There's a moodiness to the photos of Martyn Thompson. Beautiful painterly light and rich autumnal colour palette make them almost enigmatic. Yes that's what it is. His camera is like a paint brush. Internationally acclaimed Australian born Thompson's work ranges from editorial features in major magazines like British Vogue, House & Garden, Gourmet, Vogue Living Australia to advertising campaigns for Ralph Lauren and Hermes. In fact it was in Vogue Living Australia that I saw his beautiful floral shots. You can find them in his still life portfolio. These images are from his rep's site as his own is currently being updated.
Scott Waterman is an artist, a talented decorative painter and I'd like to add an incredible interior designer once I saw photos of his home. His decorative painting began with trompe l'oeil murals and the restoration of historic buildings. Amazing talent (click for larger images)...
His former home in San Francisco was featured in several shelter magazines and was absolutely breathtaking - so serene, romantic, captivating and filled with natural beauty. The creativity in these spaces is fascinating.
Scott has alot of ideas for his house and someday hopes to move his studio out of it, but in the meantime it's fantastic - the white makes his stunning and colourful artwork just come to life. Talk about multi-talented!! Thank you Scott for introducing us to your creative world.
Stunning photos today from the portfolio of photographer Eric Staudenmaier. Specialising in architectural and interior photography Eric is able to capture a designer's intentions with a space and through his lens take you into a room or place you on the sidewalk staring longingly at the building before you. His architectural folio is great but don't miss his personal work as well. I just had to include some of his garden shots. Check out the rest on his website. Your thumb will be turning green just looking at them.
A reader named Finn emailed the other day to tell us about a website she and her friends love to check out - The Modern House. It's an estate agency specializing in the sale of 20th and 21st century homes of architectural distinction across the UK. I went through several listings and picked out some of my favourite photographs. (Thanks Finn!)
I am home sick today (and yesterday) and while I should be sleeping the day away, we've received some emails from fellow bloggers and friends who've got some great new products that I wanted to share instead, because sleeping is boring.
