  • A converted school in Budapest by artKRAFT
    I am sharing some industrial loft love today care of the new home for the industrial design group artKRAFT. Located in a former school in Budapest, it is 125 m² of rough, well-worn awesomeness, as I have come to expect from these folks. I love that they left it as one large room, with the exception of the bathroom of course :), and they maintained as many of the original fittings as possible. What a fun space to decorate and redecorate with lots of light and potential! (Photos: Csaba Barbay of Flashback Studio) ... Read more »

  • Before and after – an all white backyard oasis
    Over a year ago I shared with you an amazing garden makeover by West Australian based Ascher Smith Exterior Styling & Landscaping . (Click here to see the transformation.) Well Ascher and her team have been working their magic again. Sad, forlorn and downright ugly before,  after it’s an all white delight. Everyone with small suburban backyards should be so lucky to have the perfect alfresco family space. ... Read more »
  • New reads on a Sunday
    Happy Sunday dear readers! I received some more new books in the mail lately so I thought I would share them today, in the hopes to distract all those suffering from the onslaught of winter. These books are really REALLY good and must-haves for your coffee table. I honestly need a bigger house with a bigger living room so I can have a ginormous coffee table just to display books. Anyway, this first one from Vendome Press is maximum eye candy. David Gill: Designing Art. I think I have been living under a rock, because I didn’t really know who David... Read more »
