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

Today I thought I would share some of Nina Torr’s work with you. She is a local South African artist that is one of my most favourite illustrators around. She has exhibited at Wolves a couple of times, as well as at a quite a number of other gallaries. She has a solo show coming up really soon and I’m going to make sure I’m first in line for it! I’ll let you know when it comes around, but for now enjoy some Nina magic.

- Nina Torr (AKA Andy Wyeth) is a Pretoria based illustrator/artist. She earned a BFA in Fine Arts from Parsons the New School for Design in NY in 2010 and is currently teaching illustration at The Open Window in Pretoria.

Gourmet Traveller23. July 2014

Found this site today that has loads and loads of flipping delicious looking recipes on it.They are even categorised, so if you are in the mood for say, dumplings or potatoes, vanilla flavoured things, Japanese, pasta or say, cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, then you’re all sorted. You just click into the different sections and off you go.

Speaking of cheesecake doughnuts with salted caramel, I will literally pay someone cash-money to make these sons-of-bitches for me and then bring them to my house – you will also be expected to feed them to me, a thank you.

Anyway, if you’re stumped for what to make for supper or more importantly dessert, check this site out, I seriously doubt you’re going to regret it.

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.”

Joanna Concejo08. July 2014

Joanna Concejo is a Polish illustrator who creates such imaginative and whimsical drawings. Her characters are playful and a little off-centre and I really like her delicate style of drawing.

- Joanna Concejo is a children’s book illustrator whose work is published in France, Italy and Spain. She’s originally from Poland, but currently lives in France where she spends her time drawing and bringing up her children. 

My main influences have come from childhood. I was brought up in the countryside with a grandmother who told stories in such a marvelous way that I’ve always had the desire to make things up. I was also surrounded by women who worked with their hands, whether embroidery or knitting, and I had an aunt who loved drawing.
