Landon Collis

  

More great photography! Landon Collis has a great eye for composition, interesting angles and crop and wonderful light and shadows. While my last photographer crush was all about simplicity and serenity, these are about detail. There is almost a sense of movement, of turning and catching a glimpse of yet another inspiring scene, that if you're not quick you'll miss something. Busy rooms captured in a clever snapshot. Time stands still through the lens and we get to pick over the details, find what inspires us.

George Seper

While I attempt to not pass out from heat stroke in my house (my thermostat is reading 85°), please enjoy some wonderful photography from American born, award-winning George Seper (now located in Sydney, Australia).

Ray Main

Beautiful images of beautiful rooms. Strangely calm, restrained and elegant in their simplicity these photographs are by British photographer Ray Main. People often ask why we go on and on about the photographer and not the designer or owner. Besides the fact that we will always acknowledge the site where we find the images we use, it is the photographer that captures the beauty of the room for us to see and fall in love with. I'm sure that if we all traipsed through these rooms we'd love what we saw (after several thousand of us had trampled through) but because we can't artists like Ray transport us there, we gasp and mentally note all we love and Ray's job is done. He has captured all that inspires us. He has communicated the beauty. So much more after the jump.

Ina & Matt

I had a very VERY busy long weekend filled with driving furniture across the city, painting, hanging shelves, organizing my clothes and helping cats #8 and #9 adapt to living at my house. I wasn't sure I was going to have time to get a post ready for Tuesday but it's so freaking hot here (34°C with the humidity and it's 8:09 pm Monday night) that I need a short break. I found some interior design works of Netherland-based Studio Ina-Matt in a magazine recently (can't remember which one - I bought a stack of them when I hung out with my sister at the hospital a few weeks ago when her husband had a brain tumour removed) and their website is under mostly construction so I don't really have any background on them. Doesn't really matter as these photos speak for themselves. Their kitchens are divine, ones that I have only seen in my dreams I'm telling ya. Rustic and totally gorgeous. Perfectly understated.

Off the shelf retro

I'm still flipping through the pages of Storage, A House and Garden Book, Melinda Davis, Pantheon Books, New York, 1978. Fab homes and fab ideas. I'd move right in to any of them. OK I lie. I just can't do primary colours. Never could. So no red chairs and green walls and what I think is the world's largest stack of Componibili storage units. I will however spend tonight dreaming of the Shaker room. Sigh. Don't forget that there is more retro deliciousness after the jump.
