New Zealand has a great shelter magazine called Your Home and Garden, which I've never personally seen, but they've got a website with some fabulous inspirational images. "Inspiration you can use" as their slogan goes. Very achievable interiors for everyday people. Love that.
Alexandra Loew and Lauren Soloff are from the desk of lola. Love their description of their design firm, "The ladies of Lola have created a unique practice that takes seriously one thing that architectural profession has too frequently overlooked: decoration." Yah! Fun, quirky at times and drop dead gorgeous their interiors scream "come on in, have a drink". First prize too for the best name for a fabulous design firm!
We have written about light and photographers over and over on this blog. It's a no brainer. Cameras capture light. It's how a photographer manipulates that light though that defines a great photo. New York based fine art and commercial photographer Don Freeman uses his camera not only to revel in the light but to portray the feel of his subject. "I like the mood of Interiors. I feel I can represent the spirit of a place by observing how the daylight reveals its secrets... why we find perfection and beauty in it." Don't miss his still life and fine art portfolios on his website while you're there.
