Scott Waterman

Scott Waterman is an artist, a talented decorative painter and I’d like to add an incredible interior designer once I saw photos of his home. His decorative painting began with trompe l’oeil murals and the restoration of historic buildings. Amazing talent (click for larger images)…

His former home in San Francisco was featured in several shelter magazines and was absolutely breathtaking – so serene, romantic, captivating and filled with natural beauty. The creativity in these spaces is fascinating.

Scott has alot of ideas for his house and someday hopes to move his studio out of it, but in the meantime it is fantastic – the white makes his stunning and colourful artwork just come to life. Talk about multi-talented!! Thank you Scott for introducing us to your creative world.

The Modern House

A reader named Finn emailed the other day to tell us about a website she and her friends love to check out – The Modern House. It’s an estate agency specializing in the sale of 20th and 21st century homes of architectural distinction across the UK. I went through several listings and picked out some of my favourite photographs. (Thanks Finn!)

Etsy shops

I am home sick today (and yesterday) and while I should be sleeping the day away, we’ve received some emails from fellow bloggers and friends who’ve got some great new products that I wanted to share instead, because sleeping is boring.

Jane and Hollie of White Elephant Vintage are launching “A Sports & Games Affair” tonight at their Etsy shop so go check it out. Here’s a sneak peak:

Emily of Orange Beautiful wrote about her new line of 4-color, hand screen-printed MOTIVATE designs available in her Etsy shop that I absolutely love, and I think I might have to pick up “Get Your Sh*t Together”.

Gosia has some great new finds in her Etsy shop blue bell bazaar. Here’s one of my favourite collections:

Gorgeous photographs from the portfolio of New York City-based Peter Margonelli. I adore the miss-matched shutters in the second last photo.

I am a huge fan of colour, but the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles 2008 Designer Showhouse could not be any more neutral, and surprisingly, I love it. (The home combines the efforts of Keith Summerour of Summerour Architects and Nancy Pendergrast of Summerour Interiors in partnership with Beth Webb of Beth Webb Interiors). It’s so serene, easy on the eye and comfortable.
