Subtle changes powerful impact

You've seen this house before in magazines, product shoots and here on Desire to Inspire. It's location78, the East London photographic location house of photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes and stylist Jo Atkins-Hughes. Their design, their styling, their business. Look more closely and you'll see them, the subtle changes that have taken this house to the next level. A few well chosen pieces of furniture and new accessories, touches of new colour (including a black living room), warm timber tones have added a life and a warmth to an already amazing house. To cap it all are these fabulous new photos by Graham. A new look at old favourites, a peek at spaces we haven't seen before and an exuberant garden that is the perfect foil for the moody maturity of the interiors. I couldn't make up my mind which photos to leave in or out. I'm guilty, I'm afraid Graham, of using almost all of them. Available for location hire ... maybe I could hire it permanently and move on in.

P.S. Launching soon an online shop at their website sevenandeight.com and they have started a blog. I'm sure they'll let us know when they have all the content ready.

Reader requests - backsplash and home office

Reader request time! This one (actually 2) comes from Malou: "My husband and I are constantly inspired by your posts. We're hoping you can help us with ideas for:1. kitchen backsplashes for an all kitchen with white cabinets and dark gray floors   2. home office with tables in the middle". Simple enough. So here are some white kitchens, most with grey floors, that have some ideas for backsplashes. After the jump are some offices with tables/desks in the middle of the space.

Kevin O'Shea

Kevin O'Shea emailed yesterday with a submission to the next Monday's Pets on Furniture post, and I noticed his signature included a link to Kevin O'Shea Designs. Turns out Kevin is an interior designer based in New York City and Provincetown, Massachusetts. His firm is brand spanking new, having only been launched in the summer of 2009. He's got a great eye and believes in creating comfortable and timeless spaces. Below are photos from his portfolio, with more after the jump, including info on a HUGE project he's currently working on (and a few "before" photos). I cannot wait to see how it turns out!!!
