Our kitchen23. September 2014
A couple of people have been asking me to do a post on our kitchen and this morning whilst I was in there slurping down some ice-tea, I decided to whip out the old camera and do just that.
As you can see from all the photo evidence below I like kitchen stuff, glasses, jugs, jars, teacups, cookbooks, mixing bowls etc etc and luckily for us slash me, not Shane, I have lots of nice open shelves to display some of the stuff I have been collecting over the years.
So I hope you enjoy my kitchen tour, while I head on back to my baby bear who is in search of her own version of ice-tea.
Cool spaces10. September 2014
Was looking around this blog today and I came across 2 homes that I think are just too cool. The first one is in Amsterdam and is filled with all sorts of souvenirs brought back from the owner’s worldwide travels. This little place is right up my alley, I love homes that are filled with memories and trinkets, a space that looks like it’s been lived in and enjoyed.
The 2nd one is located in Sweeden and it’s slightly less quirky, but still so nicely decorated with bits of modern and vintage touches. The kitchen is my most favourite part of this space. Nice nice nice.
I need to do another post on our home, haven’t showed you guys our bedroom yet. Yes, I will do that room next!
This second home is located in Sweden.
Northcote warehouse27. August 2014
I absolutely love this big open Northcote warehouse, which has been converted into a home. It’s filled with wonderful art, colour and amazingness.
These images comes off one of my most favourite interior blogs – The Design Files
Jersey Ice Cream Company18. July 2014
Came across this site called Jersey Ice Cream Company, who do the complete opposite of what their name suggests (already I like them). Now at first glance you would think that I was going to show you drool-worthy pictures of creamy, creamy ice-cream, but instead I’m going to show you the cool transformations that the 2 ladies who run this interior design studio have come up with. Yip, they take boring looking rooms and make them into something special and pretty damn awesome, according to me. Below are before and after shots of some of the spaces they have worked on. Love all the reclaimed wood and the idea of keeping some of the original textures in the room, like the exposed wallpaper, flooring, concrete walls and ceiling beams. Also love the black and white kitchen, if you’re looking for design inspiration for a non-traditional revamp, you’re going to like this post, but if beige tiles, off-white walls and anything tinged Tuscan is your thing, then rather give it a skip-a-roo.
- We are Tara Mangini and Percy Bright, a full-service interior design duo who love to travel wherever there’s a space begging for a transformation. Every space holds its own unique opportunities. Old houses are filled with secrets, little clues that lie hidden for years. The only thing better than rescuing them from layers of wallpaper, paint, and carpet is weaving those stories together with fresh ideas, creating spaces that feel new but instantly familiar. Though empty white boxes lack similar stories, they carry with them a certain sense of freedom. When a history doesn’t already exist, it’s ours to create.”
Portland loft23. June 2014
This amazing loft is at the top of a one-story, nondescript industrial building located in Southeast, Portland. It’s an energy-efficient space and even though it’s very modern and clean, which is nothing like our home that we live in, I would move into this space in a heartbeat. It occupies the top floor, so it has a wraparound rooftop garden and windows for days. Sigh. So beautiful.
