Rebel (Walls)

I spent yesterday in London at the EABG conference and got home to Devon very very late but totally fired up, such an inspirational, amazing day, I was honoured to be in the same room, let alone meet, with so many people who really are the change they want to see. I could not get enough about evidence-based education and got many ideas on how to implement it on a micro level at home in Sami’s programme, but to think that over in the US that is what is driving policy, instead of the collective incompetence of a handful of half-wits (UK) – it’s just breathtaking. As is this wallpaper, from the Swedish company Rebel Walls.

Garage in Gotland, Sweden

ImageImageImageI came across these pictures on Daniella Witte’s blog. This space is in a restored garage in Gotland, we love a bit of industrial drama and bold choices in colours and materials. Lots of light from the huge windows make all the shades and textures work beautifully together.

House in Humblebaek, Denmark

I had to remind myself to breathe when I spotted this house in the Australian magazine Est. Designed by the Copenhagen firm Norm Architects to accommodate the needs of a working artist, the house had to work as a studio as well as a home, maximise natural light and provide a sanctuary for inspiration and creativity. The old farm workers house was found in the open fields behind the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Humlebaek (serendipitous?), and the reconstruction utilised a lot of the existing raw materials: old wooden beams, brick walls and steel supports.

I think the result is breathtaking. I love the floor, it was made by roughly sanding a concrete base and treating it with shiny epoxy, such beautiful colours and shades. The perfect backdrop for those paintings.
