I love the "found object" vibe that is happening in the portfolio of stylist Tanya Goodwin. A collection of stones, a paint peeling wall left as is, tulips ribbon and old bottles. It's quirky, fun and beautiful. Pieces in your home don't have to cost a fortune. Careful consideration of the everyday can look just as lovely as an expensive vase or overpriced vignette. Great portfolio!
Another super talented photographer! Once again a fabulous portfolio with great lighting and composition. Bill Kingston has the rare talent of giving life to inanimate objects and spaces. I feel like I could step into these photos and continue my life there. He has imbued this images with a sense of being. Do you think the girl in the second photo would make me a cup of tea?
Pia Jane Bijkerk just wrote to tell us about her latest project, an eight-page spread she produced and photographed in Paris seen in this month's issue of Home Beautiful. She'll be posting the whole story on her blog, and the story cover is so gorgeous I can't wait to see the rest!
We received an email from Pooja who is looking for some help with her bathroom: "my husband and i are planning a small bathroom renovation and are stuck for ideas. we know we would like to use subway tiles (as the building was built in the 1930s) and are scouring the web for inspiration. i've pulled a few photos from your blog for our contractor, but was hoping to inspire you to post a few ideas for us." I found some subway tile photos but I also grabbed a few photos with other ideas, like painted wood paneling and square tiles for other options. Good luck with the renovation Pooja, and make sure to send us photos!
