I'm not usually a fan of nautical. I grew up in a resort town, ship's wheels and rope decor generally make me itch. Today's estate in Lake Country, British Columbia could change my mind. This home combines a nautical theme with modern architecture and the overall effect is worlds away from the local fish shack. This six-bedroom home has a great room with a huge round window, a canoe seems poised to smash through the center.

a selection of graphic projects
since 1997, the building sitting at the corner of 6th st. and howard st. in san fransiscio, california has been a sculptural mural. the piece consists of tables, chairs, lamps and even a grandfather clock, all hanging precariously out of the building’s windows. known as ‘defenestration’ (a word meaning to throw out of a window) the sculpture’s various pieces are all fastened to the abandoned building to create the illusion of falling. The pieces was conceived of by local artist brian goggin. http://www.metaphorm.org

I consider myself a very crafty person and love everything handmade. I'm always delighted to see how others use their creativity to transform everyday materials into something unexpected and beautiful. When I stumbled upon these lovely heart pieces in Bloesem I was immediately seduced by them, especially by their sculptural vive. These personalized handmade Hearts are the creation of Brit artist Veronika, founder of the design studio Sarah & Bendrix. The funny thing is that it all started with a piece she made for a friend as a wedding present and everyone started asking about the artist...and the rest is history.
If you drove by this house in Bedford, NY renovated by Alisberg Parker Architects you’d probably expect the interior to be chock full of traditional classics, right?
I love white decor in the home for a fresh and clean look. However, when bright colored home furnishings are added and used in the right proportion, they can certainly add charm and personality to any white room! As seen in this Georgian house in Stockwell, from the portfolio of UK-based location agency, Light Locations. I’m especially fond of the clawfoot tub and the blue rustic cabinet against the colorful vintage painting!
I have begun to meet up with several of my 555 residents to document some of their downsizing solutions. It has been so much fun re-connecting with them, touring their homes and having them share their downsizing stories with me. One of my favorite solutions that I have seen is the closet office! In a smaller living quarters, sometimes the office space is the first to go but with a little creativity, one can put that workspace back into the plan!
Color - Live Like You & Marmalade Interiors If you have followed this blog for a while you might be familiar with my line “Life is too Short for White walls”. Well ironically, or perhaps to test myself (?) the bungalow rental we are in for the next few months has…yes…only WHITE walls.
March 8, 2011 Coastal hallway Create a coastal feel with tongue-and-groove panelling, wicker storage baskets and crisp white walls. Flowers in a country-style jug keep the scheme fresh.
if you choose to live on your own as a young person (and i say this assuming that you don’t earn major bucks or perhaps you live in an expensive city – or both) you will probably be faced with the reality of renting a studio apartment. unless you’re an investment banker, or you won the lotto, or your granddad left you a sweet inner city pad the size of an ark that he bought back in 1950 for R500, or you’ve found some 3 bedroom palace with wooden floors and a working fireplace that’s being rented out for tuppence. if you’re one of those people, please don’t pity me. for i might be jumping on the studio flat bandwagon one of these days, and of course in lieu of that, the first thing i consider is HOW TO DECORATE. zach motl lives in a 178 ft² studio apartment in brooklyn. that’s 16m² folks… he’s an interior decorator, which explains why his flat looks the way it does. “the more stuff you put in a room, the bigger it seems”
