Photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes

I stumbled upon photographer Graham Atkins-Hughes’ portfolio recently and discovered some fantastic photos of interiors. The following is my favourite – I am sure the paint technique was done for the purposes of this photo but the more I look at this photo, the more I think this might actually work in the real world. You just better make sure you like the table and accessories!

Panton S Chair

Here it is, probably my favourite chair EVER. I was thinking of getting two to put at each end of my dining table (as in the first photo). If you own one, send me a photo. I would love to see how you used it in your space.

I love pink

Posted on Fri, 9 Feb 2007 by KiM

I adore the colour pink. I think it’s so pretty and fresh and fun. I was so happy when my sister gave birth to a girl in July so I could buy my niece all sorts of pink clothes. When I was trying to decide what accent colour to use in my bedroom, I kept going back to pink. I decided to go for it and I LOVE it! So here are some bedrooms that predominantly use pink to inspire you all to think about trying pink in your own spaces.

Jonathan Adler

Posted on Tue, 6 Feb 2007 by KiM

Jonathan Adler is a design god. I recently picked up his book “My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living” and I cannot believe I did not buy it sooner. His style is so whimsical and colourful and just plain fabulous – it is exactly the style I love. This book has become my new bible. He has brilliant tips throughout the book, for example:

“Lacquer your front door orange..”
“Lemon yellow is the essence of crispness and should not be overlooked.”
“Start a collection: ceramic animals, mannequin heads, other people’s high school yearbooks.”
“Buy rich ladies’ scarves and make them into pillows.”
“Put regal furniture in your bathroom. Stack your towels on a Louis chair upholstered in Pucci terrycloth, even if your bathroom is tiny.”

The man is a genius. If you don’t own that book, go out and buy it.

Ghislaine Viñas

Vane Becidyan just sent me a link to one of the most amazing designers I’ve ever seen. Ghislaine Viñas‘s work leaves me speechless – it’s so graphic and colourful! She’s been featured in many magazines, including O At Home. There were so many amazing photos on her website that I think I’ll need to do a second installment for this post (so stay tuned!). (Thanks Vane!)
