It's a week for wishing. This time I wish that Danish photographer Tia Borgsmidt would update her site. Please. I love what I've seen already but I'd love to see more, lots more and I'm dreaming of digital photos and beautiful large images because let's face it Tia has talent! I love the colours and that bright white light that seems to be a trademark of Danish photographers and magazines.
Last year I posted about New York design firm 2Michaels, founded by twins Joan and Jayne. Joan emailed the other day to let us know that both her and her sister's apartments were featured in a recent issue of Interior Design. Joan lives in Jayne's former 1,200 sq ft apartment, "the cheapest two-bed, two-bath on the Upper West Side" while Jayne scored an affordable 1,100 sq ft Midtown apartment with East River views that had been untouched by the former owner for 40 years. Jayne's apartment required alot of work while Joan's required alot of furniture (she moved in with only 3 pieces). The results of both apartments is a mid-century vintage vibe and lots of iconic furniture and accessories, and so much stunning artwork. (Thanks Joan and Jayne for sharing your homes with us!)
This first group of photos is Jayne's apartment.
These next photos are of Joan's apartment.
Lovin' the portfolio of Brooklyn photographer Lara Robby. Bright, light, fun and fresh. Love the colours and the craft station ideas but most of all love the way Lara shots and scores with simple composition and lovely light. I still wish I wrote a food blog because then I could feature her fab food portfolio. Yummy!
I saw this today on a local paper's website (Ottawa Citizen) and had to share it. How gorgeous is this apple (or acid) green kitchen?!?! It is Daniel and Helene Gauthier's kitchen in their 2 bedroom, 850 sq ft downtown condo. (Perhaps it is so fab because Daniel is senior kitchen designer for Potvin Kitchen & Bath). They are very brave to have such a bold colour used so abundantly in their kitchen. Fantastic!!
Parisian photographer Nicolas Mathéus has a portfolio full of drop-dead gorgeous photos. Bathed in beautiful light, the spaces seem magical and pull you in, begging you to sit at one of the dining tables and enjoy a meal or have a wonderful sleep in one of the beds. I'll take that last bed - that's been a dream of mine forever, to sleep in a bed under the stars (preferably not in mosquito season).
