I am a little shocked to discover we haven't featured design god Robert Couturier on this blog, until now. He is based in New York, has been featured in just about every shelter magazine there is, and has been included on Architectural Digest's Top 100 Designers list on several occasions. His work is totally glamorous, luxurious, bold, witty and frankly, makes me want to throw a party. In those spaces.
Too many beautiful images in Lucyina Moodie's portfolio. Where do I start? What photos do I choose? I sat in awe as I clicked from image to image. Great styling so modern yet feminine and still with a hint of vintage. Hey vintage is the new modern. Love Lucyina's work can't you tell?
Alise O'Brien is an internationally recognised and award winning architectural and interiors photographer. She's the one that architects call on to capture their work on film, a talented professional. I call her an artist. Beautiful light, clever composition and great colour. Yes she has it all but more importantly her photos of stunning spaces have soul. As we all know it's easy to take a photo. It takes talent to take a great one.
It's been since early last year that we've posted about the work of Alex Papachristidis, and he never ceases to amaze me. He is on my list of top 10 favourite designers. His designs have so much depth it's almost overwhelming - but in a good way. His style is not for the minimalist, which is why I love his portfolio so much. So much to look at, so many layers, so many patterns and colours. I am baffled at how well it all works together. I could never pull something like that off. That takes some pretty serious talent. And he's up to his eyeballs in it.
I must stop searching real estate sites particularly when I come across fabulous houses on fabulous blocks of land. This Sunshine Coast house is just a few hours north of where I sit and I think it's love at first sight. Look at that view! The architect has wisely chosen to not compete with the spectacular site but to enhance it. The house is modern and seaside holiday tough but there are just enough luxuries and ....that view! Can anyone lend me the money?
