I stumbled upon this restaurant via the Restaurant and Bar Design Awards. I find Lolita so charming, don’t you? It is located in Ljubljana, Slovenia and designed by Trije Arhitekti. The pale hues, chevron flooring, ceiling graphics and oh, just about everything are so perfect together. I hope they win!
I found this post at The Veda House and I oh-so-wished I lived there! Elisabeth Heier‘s home might actually be one of my favourite houses yet! It’s beautiful yet simple and every object has a place. The bold hits of graphics on white walls and furniture, the concrete and the wood posts and beams are absolutley stunning. A++!
I’m obsessed with these lights. A simple rod and bulb similar to the one below goes for approx $600, which is a little extortionate if you ask me, but man…these are great!

I absolutely love London designer Phil Cuttance‘s Faceture project. He has built a machine to cast faceted vases, lamps, and the list goes on. It consists of pouring a water-based resin into a simple mould which hardens as it dries. If these images weren’t pretty enough, there’s is a video! Click HERE to see it, it’s so much fun!

While I’m feeling quite chipper as usual, these are some spaces that could hold a different tune. I love the dark rooms – there is something moody, dignified and mysterious about them.

My gosh is it ever getting cold outside. I don’t do well in these condition, friends. I’d rather stay bundled up inside and have some poor soul go fetch my things from the outside world. Unfortunately this utterly unrealistic. Next option is to have quick heating methods. Such as a fireplace. Where you’ll find me sitting about 1 foot away until my skin starts to burn. Will you join me? I also have hot chocolate with mini marshmallows. Yum!
I love this tiny little cabin designed by Olson Kundig Architects on San Juan Island in Washington State.
Only 500 sf, it is surrounded by wildlife and a great view, and when needed, it can be closed up tightly by the surrounding decks. A kitchenette, bathroom, a beautiful seating area, and a rotating fireplace is really all you need to get the creative juices flowing.
The cabin is five hundred square feet and is a private writers retreat and guest cottage. Located on San Juan Island, Washington, the owners wanted the cabin to feel contacted to its setting, the climate, the wildlife and views. They also needed a structure that could be easily secured when not in use. Perfect!

This home featured in Inside Out is so nice, not to mention the backyard, the dark grey hues with touches of green, wood and cozy fabrics. I’d move in in a second!

I have, from the get go, been a fan of clustering picture frames. So many options, whether symmetrical or asymmetrical, mismatched or matched, it always makes a perfect statement, and often, an art piece of its own.

I would love to have a spiral staircase in my home one day, especially if it’s in a loft space. They’re so fun, don’t you think?
