House of Honey

Tamara Kaye-Honey is a Canadian now living in Los Angeles who, like many interior designers/decorators, started out in fashion. She's been in the business of interiors since 2003 and her eclectic designs are punchy, witty and dramatic. Tamara's work combines high and low, old and new pieces (love that!) to create modern spaces that are not so serious. I'm a big fan. (Check out House of Honey, her online shop stocked with to-die-for, must-have items!)

Yann Deret

Finish the week just as it was started with beautiful pictures of inspiring rooms. Remember my post on KO Studio? The photographer of those golden delights is Yann Deret and of course I had to share more of his portfolio. There is a certain something, is there not, about his work? Elegant and refrained, simply seductive. Except when it is vibrant and fun! High end or low, moody and modern, white, bright and punchy, Yann Deret captures it all through his lens and presents us with the dream space.

k19studio

It's almost Friday (thank gawd) and I wanted to do a quick post before I hit the sack to welcome a new advertiser to desire to inspire. k19studio is recently established in Germany, with the notion that people can bring original modern artwork into their homes at a fraction of the cost of art found in galleries. Here is a bit of info: Pictures presented by k19studio are the geometric abstract painting executed in the technique of acrylic on canvas or acrylic on aluminum. Attention! It's not printed matter, it's not posters, it's the real original pictures, each of which, the artist makes individually, manually.
On the k19studio site a few themes each with a set of samples and various sizes are presented. You can choose the sample and the size you like. From this sample we will make the picture in the acrylic on canvas or on aluminum technique for you. Each sample is used a limited number of times (max. 5)

Check out some very cool completed works below (the organic geometry line is my favourite):

A vintage home, full of life

I found the following home on the website of French magazine Le Journal de la Maison last night and HAD to blog it. I adore homes like this one. Quirky, rustic, vintage, eclectic, colourful, mid century. Blend all those together and I'm completely smitten. I even love that fact that one window pane in the living room is partially painted pink. (Styled and photographed by Dana Van Leeuwen)

David Prince +1

I haven't had a photographer crush for some time and well, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do when her design heart is smitten by a seriously sexy portfolio. Fabulous use of light, clever composition and an eye that can cut through the cr*p to get to the inner beauty. Meet my new photographer squeeze David Prince. He's a hand-me-down though because Kim has professed her love for him before. New photos since then. Love the one above. Just want to snuggle in to that corner. Think a drink and a good conversation might also be on the boards. And don't get my started on that simple empty frame just nonchalantly leaning against the wall. Such a tease!
