Passion and a love. A belief in beauty and the dreams of a child. Cameras and travel and pictures and passion and a love. A love of photographs and images of other worlds, other people. Photographer Sarah Dorio’s work is all about a journey from her first camera at age eight to these gorgeous images of stunning homes. You see it’s Sarah’s passion that makes these rooms “pop”. (Oooh am I actually going to say passion pop? Ooooh yes I did!) The heart and soul of photographers are often seen in the images they capture. Do these rooms speak to you? Maybe because Sarah Dorio caught their essence through her lens.
P.S Don’t miss her other portfolios. Stunning!
The other day a reader named Bo sent us this link to a black and white home on a Swedish real estate site. I thought it was a cool pad, but then while perusing the site I came across this home that really got me going. I LOVE the location, the open layout, the fresh colour scheme, the whitewashed wide plank hardwood, the grey trim, the black Smeg, the viewwwwww…….(thx Bo!)
A limited palette but maximum appeal. Stark modern interiors by Paris architectural firm Joseph Dirand. Oh the luxury of pure minimalism. Imagine having a sleek and often hidden home for the “things” of everyday life. Clean lines may be cold to some but heaven to others. And just a hint of aged timber to warm the heart!
So as promised, here is more of Harts Lane. This is the 2 story studio behind the main cottage. Where the cottage was bathed in white and mostly pale colours (the black wall in the kitchen being the exception), this is dark, moody and very funky. I don’t know which I adore more.
I’m also including some photos of Simon’s other interior design works below because they were too fabulous not to feature. I mean, why stop now?
Ashley of the blog Free Form emailed with a bedroom decor problem: “I am moving to a new apartment and thought I should really concentrate on decorating my bedroom. I kind of have my room in black and white right now but I didn’t do a great job if it. So I am wondering, do you think I should try and revamp the Black and White theme or scratch it for colours?” She posted on her blog some inspiration she found for black and white and also did one with colour. I say if you’ve got black and white going on and you like it (except the execution of it) then work with what you have. Since I don’t know what Ashley’s working with, I went through my photo stash and found photos of predominantly black and white bedrooms. I do like the idea of introducing a colour (pale pink, pale blue, acid yellow…), or even just some timber pieces added in to soften the look.
