A little surprise for Li!

Posted on Sun, 18 Mar 2007 by midcenturyjo

At the time of posting it is very early morning in Canada (1.00am) and Li is fast asleep. I am wide awake on a Sunday afternoon (3.00pm) searching for images. And I found this. Li loves Eero Saarinen’s Tulip chair. Here’s a groovy retro shot just for you Li (and everyone else).

Ah Paris Hilton poor little rich girl. Most of you have probably seen this before but I want to know does she still live here? Has it been refurbed since? Pink, blonde, frilly, frivolous, expensive and at times classy. And that’s her villa. Paris is another story.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

A little touch of the Irish. Green, a colour much maligned but look again. Fun, offbeat and unexpected. Have a wonderful Paddies Day and don’t drink too much unless you really have to.

Woke up this morning Australian time , read my emails, looked at the stat counter…..and fell off my chair. Our hits had gone through the roof. Why? Because the wonderful Heather B. Armstrong had posted us on her iconic blog .

I squealed like a little pig with joy. Li did too when I told her. Thank you Heather. As a 6 week old blog we are overwhelmed by the support and encouragement the blogosphere is giving us. And a big thank you to all of you who read this little blog. It makes it all worthwhile to know that you like what we do. Now on with more room porn!!

Now he’s an amazingly talented designer with a celebrity clientele, a great portfolio and a where he showcases his work, reveals sources, helps with design questions and gives great advice. Here are some of my favourites from his portfolio. And don’t forget to click over to his . You’ll love it!
