Delson or Sherman Architects

Posted on Thu, 13 Nov 2008 by midcenturyjo

Sometimes you just click with an architect or interior designer. You find their website and open each job in their portfolio with growing excitement. The loft is your favourite until you see the townhouse ….no the house, no …. You throw your hands in the air and realise you love them all. These homes speak to you and they are almost yelling at you “YES!” I am so inspired by the work of Brooklyn-based Delson or Sherman Architects. Wonderful modern spaces that are graceful and well thought through with clever design solutions and great livability. Love!

Keller + Keller

Posted on Wed, 12 Nov 2008 by KiM

Boston-based Joe and Amy Keller are brilliant photographers who specialize in food, interiors and lifestyle. I love that they take complete advantage of natural light in their photos which makes the spaces so lively. I adore the first photo….and it seems I am being haunted by photos with white floors. (Should I take this as a sign?)

Michael Richman

Posted on Wed, 12 Nov 2008 by midcenturyjo

Elegant and sophisticated, timeless and unique. Chicago designer Michael Richman creates rooms that reflect their owner’s style and then shifts it up a notch with impeccable craftsmanship and attention to detail. These are beautiful rooms with a modern take that references the best of the past.

Talk about strange coincidences. I had this post on Michael ready to publish this week when an email pops into my inbox introducing his latest venture R Studio, developed to fill the gap between exclusive high end residential interior design and retail store offerings. Great idea and cool site. Check it out while your lusting after Michael’s high end work.

Trine Thorsen

Posted on Wed, 12 Nov 2008 by midcenturyjo

Love it when you recheck a website that gave you such pleasure the first time round only to find even more fabulousness. Kim spotlighted the stunning portfolio of Trine Thorsen at the beginning of the year. Gorgeous work! But wait there’s more. Yes this über talented Norwegian photographer has updated her site and her shots take my breath away. You know the mantra – lighting, composition, crop – but it’s true these photos are beautiful. Go check the website again and reintroduce yourself to Trine’s work.

I remembered

It seems Jo and I have offended some readers by not posting something today about it being Remembrance Day. Frankly, I am offended that I would have to post something to remind people about the purpose of this day. I did not forget. This morning, I watched the proceedings at the war memorial and shed a few tears remembering my grandfather who was a war veteran, and who passed away several years ago. NO, I did not forget.
