Copper is usually seen in lampshades, or crockery, or even a bath, but it never usually features in kitchens. These two photos are prime examples of why copper is such a great material to use. It bounces light like no other but also it’s easy to clean, modern and gives a room a sense of style. I love the way they have used copper pipes to hang their crockery on a truly inspirational setting. Funnily enough this metal is one of the only metals that is warm, steel and aluminium are terribly cold materials.

Are we the only ones totally in love with Bar Carts at the moment? Especially Brass Bars! There’s just something about the timeless elegance they bring to the table.
A snazzy Bar Cart to top off the look in your lounge is a must have. Whether you’re into collecting the finest of Whiskies or simply a Champagne on occasion kind of person; there’s a sense of 1950’s glam a Bar Cart introduces which every space desires.
Now that we’re approaching the festive season it’s not only time to jazz up your guest rooms, it’s time to enhance every corner of your space from the kitchen to… Well… The Bar Cart.
This season is all about the stand-out pieces.
Referring back to our ‘The magic of movement’ post – you really do not have to refurbish your whole entire space. You can simply elevate the stories in your space by making small alterations.
Ok, so we’re going a little off topic now. Spice up that Bar Cart if you’ve already got one. If you don’t; Raise the Bar and get your purchase on!
Have a look at West Elms Carts, they have a fantastic selection and believe it or not, IKEA also have pretty cool Bar Carts…Yep, we said it IKEA!
Doesn’t this Moroccan bathroom look divine?!! A simple yet effective construction around a bath, complete with a shower is an exquisite look. I gather they painted the surrounding grey concrete white to give a nice frame around the bath. Isn’t this what all sunday’s are made of? Bathing and wishing to bathe?!
Sydney based Luchetti Krelle endeavours to offer a total concept; this includes branding and identity design, customised furniture and fitting design, salvaging and appropriation and even sourcing site locations.

Imagine having this on your bedroom ceiling as a kid. This is what dreams are made out of, literally… His work is a whole new level of wavey garms. I actually believe that the new thing is having flooring on your ceiling.
This is a typical bachelor pad! Wooden floors and studio-styled place is a perfect way to explore your masculinity. Doing projects like these are actually my favourite. There’s so much to play with. But the simplicity in having a bed just on the ground makes this space feel comfortable and relaxed. The shimmery wooden floors complete this glossy look and make it that much smarter. Without the shine, I feel as though this could look grungy and rustic, more like an artisan’s studio. Electric curtains and windows finish this place off giving it a modern touch. What a beauty this is. Inspiration taken to the max. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Get stuck into making pieces for your home on the weekend or when you have free time. You can either buy ready-made stickers or paint murals and designs yourself. Remember to use special paint that won’t come off easily. They look quirky, fun yet also personal. So get creative this weekend and add personalise your furniture.
In the heart of Bali lies a beautiful resort that has been designed using a huge range of woods such as bamboo and wicker. Put a flame to it as you really will see colour, but thankfully we don’t need too as this place already has colour that resinates deep into the wood.
What an armchair can do to a space is absolutely incredible. You can literally go from having the most basic pad to a space filled with character, simply from the purchase of an armchair.
If furniture could talk, an armchair would say ‘I like to stand alone’. This particular piece doesn’t need to match your sofa and footstool. There are no design rules.
The proud piece enjoys standing out and being dissimilar. Look at it like this… Your armchair is the icing on the cake, the piece that you can go totally bonkers with.
The options are limitless these days. You can have a chair covered in such amazing fabrics like Sumptuous velvet or have an old chair upholstered in a sentimental fabric.
Everyone needs a good armchair, it’s a must!
Take a look at Jonathan Adler or Graham & Greens current range. Ohh and Prêt A Vivre also have breathtaking fabrics, perfect for upholstering.
