Clink Wharf apartment

I love this minimalist loft apartment by designed by Chaira Ferrari Studio (especially the exposed brick, and the lighting by Chiara over the kitchen table). A former photographer's studio by the Thames has been transformed into a minimal contemporary apartment with an element of its industrial past. The layout is centred around the spacious main corridor that ends in a high-ceilinged open plan living and dining area that offers uninterrupted views of the river. A master bedroom with en suite, two extra bedrooms, a bathroom and a study area are designed to maximize space. Existing features of the building have been revealed; the original brickwork offsets the modern elements, such as the smooth Corian kitchen worktop, which features a bespoke curved backsplash surface.

A converted stable

We have blogged many conversions on the blog, mostly churches but we have blogged a few stables. I think this one is my favourite. It's so beautiful - especially the juxstaposition of white against the original timber stable walls. I could absolutely live here. I'd have to do a smell test first though. If it still smelled like horse I'd leave it for someone else. ;) Via AR Design Studio

Teri Lyn Fisher

Teri Lyn Fisher's photos are always a great pick-me-up (they were back here) and I know I could use a dose of loveliness today after a 4 day long weekend. It's always hard to go back to the day job after some time off. Not that I ever really have time off....

David A. Land

I believe you can tell when a photographer has a strong sense of place, an understanding of architecture, an appreciation of the beauty of a room. It shows. In the pictures. a certain something. Images come to life. Simple things are suddenly special. Light weaves magic and a two dimensional image tells a story. welcome to the portfolio of photographer David A. Land.
