Dreaming

I close my eyes and sweet dreams will come. Dreams of a home just right. Natural materials, a treasure trove of textures. Nothing too precious but everything beautiful. Tactile and heart touching. Memories and possibilities. Work and play. A place to create and a place to rest. Kim has already featured the work of April Tidey but I had to go baclk to the Gas Town loft she designed. For the dreams. (Photography: Heather Ross)

Frederic Hooft

We received a very intriguing email the other day from a reader named Adriaan regarding this post Jo published a while ago of photographer Frederik Vercruysse's work. Turns out it featured a couple of photos of the home of interior designer Frederic Hooft. Seems he now resides in an amazing 16th century home located in the city of Ghent (having bought it 15 minutes after seeing it for the first time). It's gorgeous - the vintage modern blend is perfectly juxtaposed against the history of the home. (Source)

Glass house

Dreaming of a glass box overlooking water. Anchored by stone and garden. Filled with mid century treasure and art. White and bright. Restrained and curated but bold in its transparency. Strong and fragile. Dream come true. Fishers Island House by New York architects Thomas Pfifer and Partners.

Maree Homer +1

Three and a half years. Yes three and a half years since I visited Australian photographer Maree Homer's website. (The original post is here.) A lot has certainly happened since the least of which is an overflowing portfolio and her work constantly in Australian shelter magazines. The work has matured. Light is still paramount but now the rooms are havens from the harsh bright light outside. Slashes of light don't cut across spaces. Homes are more appealing because, as most Aussie's will know, being in the cool cocoon of the inside as opposed to the harsh, hot outside is a cultural dreaming. Still an ode to modern Australian life her work captures the spirit of the rooms, the carefree life we love to lead and the slight larrikin attitude that Aussie's have.
