Sometimes with web surfing things get a little bland, a little so so. Then suddenly you find a website that is just so inspiring. Prepare to be amazed! Photographer Jeremy Samuelson has a breathtaking portfolio. Imaginatively displayed as a series of books with each turn of the page there is another stunning image filling the whole screen. Lighting, composition, depth of field, colour. You can be amazed by his technique or you can just let his fabulous talent wash over you. Must check the archives for more of his work and his list of clients will let you know how highly esteemed he is in the industry. Am I gushing? You betcha!
I could use a green tea right about now (it was a very VERY long day), and considering the state of my kitchen, I could also REALLY use some cabinets from Greentea Design. It's a Toronto based Asian furniture retailer with a large selection of contemporary and antique pieces and a strong commitment to the environment. They've been around for over ten years, and judging by the products featured on their website, I'd say they'll be around for many more. Not only do they carry kitchen cabinetry, but living room, dining room and bedroom furniture as well. Gorgeous!!! (Thanks Michael!)
I LOVE Kelly Wearstler's style, and when we got an email about a new project of hers I was excited to post about it.
"Poised to aesthetically amaze the most astute of second-home buyers with inspiring designs by internationally acclaimed tastemaker Kelly Wearstler, Viceroy Anguilla will unveil its model four-bedroom villa on Barnes Bay, March 15. This season offers the final opportunity to own part of Viceroy’s flagship overseas development – a limited collection of beachfront and blufftop villas, townhomes and resort residences embracing the pristine natural beauty and tranquility of this West Indie Island. "Overall, I was inspired by the tranquil beach setting," comments Wearstler of her work at Viceroy Anguilla. "In designing the property, we used textiles and techniques from all over the world, including hand-carved wood pieces from Asia, hammered metalwork from India and beaded artwork from Africa which offer a visual contrast with the modern architecture.""
WOW!!! Vacation anyone???
Alex Jordan and Dan Smieszny are co-presidents of the architecture and design firm Gregga Jordan Smieszny whose work has been published in countless Architectural Digests and House Beautiful among others. I admire the diversity of their work - it spans mid-century, art deco, neoclassical, modern and more. No matter what style, it all reads as elegant and sophisticated.
Another fabulous stylist from the RE:FRESH Agency. Stella Nicholaisen has a must see portfolio. Gorgeous styling, gorgeous colours, inspirational ideas. Love the first image with it's oversized postcards, the whimsical teacups tied onto parcels in the last and the wonderful orange, so bright and brave.
