Mauricio Fuertes

I wonder if photographers who shoot such absolutely amazing spaces (ie. yesterday's post) go home to their less than stellar dwellings and think "why do I live in this dump?". I think today's featured photographer might have had that thought on occasion. Mauricio Fuertes of Barcelona claims he's been working alot, in places that he dreams about. I'm fairly certain had I stepped into any of the spaces I'd be having dreams about them too, and wishing they were mine.

That first photograph... oh my. What an inspiring place.

These spaces are just beautiful. With all the windows, I'm afraid I'd not be able to pay for the heating or air conditioning, though. :o(

except for the bathroom open to the bedroom (so not my thing), i must say my heart skipped a beat again and again.

Cool images - now if i ever get tired of my suzani on the bed i'm going to look for a stone wall and a grey sofa for sure.

I love the ornate old bed in an ultra-contemporary space. It's such beautiful contrast. I like that the designer took the bed and put it in a space that's so opposite what it's original setting would have been.

On a related note...
Why are certain old styles fashionable again and other ones not? Things that are mid-century or newer seem to be more popular. I'd love to see someone rediscover a waterfall style (swing era) piece or an antique bed with a 10 ft tall headboard and put it in a new and fresh environment.
