Coddington Design


Another website update and more great pictures. Melanie Coddington and her team at Coddington Design have loaded their site with their latest work (see our earlier feature here) and it doesn't disappoint. A rich colour palette of blues and greens mixed with luxe fabrics and custom furniture results in elegant rooms that are serene and sophisticated. Fresh and stylish!

Pup in a tub and a carboard chair

This is somewhat of a random post but today I received lots of interesting emails while I was at my day job, and a couple I thought I'd quickly post about.

The first blew me away, as I am a sucker for animals as many of you know and this photo is priceless. Donna of Nashville wrote: "Your beautiful pics have inspired me in my home. Here is a pic of my sweet Eloise in a tub. I like to think that our bathroom is the color of the horizon before sunrise, that light grey-purple of dawn." Sorry Donna but I'm having a hard time focusing on the bathroom when you've got the most adorable puppy ever sitting in the tub! (Thank you for sending this photo!!)


Now, nowhere near as cute as the puppy is a chair that both my boyfriend and my sister's fiance emailed me about. It's the sexiest cardboard chair I've ever seen, inspired by a Volvo C30 taillight. (As much as I'd love something like this in my home, it would immediately become a scratching post). Thanks Jeff and Dave!

Mark Roshams encore

Jo posted some beautiful photos from the portfolio of photographer Mark Roshams back in July and there is so much more loveliness I found when I happened upon his site recently, that an encore was a must.

OMG ...


... what were they thinking? A study in the bathroom? Forget the idea of a parents' retreat, even a phone by the toilet or a TV above the bath. Is this taking it a bit far? The only person I know how corresponded from the bathroom met a sticky (or should that be soggy) end. I'll be back with more retro bathing beauties from Making the most of Bedrooms & Bathrooms, by Mary Gilliatt, Orbis Publishing, London, 1983 later in the week.

Paul Whicheloe


There's nothing I love more than a great photography portfolio. Except ... an updated portfolio with even more fabulous photos. Paul Whicheloe is somewhat of a regular on Desire to Inspire, here and here again, and why not when this New York based photographer keeps producing work of this caliber. Well Paul emailed to let us know that he has redesigned and updated his website. I love his interior work but don't miss his landscape series. Other worldly.
