John Willey 

As I mentionned back in a post in '08, Manhattan interior designer John Willey is an inspiration for those who believe that beige is a colour. Because he certainly does NOT. His spaces are wrapped in bold colour and pattern and give off lots of fun energy. He's a genius, what can I say. Here are some newer photos from his portfolio.

Lisa Romerein

  

Photographer Lisa Romerein specialises in food, travel, lifestyle, architecture, interiors and .... "lovely". She excels at "lovely". Look at this portfolio! Just gorgeous. I want to jump through the screen and make myself at home in every photo. If that is part of Lisa's mission statement then she's succeeded. Lovely light, lovely rooms, lovely feel to each shot.  Just lovely.  P.S. Ever wonder how to "lift" heavy oak furniture? Check out the perfect blue to liven even the most dour of dark wood. After the jump.

G. P. Schafer Architect

"The things one loves about old houses - their sense of history, their time-worn easy comfort, the way they sit on the land with an air of inevitability, their elegant proportions and details - can still be had in a new house today, and they are at the heart of the work we do. Through a dynamic combination of discernment, taste, imagination and rigor, we strive to create new places for our clients to live and enjoy life. These places are rooted in tradition but also keenly attuned to the demands and opportunities of life today. They celebrate craftsmanship and quality, comfort and decoration, natural light and the importance of connecting the rooms inside with the landscapes which surround them. At the end of the day, our goal is to make places that are beautiful, comfortable, of exceptional quality, and seem as if they have always been there."
- G. P. Schafer Architect

A first house

Lucia Korcarz is a young architect in Argentina. She has just finished her first house associated with Anthony Sibbald. Located on a farm 100km from Buenos Aires it is so stylish, casually elegant and practical. It's simplicity is its beauty. A wonderful career ahead I think.

Reader's home

Reader Laurel Walter lives in southern Oregon and this is her fabulous home. These shots were taken by Matthew Millman (my earlier post on Matthew here) for a magazine feature. Laurel says her home is a trifecta project involving herself and Jennifer Bright, her partner in their interiors styling business, Twist, and Dewayne Lumpkin, owner of Home Economics. Unfortunately the magazine folded and Lauren's home remained unpublished but I am so jealous because Laurel has these amazing photos! I spy so much that I love. I'm ticking off the industrial items and found objects that I want for my place but most of all I'd kill for a wonderful outdoor room like Laurel's.
