Photographer Pia Ulin

Loving the work of Swedish photographer Pia Ulin and the wonderful interiors she captures, particularly this flat above!

The siding on that island… woof. Is it antiqued mirror? I think so. It catches the light in such a beautiful way. What a clever way to add some jewelry to an otherwise very simple white, wood, and black scheme (which I of course love).

Check out the gallery for much more…

Jerome Galland

A few beautiful home shots for you from French photographer Jerome Galland. Above left, a home in St. Syr sur Mer, and above right, the Italian vacation home of Giorgio Armani, both from Marie Claire Maison (why aren’t American decor magazines this good?).

How cool are those two dining spaces? The giant open wall with big drapes flanking and the pergola of palm branches are both ideas I’m making mental notes of for later…

Below, a home in Mykonos. As my sister just said, “Who knew white could say so much?” Whether Greek or Scandinavian, I’m not getting sick of the mostly white look (and I’m still pretty hooked on white+wood, leather, and black for a city house), it just looks so visually refreshing.

Loving the use of space, colors, and materials in this Marseilles home designed by Maurice Padovani.  The kitchen, dining room, and living room are condensed into to a fairly small area, but it feels airy and light due to the open floor plan, restricted palette, and lack of clutter.



Keri Russell’s Brooklyn Brownstone

Loved these shots from this month’s Elle Decor feature on Keri Russell and her husband Shane Deary’s home in Brooklyn. Deary is a contractor and craftsman, and the two renovated the 1860′s building themselves, including restoring the floors, which Deary pulled up plank-by-plank, numbered, refinished, and replaced in their original location. Um, wow.

I was obsessed with Felicity (I think it’s one reason I transferred from UNC to NYU– I re-watched the entire series during my first semester at UNC, and in the show, Felicity attends the fictional “UNY”…), and now, I’m obsessed with Keri Russell’s actual life.

Mechiche in Paris

Loving the art- and book-filled Paris apartment of interior designer Frederic Mechiche. The mix of 18th century antiques and paneling with mid-century classics is unified by the simplistic color palette and set off by art ranging from African masks to pieces by Dubuffet, Sol Lewitt, and Joseph Beuys.

Add in the furniture– Bertoia, Mies van der Rohe– and the place practically reads like a 20th century name game. But despite all the heavy-hitters, the space doesn’t feel cliche (which could’ve happened so easily) and instead has an eclectic, collected, personal vibe.
