Camilla Julner

 

It's not about the words on Desire to Inspire. It's all about the eye candy. I could go on about the keen design eye and on the trend styling of Camilla Julner but her work tells the story. And inspiration doesn't always have to come from a complete room. Camilla's vignettes are overflowing for great ideas on colour, juxtaposition, texture. Hey too many words! Enjoy!

Stuart McIntyre

Jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring, mind-blowing...anyone with even the slightest appreciation for interior photography will likely use these adjectives when they see the photos below of Danish photographer Stuart McIntyre. His photography has me so mesmerized I may have to do an encore tomorrow. :)

Muskelil

Muskelil is Cassandra Karinsky and Valentina Pilia. It's a meeting of an Australian via the States and an Italian via Paris at a crossroads in Marrakech. Through Muskelil Valentina and Cassandra  share their special objects, interior styling and decor. Purveyors of the most beautiful Moroccan rugs. Their look is fresh but lived in, simple but sophisticated, so Moroccan but at home on a world stage. It's like they peeked inside my mind and stole my dreams of my perfect home.

Dining in the kitchen

Stacy emailed us recently asking for some inspiration for her sis: "We live in a very expensive "city" in the US, full of retirees, so the only affordable houses are either falling apart or brand new cookie cutter subdivision types. My sister and her husband are in the process of buying a new house and have chosen the new option. The kitchen, of course, consists of an L shape ...counters, cooktop, fridge, sink, dishwasher etc with no island or even room for one. I was wondering if you have a collection of rooms where the eating table is inside the kitchen? I would like to show her how she can make it look less boring in there." Hopefully the following photos of small-ish kitchens with mini dining areas will help Stacy's sister spice up her blah kitchen.

Reader's home

Reader Juan sent us a link to his home asking if we'd like to feature it. Yes please. A small studio space with kitchen and bath it is minimally furnished but with maximum style. A man of few words (in his emails at least) a google or two and I discover he is a talented graphic designer/illustrator/artist. His art wall collection is fab. The stacks of small art works, the plastic animal collection, the haphazard books, the cool stereo and wine bottles just waiting to have their corks pulled and wine glasses filled. It all speaks of one cool guy.
