The next batch comes to us from flickr member tattywelshie, found in our Fresh New Spaces group. Some of the things I love about this space is the fearless yet restrained use of wallpaper, the mastery of blue (even in the fireplace), that the rest of the palette is clean and bright, the use of metallics and glass, and that tattywelshie believes in eco-friendly design and tries to design in an environmentally responsible way:

by the way, in case you weren’t impressed enough already, here is what the room looked like before:

Oh, this just in, tattywelshie has a blog right here. It looks like it didn’t get very far, so let’s hound him and make him share more with us on it!

A Dreamy Rental Palazzo in Florence

I was just flipping through Wallpaper* and caught a glimpse of Palazzo Bartolommei, a gorgeous penthouse apartment in Florence. I am getting the urge to return to Italy and this newly-redesigned space is causing serious daydreaming distraction. From what I can tell, it starts at 1000 Euros/night, but it has five bedrooms, a fully outfitted kitchen, a terrace (from which you can hear concerts at the nearby church) and marble bathrooms. Grab a bunch of friends and it can work out to 1000 Euros for the week!

Ilaria Miani has done a beautiful job on this redesign of this 17th-century space. Look closely at that steel trunk used as a nightstand in the photo above.

Find out who the freak in your group is by seeing who picks this bedroom as their first choice:

I’m going to try and do a few of these little flickr posts one at a time today. I’ve been catching up on some of marking some faves from our Fresh New Spaces flickr group. Here’s the first. I love this dining room from white owl remade’s photostream.

I thought the only thing I might add to it would be wallpaper, and then I saw this note by the picture:

my dining room… I keep thinking of wallpaper, but then I’m such a fan of white walls…

I suggest this lovely print as seen in Wyoming99!’s photostream:

Here is a larger shot of the print:

Do you think it will work? Do you have any other favorite prints that would work with that lovely black and white dining room? Do you know where that soapdish came from in the last photo? I love it!

Now that I’m finally addicted to Twitter, I found this great link over at dezeen via Paul Pincus. Be sure to check out the entire post for a ton of great exterior and interior photographs:

 

Long Tall House is a residential project in Tokyo, Japan, by Kagawa Takanori and Tappei Ito of Spacespace.

 

This is cool! Wallpaper* magazine has a interactive floor plans on the site. Check it out here.

Scrumptious journals by Patty Van Dorin that I will never be able to begin to rival over at decor8, as well as the South of France book:

Still laughing at the moggitgirls snark. Here’s a favorite from this week.

Got a “sneak peak” at the home of Meg Crossley, editor of Canadian House and Home magazine (a great glossy to pick up in these dark days of magazines folding) via Poppytalk:

I fear Twitter is feeding my increasing A.D.D. problem. I want all the information right now in 140 character words or less. With links. Feed me, feed me, feed me! I haven’t really read any blogs the old fashioned way since I joined, I just wind up following the ones I like and using their Twitter links. Hopefully the novelty will wear off soon, as I am late to the Twitter party anyway. I tried to figure it out back when Design Public joined and I had no idea what it was. Now I just want to do my Hatch blog posts in 140 characters or less. Is all this typing and photo insertion really necessary, or should I just “RT” all day long? I don’t know! Should I even bother to have real conversations with my friends, or just “@” them back on Twitter? Just how much more will my grammar deteriorate as I struggle to keep everything as brief as possible?

Fantastic Bart Prince Organic Architecture in Wallpaper*

Did you catch the post where I showed you Barbie Benton’s home, The Copper Palace in Aspen? I’m wondering if Wallpaper* caught it too, as the April issue is chock full of transcendent photographs of Bart Prince’s organic architecture. I LOVE this plan of this ambitious house (wow, can I really call it a “house?”). It looks like some sort of alien insect with a horn for a nose:

All I can think of when I look at that is that some masochistic drafting teacher in a foul mood might force his/her students to draft this:

This month’s Wallpaper* is a must buy. I’m so glad the magazine is cool and meaty again.
