This has to be the most gorgeous interior space I have ever seen! The finishes are so beautifully refined; the reflective aluminium aluminium wall is divine and the colour of the stools in the image below are the most perfect blend of pink. This is the truly amazing office of No Picnic in Stockholm designed by the very talented design duo Elding Oscarson. Extreme love!

This is one of my favourite homes of all time. It is how I picture my future house to be like (designed by my very talented husband of course!) I love the setting, the cantilever, its simplicity both interior and exterior. This is 'Casa no Geres' in Portugal designed by Corriea/Ragazzi Arquitectos.

I am quite liking theses new Skurar plant pots and hanging pots from Ikea and at only $9.95 Aus they are pretty affordable. I wouldn't mind hanging a few of these babies under our pergola..

Love, love, love this post today! I am completely enamoured with this one. It is the very stunning Capital Kitchen located in Chadstone, Melbourne. I think it is the graphics that does it for me and those gorgeous 'Caravaggio' pendant lights. What can I say but a trip over to Melbourne is definitely in store! Capital Kitchen is a retail homewares and food concept store by the the visionary catering company The Big Group and was designed by Mim Design (checkout their website, very talented!).

Today's post is some very gorgeous children's furniture designed by the very talented Ludovic Renson. The furniture range is titled 'playtime' and the loveliest thing about the pieces is not only the amazing design but the material palette that he has used - a combination of wood and felt. Stunning!

Happy Friday! Hope you are enjoying your day and looking forward to the weekend. Here is some home office inspiration for you today. I am now back working and spend some of my working hours from home. I would love to get our home office space looking as gorgeous as some of these. Enjoy..

I keep stopping to look at the photo of 'Trellick Tower' in my hallway that husband took when we lived in London. It really is an amazing piece of architecture. We had a perfect view of it out of our flat and it became a real symbol to us of living in London. I must admit though I was quite afraid of the tower and its status as a council house building. I would feel on edge everytime we walked past it to get to Portobello Rd, but it never failed to leave me with a sense of awe for the Brutalist architecture. The building was designed by Erno Goldfinger (love that name!) and completion of the building occurred in 1972. Trellick Tower is located in North Kensignton.

The top three photos were taken out of our flat window. Harrow Road is in the second shot.

Photograph in my hallway of Trellick Tower shot using slide film by husband. View is from the bridge over the canal on Great Western Rd

same view and film again. Nostalgic much??!

Finally someone has designed an energy saver globe worth looking at! These globes are by Plumen. Check out their website to see how the bulb works beautifully with most light fittings (also love the branding). Genius!

Could this be the world's most minimal and stunning bakery? The bakery is located in Osaka, Japan and was designed by the firm Ninkipen!. The baked goods are displayed on a beauiful silvery grey sleeper while the kitchen is behind an exposed concrete counter. The Japanese do minimalism so beautifully!

Check out this amazing home located in Denmark! Love the gorgeous furniture from the likes of Arne Jacobsen and Eames and how they add a splash of colour to the very monochromatic scheme.

So did you pick that it is actually a boat? See the image below! It was once a ferry that sailed between Jutland and Fyn in Denmark. The boat in now mored in Copenhagen with spectacular views of the harbour. Architect Nils Jeppe Hansen designed the boathouse and and allowed the orginial materials such as the raw riveted steel to mesh beautifully with the new elements.
