Keith Scott Morton

With work published in leading design magazines including Country Living, House Beautiful, Cottages & Gardens, British House & Garden and Coastal Living it is easy to see why I'm crushing on photographer Keith Scott Morton. It's a soft, relaxed look at a more traditional style but definitely not stuffy. Oh no not stuffy. It's fresh like sunshine dried sheets, warm like well polished furniture and comfortable as that old family chair. It's amazing though that Keith ventures out to take such wonderful photos. He lives at the most wonderful Old Orchard Nursery on Long Island. What a life!

Cool kitchen layout

This kitchen was included in a recent feature in Real Living magazine - part of the home of a fashion designer and her family. When they renovated the kitchen, new cabinets were installed in an island-style layout since the kitchen is in the middle of the living space. GENIUS!

The homeowners aren't fans of TVs being a focal point so they had the TV built into the back of the island. Once again, GENIUS!

Shawn Henderson update

It's been a while since we visited the projects of interior designer Shawn Henderson, and I recently discovered that he has some new work on his website that I had to share. Still a big fan of his sense of scale and netutral colour palette, his kids rooms are alot of fun and I see he's still a big fan of Wegner's Papa Bear chair (oh, to own one of those...). The first 10 or so photos are of a sweet central park pad. *sigh*

Spring out of bed

Is winter on the wane in the northern hemisphere? Is spring whispering promises of things to come? If it is still all winter gloom in your neck of the woods then do I have the picture to cheer you up. By the super snapper Petra Bindel via Agent Bauer. The woman is a genius.

Indiana Foord

Fabulous rooms by Australian stylist Indiana Foord (via KHM). Once again I'm drawn to simple clean aesthetic. Ordinary beauty in extraordinary spaces. I'm coveting all of them and isn't that what a good stylist does? Creates the dream, displays the dream, sells the dream.
