OK. I know. It's another old terrace house with a modern extension and an open plan kitchen living area. It's modern architecture not only added on but it has seemingly insinuated itself through the house's old bones. I know the purists will hate it, those who cherish historical restoration and those who herald modernism. I know. I know. It's an architectural chimera and I love it. I'm stalking the cheek to jowl terrace houses of Darlinghurst, Sydney and I couldn't be happier. Link here while it lasts.
Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canadians! I am still trying to recuperate from the massive feast I shared with my family last night (turkey and ALL the fixings, plus 3 types of pie), and somehow I have to get some work done around the house. My paint supplies provided by Farrow & Ball arrived last week for my living room and I am so freaking excited to get started. I went with down pipe in estate emulsion for the walls, down pipe in full gloss for all of the trim (YES! I am painting out the mahogany!) and fireplace, and plummett in estate emulsion for the ceiling. Today husband and I have to deal with the ugly nooks in on either side of the west facing window. All that to say, I have alot to do on this holiday Monday, so I leave you with this really funky little apartment in Moscow via The Village. (Sorry, short on pet entries again this week)
It's not that he doesn't take great photographs. It's not that the houses he shoots aren't amazing. No what makes me love London based photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes' body of work is his understanding of mood and atmosphere, space and light. How we inhabit spaces and, as the viewer of his photos, how we react to them. Oh and the photos are great too and the houses amazing. Here is his latest shoot, Art House of Hackney.
