Wanting: Sexy Thermostat

December 5, 2012 § 2 Comments

Nest

The newest in thermostat innovation… a week after installation, it programs itself! And it aims to help you save energy (note the cute little green leaf on the screen). The Nest Learning Thermostat stores and compiles information on your energy use and then creates a schedule customized for you – you never have to worry about heating or cooling your home when it’s empty. And when you are away, you can monitor all of this information from your cell phone. Want to save up to 20% on your heating/cooling bill?… Nest claims to do that for you.

But what I love most… it looks beautiful. Imagine. A beautiful thermostat! Heck… I might even say it’s sexy!

Interiors: Heaven For Industrialists

August 25, 2012 § 1 Comment

Died and gone to heaven. Me.

I love, love, LOVE the hex tile under the dining set and how it blends into the plank wood flooring… brilliant in every way. ┬áSize. Colour. Application. LOVE.

Those wall mounted ‘stick men’ light fixtures, standing like soldiers in the hallway, a great way to make that wall a feature. Sometimes, all it takes is simplicity and repetition to make a statement.

The shower… oh boy… the shower. Those blackened tiles, deep and dark, offset by intricately patterned black and white floor tiles that extend out from the shower, underneath the vanity and freestanding blackened tub, melding it all together. So fabulous – did I mention ‘heaven’??

Sigh…Yet another beautiful interior by Paola Navone. Click here for more of me gushing about her work.
