Canadian interior designer Ami McKay specialises in creating healthy homes and sustainable spaces. She crafts sanctuaries, family homes that eco aware but don't scream "look at me I'm a green warrior" but simply are. It's comfort and style with the right attitude and anchored in awareness and fact. (Amy even has her own line of eco sustainable furniture Pure.)
I have a wall of art featuring portraits of chicks, and I just got an email from Andrea Heimer of her gorgeous chick art. If I weren't totally broke right now, I'd be buying one....or two... They are from her new online art show at Art For Empty Walls. The show features five small portraits from her "Decadence" series. All works are for sale online - so quick! Go NOW!
...this living room? office? I've posted it before but whatever it is I am in love, and it needs it's own post. I have been thinking alot lately how I need a proper place to put my collection of shelter mags. They are currently piled in my office and in a bookcase in the
dungeon basement. I'm thinking of some type of unit in my office to replace the revamped wardrobe unit I have in there currently, or making the wall in my bedroom opposite the bed floor to ceiling shelving. The magazines in this photo just look...beautiful. A little bit of mid-century modern always gets me going - and those tulip chairs are perfect in the space. *SIGH* I'm definitively loving this.
Jo posted about Italian photographer Guido Barbagelata a couple months ago but when I cam across his website and found a ton of jaw-dropping photos of interiors, I had to do a second post. I adore these photos and the spaces - particularly the first one. It's the vibe I want to try and achieve in my living room when I can muster up some cash to redo it (forget the gauzy tent and umbrella). And the photo below it? Now that's hot.
Digging just a little further often pays off. I fell in love with Trevor Dixon's work on his rep's site just a couple of posts ago but it left me wanting more. A little more searching and his website gave me all the eye candy I could want. Great shots of inspiring rooms. Yum! Don't miss the rest of his portfolio especially the lifestyle and food (yes food again) and his nighttime series.
