I am almost at a loss of words for an intro to this incredibly talented photographer's work. What can I say about James Merrell, who was fortunate enough to photograph the apartment of Linda Wary and John Meyers, which is one of my favourite spaces EVER!!! So I think I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
Ah the 80s! Era of large hair, even larger shoulder pads, leg warmers with high heels and excess excess excess. There were some things that were good. New Romantic boy bands with smoky eyeliner and rat's tails in their hair for one thing. OK OK I was a med student in the 80s not an interior designer so my taste may have been a little dubious. It was a mixed bag of an era just like these kitchens from the early 80s but good design would shine through occasionally. Images scanned from Beyond the Kitchen, A Dreamers Guide, Thomas Cowan, Blandford Press, Dorset, 1985.
While some of these kitchens are revolting some are not. This is part of my subversive campaign to bring back the 80s. Long live the decade that taste forgot!
Laura Resen is a New York based photographer whose work is stellar! Starting as a fashion model and moving on to picture editor and art director Laura is now showcasing her talent as a photographer. Her portfolio is breathtaking. Don't just check out the interiors take it all in. Her own website is still under construction. These images are from Art Rep Team.
The title of this post is a phrase composed by Noam Chomsky that essentially means nothing. It does however have the word "green" in it, and this post is about rooms with lovely green walls, because the other day a reader left a comment that photos of green rooms were hard to come by. I had a few stashed away...

Todhunter Earle Interiors is the partnership of Kate Earle and Emily Todhunter, who not only create fabulous spaces but employ three product designers who design fabric, wallpaper, lamps and rugs and furniture for their clients. Their designs are for the most part contemporary, and I fell in love with their work once I saw the photo above. Gorgeous!!!
