Marcus Lawett

Time for another great photographer. Love the white white white and that light ... gotta be a Scandinavian snapper. (The IKEA shots are a give away too.) Love the softly darkling of his shots. Softly darkling?  OK I made that up but you know what I mean! Marcus Lawett is the super talented photographer and if you recognise some of the shots it will be because they were styled by Sofie Andersson, now Sofie Lawett. My Swedish obsession continues. More after the jump.

Home and decor in Singapore

Back in April I blogged about a magazine from Singapore called Home & Decor that our wee blog was featured in. My list of favourite shleter magazines from around the world is slowly growing, and this one tops the list. Singaporeans are some super stylin' folks! They seem to love colour, light airy spaces, and modern furnishings. Here are some photos from their website that really caught my eye.

Paul Gervais

Today is another garden day. Unlike yesterday's post these gardens are more formal. Clipped and manicured, trellised and trained. Elegant and sophisticated and in dreamy far away climes. Olive groves glimpsed over stone walls, terracotta complimenting lush green grass. It's broad brush strokes and attention to detail. I'm in love with the fantasy of these glorious gardens by Paul Gervais.

Charles de Lisle workshop

Charles de Lisle Workshop is a San Francisco based design firm and it's principal is a new favourite designer of mine. His experience spans the last 25 years working within the art of ceramics, metalwork, custom furniture, product design, decoration and interiors. His work has been featured in every major shelter magazine such as Interior Design, Dwell, Sunset and California Home + Design. While devouring his website, I came across the William Wurster Ranch in Portola Valley California and HAD to post this home here on DTI. It's a mid-century modern and vintage masterpiece that is so full of character and intruiging furnishings and finishes.

Arterra

A steady rain is falling outside my window. It has been a dry winter and any rain is a blessing. My mind is turning to the coming spring and it's a perfect time to look into the portfolio of San Francisco based Arterra Landscape Architects. Their work is contemporary and meaningful, sustainable and spirited. I love that they describe themselves as a "diverse and slightly quirky group of creative and nerdy individuals". Sounds just like the sort of design firm that I'd love to entrust my gardens to. This first family garden caught my eye but there are so many inspiring landscapes, big and small, after the jump.
