House built out of Recycled Shipping Containers

11.29.2013

Original design using recycled or up-cycled items holds a place near and dear to my heart. I have already posted the Starbucks location that was made out of recycled shipping containers here but this house, located in Graceville Australia, is the first of it's kind. Designed and built by Todd Miller of Ziegler Build, this house is Todd's own house and has a wide range of advantages such as being cyclone proof. Check out his interview on how and why he built this house here

White + Wood Kitchen and Dining room

11.28.2013

There's something about white combined with wood that I just love. I can never get enough of it.

Indoor Outdoor Dining room

11.27.2013

I love rooms like these where you see as much of the outdoors as you do of the indoors. Makes me feel like I'm outside even though I'm not. The oversize black pendant light combined with the natural wood table and white chairs is simply divine as is the original artwork and tribal patterned fabric. Quite the mix but a good one.

Blast from the Past

11.25.2013

I came across this picture (this place is gorgeous by the way) on desire to inspire and recognized the chairs but I couldn't believe it. They were the exact chairs that I had in my very first apartment. I didn't have much money and so I didn't have any living room furniture. One day the superintendent came to see me and said that someone had split and left all their furniture and would I like to come and see it. Well there it was, an entire set of foam chairs like the ones above. Of course mine were nowhere near as sexy as those in the picture, they were brown tweed if I remember correctly but they were awesome. I covered mine in red and they really rocked.

Jim Datz Prints of New York

 

I love these Jim Datz prints of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Since I visited both of these places during my recent trip to New York, I only wish that I'd seen these prints sooner so I would've known where I was going! I think I may pick them up for my Studio as a nice reminder of my trip.

Industrial meets Rustic: Kitchen

11.19.2013

I fell on my butt when I saw this photo and immediately pinned it to my Rustic Pinterest board - yes, I admit it, I'm a pinaholic! I just can't get enough of these beautiful images......
This kitchen has all the elements I love; rustic beams, industrial accents, whitewashed wood floors, a stone wall, a concrete island and black & white artwork. Did I mention that it is also Gray!

Diamond Light

A light shaped like a diamond and completely clear is a light I can get into. I'm still trying to track down the creator but here is where I found it.

Photographer Lucas Allen - Part 1

11.14.2013

I absolutely love big windows especially when they are loft like and black. Photographer Lucas Allen has captured the mood and the outdoors perfectly in this bedroom. I don't know if I would be able to have the bed positioned that way though. I'm sure I'd want to see that awesome view!  
Just around the corner we find the dining room with an even better view if that's possible. Talk about bringing the outdoors in! I absolutely love it. I had wanted to do something like this to my home but was unable to so now I live vicariously though photos like these!

Christmas Cookies

11.13.2013

One of my favorite Christmas traditions is baking cookies. I dig out my mothers old recipes, put on some Christmas music and bake until I run out of butter. Another favorite Christmas tradition of mine is eating those same cookies. I mean who can resist right? Last year a few of my friends got together to bake cookies and made gifts out of them. Each friend baked a different kind of cookie and then they were all put together in a gift box. Let me tell you I was one happy camper when I got one of these cookie laden gift boxes as a present. What an awesome gift! Cookies can also be used as decorations. Check out this Christmas cookie wreath......sorry I got distracted, those tarts are calling my name!
