sweet morsels

Sweet morsels adorn the table of this home, to nurture all who take a seat. Here the owners have taken the time with the table setting, with lovely little touches. I am thirsty even looking at the water bottle!

19th-century rabbiter’s cottage

And then there’s the late 19th-century rabbiter’s cottage that has been rescued from its state as an office and turned into a gorgeous vintage-industrial home by fashion designer Claire Tregoning and cinematographer Tim Tregoning. They renovated it in “little blocks” over nearly three years and it probably didn’t hurt that a lot of the features in the home were designed by Claire’s brother-in-law, Rory Unite, who works as a furniture designer and artist. That amazing bed was created by Rory out of recycled timber and given a rustic charm with a few paintbrush coats of white. – Inside Out

natural living

This is Denmark living, a summer house designed in the natural material, timber pine. The predominate timber is in collaboration with both black and white. An all white kitchen and mezzanine space, works a treat. Further, the fraternisation with the use of black, not only to frame the windows to the front of the house, but from within you will find splashes of black in the selection of artworks, furniture pieces and the fireplace. Is there too much wood? I cannot say, without perhaps visiting for a time – but, from this distance, it looks lovely.

I feel giddy

A warning (!)

I felt giddy contemplating these visual images of the skyward sprawl of Hong Kong by French photographer and graphic artist, Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze.

“Vertical Horizon is a photographic journey between the buildings of a relentlessly growing city. It is a deep immersion into the city’s thick atmospheres and a visual record of its wildly diverse built environment. This book is like a contemplative dive into the raw nature of Hong Kong and an expression of its vertical elan.” - from Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze’s Vertical Horizon
