Glam bam thank you Ma’am!

Posted on Mon, 27 Aug 2007 by midcenturyjo

Couldn’t stop at one post about Beale Lana (see post below). I almost titled this one “If I was another room”. This amazing foyer was their contribution to this year’s Kips Bay Show House. Stunning! And yes those are silver egg chairs!! Glam punk and a dash of high style goth meets classic antiques and surfer chic. What a sense of fun!

A little while ago I featured a photographer, Prue Ruscoe whose work I adore. My favourite pictures of Prue’s appear in one of my favourite books, A Sense of Style. Colour, by Shannon Fricke, interior stylist, TV presenter and now regular contributor to Inside Out. My copy is well worn and well used. Shannon was kind enough to email thanking me for mentioning her book and with the news that she has a new book, Sense of Style. Space. These are the images she sent to share. In her first book she explores the world of colour, revelling in its cheekiness and life enriching beauty. Her books, while informative, are joyous celebrations of life, style and lifestyle. Each is a feast for the eyes with glorious photos of homes, mood boards and vignettes styled by Shannon. Her new book takes us on a journey through space, sacred, personal, transitional and functional spaces. Once again her insightful holistic approach is matched by Prue’s stunning photographs. If you find her books I know they will become well used sources of inspiration. Both books can be found readily in Australian bookstores and here. Unfortunately both are not yet available in America but that’s what online ordering is for!

P.S. Thank you so much for the copy of the new book Shannon. It’s gorgeous from cover to cover!

I haven’t done a post of black and white interiors in a while, and as a result I needed a fix of my two favourite colours (ok, pink is up there too).

I have the utmost respect for photographers. These artists can capture the essence of a room and bring it alive for us on the pages of magazines and catalogues. Gemma Comas is responsible for one of my favourite Domino photos. So I followed the trail and found Gemma’s website. Beautiful. This talented photographer stops time and makes you gasp at the beauty of the simple and the serene. These are just a few photos from her interior portfolio. Don’t miss her website for more stunning images from her portfolio.

Jennifer Post‘s style of modern simplicity/classical minimalism has won her a spot in Architectural Digest world’s top 100 designers and architects list. She has quite a list of clients to her name, such as Jennifer Lopez, Simon Cowell, and Matt Lauer. Her timeless designs are stunning in photographs.
