Stacey Brandford all over again

Nothing is better than returning to a favourite photographer's website after a prolonged absence and finding out that things are just the same. The work is still fabulous, the talent still shines through. The images are still crisp and clear. The rooms are gorgeous and the pictures are almost like portals to another place. Seems like I could still walk straight into these shots. After all this time things are still the way I remember them except ... there are so many more wonderful new images. Fresh and fab! One of our all time favourite Canadian photographers Stacey Brandford.

Kelly Behun

I recently came across the website of New York based interior designer Kelly Behun and to my shock (or horror) I discovered that we have never blogged her work. I find this nuts because I have just added her to my imaginary top ten list of favourite designers of all time. And on top of that, I am giving her a title - QUEEN OF WHITE. How she makes white rooms work THIS well and be so damn interesting is beyond me. (Perhaps the fancy lofty NY condo backdrop has something to do with it). I'm smitten. And grateful for this momentary diversion from the cat drama of yesterday (....no takers yet, and I can feel the beginning of the insanity of potentially owning 8 cats creeping into my bones - hey, even straight jackets are white! will the walls of my padded cell be white too?!).

Leaning against the wall

Nonchalantly leaning. A relaxed group just biding their time. Leaning. Cool photo by yesterday's photographer hero David Prince.

The boathouse

Perched upon the shoreline, its face turned modestly to the water this modern reinterpretation of a previous 19th century Norwegian boathouse no longer provides a home for a boat but instead is now a summer place. Honest, simple, referential, almost reverential and very clever. As the weather warms the boathouse lifts its walls to the sun. Beauty in building, beauty in place, beauty in purpose. The boathouse by TYIN tegnestue Architects.
