Just a quick word to say thank you to everyone who has nominated desire to inspire on Apartment Therapy's The Homies - best design blogs of 2008. I am really touched that a bunch of you out there enjoy what we do that much. Means alot to Jo and I. I'd go nominate some blogs but I don't think they want me listing everyone on our blogroll.
I thought I was DONE with anything white, as I have just about had it with the snow we've gotten already this winter. But I can handle a bit more white, such as the following photos from the architecture firm RB Arkitektur based in Stockholm, where white was born.
It's a masculine look complete with fine antiques, a dark palette and simple yet luxurious lines. Sydney based interior designer Thomas Hamel creates rooms that have a gentleman's club feel, a patrician look that speaks of taste and style not glitz and glam. (He worked in his early career for Parish-Hadley.) It's leather and linen, parchment and the warm patina of old furniture, dark and brooding at times and at others light filled.
Genevieve Wiseman is a prop stylist from Toronto who has worked for some of my favourite Canadian magazines like House & Home and Style at Home, and has worked with several photographers we've featured. She was kind enough to send over some more photos than she currently has on her website. So pretty, and so beautifully styled. Lovely Genevieve!
