Love this photograph by Jeroen van der Spek. The soft light that washes in from the window. The wall of not so green greenery through the arch. The rustic table and the old mismatched chairs. The flicker of candle light. A story told through the lens of a camera.

WOW do I ever love this home! Rustic barn-look on the outside, soaring beamed ceilings on the inside in my favourite colour palette of black, white and browns, featuring a modern vibe mixed with global treasures. It's pretty much perfection. I'd even take the gorgeous dog. This is the home of cinematographer Darius Wolski photographed by Martin Löf.
