Michael Graydon

Michael Graydon is a familiar name to me, as he regularly shoots for Canadian House & Home and Style at Home magazines. He has an amazing talent, creating such fresh and bright photos. Plus, some of his photos are immediately going into my inspiration folder....such as this one below:

I mean, can pink stairs BE ANY CUTER?!?! I have to repaint mine as the white I chose isn't the right shade, and I'm wondering if I can muster up that much courage.

I have neighbours who can look down into my backyard, and another project on my todo list is to create some privacy on part of my deck. When I saw the next two photos I freaked. It's what I've been dreaming about since I bought my house.

I love the pink stairs and the privacy deck. My neighbors can to see into my backyard as well. I'm working on transforming my shed... into a backyard getaway. Sounds crazy, I know, but I can't stop dreaming chalet!

so much to love from the pink stairs to that pool color chandelier to those outdoor spaces. very creative way to add privacy like you said, to your outdoor space. and still lets the air and the sun filter through.

If you like pink stairs, you should really check out a post on my blog, that I wrote a little while ago. Here you really have pink stairs :-)

The pink stairs are great! I think you should try. It's just paint. You can always change it if it doesn't work out!

Do you have proper links for where you took these images from? I would have thought a blog of this size would link ethically. Surprised every day by those that choose not to.

Kate, what are you talking about? I said these are photos by Michael Graydon and his name is hyperlinked to his website where I found the photos. Thanks for accusing us of being unethical when WE ALWAYS QUOTE OUR SOURCES.
