Life… or something like it

I have to apologise for my lack of action in the blogging department of late. I have been doing some volunteer work at a local interior design firm run by Anna Spiro, whose blog Absolutely Beautiful Things has a cult design following. Check it out for some inspiration or just as procrastination.

I suppose you could say, after months of idle unemployment I have finally got myself a life, or something like it. I will try and post something more this weekend, but for now here is a little bit of inspiration for you.

Usually a lot of the design focused stuff that I post up here is girly or at least girl related because it’s stuff that I would want in my house/apartment when I eventually get one.

But, reading Lonny Magazine this week I came across this article on designing for guys. And, with a younger brother who will undoubtably need my design prowess in the future, I thought maybe I should look into it.

I love the mix of modern, retro and rustic with some kitsch thrown in for flavour. Even though it says it’s for guys, I want the cluster of giant light bulbs pendant light that hangs above the coffee table for myself.

Read the rest of the article at, part of the new trend of online magazines. These books are exactly like print magazines however they are fully constructed and read online. Plus they’re usually free!

So that’s your small bite of the design world for now. I promise to post some more in the near future. -C
