Herringbone Down Under

I've been doing some concept development on herringbone floors and The Bridge Room in Brisbane (Vogue Living Nov/Dec) fits the ticket.

The light to medium wood tone works perfectly with the cool undertones of the charcoal gray upholstery.

Hmmm, a trip to Brisbane perhaps?

Blue Skies, Blue Waters

I missed the snow last weekend in NYC and instead, had some rather pleasant weather here in London.  So guess what is now on my mind?  You got, the blue skies and blue waters of summer!  As we still have a ways to go, I'll indulge myself (and you!) with some of my favorite blue concepts...

Dining Room by Jeffrey Bilhuber.  
Library by Carlos Aparicio
Abstract Landscape series from photographer John Duckworth
Ceramics from Fleet Objects

On The Spot: Established & Sons Table, Bench, Chair-Bench

Doing a little internet surfing here in London and came across this great piece for any hallway.  Designer Sam Hecht solves all problems when you enter or leave ...a place to sit and a place for your keys and the mail.  Found on the mid century modern website Nest.  Enjoy!

Lifestyle - Homepage

London is a buzz within the decorating community this week: not only will the Winter Fair begin at Battersea Park tomorrow, but the viewing of the Christie's auction,The Collection of Will Fisher, will begin later in the week at the Jamb showroom on Pimlico Road.

Will Fisher is the founder of Jamb, an internationally recognized dealer of fine antique fireplaces and reproduction lighting, furniture and garden ornaments.  Jamb is moving locations on Pimlico Road and to ease the process, Will Fisher is having a single owner sale with Christies.  Viewing is available from January 28th thru the first of February at 107A Pimlico Road.  The auction is scheduled on February 2, 2012.

In the meantime, enjoy a few of my favorite reproduction items from Jamb!

On The Spot: Colefax and Fowler Zig Zag Column Lamp

Happy Monday!  I've decided to start a new feature to the blog called "On The Spot".  As I cruise the internet or walk the streets, I often come across things spontaneously that wouldn't necessarily require a comprehensive post ....thus, On The Spot.

For today, it is the Zig Zag Column Lamp from Colefax and Fowler ....just love!
