Love great rooms? Love great rooms photographed by talented photographers? Of course we do! And what's not to love about Ben Anders' portfolio. The light is fabulous and the composition and angles are just the thing to draw you in. Vignettes are the key to building the intrigue. I've taken these from his rep's site Oak Management but there are so many more on his own site.
Hot off the presses - Mae Brunken is at it again. Jo posted about this talented interior designer the other day and her peeps emailed us this evening to show us Mae's latest project. It's such an amazing transformation that I wanted to post it ASAP.
Here's a bit of info on the space: "Mae Brunken Design is adding the finishing polish to the guest quarters of a Pacific Palisades estate. Previously tasked to re-design the main property, Mae Brunken returned to update the poolside guest quarters. Re-designed to be a writer’s office and artistic escape, housing the owners’ additional guests as well as providing extra storage, the project is a great example of the new interior design trend: Maintaining luxury through practicality."
Some before photos...
Here are some specifics as to what Mae did to transform the room: "Natural linen window treatments with contrasting yellow trim soften the space while providing privacy. The furnishings are both versatile and comfortable, with a custom daybed doubling as a resting place for both the afternoon writer and the overnight guest. The Eames ivory lounge chair and ottoman accentuate this versatility, implementing a vintage modern office aesthetic and maximum at-home comfort. The desk is the functional focal point of the room, made of rich macassar ebony zebrawood and offset by a polished stainless task lamp. A Suzanne Sharp rug from The Rug Company in yellow, gray and ivory warms up the room and also presents a graphic background. In addition to accommodating a writer and guests, the guest quarters also delivers additional storage space. Made of the same macassar ebony wood as the desk, the opposing wall has been fitted with filing drawers that also double as nightstands, and bookshelves that house awards and reference." Summed up in one word - PERFECTION.
'Our priority is to create environments that are immensely comfortable and effortlessly good looking.’ Comfortable and effortless are spot-on words to describe the interiors of Charlotte Crosland. Mostly traditional yet timeless spaces with elements in each to add a hint of modernity. Like the HUGE bull print hanging in the kitchen. Now that's bold.
An updated website is a beautiful thing. I love Michael Grimm's work (previous post here) but what's better than an extremely talented photographer whose work is strong and bold and beautiful? An extremely talented photographer with new photos to enjoy. And what can I say about that top photo? Just that on a clear day I bet they can see heaven from their deck.
Luxurious, classy, decadent, elegant, sophisticated...these are just a few words that came to mind when I found the portfolio of London-based interior design firm Grant White Design. (Grant's fondness for yellow makes me crave a little sunshine in my home).
