Alan Higgs


Modern, crisp, clean lined spaces are the trademark of Australian born, London based Alan Higgs and his team of young architects. The website says it best. "Our work is characterised by a sense of order and calm, finely composed spaces, generous open relationships between rooms and between inside and out, and the capture of as much natural light as possible." Great portfolio!

P.S. Kim just pointed out that she posted Alan Higgs not too long ago. It's official then. We both love Alan's work ;)

White is the new white

Coincidentally, I found more photos of beautiful drenched-in-white homes. This time it's a Scandinavian delight. I would move into this place in a second. I think Scandinavian spaces are some of the most inviting, comfy spaces going. (Anyone want to take my 6 cats for a couple days so I can paint my floors white??? ANYONE????)

Mark Roskams


Once again I'm floored by the talent of a photographer. This is the portfolio of Mark Roskams. His studio is based in Florida and I'm not sure if that is why he excels at capturing colour or maybe it's innate. Hey it's not just colour, it's the light ... and the angle ... and composition, the clarity. Loving his work!
