Francois Halard studied at the Ecole des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. He moved to New York City and began to photograph regularly with Vogue, Vanity Fair, GQ and House & Garden. From architecture to interiors and from lifestyle images to portraits his portfolio embraces the exquisite and inspiring. Many of these images will be familiar to you but no less beautifully captured by this leading photographer. See his portfolio here.
Arne Jacobsen designed the Egg Chair in 1958 for the lobby and reception areas at the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen. The Egg Chair continues to be one of Arne Jacobsen's most popular designs, mixing organic forms along with comfort. Love it, covet it, so want it!!

When I came across Finola Inger's website, I was so envious of her career as a stylist. To have access to such gorgeous items, and to display them in such a way that they photograph so beautifully. She's had 9 years of experience, has worked for Elle Decoration and dabbled in trend prediction, art direction, interior design and shop design. Her talent is evident in these photos.
I have noticed lately that I'm drawn to the colour yellow. I think it has to do with how much I love summer and yellow is such a beautiful summery colour. So I figured I'd do a post on different uses and ranges of yellow. Since I have basically no yellow in my home, this post is inspiration to change that.
Pale yellow walls are so warm and inviting, and would brighten up any room without being too jarring.

One of my favourite shades is acid yellow, for those who are a bit more daring and enjoy bold colours.

Bright yellow walls will bring a smile to anyone's face but would be tough to decorate (and live) with.

A yellow (and turquoise) country-style kitchen would have everyone milling around while food is prepared.

If yellow walls are too much to commit to, then how livening things up with some yellow art ....throw in some red accent furniture for an extra hit of colour and you're set.

Accents in yellow work with all sorts of colour schemes...reds, greens, pinks, blues, the list is surprisingly endless.
