Gary Hutton

With a degree in fine arts it's easy to see where the sculptural influences in interior designer Gary Hutton's work come from. It's about volume and form, about material and finish. It's also about the art and the art of living. Clean lines with minimalism tempered by luxury. Think contemporary interiors complimented by contemporary art. It's his trademark. Had to include the toilet roll wall. Clever but I'd be a little too obessive about keeping it full.

Kate Morris

I am trying REALLY hard to get back into the swing of things but I'm fairly certain a large part of me didn't board the airplane. I can still smell the ocean and hear the crashing of the waves and feel the intense heat on my sizzling skin. But, I MUST keep blogging and get my brain back in reality. I thought I'd start with the portfolio of a British stylist, Kate Morris. Simple spaces styled and photographed beautifully.

It's all about the view

And it's all about the outside. A simple, minimalist interior in a house that throws open its walls and plays second fiddle to the great outdoors. What a pool. Those palm trees ... swoon. Gently sloping green green grass and the star of the show, rainforest hemming in on all sides. All this anchored by stone walls and gravel courtyards. I'd quibble that the house needs a few more personal touches, some spectacular art but then how can you argue with that view. And all of this is in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Byron Bay, Australia. Sometimes real estate stalking takes my breath away. Here while the link lasts.

I'm back

Buenos dias everyone! I am back from my too-short trip to Mexico, having arrived late last night. I had a blast as I always do in Puerto Vallarta (that was my third or fourth time there). I took lots of photos which I hope to share here and on Flickr and bought as much stuff as I could cram in my suitcase (which I will get photos of ASAP). Luckily I took today off work so I can get groceries, do some laundry, clean the house and hang out with my boyfriend who unfortunately did not accompany me on the trip. I don't have time to get a regular post ready but I thought I'd show you some photos I took of a shop I found in the cool surf town of Sayulita. 

 

This town was an hour bus ride from PV, and was worth the trip. We spent the day there and had a great time hanging out on the beach watching the surfers, shopping of course, and eating the best freaking burritos I've ever had. I uploaded a photo a couple days ago on Flickr of the floor in this shop (whose name I cannot remember) and it's been such a hit that I thought I'd put it and some others here. I love painted floors and this floor has to be my new favourite, hands down. Frankly, everything about this shop was hip and funky which is relatively uncommon. (Pardon the quality of some of these photos - it was often easier to sneak them instead of trying to explain why I was taking them).

John Merkl

When Julie from my favourite blog Remodelista emailed to let me know about a great photographer she worked with in Mill Valley recently I rushed to click on the link. John Merkl takes a clean shot, a beautiful light filled shot, a story telling shot. The images may be well edited, telling just what is necessary to draw you in but that's just what is needed with these contemporary interiors. A focus. (Hah! So he has spot on focus! Couldn't resist the bad pun sorry.)
