Douglas Coupland's amazingly decorated home, filled with his collections of interesting design objects, artwork and mid century furniture. Now if only I could apply my skill of collecting in such a way....yep, when I get that 1950's beach house It will certainly look this organised.

Lots of new traffic coming to my blog from La Factoria Plastica, thank you for the lovely mention (have a look see here).....I will most certainly be vising their pages regularly. Have a look at these inspirational finds. Enjoy!
