Still far from the norm

Definitely far from the norm. Minimalist, white, mid century classics, a dash of black to heighten the mix, bagged bricks and bleached floors and just because it's amazing how about the IKEA PS MASKROS sitting cheek by jowl with Hans Wegner's Wishbone chairs. The Fredensborg house by Norm Architects Copenhagen. White perfection.

Racing the storm

Wild storms are approaching. I must be quick before the lightning comes. As I watch the angry clouds race across the sky I couldn't think of a better post than this one featuring the bruised colours of stylist Hilary Robertson (via Big Leo). Accept that these are calming and soft like that fleeting moment after the rain has stopped, when the calm descends but the light is still other worldly and the thunder rumbles away into the distance. Beautiful colours. Beautiful work.

Sergio Ghetti

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you all get to enjoy some great weather and fun activities. I will be taking a break from studying tomorrow night for dinner out and a Kings of Leon concert (LOVE them Followills!). I leave you today with some fine images from Italian photographer Sergio Ghetti. I find portfolios like Sergio's very intriguing. The spaces are rather raw and natural (he even had the opportunity to photograph a grotto doubling as someone's home!). It is a nice break from the overly styled photos you find in magazines where everything is far too perfect. I am not a fan of perfection.

Four fine photos

  

  

Another rustic idyll. Love those stairs, the white washed walls. Fab shots by Johanna Ekmark via Söderberg Agentur.

Rustic idyll

On Monday I featured a French dream of a house by Isabel López-Quesada. I thought I'd round out the week with another of her rustic projects. Corrugated iron is part of the Australian building vernacular. The rusty iron shed is burned into the Australian psyche. Never quite saw it done like this though. When faded chic meets iron shed. I'd love a weekender just like this ... in a moderate clime I think. Not so fab with heat or cold but we're dreaming here right ;) ? Speaking of a dream ... that kitchen! Sigh.
