines rough and simple materials with bold industrial objects and colors.
