art: the amazing emma walker

My dear friend Emma never ceases to amaze me. Her latest series of paintings make me want to weep – they are beautiful and deeply personal. Having known her since we were teenagers and being familiar with her stories these paintings have so many layers to them. But they are also just purely beautiful all on their own. I feel so proud of her. Check the work out here.

object: florist

Or should I say sculptor. Sydney florist Claire Rabbit (yes that is her real name) is an artist. I got flowers from Flourish – her store – when I was in Sydney. There’s a great interview with her on Natalie Walton’s Daily Imprint.

interior: my brother

Sam Harris. My brother, my younger brother, is an amazingly skilled joiner (check out his work at Square Peg Woodworks). I am always blown away by Sam’s work and a recent project he did with Sydney architect Virginia Kerridge is no exception. It was a complete renovation of a house but it’s the library that I fell in love with. Amazing work…

house: that sam built

Sam Crawford sent me through more pics of the Newtown terrace – such a great reno. Not too sure about this gallery app on wordpress though! If you click on the images you’ll get a much better feel for the fine details in this project. I should also note that my lovely brother did the joinery on this project – check out Sam’s work at Square Peg Woodworks. He is a very fine joiner – as you can see from the pics below.

object: rugway

Alex Perry’s new rug design for Australian company Designer Rugs. He’s better know for his fashion label but I think these rugs are pretty cool…as are the black walls. I can’t wait til we aren’t renting anymore so I can try a black-walled room!
