Bizarre

I came across the following photos on AT Casa and had a good laugh. Now, I think conversation pits are cool, especially coming across the one I blogged about here via Linebox Studio that I'm desperately hoping will be do-able in my new home. But a huge, fully carpeted one is just so....70s. And kind of ugly. No offense to Jason Miller, furniture designer and owner of this lovely shag pit he created in his 600 sq. ft apartment in Brooklyn. But really? (I found more details here).

Gregory Mellor

Classic, timeless, completely comfortable and serene. These are words that immediately came to mind when I found the portfolio of interior designer Gregory Mellor. Just the kind of spaces you want to come home to after a hard day's work, and where you want to hang out on weekends with a fire going, a cup of hot chocolate in one hand and your favourite shelter mag in the other (or in Jo's case at the moment, where you sit with a glass of iced tea and a hot shirtless guy - Mr. Mellor perhaps - waving palm fronds at ya).

Feeling blue

No not sad. Just really feeling the pastel sweetness of this pretty image I found in stylist Ali Bradshaw's portfolio. How about tickled pink by the next one?

Or positively dotty over this one?

Lincoln Barbour

I have a question to pose. A question that our non US readers might be able to chime in on. I came across photographer Lincoln Barbour's portfolio and I instantly said "American". You too? Can you pick the country of a photographer like it is often possible to do with a designer or architect? (Like Jessica Helgerson who designed a couple of the rooms in these shots.) Barbour's work speaks to me of positivity and joy, aspiration and family, tradition intertwined with modern. It's light and bright and full of hope. Cheerful, upbeat and confident. It's selling the dream, confirming you've made it ... not in a trashy, money grubbing way but in a contented, loving family way. It's sunshine on a cloudy day and it's good. It's American.

Soothing

I find black and white decor very soothing, and veeeeeeery appealing. And because I am feeling a little overwhelmed right now with everything going on, I thought a little black and white via Skonahem might help...or at the very least distract me momentarily. (I think I could have also titled this post "Lighting porn").
