An art-filled still life to start your week on an inspiring note. Have a good one.

Mid Century Tropical

The vibrantly coloured São Paulo home of Brazilian architect Maurício Arruda and José Porto is a mid century gem — hardly touched since it was built, its well preserved state has merely been updated with richly coloured walls that are cleverly mixed with touch of grey — cheerful during the day, they become soft and mellow in the evenings. Furnished with mid century finds, art collected in their travels and gifts from their many friends from all over the world, it's a bright and cosmopolitan space, perfectly suited to an outgoing couple who love to entertain. Wonderful. More here at AD España.

The Listening Booth: Summer Swim, Part 3

Welcome to The Listening Booth, a regular series of posts that features a guest musician, DJ or music devotee sharing their current three favourite songs with automatism readers. 

Today's Listening Booth is hosted by the brilliantly talented and lovely DJ Lamb Rabbit, and it's all about warm summer days spent in and by the water. In fact, Lamb Rabbit was so inspired that our Summer Listening Booth post is a four part series, to dip into throughout the month of August. Enjoy Part 3.


Hailing from Ottawa, Canada, Rachel DJs around town under her creative nom de plume Lamb Rabbit, as well as with a lady-DJ collective she co-founded called The Girlfriends.

You can find some of Rachel's mixes here

Rachel's Three Picks

Summer sun leaves me yearning to get off of dry land and into the cool, cool water. Lay back and listen to the lapping of the waves, or dive a little deeper. Let's go swimming.
