omg adorable.

Papier mache is one of the sweetest, most delightful online children's magazine EVER. It makes me happy! You don't need to have a kid to enjoy this publication, but it sure makes me want to have one right now, peehee!

make good crafts + life

I have always been inspired by japanese craft books for their unique projects, cute hand-drawn simple to follow instructions and beautiful photographs. Now Make Good Books offer a series of the charming craft books in english! I am totally smitten by the baby booties and bluebird mobile in Felting for Baby. Head on over to their website for other sweet titles and free downloadable projects.

perfect sunny space

I first read about this french urban pad in realliving (oct'09) and just fell in love with the space... lots of white, high ceilings, concrete floors and the most perfect courtyard terrace. The bedroom, living and kitchen all look out into this sunny space! Lovely photography by Jean-Marc Wullschleger from living agency. See more of this lovely home here.

my little igloo

... how great is this little dome shaped desk? Ohhh and the white and blonde timber combo!!! Reminds me of those quiet study cubicles in the library, only hundred times more aesthetically pleasing. I would be inspired to get a lot of studying or creative thinking done in this. via roombysofie

UPDATE 25/11 - just found out this desk is a prototype by danish designer gamfratesi! they call it the 'rewrite'.

chair love #1

murakami chair by rochus jacob

alto stool by alvar alto

plastic side chair & lwc by eames

risom rocker by jens risom

A beautifully designed chair to me is one with simple clean lines and that you would never get tired of in a million years. Here are a few that make me go weak in the knees... pics found via chairwhore, a blog dedicated to... yes, nothing but chairs!

This is all I could think about on this scorcher of a day, or week. It could possibly be the hottest November in Victoria in over a century. I am dreading summer already, oh yes I am. Must stock up on frosty fruits tomorrow...

cooling off

This pigeon was spotted cooling off in a puddle of water on brunswick st, fitzroy. It was having a little bathe in there, not having a care in the world who was watching. It was, afterall, 33 hot degrees! Lunch at the little creatures dining hall was a nice experience too. They do really good pizzas. I must go back and have their mushroom/salami/mozzarella cheese pizza again.. just delish!

interior inspiration: bright whites

via dwell

There's nothing quite like the clean and fresh feel of bright white walls and uncomplicated designs. I'm particularly drawn to the last space with small pops of colour amongst the white... so lovely and refreshing.
