Asfour Guzy Architects is a New York based firm that was founded 20 years ago by partners Edward Asfour and Peter Guzy. Love their versatility. From modern lofts with exposed steel beams to rustic residences far from the city, they do it all.
Susann Larsson is an interior designer from Malmö, Sweden. You'll know her as the creative force behind one of my most favourite blogs Purple Area. (I'm there everyday drinking it all in.) This is Susann's home. Gorgeous! It's quite minimalist, simple and clean but still a wonderfully warm and individual family home. Love that wall of books and yet another example that not all Scandinavian design is white. Oh no it's all grown up grey in this purple area!
The May issue of Canadian House & Home is one of my all-time favourite issues. This is due mainly because of the feature of Vancouver designer April Tidey's loft and cottage (some photos of which are below). They are filled with such creative and eclectic ideas, and such a variety of different styles. This appears to be her signature look, the mix of ornate antiques, mid century modern furnishings and bold accessories. I LOVE that, because it creates such intriguing spaces where you're bound to find something eye-catching at every turn.
The photography below is that of Heather Ross, a multi-talented Vancouverite who not only takes fabulous photos but has a boutique of antique finds, accessories, textiles, her photography etc. and also creates stunning paintings that she sells in her shop. Do go have a looksie here.
