Well friends, my Wednesday is off to a less than stellar start. The first thing I do when I get out of bed is grab a cup of coffee and open all the windows for fresh air. Today, my luck had it that a big, unexpected gust of wind came through and knocked down my favorite lamp and big oversized mirror. Shattered to pieces - ugh.
Well, thank goodness for two things: first the guest post intro Sylvie wrote for my entry on her blog today. Thank you Sylvie - your words made me feel a lot better. If you have the chance, please pop over and check it out!
And secondly: Caitlin for introducing me to this gorgeous portfolio from ara Design Studio, founded by Sarah Davison in Australia. Caitlin's also featuring their work on her blog today.
Always interesting for me to study is that perfect balance of being streamlined without being bare. Take one thing out and it feels empty, add something in and it's too much. It's such a fine line and ara does it perfectly.
A room that feels light and airy despite all the dark colors and heavy side wall. I love the play between substantial pieces like the leather armchair and wispy things like the wirey side table. Together they are lovely.
I know I'll be adding this portfolio to my favorites! Did you love it too?
Now...off to go source new lamps and mirrors - ugh!
