DHgate has all for travelling


A little happy for your Friday

As usual, it's freezing here in Ottawa and I have just about HAD IT with winter. I thankfully decided to take a little 10 day trip to Puerto Vallarta at the end of the month to meet up with my folks who are there for 6 weeks. While I'm on that topic, if anyone happens to know of any interesting shops that sell decor items or architecture I should photograph (I'm bringing all my camera gear) in PV PLEASE email or leave a comment. Unlike my other visits there, this time around I'd like to do something besides laying around the pools (although I still plan to do ALOT of that).
Back to the real reason for this post. I found these adorable little cabins in Stuart McIntyre's portfolio when I was working on yesterday's post of his work. Grass, flowers.....I almost forget what summer feels like.


Camilla Julner


It's not about the words on Desire to Inspire. It's all about the eye candy. I could go on about the keen design eye and on the trend styling of Camilla Julner but her work tells the story. And inspiration doesn't always have to come from a complete room. Camilla's vignettes are overflowing for great ideas on colour, juxtaposition, texture. Hey too many words! Enjoy!






Stuart McIntyre

Jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring, mind-blowing...anyone with even the slightest appreciation for interior photography will likely use these adjectives when they see the photos below of Danish photographer Stuart McIntyre. His photography has me so mesmerized I may have to do an encore tomorrow. :)




Muskelil is Cassandra Karinsky and Valentina Pilia. It's a meeting of an Australian via the States and an Italian via Paris at a crossroads in Marrakech. Through Muskelil Valentina and Cassandra  share their special objects, interior styling and decor. Purveyors of the most beautiful Moroccan rugs. Their look is fresh but lived in, simple but sophisticated, so Moroccan but at home on a world stage. It's like they peeked inside my mind and stole my dreams of my perfect home.







Dining in the kitchen

Stacy emailed us recently asking for some inspiration for her sis: "We live in a very expensive "city" in the US, full of retirees, so the only affordable houses are either falling apart or brand new cookie cutter subdivision types. My sister and her husband are in the process of buying a new house and have chosen the new option. The kitchen, of course, consists of an L shape ...counters, cooktop, fridge, sink, dishwasher etc with no island or even room for one. I was wondering if you have a collection of rooms where the eating table is inside the kitchen? I would like to show her how she can make it look less boring in there." Hopefully the following photos of small-ish kitchens with mini dining areas will help Stacy's sister spice up her blah kitchen.
