Angus Fergusson


What a fabulous way to end the working week with these beautiful shots from Toronto photographer Angus Fergusson. I'll chant the usual mantra about great light, composition, angle, grasp of colour but really it's the photos that do the talking. That old cliche about a picture painting a thousand words .... true.

Patrice Bevan Cowans

San Franciscan Patrice Bevan Cowans creates spaces that are "elegant without being intimidating". They are often bright and bold with lots of graphic patterns. Timeless and energetic. Fresh and fun.

Jean-Pierre Lemoin


If minimalism is you're thing then French photographer Jean-Pierre Lemoine has a portfolio that will warm your heart. When you think of minimalism as cold Jean-Pierre's shots make it cool. His photos are clean and crisp at the same time adding that hip French touch. And don't get me started on the light!

The most glorious pink

I recently went hog wild in a bookstore and bought a ton of decor books and shelter mags, including House Beautiful. While flipping through it last night, I nearly passed out. In the issue was a home designed by Jonathan Berger, and the entryway was painted in the most GLORIOUS pink I've ever seen. It's Benjamin Moore's Razzle Dazzle (and it looks much better in print), and I'm smitten.


I got it in my head last weekend that I just cannot take the ugliness of my 2 bathrooms anymore. I have decided to redo them on the cheap, while I save up money to gut them and redo them properly. So I'll be scouring my basement and the basements of loved ones looking for anything I can use to spruce them up. And I will DEFINITIVELY be painting the powder room in this pink (if it's available in Canada that is). I cannot wait!!!

Meyer Davis

Meyer Davis Studio, based in New York City, creates such overwhelmingly beautiful spaces that this is an encore post. (Jo blogged about this firm back in '07). I am completely smitten with the colour scheme first 4 photos - so fresh and modern.
