Last night I stumbled upon the portfolio of photographer Elizabeth Zeschin, and it's so scrumptious I had to share it immediately! The quality of the light in these shots is simply stunning: breezy and airy yet warm and inviting, just right for the early September summer-to-fall transition. And check out that yummy striped sofa in the foreground!
An all-time favourite image from Domino. The carefully edited elements--folding bistro chairs, pedestal table, futuristic pendant lamp--create a delicate balance of old and new. What I wouldn't do for a breakfast nook like this!
I've been waxing poetic about wallpaper lately, but when you live in a rental like I do, it's just not a practical option. However a big framed panel is an easy and budget-friendly way to incorporate a beloved pattern without the commitment of pasting it to the wall. (Visit The Designer's Attic for discounted odds-and-ends that would be ideal for a project like this!)
I love having fresh flowers in the house, but who has time to design an elaborate arrangement? A display like this is a no-brainer: gather plenty of blooms of a single color, combine with vases of the same hue, and POW! Instant floral paradise!
An stylish red leather chair looks surprisingly right against weathered wood and rustic casegoods. It's a strikingly sexy juxtaposition--like a farmgirl wearing crimson lipstick while she milks the cows!
We're having book issues in my house lately--as in, too many books and nowhere to store them. But there's a spare closet begging for a floor-to-ceiling shelving treatment like the one here. Too bad we don't have the bleached plank floors and streamlined mantelpiece to match!
Don't you love how this bathroom seems to glow? Recently I'm drawn to green in all its incarnations, and pistachio is especially appealing. The best part is that you don't need much--just a few well placed objets--to create a consistent color scheme.
I've saved my favourite image for last. This space is very reminiscent of the sensibility I'm trying to cultivate in my own living room. Clean, modern lines and muted tones meet with classical architectural elements. The result? Perfection!
