Mmm, I love the touches to the hallway and to the office, especially those old maps hanging on the wall. It's a nice blend of neutral and dark textures and colour. This blog is pretty fun to scan through too, lots of inspiration for home decor and what you might be able to do with your home!

Located in Finland, these igloo-like hotel rooms look really interesting and beautiful nestled in the landscape. I'd imagine with these glass dome ceilings, that if you were to be there when the aurora borealis lights up, it would be absolutely spectacular!

Love the subtle colours of these two kitchens. The grey kitchen is my favourite out of the two, but that's because of that nice table that seats 8 and that wonderful, slightly imposing light fixture that frames the space. I would love to have a table like that, seat all of the family at once and be a big work area when needed!

By Esrawe Studio. This apartment is a nice mix of aesthetics and multi-use spaces. I do love the open concept paired with lots of natural light and views to the outdoors. All the spaces just flow into one another, like they should.
Love the delicate details of these stackable rings, as well as the gorgeous blue stone. While I don't wear anything really beyond my wedding ring for practical reasons, this would be great for everyday wear and just a touch of femininity.

It's inspiring to see architects take a challenge and make a sustainable, modern spin on how we live our spaces and how we bring those outside places into where we live. These are interesting and functional examples of his work.

Hmmm. An idea for 2012, to see what kind of progression I will have with my photo taking skills and quality as I delve into the world of digital SLRs. I think I may have to challenge myself in that way! I think it will be neat to look back on it after the year is done and see what I have accomplished...

I love this idea of creating a space with semi-glass walls. Some flexibility built in and separation for some seriousness for work without compromising the light and the space.
Pretty tired today and slow on the motivation front, will continue the posting tomorrow.

Love these pictures by Sharyn Cairns, reminds me of the short days of winter that are currently upon us. It's moody, well worn, practical and reflective. It reminds me that even of the cold days, we can sit and still work hard in the kitchen, creating things that will help us through the winter.

These are beautiful, so expansive with their windows and ceilings and a great place for conversations! If only we could build with such windows in a cold climate like we have. Ah well, at least some of these elements could be translated into my home if I have the time this winter!

Love the styling of this, I could imagine this in my home as a side table for the bedroom or even in my office! It would be great for storing things that I don't use often - jewellery, scrapbooking stamps and materials, even for winter clothes!

This seems like an interesting idea to try... I haven't experimented with sparklers in photography too much, but this could be fun. Long exposure on a tripod, with the couple staying very still and someone run around them with a sparkler. I wonder what can be done to reduce the ghosting of the person running around though...

This and the ones following the link are interesting and inspirational for what I might want to do for a tattoo eventually. Though I love the high contrast black ink, I'm thinking in perhaps white ink just to make it more subtle, especially if I still work where I do. May have to try the idea posted in the link about temporary tattoos to get an idea for placement.

I really do love the look of all of this put together. I think in my case, I would have to go with a nice mid-tone grey sweater. Not really one to wear white myself, I think I only have 1 white button down in my whole closet! The shoes and the bag really seal the deal here for me!
