The Stockholm architecture firm of Widjedal Racki Bergerhoff are an über-talented group of three who create modern residential masterpieces. I don't imagine anyone living in these homes would ever want to leave. I sure as hell wouldn't. You'd have to bury me among the rocky landscape.
Yes you read right ... reader's home. Laura from NYC emailed us these pictures of her rental. Yes you read right ... rental. Apparently she's been looking at Desire to Inspire religiously to find inspiration for the most recent apartment she rented in NYC. Laura didn't want to spend a lot of money, so she did a lot of the decorating by painting the walls with frames and buying furniture on eBay. (Laura I need to know your secret sources on eBay! Spill the beans! And seriously those windows are to die for.) Sadly Laura may be leaving her apartment soon as she is bidding to buy a place in the west village in NYC and is already pulling 100's of pictures for inspiration. Don't feel too sad if you don't get the new place though Laura. Your current home is perfect!
Is there anything cooler than a bed on wheels that slides onto a deck so you can sleep under the stars, or huge sliding doors that open a space to the outdoors, or window seats with incredible views, or little bed niches? I THINK NOT. Fernau & Hartman Architects make all that happen and then some.
Swedish interior design is white. Right? What's really hot is when Swedish designers turn to the dark side. This stunning minimalist space may just tempt you to follow their lead. Innovative, contemporary and urban. Seriously beautiful work by Stockholm based Erik Andersson Architects. Found here in their dream home section.
Beautiful grainy shots, an interesting play with focus, studies of decay and the imperfect. I'm fascinated by the portfolio of photographer Manny Rodriguez Beauty isn't always sparkling and new or perfect and polished. I particularly love his use of incandescent light - so moody. Must see on the website - graffiti doors, leaves and Manny's personal work.
