Paolo's Tasty Tasty

Found on Yatzer, Taste by Paolo Navone for porcelain manufacturer Reichenbach. The delicately beaded edge is delicious indeed.

Magdalena Bors

I'd forgotten what a good blog Designers Block UK is. Found on her site, the work of young Melbourne artist Magdalena Bors, who strangely enough went to my alma mater.
Her work has all the elements I'm attracted to.
Domestic. Craft. Curiousness. Detachment.
I think I want one on my wall.

An American in Paris

Jeff Koons as artist I have doubts about, but Jeff Koons as entertainer always promises to be controversial. People protested to have his work removed from Versailles during his retrospective show (which ended December 2008). I think they were missing the spirit of things... Sun Gods are partial to frivolity and irreverence after all.

Colours I Can

Note to self about achievable colour schemes for my new living room. Wood floors - check. Neutral sofa - check, which is surprisingly unboring when paired with neutral rugs. Green sideboard - oooh. Muted but not boring.

Another way to do it is to colour coordinate with your cat. This little black and white cutie's purpose in life is to pose with greek keys. Mine is grey so something like the above might be called for. Added bonus - cat hair camouflage.

I believe the top two images are from the soon-to-be-no-more Domino mag. Cat images are from The Paris Apartment, a plethora of inspirational (yet achievable) interiors.

Jun's Seriously Chairs

Found on adorable blog Tiny Candy, a reference to Jun Ichihara's whimsical illustrations of classic chairs. Unfortunately the JI site is totally in Japanese so I can't find out more about them.
Butts and berets

Akira's Capers

Akira Isogawa the brand is the perfect product of a Japanese-Australian aesthetic. Akira Isogawa the man might be the designer talent of the decade. Akira presented his Printemps Été 2009 collection in Paris in early October 2008. Selected garments will be in-store late February / early March 2009. Do I detect a direction that says "cape-ish"?

An Autumn-Winter 2008 look below. If I could do it over again, this would be my wedding dress. The cape would have helped in the 6 degree weather I ended up having on the day. It was summer. Sheesh.
