What a wonderful family home, full of light and a life well lived. Children and music and friends and entertaining. A kitchen as the centre of it all and everywhere a casual sense of style. Long time reader Kimberley and her husband Adam have sadly sold this house and moved on but Kimberley assures me that it is to another renovation adventure. So without further ado I present to you a wonderful Australian home, the Baudelaire family home.
P.S. You can see before and afters here.

Posted on May 18th 2013, 02:26 AMCan you believe these are 3D generated images? Looks just like real photos to me, and very beautiful ones at that, depicting a classic Parisian apartment. The project is called Baron Haussman, after the Haussmann era which inspired the creation of the images. I'm especially impressed with the textures and lighting in the close-up of the marble fireplace in the third picture, but really the lighting and textures are outstanding in all the images.Images: Bertrand Benoit

Berga is a Swedish manufacturer producing outdoor furniture. But that’s not saying the furniture couldn’t also be as good indoors. The Jakarta sun bed is hand woven by craftsmen in Indonesia. It’s lightweight, it’s comfortable, it’s sporty. And it’s water proof (rain goes right through).
