this house designed by christopher polly and located in australia is one of the cleanest, coolest use of space homes that literally opens up and feels as though you are living with nature. amazing work
interior designer charles de lisle is another one of my favorites, some of the highlights tend to be slightly over the top for me, but who does not appreciate the juxtaposition of these architectural elements and modern takes on design, i am strangely attracted to this space.
are you kidding me with this wallpaper? loooove it! anyone have any idea who makes it? i would so do my dining room in this wallpaper!!
today i opened my website to post on the blog and realized it is time to do some housecleaning. we have been in the new house 6 mos. and it is so very far from photo worthy, but is is due time to change up the photos. that coming soon, stay tuned!
hb and i are getting some work done on the house that was necessary and turns out will be a welcome addition to the upcoming fall and winter and as a result we are looking at paint colors and talking paint schemes. so without further ado here is a bit of inspiration.
this actually is not an inspiration photo of wall color but a wooden bed frame painted gold, loooove it!
i love these deep blue walls except i think they are a little too blue, i am thinking more grey in this same value or similar
i'd like to paint the kitchen a couple shades of grey on two of the walls that retain the original molding of the era
this is a little too dark
and this a little too light...thank goodness for valspars program that allows you to get a second color if you paint and are unsatisfied with the color. go lowes!
the everywhere project is a collaborative design project based on the song written originally about australia, then adapted to north america (and some s. america) and recorded by willie nelson and made famous by johnny cash. they are 92 luggage tags representing the locations named in the song. very cool project.
was just talking to a friend yesterday about flower bombing in the uk and how awesome it would be here around charleston, i am a huge fan of guerilla public art, this french artist is doing some awesome work,
good stuff! happy fourth er'body!
i am learning to try to bite off one big project per medium at a time. i get an idea for something and i immediately go to *multiples* (if i can do that one, then i should definitely do 2 or 3 others in a different size, configuration, etc). it does not matter what the medium is, i need variety so i consistently feel i must create just that.
i have a big jewelry project in the works, a new bike project on the horizon (YES!), and yet undisclosed new altogether medium project (multiples, of course, promises to reveal as developments are made), and now i should add this.
a piece of furniture for the entry that i can feel really good about. i have combed craigslist and found many suitable pieces for good and decent prices, but nothing that was inspiring so high time it is, i put my ideas to work......reclaimed custom piece of furniture for the entry that will wrangle all the odds and ends of our comings and goings.............my clutch and bag collection (such containment issues), reuseable grocery bags, margaux's leash and poop bags, john's......well, he's fairly orderly as is....okay something for all my daily baggage, and something that looks a lot like this.......
just the cabinet and definitely not the same screening, i have just the material in mind that has cut outs but won't reveal just how much crap really is inside....
ever since the hb and i moved into our house we have spoken about a fan in the master bedroom, well, finally a few weeks ago, i found what i thought was a steal and ordered a westinghouse 3 blade all metal industrial fan. i love the lack of chains hanging down and the somewhat outdated wall control is sort endearing. it goes up to 5 but 3 is plenty as far as i am concerned, this thing WORKS!
so, i called the electrician twice and he still has not returned my call, so yesterday when i was supposed to be riding and the weather was not having it (what is with all this rain this time of year?) i decided to try and tackle installation on my own.
well, low and behold we have a winner!! it's awesome, and i cannot stop admiring it. did i mention the fan cost $60.00?? yes, deal!
melbourne based architecture firm Six Degrees designed this space, i think it is super rad. would you live in this space?
it is my ultimate dream to renovate or live in an industrial space, this definitely feels like just that!
i apologize and agree, it has been a slightly rocky road of new addresses and links and other such whatnots to get here, but i promise (fingers crossed) this is the final move. phew, brow wipe.
i can assure you, website creation and domain changing and url, and DNS settings is not what my aim was in all of this, but i do have the wherewith all to know it will pay off, RIGHT??
onto better things, wouldn't you love to serve some sophisticated tea to your sweet elderly neighbor in these cups, i would!
they are so dainty badass aren't they??
