founded by brian faherty in 2003 following his discovery of a long-lost collection of cast-iron glass shade moulds in an abandoned warehouse, schoolhouse has every ingredients the creative makers believe in: the preservation of american manufacturing, thoughtful living and purposeful design.

i’ve been eyeing this issac pendant for a while. the minimal look of scandinavian-meets-vintage would be perfect for our second floor hallway. the isaac pendant is part of the Schoolhouse Electric Original, handcrafted in the portland factory.

they also have the solid brass cabinet knobs & drawer pulls handcrafted in the USA from 95% recycled brass. simply beautiful.

floating sideboards, again

IKEA kitchen wall unit with marble top

six months passed and we still haven’t settled on the sideboard solution in our house, nor have we started the long over-due renovation… anyway, speaking of patience.

while we’re still open for the hallway solution, here i am self affirmed that i would really looove to have a minimal look of sideboards in our living room-also-part-of-hallway. my top choice is still this IKEA hack shown in the above image : kitchen wall units with marble top.

✚ and of course, this no-hack needed simple white floating sideboard is even better…

another beautiful costal townhouse refurbished by sydney-based C+M studio ( check out the previous post cross street). love the simplicity of material selection ( light wood, tan leather) in this light-filled white interior.

my favorite detail is the herringbone marble tile behind the washing sink… a lovely twist on a conventional tile layout.

marble countertop makes a nice material connection in this interior from kitchen to bathroom, as well as the gold hardware. people have warned me that using gold hardware is not practical, i will eventually get tired of looking at them… is that true?
