LOVE

Think I can convince my husband that we need one of these suspended wood stoves in our third floor office/media room? Love the wood cart too!

Stiff + Trevillion take 2


Stiff + Trevillion = leading UK architects featured by Jo about 2 years ago. Modern, clean lines and innovative designs. I can't get enough of the tiles in the kitchen above and bathroom after the jump. FAB! And I don't really understand the kitchen above but I frankly don't care because it rocks.

Interior photography 101 

My new photographer crush Russell Smith was inspired by my recent post to help us all understand how he takes such fabulous photos. I mean look at these photos! Don't you want to know how and why and "why can't I"? Russell has put together an interior photography 101 over on his blog with the ins and outs and the juicy photos. Important tips to help you with your interior photography. It gives me an excuse to feature (again) what what must be one of the most blogged photos in recent times and just a few more shots that Russell included over on his blog. Make sure you check out his other posts too. He generously shares ideas and stories on lighting, travel and food photography, digital vs film, post production and so much more.

Commute Home

We concentrate primarily on domestic interiors on Desire to Inspire. It's all about the home. Actually it's all about the room porn for the home. Every so often, though, inspiration comes muscling in from commercial designs. Commute Home is a Toronto based design firm and although what you see before you are restaurants and offices, shops and studio space I could with just a tiny bit of tweaking see these designs providing inspiration for your "not so tame" domesticated home. A little indie. A little edgy. Definitely with attitude. Urban cool. Inner city hip.

I love this house!

Main reasons why I love this location home from 1st Option (some spaces admittedly need some work like the living and dining rooms):
1. chandelier in hallway
2. b/w photography framed in white with white mats
3. ornate mirrors everywhere (so fab in the kitchen)
4. b/w photography featuring deer
5. all white dreamy kitchen
6. mercury glass (or tin?) pendants
7. massive kitchen island
8. gorgeous wallpapers
9. capiz shell chandelier
10. bathroom vanity (vintage cabinet with modern sinks and wall mounted faucets on tiled backsplash)
