James Merrell

The last time I blogged about the photography of super-talented James Merrell I so awestruck I was at a loss for words. Well, I'm still at a loss for words. He has photographed some of the cutest and coolest homes I've ever seen, and his photos are perfectly composed and mesmerizing. Love him, love these.

Teeny tiny, white and shiny

  

Could you live in 2 rooms with a bath? Something as teeny tiny as this 47 square metre apartment in Göteborg? It's white, it's light and of course it's a home styled and for sale through Alvhem Mäkleri & Interiör.  Think modern living meets great bones in a historical building with a great position. Small though, very small. I think I could - if I gave up the husband and the guide dog :)

Casually draped sofas

Lately I have been seeing alot of sofas simply draped in pieces of fabric or loosely slipcovered and I really love the casual and comfortable vibe this produces. It's a wonderful money-saving solution to anyone with a hand-me-down sofa whose upholstery may be less than desirable. My favourite is when draped with a huge piece of cream coloured linen. I love easily wrinkled fabrics and this has the effect of "come take a leap on here, throw your feet up and call the dog/S.O. up to snuggle with you". This idea can also easily have a messy and cheap look but if the rest of the room is filled with natural and casual items then it can work. It's a great way to get a different look with each season as well - light linen in the summer and faux fur in the winter (I love the photo with the fur below).

Elizabeth Martin Design

  

"Interior Design isn't just about picking out pretty furniture or tiles, it's about looking at how you live." Elizabeth Martin knows how people live. Her work is as varied as her clients because of just that. Each client leads to a unique solution. A common theme does run through her work though. It's a casual elegance, with an emphasis on comfort, on recharging the body and spirit. Sounds like the perfect place to come home to.

Storm Interiors

Lara Fishman founded her design firm Storm Interiors in 2000. Located in Los Angeles, her firm has had a variety of projects - executive offices, residences, restaurants, medical offices etc. Traditional, rustic, regency, old Hollywood, contemporary....no style seems off limits to Lara and her team. The icing on the cake would have to be Lara's secondary firm, Designers Call, founded on the philosophy that high-end interior design should be accessible to those without the budgets or time for the traditional design process. Lara converted a Mercedes/Dodge Sprinter into a mobile design studio in order to bring fast, affordable decorating services and design products straight to her clients' homes. Genius! Here's a small taste of some of the beautiful spaces in her portfolios.
