Monday eye candy

I may be short on pet submissions this week (come on folks - send me pets on furniture photos! kim[at]desiretoinspire[dot]net), but I have something to make up for the lack of a pet post. Some stunning interior eye candy photographed by British duo Tim Brotherton and Katie Lock. Now if you will excuse me, I am going to hop into the photo above, light a fire and flop on the sofa for the remainder of the morning.

Blue light

Speaking of perfection ... sigh. Like swimming in a sea of blue light. From the portfolio of Dutch photographer Alexander van Berge.

Details

It was hard deciding what to follow up that last post with, so I settled on a few photos from the portfolio of photographer Lucy Schaeffer that gives you a glimpse into 3 spaces, each with intriguing details...

 

This photo is perfection. A glimpse is all you need. A bathroom with flat black doors, white subway tiles with dark grout, and gold hardware is IT.

Those high ceilings with such beautiful detail = *GASP*, and the copper pipe hardware is a cool touch. (I am pretending I don't see the ceiling fan...)

Can't decide on art to buy? Have some fun with a roll of tape in the meantime.

Down the long driveway, you'll see it ...

It seems the holidays are over and it's time to get back to work. Nose to the grindstone, bum up. Excuse me while I escape the drudgery of the workaday on day one of my return by slipping between the pages of latest fab book to land on my coffee table. Down the long driveway, you'll see it.

" ... a book of pictures of modernist, mid-century New Zealand homes. The houses aren't new, they’re old and lived in. They can be a little dusty, slightly worn around the edges and all have what antique dealers like to call “patina”. But they’re perfect in the minds of the people who live in them because of what they represent, which when designed, was a better way of living."

Photographer Mary Gaudin, along with writer Matthew Arnold, hasn't so much documented the architectural details of the homes but explored their being through her evocative images. It's about house and site and home and life and aging and fulfilling promise. My copy is dog-eared already. So if you still have some of the money Santa gave you or even as a belated present to yourself then Down the long driveway, you'll see it is a must.
