When I grow up I want to be an interior stylist like Emily Henson. In the meantime while I continue to dream of a life of props and rearranging other people's homes, I'll peruse her portfolio then dog-ear my copy of her book Modern Rustic, my all-time favourite that I could flip through every night before bed to evoke dreams about reclaimed wood, faux sheepskins and vintage finds.
Like a series of stage sets or a a ramble of rooms filled with one man's dreams and treasure Rooigem House in Sint-Kruis, Belgium is the creation of antiques dealer and designer Jean-Phillipe Demeyer. The medieval manor with moat has been lovingly restored and now is home and business. The riot of colour and pattern and OTT pieces make it a sensory delight. Imagine visiting in real life. Where to look. What to touch.
We have all seen (and fallen in love with) shots of photographer Paul Massey's Mousehole, Cornwall home but did you know you can rent it for a holiday stay? And look at the view! Oh my! My trouble would be that I wouldn't want to give the keys back. The Oyster Catcher via Unique Home Stays.
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.
