Inspiring Interiors - Aurora Artist Carlos Páez Vilaró was born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1923.He purchased a sea-front property on eastern Uruguay's scenic, then-desolate Punta Ballena, in 1958, building a small, wooden lodge that over time became "Casapueblo" ("House-Village"). The sprawling compound, a whitewashed cement structure reminiscent of Mykonos, was built in stages by the artist to resemble the mud nests created by the region's native hornero birds, and became his home, atelier and museum. Though he resided in Casapueblo - his "living sculpture" - by 1968, Páez Vilaró continued to add on the structure at his desire, at times adding a room for a particular guest. He later opened a section of Casapueblo to tourism as a hotel. So, the first photograph here is his creation "Casapueblo" in Uruguay.

Birmingham's Creative Hub Get out of town, The Custard Factory was built by the very man that invented custard over 100 years ago? You bet folks. Originally a 5-acre spread of factories built by Sir Alfred Bird (the inventor of custard don't you know), this lone warrior remains and is standing out proud in amongst the industrial drones surrounding it. Nathan Coley Nathan Coley (b.1967, Glasgow, Scotland) is interested in the idea of ‘public’ space, and his practice explores the ways in which architecture becomes invested – and reinvested – with meaning. Across a range of media Coley investigates what the built environment reveals about the people it surrounds and how the social and individual response to it is in turn culturally conditioned. Using the readymade as a means to take from and re-place in the world, Coley addresses the ritual forms we use to articulate our beliefs – from hand-held placards and erected signs to religious sanctuaries. Whether highlighting in illuminated letters the testimony of a New Yorker recalling the World Trade Center attacks or erasing the names of the dead from their gravestones, his work frequently turns the specific into the general, thereby testing its function as a form of social representation. Nathan Coley lives and works in Glasgow.

Maria's Farm Country Kitchen - Aurora by guest blogger Maya Rodale, author of smart and sassy romance novels I used to have a signature scent: It was Chanel No. 22 (the younger, lighter version of Chanel No. 5, whose ads now feature Brad Pitt). My daily spritz of perfume was such a part of moi that on the one day I forgot it, I popped into Sephora on my way to work for a free spritz, lest I feel incomplete. These days, I only use unscented products, but I still spend a lot of time thinking about scent. Characters in romance novels are always hankering after the hero’s or heroine’s scent, and it’s always said to be “indescribably male” or “essentially her.”
