Don’t judge me……. my taste is becoming more bizarre by the day, I’m fully aware of this, but to be fair….. I blame it on my clients :) I mean just this week I’ve been dealing with palm wallpapers, flamingos, taxidermy bears, huge paper horse sculptures, all manner of vintage Italian wall lights and chandeliers and so much more. Talking to Paris, NY, Montana (random right?) Milan and even Australia, so it’s no wonder it takes a lot to pique my interest these days. Anyway…..I’m loving the palm wallpaper in this image and the chevron stripe on the bath tub. It’s cosy eclectic :)

Ugh, my week is sooo busy I’d kill for a weekend away. Somewhere farmy and countrified (yes I’m aware that they’re not real words……) with fields and woods and a stream or a river, not fussy really. Yes, a lovely contemporary farmhouse to retreat to. Perfect.

So this isn’t typically the kind of thing I’d post but it stopped me when I came across it because of the composition and the light. I spent the beginning of the week photographing a project we just finished, working with a photographer we’d never used and it was thoroughly fascinating. I love styling shoots and analysing which angles to shoot from to best represent our work as a firm. You’d be forgiven for thinking I’d lost it based on the image above, but actually, this shot for me creates an important emotion. Intrigue - not to mention the natural light is absolutely lovely. I’m a very visual person and I see A LOT of interiors, so being able to create intrigue to further draw me in means you’re doing something right - even if it turn out that I don’t necessarily like everything about the rest of the work. This image hints at what this apartment could be and that’s really all that intrigue is. It gives you a glimpse of the potential.

A dash of colour to brighten your day! Better late than never I say :) this comes from Kelly Wearstler, the queen of pattern clash herself. I use the term “clash” in a good way. While I don’t always identify with her work I do admire what she has created. She is brave with her choices especially her use of colour and pattern. Bravo I say! we should all be a little more bold every now and then.

I’ve seen this image before but always from a different angle. It’s a great & creative use of old vintage gym mats. I have to say I’m rather liking the work that this creative duo Ashe & Leandro produce. They are sophisticated when necessary but still young and fun, which is refreshing!
So a bit of an iconic image for you today. Well - let’s say trend setting rather than iconic because I’m sure this was the image that single handedly made everyone want a black bathroom, muggins here included. Jenna Lyons was the creator - you know, the woman who also single handedly brought J. Crew back into the spotlight? Yeah that Jenna Lyons. The house in general has good bones but the choice of black? Ugh, I love it.
