I find the work of architectural firm Hugh Newell Jacobsen fascinating. I am not used to this style of architecture. It references the vernacular of the area of the States from which it comes, the simple colonial and coastal buildings, themselves influenced by simple classical lines. Throw in a dash of post-modernism and exceptional locations and it's done. I think what speaks to me, a child of a harsh sunny tropical climate is the cool white light loving interiors that invite in the soft light. The deliberately sparse lines enhance the interior and exterior. I've concentrated mainly on Jacobsen's interiors here but don't miss the exteriors on the website. Inspiring.
We'd like to welcome Paula Lofton with her shop Neutral Dwelling who just joined us as a sponsor. The shop is full of wonderful products, carrying home decor, furniture and tabletop items. I've got my eye on a few things...and she offers free shipping to the continental US for those of you in that neck of the woods. My favourite pieces are below, but you must go have a look at her shop to see much more.

Today was a good day. Today was a "gasp" day because today I found Michael Crockett's portfolio. Doesn't take much to keep me happy ... just a stellar batch of pictures of amazing homes captured by a photographer who has the gift, the god given talent, the eye. Oh my oh my oh my has this guy got the eye. Fabulous! This is just a taste of what awaits you at his website.
