A House In Australia

Lately I find my self to love the australian deco style. Like this beautiful and moody house near Castlemaine in Victoria that belongs to Luke Mortimer. He loved the place, built a house and named it Grey Gardens

He rents the place to couples that look for the perfect refuge from the busy noisy town. In his blog he shares his deco adventures! 

Most of the furniture are flea market finds or even street finds. 

I absolutely love the drum-nightstand! The art above the bed is actually an embroidery made by his grandma.

Well …no! These beautiful colorful photographs by Jack Long are actually high speed photographs of colored water! They are captured in a specific way to mimic the shape of blooms, leaves and  pots. Each photograph from Vessels and Blooms series is captured in a stunningly precise way that took months of trial and experiments. He created cocktails of dyes, thickeners and pigments for each component of the shot and then blasted them through a customized mechanism before snapping a perfectly timed capture. You can see much more of his work on Flickr and 500px.

Paintings By Lara Merrett


 Lara Merrett  was born in Melbourne but grew up in Sydney.  A trip to New York at the tender age of 16 ignited in her a passion for fine art. Later, study trips to both Spain and New York cemented this passion. She  studied painting at Sydney’s College of Fine Art where she received a Bachelor and Masters of Fine Art in 1997.  After completing her studies she won a scholarship to undertake a residency in India in 2001.  We can see this influence in her works, which are created intuitively in inks, acrylics, vinyl and metallics, using intense layers of colour. After some time spent living in Melbourne she is now based again in Sydney with her family.
