Crushin' on Michael Graydon

I am still crushing hard for Toronto photographer Michael Graydon (I showed my devotion to his work here). His photos are scattered all over just about every Canadian shelter magazine around, and they are simply magical. He makes me want to be a part of each room he has captured....especially the ones below.

Wonder

Wonder. Inspiration and delight. Transformations. Adventure. Journeys and delivery. Passion and performance. Fascination, appreciation and execution. The wonder that is Wonder, a Melbourne based interior architecture firm founded by Georgina Jeffries and Pip McCully. Two homes, one in Armadale, one in Prahran. Eclectic materials, textures, light flooding in, clean lines and attention to the client's needs. Modern yet timeless.

P.S. If you think you recognise some of the images from the first home then you do. The photographer was Paul Barbera whose work I recently featured (here). The second house was shot by Christine Francis.

A FINNE house

The latest house by Nils Finne is perched on the shore of the Hood Canal, a long, fjord-like arm of Puget Sound in Washington State. Opening up the mostly glazed living space gives the compact 2400 SF space the feel of a large front porch facing the water. Anchoring the north end of the living space is a two-story building volume containing several bedrooms and separate his/her office spaces. Simple yet elegant finishes make this more than a lake front cabin though. A special place far from the madding crowd but definitely not far from creature comforts. It's this sustainable "richness" and well as a strong sense of place that FINNE Architects bring to life in all their projects.

Incorporated - part 3

Recently I blogged some work by NY based architecture and design firm Incorporated (here, here and here) and because I am now a huge fan, I thought I'd feature another of their projects. This one is a fantastic light-filled apartment whose owners clearly enjoy quirky furnishings. I'm really now sure about that Franz West dining set but I have loved that WrongWoods credenza since it first came on the design scene.

Deborah Berke revisit


It has been years since I blogged the work of New York architecture firm Deborah Berke & Partners. I am still a big fan as the homes they have designed are subtle, refined, timeless and show a meticulous attention to detail.
