West End Wonder

Check out this hallway. It's the grand entrance to a flat in Kelvingrove in the West End of Glasgow.
I came across the designers on Friday when Sebastian and I took a mooch around the Homes & Interiors Scotland exhibition in the SECC. Rehab's two interior showcases were among some little nuggets of tremendousnes at the exhibition. This hallway doesn't even represent their true style (new and retro furniture restyled & upholstered in awesome colours and fabrics), I just love the architrave detail.
Don't you think that when a space is dressed with a pair of matching table lamps it immediately looks 'grown up'...?

Blue Hues

One long space. Sleeping space-bookshelf partition-living space-glass paned partition-work space. Combine that concept with funky furniture, beautiful blue hues and some traditional architectural features and you have a pretty perfect pad.

Not sure how much work I'd get done with that slightly distracting canvas on the wall...hello.

Every time I visit iiiinspired I click on this post and stare...what a space!

I once heard that, according to feng shui, cacti in your home, can cause jaggy arguments...I wonder how their chi is...

Wary Mears Wares

I've blogged about this creative couple before. Wary Mears are an upcycling phenomenon! Their projects are pretty awesome...
If you happen to find an old canoe or an Eames chair in a skip, why not give it a wee spruce up with a pattern, hand painted on, inspired by British textile designer, Celia Birtwell?
'Naturally', I hear you say...

...whatever you do to them you probably wouldn't expect them to look as cool as this...and you'd probably never think to hang them from the ceiling in you Portland apartment...well, I wouldn't anyway.

You'd expect to see warm cosy images in catalogues come the Autumn but I love the cool palette in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Home collection from Toast. It seems mild mustard yellows, fetching frosty greys and cool teal blues are where it's at...
Check out the rest of the catalogue here

Bold, Busy and Beautiful

This space may have light, colour, furniture, and pattern in abundance, but the architecture makes it...I'm a sucker for symmetry.
