I had a FANTASTIC morning (thanks to Jordan and his wife for the memorable and fun experience) and now that the extra chaos has ended my regularly scheduled posts will commence next week. In the meantime, here is a quick post of vignettes to end the week. Have a great weekend!
"Sander Architects seeks to find a balance between poetry and pragmatics. Starting with essential elements: environment, program, site restrictions, we encourage forms to develop which satisfy these basic needs while embracing the possibility of the poetic." And it's true! Beautiful sensitive and creative designs that are also at the forefront of green design.It's all about the power of light and space, site and spirit. I've concentrated on mainly interiors here but a visit to Whitney Sander's design firm's website reveals so much more including detailed explanations of each highly crafted building.
Checklist for a great photo. Beautiful light - check. Interesting composition, intriguing angles, inspired crop - check. Fab sense of colour - check. Ability to reach into a space and capture it's meaning and soul - a definite must! Carlos Domenech ticks all the right boxes and then a whole lot more. The finest houses by the best designers have been shot by this Miami based photographer but I chose the church interior as the first image because it captures the essence, the truth of the building so well. Check out Carlos' fine art photography here as well. Beautiful.
I am STILL super busy, and after tomorrow my life should be back to it's usual hectic pace. I have a ton of stuff to get done today, and tonight I am going to see my coworker Jack and his wife Shannon (Jupiter Ray Project) perform at the National Arts Centre. I thought I'd give them a plug because their music is awesome and Jack has been on parental leave since March and I miss him. Anyway, while I scarfed down breakfast I went through my sister's photo stash and found some random photos for a Thursday.
Imagine having this as your view everyday. Imagine a lovely bright white home with vintage finds and warm wood. Imagine a casual Australian beach lifestyle. Then walk down the long wooden stairs to the boathouse and realise just how lucky you are to live here. And if you have enough energy then pour yourself a white wine and wander down to the end of your jetty. Life would be so tough if this was your home. The property is for sale in Sorrento, Victoria. Perhaps if we pool our money we could share it.
