Locations, locations

I'm loving the whitest of white walls in this location house in London. I'm kinda smitten by the touches of black too. My inspiration files are groaning with images just like these. (OK and a lot of deepest darekest black too.) Good news on my new old house front is that the painters start next week. We'll be painted in time for Christmas .... I hope. Means I have to stop unpacking until each room is done :) You can see what a state my messy office is in on my page. Think of it as a before. Meanwhile this fab home is from the 1st-Option location stable. Delish isn't it?

Andrew Grinton

We received a tip the other day from a reader named Wilson regarding the photography of Torontonian Andrew Grinton. I am shocked we have not blogged his work before because it's fantastic. Wilson's comment was that Andrew is a cross between 2 of my favourite photographers, Ditte Isager and Anders Schonnemann. His still life portfolio is exquisite, and my favourites are below along with some interiors. Thanks Wilson!

UPDATE: I discovered that the first photo and a couple others below are being featured in an upcoming issue of one of my favourite new online mags (Canadian!) Covet Garden. Be sure to check out this special second issue for December when it goes live on the 15th!!!!!!

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ....

and I have done nothing! Hey I'm still unpacking. I have an excuse! Love the Christmas styling by Mikael Beckman (thanks for the all the links Mikael!) for Svenskt Tenn. Please Santa if you need any ideas for gifts just peruse their website. I'll take one of anything.

P.S. There is more before footage of my new old house over on my page!

Swedish stalking

Real estate stalking is a global phenomenon. It crosses all boarders and infects all races. Well all of us who are design freaks anyway ;) Stylist Mikael Beckman has it as bad as I do. He sent us this link to an amazing house 30 minutes from the centre of Stockholm. Perfect combination of mid century modern, land and lifestyle.
