Sorrento beach house23. April 2014
This beautiful, light and bright space is a weekend retreat that belongs to Melbourne interior architect and designer Shareen Joel. I love everything about it, the openness created by the natural light and use of white and timbre floors and then the darker spaces too, like the bathroom and outside shower. It’s situated near the beach and I can only imagine that it’s surroundings are as beautiful as this little holiday nook.
Après Ski23. April 2014
This beautiful jewellery range called Après Ski is made by Lucia Vergara, a designer based in Barcelona. I have blogged about her pieces in the past and even own one of them, which I absolutely love. So yesterday I thought I would go see what she has been up to since the last time I fawned all over her work. She didn’t disappoint me, once again.
I’ve chosen some of my favourites off her site, but there are so many more to get excited over, so do check them out. I think the first 3 below are my favourites. Love love love.
Berg an exhibition by Martin Rossouw22. April 2014
Martin Rossouw’s work is till up at Wolves, it’ll be there until the end of the month. There are some really nice pieces and what’s cool is you can buy them individually or as a set of 3 and the idea behind this show is idea is simple and fun – He’s drawn a mountain, who lives in the mountain and what a small piece of their home inside it looks like. These are all priced super well too, framed they are R450, unframed R350 and for a set of of 3 framed you’re looking at R1100, which is nothing. They’re a nice size too, bigger than an A4 but square is shape (these are not all the prints, there are quite a few more).
Let me know if you are keen to buy any, there are 5 limited edition prints of each, obviously some have more prints left than others- firstname.lastname@example.org
Really nice, open but compact apartment.17. April 2014
I really like this neat and really nicely designed apartment by Russian architecture and design firm INT2 architecture. Everything is so tidy and well thought out and I love the patterns, textures and wood touches they’ve used here and there.
Japan you are my favourite.16. April 2014
A few months a go Desmond and The Tutus went on their second tour of Japan and this time around Anna-Belle and I got to go with for the last couple of shows and then we spent a good while there exploring the city and basically falling in love with everything about it.
Whilst I was there one of the guys showing Desmond around introduced me to such a cool app called RoadMovies – how it works is, you film 1 second clips and it pieces them together for you to make a 24 second clip. So you can sum up a whole day in 24 seconds, it’s really awesome. I took a a whole bunch of videos like this and yesterday I spent pretty much my whole day chopping them up and editing them back together to form one long movie to one of my most favourite songs. I actually got quite emotional yesterday, because Japan has really been one of the best holidays and cities I have ever been on/to and I don’t think we’ll ever go back there and if we do it’ll never quite be the same…which is cool, that’s what’s memories are for I guess (insert smiley face here).
So here’s my video, hope you guys enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it. I also thought I would include some Instagram photos I took that I didn’t post here.
Ps: Japan I miss you.
