Architects Guard Tillman Pollock specialise in elegant, functional and modernist design. As their website says, "Drawing inspiration from the work of the early Modern Movement, the practice believes that good design should do more than merely resolve the brief; it should inspire and enhance the spirit." Take the time to view their extensive portfolio and marvel at their clean, crisp design solutions. I love the bed that slides on floor rails for those times when you just have to sleep under the stars. (P.S. Great barn conversion too.)
If I wasn't so busy tonight (it's Monday as I type this - I get posts ready the day before) trying to get my posts done so I have enough time to make a zucchini loaf from the giant zucchini my mom yanked out of her garden, I'd ramble on and on about how wonderful a photographer Ed Reeve is. Instead you can just see for yourself.
Andrew Suvalsky is a phenomenal interior designer based in New York who creates such dynamic, glamourous and visually stimulating spaces. Gorgeous dramatic colours (those royal blues are fabulous) and bathrooms so beautiful it's like he plucked them from my dreams. I bet that ultra-glam bedroom above would evoke quite a few unmentionable dreams... ;)
What do a Kylie Minogue video, fabulous furniture for Cappellini, home accessories, the Venice Architecture Biennale and jewellery have in common with this amazing Swedish home? Super talented design trio Claesson Koivisto Rune. Originally an architectural practice they soon developed into a design studio where they creative bent takes their design vision far and wide. This gorgeous home is just one of the design jewels they have created. Their website is a must.
Jo and I would like to welcome the folks of scandinavian.modern, based in Winnipeg, as our new sponsor. I just love being able to promote Canadians who know a thing or two about great furniture. If you love the mid-century variety, you MUST check them out. I have never seen so much gorgeous rosewood in one place. I think I've changed my mind about teak - rosewood is just stunning!!! Here's a bit about their shop:
"We hand pick and make available primarily original, vintage, mid-century modern, Danish and other Scandinavian furniture. We admire and stock pieces from such designers as Hans Wegner, Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl, Børge Mogensen, Kai Kristiansen, Arne Vodder, Ole Wanscher and Hans Olsen. We also stock pieces that may not have been designed by a well known designer but were crafted by elite danish cabinetmakers and are unique and showcase scandinavian functionality and appearance."
Here is a little peek at some of the (*drool*) items they've got in stock. LOOOVE the first one pictured - it's a table and a planter!
