A baby grande, books, terrazzo floors, and mint coloured slip covers; I have fallen right back into the carefree days of summer. -tM
Apparently this piece is exploring the current state governing the relationships between men and women in today’s society, and is inspired by the psychoanalytical theories of Arno Gruen.
I am drawn to the magic realism of her work, and the dual forces of nature that toil at the heart of this piece. -tM
The new AESOP store in Rome designed by none other then the director himself, Luca Guadagnino. Is there anything this man cannot do? Even his designs are full of longing & desire. The voyeuristic appeal of the window from the sidelines beckons me to come take a closer look. This store is as sexy on the inside as on the outside. -tM
Calm, and patient, this video explores the minimalist architecture of Le Corbusier, who was one of the pioneers of urban planning and architecture. He dedicated his life to providing better living conditions for those residing in crowded cities.
I can still hear the ocean and distant highway traffic long after the picture has stopped moving. -tM
The beautiful colour and texture of these images and words add a richness to life, making it a work of art in and of itself. -tM

I am appreciative of the attention to detail in this Italian restaurant. Merging the old world with the new, from the flag poles that fly the local news, to the booths, that with a simple mechanical turn of the table can go from an intimate seating for one to friendship for two. Function, form, and beautiful design. Once lost, now found, simplicity is here to stay. -tM

I love the way one would move through this room. Straight lines direct you but the curves entice you to linger a little longer, to take a seat, to loose your inhibitions.
Sensual, classic, and contemporary, the colour and texture of this space move me toward an inner state of peace. tM

When you accept and respect where you are at, and begin to go with the flow of your surroundings, life begins to flourish within and around you. -tM
"Loving is a journey with water and with stars, with smothered air and abrupt storms of flour: loving is a clash of lightning-bolts and two bodies defeated by a single drop of honey." - Pablo Neruda

There is opposition and struggle even in love. A force so great, that if willing, allows you the opportunity to become more then what you are, by inclusion. -tM
When ocean meets jungle and gives birth to a lounge/restaurant in Paris. The natural world is an limitless source of inspiration. -tM

A friend sent this to me a while ago. I am revisiting this piece on this rainy Tuesday morning. -tM

The oceans beckon towards you
A beauty beyond the lapping waves..."

Most of these are placed around various Australian beaches annually. I wish I new the artists names in order to credit them.
The Sea as the continuous muse; she touches everyone one differently. -tM

There have been endless hommages to the sea. She touches everyone differently. -tM

I have said it before, and I will say it again, perspective is everything. It truly is life changing. -tM

While she was being built there were parts of her gracing specific locations from Paris to the United States.
This kind of process display would never happen today. I think her fragmented tour was an interesting way to at the very least make space in the workshop while the rest of her was being shipped off piece to piece to her final resting place. It also gave people the appreciation of her exact proportions, which were to say at the very least, quite intimidating. -tM

"Garden's are our best defence against the hostile world."
There is so much that get's absorbed by nature, so much that we let go of while in her presence. We come out cleaner, more peaceful, more human. -tM
From Mediterranean and Spanish Hacienda inspired gardens in Los Angeles, to an 18th century restoration of a chateau in France, the art and design of landscaping is just as important as interior design. It is all part of the architectural design of the home. There is no separation, it is just an extension. -tM
