Happy Happy Friday everyone!. Today we bring you a little bit of Wabi-sabi. Wabi what?…. you might say. Wabi-sabi! It’s a Japanese saying which in a nut shell means “The art of finding beauty in the imperfect”. Much like this room - I mean look at those windows! This is my very simplified version of course. Other more detailed definitions go something like this;

"Wabi-sabi is the quintessential Japanese aesthetic. It is a beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional."

As silly as it may sound to say out loud I absolutely love the meaning of this. I definitely live my life by Wabi-sabi.

Have a Wabi-sabi weekend everyone x

So another design crush today - the wonderfully moody and eclectic Dimore Studio boys. I’ve been crushing on these guys for a while now. I just love the way they use colour and the creativity & attention to detail that runs through each and everyone one of their projects. That bed for example is gorgeous! I mean who doesn’t want a patinated brass headboard? It’s their sophisticated eye for detail and unexpected use of finishes & materials that is at the core of their unique and distinct style.

Another view of that fab bedroom. I’m am just loving the dark wall and the way the art pops against it. I don’t think it could be more perfect. The side table is from Caste Design, who we here at work, are very familiar with and just love to pieces! Over all the choice of pieces mixed with the rich colour palette make for a lovely, strong yet feminine & grown up space.

Ugh, how much do I love this space? Look at those ceiling heights! The combo of white washed brick, dark walls, a hint of beams and the giant oversized foliage is so good. I would happily snuggle up here.

Dear God is that another furry sofa? What’s going on…. who is doing this to me?!? Now I really want one! I have an original Olivier Mourgue two seater sofa which I’m thinking could look very cool in a furry sheepskin. Or will it loose its lines? Decisions, decisions.

Well hello? What have we got here? Loving the Lindsey and rather digging the rest of the room too. I mean that table is positively cartoonish! but yet I don’t hate it (dear god what’s happening to me……furry sofas, cartoon tables….). It’s sort of Grown Up cartoonish if that makes sense. Sophisticated and you can bet very expensive.

Genius! This is what I’ve been missing. A Hammock in my house! As ridiculous as it sounds you have to admit this does look pretty cool, however impractical it may be and I think I’d be further justified because I am after all from the Caribbean. Now, just have to figure out where………

Happy Happy Friday! Ugh the weekend can’t come quick enough. I need a change of pace and some new scenery but for now this will do. I do love a good set of Spiral stairs.

Oh dear god! is that a furry sofa? A furry polar bear sofa? I may have died and gone to mid century heaven (or Hell if you’re not into furry sofas….which is most of you). If you keep in touch with this blog at all then this won’t surprise you. You’ll know my taste if FABULOUS bizarre cool quirky……different. So yep, furry sofas and chevron floors make my hot list.

How about this for a wonderfully eclectic living room?!? I think it’s the walls that capture my attention. They are truly bizarre! but the colour is quite amazing.

You know when you see something and you go on a manic hunt to find it? Yep - so that happened. I’m slightly obsessed with these chairs at the moment. Maybe it’s because I’m loving pink right now but I just adore them!. I will track them down but in the mean time if any of you lovely people out there know who makes them then please do share!

***NEWS FLASH!*** after much hunting I’ve found them! They are the Elettra Lounge Chair by Arflex. Of course they cost more than my life…. (typical) but a girl can dream.

Well that’s certainly a different Fireplace?!? Old, eclectic yet modern and the same time. Not an easy accomplishment but it’s a job well done here me thinks.

Feeling that relaxed breezy vibe today. Being from the Caribbean I’m constantly looking for tropical homes that inspire me. I’ll take this please.
