Entries in blue (46)
Grey days are a drag. Misty rain, cold, nothing to do. I'm bored. Flicking through a favourite international magazine (Livingetc) I spy a familiar name. Hello! I haven't dropped by Damian Russell's website for quite some time. I was not disappointed. I've called him a pied piper of photography. I have followed him through many a house through his lens. A weaver of dreams, a story teller and a great big tease. Tempt me with beautiful photos of beautiful rooms on this grey, grey day will you Mr Russell? Oh alright if you must!
Take me away this long, lonely Monday to the island of Föhr off the north coast of Germany. To a hay barn cleverly converted to a holiday home. Ancient brick and thatch enclose a modern renovation that references the island's history of bed-boxes and the traditional blue green colours of Friesland. Wood and tile and 500m of blue polypropylene rope. By Swedish firm Karin Matz Arkitekt.
Monday already? Oh no! I can't face it! I'm running away to the beach at Bondi in Sydney. I'm taking this cute as a button holiday apartment for a week or two. It goes by the name of Blue Belle. If only I could! The perfect base for relaxation and exploration. Neutral interiors with raw woods and rattan with accents of red and blue. Industrial meets beach chic and rustic and loads of lovely light. Interiors and design by Kathy Collins of Urban Splash.
