Paul Raeside yet again

It's no secret that Jo and I have a huge photographer crush on Paul Raeside. Jo blogged him in '09 here and I blogged an update in November. He wrote us to say he's working on this website by adding a 'pinboard', which will be in a month or so. I of course had to go poking around anyway and came across a whole pile of yummy photos we hadn't blogged yet....so many I think I'll have to do 2 posts today to cover them all. So here you have it - part 1.

Big bright and white

  

Bold and brash and fun and funky. Colour bouncing off the white walls. Soaring ceilings and solid stone. Inside outside bright side white side. What fun! Perfect summer party house? Maybe ;) Honiton house by Sydney based MCK (Marsh Cashman Koolloos) Architects.

Dreaming

I close my eyes and sweet dreams will come. Dreams of a home just right. Natural materials, a treasure trove of textures. Nothing too precious but everything beautiful. Tactile and heart touching. Memories and possibilities. Work and play. A place to create and a place to rest. Kim has already featured the work of April Tidey but I had to go baclk to the Gas Town loft she designed. For the dreams. (Photography: Heather Ross)

Frederic Hooft

We received a very intriguing email the other day from a reader named Adriaan regarding this post Jo published a while ago of photographer Frederik Vercruysse's work. Turns out it featured a couple of photos of the home of interior designer Frederic Hooft. Seems he now resides in an amazing 16th century home located in the city of Ghent (having bought it 15 minutes after seeing it for the first time). It's gorgeous - the vintage modern blend is perfectly juxtaposed against the history of the home. (Source)

Glass house

Dreaming of a glass box overlooking water. Anchored by stone and garden. Filled with mid century treasure and art. White and bright. Restrained and curated but bold in its transparency. Strong and fragile. Dream come true. Fishers Island House by New York architects Thomas Pfifer and Partners.
