I keep buying jugs and none of them are quite right. I have this dream that I can fill a jug with water and put it on the table and never have to fill it again – for a whole dinner party. Never ever happens. Do I need a bigger jug? I think this woodgrain one is wonderful…$58 from Terrain. Maybe I need two… Advertisements
I want more in my house. This space is so great…via Windy Days.
Their path’s may not have crossed on the big screen but rumour (via Daily Intel) has it that SJP is looking at Connelly’s amazing home in Brooklyn. Check out more pics at Curbed.
House tours. There was the eastside on Saturday and the westside on Sunday. You’ll have to go to flickr to see all my pics but Hidden House in Glassel Park was a favourite. The house is set on 7 acres and designed by Standard’s Jeff Allsbrook and Silvia Kuhle. It’s looks good in the photos but it’s an amazing space to be in. Not just the vistas so thoughtfully framed but the way the interior spaces flow into each other and into the outdoor areas. It feels good. More will have to come later. I had no idea just how much would be involved in having two kids on summer holidays. Not much room for blogging…
I am really enjoying the work of UK architect Simon Conder. His residential projects are thoroughly modern but have a warmth to them that is very beguiling.
