Just a little something to brighten up your day. I'm in love with prop stylist Michele Michael's work. It's fun and young, bright and light, fresh and clean lined. These are rooms that aren't afraid of colour but are also calm. She's worked for mags like Real Simple and O the Oprah Magazine, House and Garden and Country Living. Enjoy!
Lisman Studio Interior Design is based in Salt Lake City and is made up of several talented designers. Their style is contemporary and is so well suited to a broad range of tastes. Very versatile, comfortable and so easy to love. My favourites - the graphic patterns, hits of warm colour and the glass display cabinets along the top of their kitchens.
I'm so lucky here in Australia. We have some of the best house magazines in the world. Lots of great homes featured, loads of big fat juicy pictures, resources, trends and the magazines aren't three quarters full of ads. My favourites include Vogue Living Australia, belle (it's about time they got a website) and Home Beautiful (this is improving leaps and bounds) but I guess if I had to name my all time favourite it would be a tie between Real Living and the magazine I'm featuring today - Inside Out. These are from their digital sampler. Just enough eye candy to get you hooked into a subscription and there's nothing better than flipping through the pages of an Australian magazine.
It's difficult to know where to begin with the portfolio of Swedish photographer Martin Löf. OK it's easy to see the guy has so much talent. It's easy to see that he gets to photograph the most amazing homes. It's easy to see that you just want to move in. What isn't easy is which one to call your favourite. They are all stunning photos! The first set is a story he shot of Swedish artist and interior decorator Carouschka Steijffert's home. Swoon!
And I couldn't leave without just a few more shots. The light, the colour, the composition ... everything is perfect. I'm so taken with his work. Catch it all here (and don't skip the intro).
First I would like to say a quick congratulations to my lil' sis Jen who got engaged last week. Her fiance Dave occasionally sends me links to photos and stories he thinks I may want to post on the blog. This one I HAD to post. I have mentionned that I have a very narrow house, being about 12' 2" wide, but the structures below are ridiculously narrow. I may never complain again about how annoying it is to decorate my narrow house. The first is in Paris, and the rest are in Japan where space is CLEARLY at a premium. (Thanks Dave, soon to be bro-in-law!)
