Checklist for a great photo. Beautiful light - check. Interesting composition, intriguing angles, inspired crop - check. Fab sense of colour - check. Ability to reach into a space and capture it's meaning and soul - a definite must! Carlos Domenech ticks all the right boxes and then a whole lot more. The finest houses by the best designers have been shot by this Miami based photographer but I chose the church interior as the first image because it captures the essence, the truth of the building so well. Check out Carlos' fine art photography here as well. Beautiful.
I am STILL super busy, and after tomorrow my life should be back to it's usual hectic pace. I have a ton of stuff to get done today, and tonight I am going to see my coworker Jack and his wife Shannon (Jupiter Ray Project) perform at the National Arts Centre. I thought I'd give them a plug because their music is awesome and Jack has been on parental leave since March and I miss him. Anyway, while I scarfed down breakfast I went through my sister's photo stash and found some random photos for a Thursday.
Imagine having this as your view everyday. Imagine a lovely bright white home with vintage finds and warm wood. Imagine a casual Australian beach lifestyle. Then walk down the long wooden stairs to the boathouse and realise just how lucky you are to live here. And if you have enough energy then pour yourself a white wine and wander down to the end of your jetty. Life would be so tough if this was your home. The property is for sale in Sorrento, Victoria. Perhaps if we pool our money we could share it.
I just got home from work and I have sooooo much to do so this is going to be a quickie. I LOVE this photo. Such a cool idea for desk legs. Though not sure how practical that is because mags stacked that high tend to slip.
Wonderful modern homes designed by Melbourne architectural and interior design studio Clare Cousins Architects. I love the use of unusual materials and colour particularly the turquoise colour blocking. These are great examples of integration of internal spaces with the outdoors, so important in climates like Australia's. It's all to do with sympathetic orientation, materials and building design. No McMansions here, just stylish contemporary dwellings that are not only comfortable family homes but break out of the cookie cutter mentality. I've included some of their commercial work too. Such clever ideas, the shelves, the simple paper lanterns.
