Bill Kingston

Another super talented photographer! Once again a fabulous portfolio with great lighting and composition. Bill Kingston has the rare talent of giving life to inanimate objects and spaces. I feel like I could step into these photos and continue my life there. He has imbued this images with a sense of being. Do you think the girl in the second photo would make me a cup of tea?


Pia in Paris

Pia Jane Bijkerk just wrote to tell us about her latest project, an eight-page spread she produced and photographed in Paris seen in this month's issue of Home Beautiful. She'll be posting the whole story on her blog, and the story cover is so gorgeous I can't wait to see the rest!


Inspiration for a bathroom renovation

We received an email from Pooja who is looking for some help with her bathroom: "my husband and i are planning a small bathroom renovation and are stuck for ideas. we know we would like to use subway tiles (as the building was built in the 1930s) and are scouring the web for inspiration. i've pulled a few photos from your blog for our contractor, but was hoping to inspire you to post a few ideas for us." I found some subway tile photos but I also grabbed a few photos with other ideas, like painted wood paneling and square tiles for other options. Good luck with the renovation Pooja, and make sure to send us photos!

Ami McKay

Ami McKay is a Canadian designer from Vancouver with impeccable taste. She is the designer on Makeover Wish, an HGTV series that rewards local British Columbia heroes with a $25,000 home makeover (not sure if it's still on the air). Fun and fresh style creates spaces that are energetic and inviting. And she's not afraid to use wallpaper!


Jeremy Samuelson

Sometimes with web surfing things get a little bland, a little so so. Then suddenly you find a website that is just so inspiring. Prepare to be amazed! Photographer Jeremy Samuelson has a breathtaking portfolio. Imaginatively displayed as a series of books with each turn of the page there is another stunning image filling the whole screen. Lighting, composition, depth of field, colour. You can be amazed by his technique or you can just let his fabulous talent wash over you. Must check the archives for more of his work and his list of clients will let you know how highly esteemed he is in the industry. Am I gushing? You betcha!
