Top Brass in the kitchen

This striking kitchen designed by Blakes London is a beautiful study in contrasts. Slick modern cabinetry and clean lines juxtapose with worn rustic wood furniture and an old fashioned stove. A large moody dark wall shows off the bright, mirrored brass backsplash and contrasts with the off white walls and cabinetry. There is even a mix of two different tones of brass - in the pendants above, more warm and antiqued; and on the kitchen island and backsplash, more sleek and shiny. This combination of features come together to create a space that is both unique and very interesting, difficult to pin down to just one style or time period.

Listed: A simple black + white apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden

I never get tired of a simple, natural space in black and white. Of course, no better place to look than in Sweden. This Gothenburg apartment is simply styled and understated throughout. All white walls and decor, with warm wood and accented with black throughout the space, with the exception of two bright posters in the dining area. This simplicity keeps the space feeling soothing and tranquil.

Abstracted Landscapes by Jessica Bell

Vancouver, British Columbia based artist Jessica Bell's mixed media series 'Landscape on birch panels. Their abstracted forms and mixture of textures  create a feeling of depth and light. She has a beautiful sense of colour - the combinations are a little unexpected but work so well together. Would love an oversized version of one of these with a white matte and a natural wood frame.
