Carlos Páez Vilaró | 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. So, the first photograph here is his creation "Casapueblo" in Uruguay. The following photographs are of his house called Bengala (after the Bengal Tiger) in Tigre, Buenos Aires in Argentina. In the circular living room the light coming from the roof reflects on the bronze artwork above the fireplace. This is the domed ceiling in the living room.

Decorating with blues and white | Inspiring Interiors - Aurora A very, very Happy New Year to all of you! Have you made your resolutions yet? I haven´t. I have never, ever made a New Year resolution. On this first day of our brand new year I´d like to show you a selection of rooms in blues and white and maybe a touch of another colour. I have posted this pic before, but it´s worthy of showing up many times. Ok, Alec, I think these slipcovers are cute, but why, oh why didn´t you iron them before taking this picture? Love these iron twin beds. Light blue in this and next pics spells summer, and beach, and sunshine. What do you think about the lampshade having the same stripes as the pillows? Stripes, dots and flowers. Love the arch of the window. I like the blue and white vases and jars but those chinese figurines scare me. Orange and blue?
Rum and Cane Spirit Festival Artists | 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. Nathan Coley lives and works in Glasgow. In 2015 Coley will be included in the House Festival, Brighton (2–24 May) and the Bruges Triennial (20 May–18 October), and will have a solo exhibition at The New Art Centre, Salisbury, UK.

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. In real life, though, we often cover up that magical, powerful scent with Black Raspberry Vanilla shampoo, Coconut Lime Verbena conditioner, Honey Autumn Apple soap, and Spring Breeze–scented deodorant, none of which is likely to contain actual black raspberry, vanilla, lime, autumn apples, or spring breezes. Skin moisturized with vanilla-scented lotion doesn’t taste like vanilla; rather, it has a chemical aftertaste that is decidedly not sexy. Instead, I use actual sugar and actual coconut oil.
