Hundreds and thousands

Do they call the multi-coloured sprinkles on top of cakes "hundreds and thousands" in your part of the world? I never know anymore if a saying I have taken for granted all my life is common currency around the world. But it's hundreds and thousands that sprang to mind when I saw this cute as a button home shot by photographer Patric Johansson and styled by Myrica Bergqvist. A white, bright confection of a house with just the right sprinkle of colour.  A perfect way to rev up the energy to start the week. (Via Söderberg Agentur.)

Norwegian home

Summer school saw photographer Mary Beth Koeth spend time in a beautiful holiday home honing her already impressive skills. Robert, the owner of that lovely summer house has, surprise, surprise, an equally beautiful home. Everything you would expect a stylish Norwegian home to be. White, bright with views to die for. Imagine wasting time lying on the deck just watching the sail boats glide by. Well you can. Robert's home is for sale (here). Thankfully Mary Beth snapped these lovely shots for us before Robert leaves.

Summer school

Mary Beth Koeth is spending the quarter in Oslo assisting a photographer.  A talented, professional snapper herself she has gone to "summer school". With are four other students Mary Beth stayed in this adorable summer home in the forest at Nesodden. As she explains, "Robert Kristiansen who owns the home did such a lovely job decorating it. Before everyone unpacked, I went around to each room, styled it and then photographed it." Such a simply lovely way to spend the summer. Beautiful, evocative shots.

Waterfall factory

Breathtaking. Simply breathtaking. A lake, a waterfall, a 1950s factory refurbished into a minimalist space that reaches out to a wooded wonderland through walls of glass. References to its industrial past are complemented by the sparse interiors but what could be cold is brought to life by that view. Fitout and furnishings are simple. The art graphic and strong. Breathtaking. Simply breathtaking. (Thanks to Lisa for the link.)
