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.

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- angie@wolves.co.za

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.

Porcelain dishes covered in hordes of hand-painted ants by Evelyn Bracklow04. April 2014

These one-of-a-kind vintage porcelain dishes covered in loads of hand-painted ants are created by the genius hands of German artist Evelyn Bracklow of La Philie. The minute detail that makes up each ant and covers each plate is crazy. I really like these pieces, they make my skin a bit itchy, but but my face super smiley, if you know what I mean (I know you do).

- The idea for this work resulted from pure chance, when the sight of a carelessly placed plate—by then wandered by ants—fascinated me so much that I felt the urge to simply conserve this image. Fear, disgust, fascination and admiration: this very interplay of feelings constitutes the charm of the work. Furthermore, to me, the ants symbolize all the stories that any formerly discarded piece of porcelain carries with it. Where one once dined and drank, today ants bustle in ever new formations, every single one applied with a great love for detail.

House for mother02. April 2014

This beautiful house-to-be is called “House for mother”, it’s a work in progress with construction starting in August 2014. The project is located in Linköping, Sweden, and is part of the Linköpingsbo 2017 housing exhibition.

I think it should be called “House for Angie”, but  that’s just me. I really like how they’re going to divide the different living spaces in two by using dark and light colours, very very cool. I also really like the high A-frame ceiling, my dream house has a roof just like this.
