"Architecture is the construction of ideas represented as sequences of space illuminated by natural light. These ideas form the spaces we live in, move through and feel better for having been in. Good architecture should make us feel safe and secure, confident and expressive, quiet and reflective. Good architecture should make our lives better." Sydney based architectural practice Carter Williamson wrote the words and their spaces justify them.
Schuyler Samperton is an L.A. based designer who's portfolio I love. I am a big fan of bold colours, but her portfolio of spaces filled with mostly muted colours just seems so relaxing and inviting. Her hits of colour are instead in vases of gorgeous flowers. What a simple way to inject some colour in a room (temporarily for those who are colour-phobic).
Paris based architect and designer Didier Gomez sums it up best on his website. "The furniture and spaces I create are meaningful only if they can improve daily life, promote fulfillment and create harmony in living areas." European in design but influenced by Didier's multicultural experiences the spaces are global in aesthetic. Oh ..... and stunning!
Eric Lysdahl is a New York based interior designer whose interiors have been featured in magazines such as House Beautiful, House & Garden, Elle Decor and Traditional Home. He has a passion for antiques which is quite evident in these photos. A bit too traditional for my taste but the furniture and its placement in his designs are so regal and beautiful it might just convert me.
