Martin Dyrløv

Hello! Oh my! Fanning myself because I'm feeling weak. I have a new photographer crush. So what's new?!! Kim has featured the work of Danish photographer Martin Dyrløv before but there is so much more to see these days on his website and, well, I'm smitten. Wonderful work. Beautiful photos.

House in the dunes

After the beach-side house just beyond the dunes from earlier this week I though I'd share another. Just a little different. Or is it? What do you think? (And yes there are 4 bedrooms with bath in room and ensuite!) The Dune House by Norwegian architects JVA (Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL) and built on the shore in Thorpness, England is available for holiday rental.

Architecture needs relationship ... Architecture ought to be interesting rather than pretty ... Architecture should be exiting, not just satisfying ... Architecture is not just about the money.

Seedling

A  farm house nestled in the shadow of the old barn. Self contained and small. Bijou and beautiful. An apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Is this wee wonder going to grow up to be a big bold barn over the centuries? Perhaps not. Perhaps that is better. By Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Arkitekter MNAL.

Magnus Anesund part one

Two homes today from the portfolio of Swedish photographer Magnus Anesund. What I love most about Magnus' work is the attention to the personal detail. The photos are like looking into the heart of the family that lives in each home. The first one an urban hangout for a creative family. It is almost like we are nosing around this home while the owner is making tea in another room. We're carrying on a conversation but our eyes are darting everywhere drinking it all in. Great photos.

Sometimes Scandi isn't just white

Sometimes Scandi style is anything but white. Most times it's a lot more. Swedish photographer Anna Danielsson takes us into homes that break those clichés about white and bright must be Scandi. There's brooding and muted, pop art colour pops and warm woods ... and yes there is still white but not the antiseptic, scrubbed within an inch of its life Swedish real estate photograph white. Lived in white. Such rich, detailed shots. So much personality. Those Swedes are still styling whatever colour the room.
