Virginia MacDonald is a Canadian photographer whose work is all too familiar to me, as she's worked for several magazines that I subscribe to, such as Style at Home, Canadian House and Home and Canadian Home and Country. Her portfolio is full of bright, fresh spaces. And the kicker - her portfolio includes a selection of adorable animal photos that had me grinning from ear to ear.
Philippe Caillaud sent me a link to his blog Le Vol du Variable via a breathtaking image of butterflies. Clicking over I discovered that Phillippe is a French artist who works with plastic, paper and thousands of steel pins. According to my page translator his profile says "I am a contemporary artist who works around the lightness and soaring". Kim would be better at translating as she speaks French. We haven't featured artists very regularly lately and I just had to share. I'm dreaming of a hurricane spiral of butterflies on my dining room walls. Beautiful Phillippe, beautiful.
With clean modern lines referencing classical traditions New york based Area Interior Design also places emphasis on the use of environmentally responsible materials, products and building practices. Some very clever space saving solutions here especially for small space living. Love their bold use of colour balanced by crisp clean white.
Prop stylist and set designer Lili Abir Regen has a jaw-dropping portfolio that is just one incredible space after another, and we've posted several photos of her work before. For kicks, check out her editorial portfolio - talk about creative!
