It’s easy to see that New York interiors and architectural photographer Emily Gilbert started her career as an artist, even moving on to be a set dresser for TV and film. She loves a room. She loves the contents. She understands what makes a room tick. She composes, she almost caresses, she snaps. It’s gorgeous. You can follow how she approaches her commissions on her blog and drink in even more fab photos over there.
I wonder if photographers who shoot such absolutely amazing spaces (ie. yesterday’s post) go home to their less than stellar dwellings and think “why do I live in this dump?”. I think today’s featured photographer might have had that thought on occasion. Mauricio Fuertes of Barcelona claims he’s been working alot, in places that he dreams about. I’m fairly certain had I stepped into any of the spaces I’d be having dreams about them too, and wishing they were mine.
Ah bliss! Paris home of Australian fashion design Martin Grant. White. Tick. Aged timber. Tick. Midcentury and thrift finds. Tick. Licks of colour. Tick. Beauty but nothing too, too precious. Tick. Brilliant feature from new fav site Vårtnya Hem. Tick. Packing bags. Tick. Invading unknown Aussie expat’s home. Tick tick.
Swedish-born Katarina Malmström Brown is a phenomenal photographer who has worked for just about every decent European magazine out there – Allt i Hemmet, Bo Bedre, every Elle there is, Hus & Hem, Residence, Sköna Hem (she currently operates out of London, Stockholm and Los Angeles), and it’s clear why she’s so popular. Her photos are vibrant and eye-catching, and the spaces themselves are spectacular. I’m taking notes, on both the decor and the photography.
Holiday. Holiday. Holiday. Click my heels three times and I’m there. If only! Want to join me in Vietnam at Six Senses Con Dao? Vietnam is a country I have always wanted to visit. And after our whirlwind tour a peaceful break on the beach at this very stylish new resort and spa. Yes please!
