Annie Schlechter

New York photographer Annie Schlechter is my idol. I have been a fan of her work for years. I envy her stellar photography skills and her good fortune of having been up close and personal with some really beautiful interiors (like Eva Dayton's home in the first 2 photos).

A home in Little Venice - a second try

Another post from last week where photos were not displaying correctly...

The folks over at DOS Architects have completed yet another stellar project in London. This one is located in the 'hood of Little Venice. The glass atrium at the rear of the home housing the dining room is such a beautiful space. I would spend all of my time in there eating, working, having dinner parties and summer barbecues... And the icing on the cake - the large, stunning photograph above the credenza and the Tom Dixon Beat lights taking pride of place above the table. (More of DOS' work here and here)

Copper exposed - a second try

Another post from last week where photos were not displaying correctly...

I mentioned back in this post that I loved exposed copper piping. Coincidentally, I came across an apartment in Amsterdam designed by Ijzersterk Interieurontwerp where exposed copper pipes snake through the living room, hallway and bedroom. To play off this theme, the designers included a copper coloured wall covering and chairs in the dining room and a matching butterscotch leather sofa and stool in the living room (among other things). I love me some exposed pipe...and some copper! (Photos by Figure of Speech)

Mona Ross Berman - a second try

I thought I would redo the posts from last week that were not displaying properly for most people. (I still don't know what the hell happened). And these will replace Monday's pets on furniture because I didn't receive enough entries.(

 

According to Mona Ross Berman's website, she is a Philadelphia interior designer whose work is always classic, clean, and tailored – but with a fresh twist. I absolutely see the fresh twist. In each space there is colour, pattern, texture, and just the right amount of bold to keep it classy. Fresh and fun.

The fisherman's cottage

I couldn't help myself. I had to revisit the generalist one more time. A 1940s waterfront cottage, an architect and a desire to recycle, reuse and celebrate the found instead of a rip it down, slap up something mega and new. My type of home filled with memories and little treasures. A place for family and friends to live life, share love and renew spirits. To find out who and why and where and how head to the generalist here.

(Thanks to the generalist team for the images!)
