The work of Australian photographer Paul Barbera is magical. He incorporates shadows in such incredible ways, and thus lighting plays an integral part in his photographs. Simple rooms look so much more beautiful through his eyes than a cluttered room ever would.
New Zealand has a great shelter magazine called Your Home and Garden, which I've never personally seen, but they've got a website with some fabulous inspirational images. "Inspiration you can use" as their slogan goes. Very achievable interiors for everyday people. Love that.
Alexandra Loew and Lauren Soloff are from the desk of lola. Love their description of their design firm, "The ladies of Lola have created a unique practice that takes seriously one thing that architectural profession has too frequently overlooked: decoration." Yah! Fun, quirky at times and drop dead gorgeous their interiors scream "come on in, have a drink". First prize too for the best name for a fabulous design firm!
