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.
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.
Our living room01. April 2014
I realised that I haven’t really written many posts on our house and what we have done to it since moving in and renovating. I’ve posted about our bathroom revamp, but today I thought I would show you guys our living room and all it’s trinkets.
So here it is…
I want to live in an old church28. March 2014
Only in Australia or anywhere, but here do you get the opportunity to convert an old church into your living quarters. This beautiful church is the apartment of jeweller Tessa Blazey, her husband Steven Blick, the building has been converted into four units. Their apartment is one with the tower. Sigh.

These beautiful and intriguing illustrations are by Harriet Lee-Merrion who is a free-lance illustrator living in Bristol. I don’t think it’s very hard to see why I think her work is awesome.
