GIVEAWAY – Win a Graeme Bettles lamp

July 7, 2014

graeme-beetle-lamp

The awesome Graeme Bettles Design company from Cape Town mailed me a couple of days ago to tell me that they are sending Shangie one of their amazing ‘Sitting Lamps’ (first lamp below) for her new bedroom, which I’m super excited about. Graeme Bettles is a talented local designer who left his career in advertising to explore his creativity in furniture and product design and who is definitely making some very cool things to lust over. His latest design in his character lamp series is ‘The Shy Lamp’, which I also think is very cool.

But I’ll tell you what’s even cooler, Greame is not only going to send me one lamp, but TWO. One for our home and one for 1 of yours. And not only is it super easy to enter, but we’re randomly choosing the winner in swift time too. Next Tuesday the 15th of July I’ll let you guys know whose taking home either ‘The Shy Lamp’ or a ‘Sitting Lamp’, the choice is all yours.

Chiaozza

Chiaozza-2

Chiaozza makes quirky, fun furniture like colourful shelves, mirrors, birdhouses and some crazy plant sculptures. I wouldn’t mind some of these pieces in my house. And then when I was putting this post together I realised that I blogged about this couple’s super awesome loft apartment in Brooklyn last year sometime. They live in a space with built in cabins, it’s such a cool space, click here if you would like to have a look see.

Stockholm apartment

May 2, 2014

Just take a quick look at this damn fine apartment in Stockholm. How great are the high ceilings, wooden floors, huge windows, decor, checkered floors, furniture? Aaaaaa it’s like a pretty grown-up’s flat that wears pretty clothing and has a pretty face and a pretty job and a pretty life. Elgh.

Below is what the apartment looked like before this, it was till owned by the same person and it was nicely done up, but now it looks like it’s wearing a 24 carat gold Lindt chocolate bunny, if that makes sense. Of course it does.

Sorrento beach house

April 23, 2014

Share-Design-Inspiration-Blog-Sorrento-Beach-House-by-Shareen-Joel-Design-06

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.

Superfront

superfront_for_ikea_gallery_0251_2

How super clever is this idea from a company called Superfront in Sweden (obviously). Instead of throwing out old cabinets or cupboards in your house, why not give them a facelift? These guys have designed super cool exteriors and accessories that click over your old ones. All their fronts, handles and legs fit onto Ikea’s existing cabinet bases, which are the same cabinets that are used by just about every interior designer today, as well as those who hire carpenters to build expensive tailor-made accessories. Unfortunately we don’t have Ikea here, but I still think this idea is worth sharing, I think it’s super smart and so well designed.
