White on white

Clinton and Diana Grobler of Cape Town, South Africa architecture firm Grobler Architects did quite a number on the cottage. Unfortunately there are no before photos on their website but WOW after some renovating and additions this house is gorgeous! All of the white makes it so calm and fresh. And I really love the kitchen - very cool idea to make everything on the back wall black and the island all white.

But you know what? I'm not. I can never get enough. I'm always hunting, searching, devouring. Like today. Today it's the work of photographer David Ross. Beautiful, inspiring. Drink it in. I'm replete.
