Rodolphe Foucher

Photographer Rodolphe Foucher emailed us recently to thank us for featuring one of his photos in a post a while back. Being the nosy person that I am, I went poking around his website only to discover we SO should have done a whole post on his work. His portfolio is filled with plenty incredible photos, so I emailed him back begging if I could post his work. He agreed. :) Turns out he's a really nice guy too! Here are my favourite photos from his website, but go on over and have a look yourself. There are landscape, places, architecture and still life photos that are must-sees as well.














The one below I had to post because I love the style and colours although it has nothing to do with interior design. Well, imagine it in a black frame with a white mat in a modern space. There, interior design.

Mike Witt


Mike Witt designs rooms with a modern aesthetic with more than a nod to mid-century influences. Is it obvious that he has spent years of studying, buying and selling 20th century decorative and fine arts? To me these spaces are classics of the future. Even though he uses finishes that may be thought cold and hard (think concrete and metal) the rooms are still warm and intimate, rich and at times organic.

Cat house

Ok, this has to be one of the coolest homes I've seen in a long time. And before you look any further, remember, this comment is coming from someone with 6 cats. Thanks to fellow Ottawan Liz for sending me a link to this unbelievable home in Japan, specifically designed for feline friends.

Centrala

Aleksandra emailed us the other day with the following: "I would like to share with you an apartment project realized in Warsaw, Poland. I have never seen any polish design at your blog and when I found "softbox" I couldn't resist. I had to write to you. It is about 70 square meters apartment, which instead of walls have curtains made from the same material that airbags are made of. Those curtains divide the apartment into bedroom, workroom etc. I think it's interesting and beautiful design. The central part of the apartment, called "hardbox" contains among others the kitchen and bathroom and is custom made out of old furniture. The company which designed it is called Centrala, designers are Kuba Szczesny & Gosia Kuciewicz." I really enjoy featuring creative living spaces on the blog so a big thanks to Aleksandra for wanting to share this one.






Here are more photos of Centrala's work I found on their website.

Fernando Bengoechea


It's difficult to reconcile the beauty of these images with the tragic end of the talented photographer who took them. Fernando Bengoechea had his short but incredibly full life taken by the devastating tsunami of 2004. With work appearing in the major magazines like Elle Decor, Fernando displayed a phenomenal talent as his portfolio attests. So much extraordinary ability and potential was lost on that Boxing Day in 2004 not the least of which was that of Fernando Bengoechea. His photos live on and are a lasting tribute.
