A big thanks to Nina for introducing us to the work of Finnish photographer Krista Keltanen. She is super talented, especially at post processing. Love the deep contrast and brightness of her photos. Gorgeous.
(thanks to the photo above I’m seriously about to go get a can of black paint from the basement and paint my backsplash)
So rich, so lush, so adult, so divine. Like a deliciously wicked dark chocolate cake only better. A stunning modern intrepetation of the old eat in kitchen. Seriously sexy! Seriously! The Bridge Street Project by interior designer Beatrix Rowe and short listed for the finals of the 2013 Australian Interior Design Awards.
Dark and moody. The room, not the teenage boy I can see dumping piles of clothes in the corner and stayying up late into the night by the glow of a computer screen. By Sydney based Designers In The City.
I think the idea of layered rugs is graphic and unique, but although I’m sure the space above was styled just for this shoot, wouldn’t that be beyond annoying? Your chair getting caught on one of 5 rugs while you try and get up from the table? And OMG how do you vaccuum all these??? (…that’s the 7-cat owner in me spazzing at the thought).

I love the New Zealand bach. The beach side cottage, the seaside shack, often painted black, pared back, perhaps even a little rough. Somewhere to escape, to interact with nature, to relax, to retreat. The Storm Cottage by architectural firm Fearon Hay with interiors by Penny Hay displays a robust exterior to the world but once inside it is warm, cocooning with a simple luxury. A stylish shelter in the wilds.
