Do You Remember?

Speaking of food inspiring room design, do you recall this post that appeared on decor8 a few years ago? It’s called I Dream of Cake where I matched cakes to some of my favorite rooms. This is one of my favorite posts on decor8, I still reference it for inspiration today.

Cherry Blossoms, a touch of black, a pop of pink, delicate china, altogether gorgeousness.

I think everyone should try this once in their life, pairing food with rooms because it’s a fun creative exercise and I’m all about getting those creative juices flowin’.

Happy Weekend! {and video}

It’s Friday afternoon and time to wrap up and go about our weekend activities but I discovered something over at Pia’s blog that cannot be missed! InFrame TV is a video channel for creative types worldwide and they produce short videos in Melbourne, Australia profiling, “original and arresting Australian and international talent working in arts, design and culture.” Their goal is to, “provide unprecedented access to the thoughts, insights, and inspirations of people who create”.

One of their videos that I particularly loved spotlights decorator, shop owner, and collector Lyn Gardner. If you recall, I showed you a glimpse of how Lyn lives here. I’m a huge fan of her work so seeing her live, touring viewers of her lovely shop, really inspired me today and I know you’ll love to watch this 4 minute video below.

I’m taking Monday (Presidents Day) off, so I’ll meet you here on Tuesday, February 17th. Enjoy your long and loving weekend. hubba hubba. (image from living and more magazine, germany)

Francine Zaslow Photography

Driven by self expression over trends, Boston photographer Francine Zaslow has a welcoming and beautiful online portfolio sharing her work… pages to turn, buttons to click, and music with a very hip lounge vibe making the experience transporting and relaxing. I recognized some of her work instantly from catalogs and websites like Fresh and Mariposa.

Fashion, food, interiors, it’s all there and completely inspiring. What a lovely site to get lost in on a Friday morning.

Loftlife Magazine

I came across this jaw dropper of a loft today on Loftlife magazine and nearly died. Badda bing! Can you imagine living like this? Sheesh.

This is the loft space of interior designer Andrew Flesher who loves to mix in antiques and vintage finds into his contemporary in Minneapolis. Soaring 13-foot-high ceilings, white concrete floors and an entirely open floor plan, his traditional upholstered pieces look beautiful combines with his vintage treasures. Gorgeous. See more here.
