February 27, 2009

Check out this idea.  The owners of this home have made a feature by adding a false ceiling with spot lights and painting it a toning shade to the floor.  Perfect for homes with high ceilings!

Love a tranquil feel to your bedroom?  This bed raised on a plinth gives the impression it’s floating!  I’m told the plinth under the bed also offers some storage, too.

Hotel-style bathroom

February 26, 2009

Three things I love about this bathroom:

  1. A sky-light above the bath floods light in
  2. Glass clad walls reflect light and provide a sophisticated look
  3. A stone bath is just SO glamorous

The good, the bad and the ugly kitchen

February 26, 2009

THE GOOD – use of curved work surfaces creates more space in the kitchen

THE BAD – perforated kitchen units can’t be great for an easy wipe-down surface

THE UGLY – For me the colour of the walls and the floor is maybe a statement to far?

Barbie’s boudoir

February 23, 2009

I’ve just come across this story on aol.com.  Apparently Barbie is 50 this year – she hasn’t aged a bit!  To celebrate this land mark occasion Johnathon Adler has given Barbie’s bedroom a makeover.  I’m not sure it will be to Ken’s taste, but I’ve got a feeling Barbie is going to love it!

Loving low-level lighting

February 20, 2009

This is my kind of bedroom, cosy and atmospheric.  A pendant hanging ultra low is a great way to get that atmosphere.

Shell art

Before I saw this room I wouldn’t have looked shells stuck to the wall would look good – but I love this swirling display.
