More Emily Gilbert

Posted on Wed, 31 Aug 2011 by KiM

Emily Gilbert’s photography talent was featured here in February, but when I happened upon her portfolio recently I discovered many more spaces yet to be showcased. You know you want more. And this time there are quite a few perfectly captured kitchens, among other rooms.


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.

…I would make out with this one. With lots of tongue.

Zuster, Dutch for sister, is the perfect name for a Melbourne-based furniture and interior design company run by 4 sisters (Wilhelmina McCarroll, Fleur Bouw, Katrina Myers and Meika Behrendorff). The Zuster philosophy embraces simple lines and unadorned forms, providing the perfect foundation for beautiful timber grains and meticulous craftsmanship. With strong attention to finer details, pieces are characterised by subtle shadow lines, seamless timber butterfly handles and the careful selection of matching grains to work with the proportions of the piece. Their bespoke contemporary furniture is gorgeous, and you can check it out on their website, but as you know Jo and I prefer to focus on interiors. This company is very talented in that department as well, and the spaces they have designed feature many of their furnishings. The first few photos below are of Willy’s home, on 40 acres in Yarra Valley, complete with picturesque view and horses!

Such a sweet little nook using an often overlooked space. Found while real estate stalking.
