Hot off the press and the first time blogged on the web! I’m going to get all Dwell magazine on you with this one… are you ready to see a gorgeous contemporary home and workspace down south? Josh Merideth, owner of Bella Grace Studios, a photography studio in Kentucky specializing in couture bridal photography (he also photographs couples and residential spaces), wrote in today to share a very special home & office with us. How nice!
Josh is a daily reader and thought it would be a good place to premiere this gorgeous place on the web. Josh photographed the firm of De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop owned by Roberto DeLeon and Ross Primmer. In addition to their workspace, I’ve attached photos of the living space attached to the office — each separate loft belongs to these creative men – one for Ross and one for Roberto. So jealous! The firm has a constructed a “pole-barn” in downtown Louisville, Kentucky with a workspace on the first floor and two lofts above as you can see in the photos that follow. Impressive!
Don’t miss the painted rug effect above, I cannot stop drooling over this spectacular detail.
And now to view the lovely attached living quarters…This is actually two separate living spaces adjacent to the office. Each architect occupies one of these gorgeous lofts.
Yes, there is a real rabbit on the floor. And I love it. :)
So, what did you think of THAT? I’m still trying to lift my chin from my desk. Completely jaw-dropping!

My good friend Anne, who I hang out with when I’m based in Germany, just told me about her creative friend Kerstin who is a product and interior designer based in Hannover too. I’m really looking forward to meeting Kerstin in person when I’m back in Germany this year. She owns a new DaWanda shop called Domestic Candy that I really like, her things are so sweet that I have to share them with you today. I’m also including a peek inside of her craft room because I just love the space and the light in there.
Aren’t these things just delightful? Don’t you love the windows in her apartment? This is so common in Hannover to have big, huge windows — I just love it!

I was so excited when Shella Anderson wrote asking to share her home over at Cookie magazine, I immediately agreed and now it’s live over on the site in the House Tours section (look for the square that says Essex, England or link here).
Styled by Selina Lake and photographed by Sussie Bell, this home is so joyful and full of life — I can’t stop looking at all of the little nooks and details. I also love that Shella is NOT scared of color. If you have access to Ideal Home (UK interiors mag), you can find her home in their April 09 issue. I had the pleasure of interviewing Shella and so I asked about favorite things, the shops that she loves, what inspires her design, how she decorates for 3 daughters (and keeps things so neat!), favorite books… I’m sure you will really enjoy reading about her family of 5 right here.
