Inga Powilleit

Posted on Fri, 17 Aug 2012 by KiM

Happy Friday everyone! Isn’t the first week back from holidays the LONGEST EVER?! I need something to get me through the day, so I have a little treat to share in the form of gorgeous eye candy at the hands of Dutch photographer Inga Powilleit. Her photos are absolutely stunning, and I especially love her portraits in fabulous spaces. She brings a room to life, and I want to hang out with these folks and enjoy a coffee, some conversation and their decor. P.S. Inga has had the honour of photographing the home of super stylist Emily Chalmers (pics 4 & 5).

i LOOOOVE the floors in the pic above

It’s been forever since I blogged some eye candy provided by Australian photographer Jonny Valiant. What was I waiting for? Here’s another dose. So gorgeous. And still much more on his website.

Industrial goodness

My love of industrial/vintage items in a home drew me to this 18th century farm in Orgeval, France owned by a former journalist turned decorator and restorer. It’s flea market chich at it’s finest. Via Art & Décoration.

Dear Mr Miller,

This is a love note. I love your sense of colour. I have never felt green before. Perhaps I have but your greens, oh my, they thrill me. I love the light in your photos. Soft like a whisper, a promise, a dream. I love your composoition, your depth of field. No. No. Those are technical ideas. It’s more than that. I want to rip through my screen and just be in your shots. Somewhere an old clock is ticking, children are laughing outside and a dust mote hangs in the air. I just sit and breath in the beauty.

Attic apartment

Posted on Tue, 14 Aug 2012 by KiM

I adore this apartment. Designed by b-arch (Jo blogged this firm recently here and here), this was formerly the attic and kitchen spaces of an eighteenth-century building renovated to make an open-space loft. I love the stairs (although not to code by Canadian standards), the flat file cabinet, the globe collection, the huge sign in the kitchen, the LIGHT BLUE SMEG!!!, colourful tomato cans, Jielde light fixture (I have 2 of those!), huge vintage map as a headboard. And then there’s all the white…and those floors….
