Slow

Can't believe we have been in our new old house for almost a year and it seems like we have barely scratched the surface of what needs to be done. Not that I'm worried. I have come to know this 150 year old house intimately during that time. We are comfortable with each other. If it takes time then it takes time. I took a couple of shots in my living room this morning. The light cutting into the dark chocolate room was beautiful. There are a couple more over on my page with some explanations of (and excuses for) what you can see.

Home of a glamourai

A couple of weeks ago I blogged a little peek into the home of fashion bloggers Jane and Judy Aldridge. Today I thought I'd share a little bit of Kelly Framel's home. Her fashion blog the glamourai is one of my daily must-reads. Kelly's NYC apartment is fabulous decked out in my favourite colours (black, white, brass and silver) with a glam Hollywood Regency vibe. And check out her adorable pooch!

Perfect compositions and OMG how he makes the natural light work in his favour so beautifully. On a side note, when I came across these photos I immediately sent the photo above to my husband, and told him we need to tile something in the new house with those beautiful black matte tiles.

Beautiful

 

The colours, the light, the rug, the shot. Another stunning photo by Canadian snapper Virginia MacDonald.
