A relaxed blend of Scandinavian and English style, the London home of Designers Guild fabric designer Jo Willer is a work in progress. Carefully retaining the apartment's lovely period details such as the fireplaces, ceiling moldings and woodwork, the space has been furnished with flea market finds, antiques and fabrics from Jo's extensive collection. Modern, feminine and vintage, Jo's home embraces it all to beautiful effect. More here on Marie Claire Maison.

I'm very excited to introduce automatism readers to the lovely shop Tinder. Founded in 2008, this Canadian independent online shop offers general household and sundry goods for both urban and rural dwelling, all sourced from traditional manufacturers and modern cottage industries. Its inventory is chosen for simple utility and sound construction, made from durable raw materials fit for purpose (and re-purpose: repair, recycle, return to the elements). Tinder also supports a small number of worthy causes (social & ecological) specific to Canada, with a modest portion of its profits. There's beauty to be found in the honesty and quality of the design of these goods — not only do they perform their tasks well, but they all look great while doing so, too. Start shopping at Tinder here.
