Some eye candy from Gemma Comas...

This is the second American photographer that I posted about of late...I was just all ooohs and aaaahs when looking through Gemma Comas' portfolio. What beautiful work...

Some more cosiness coming your way...

Just to add to the cosy post yesterday, here are some lovely wintery photos from Toast's A/W 2010 catalogue. I love their styling and photography because they are rustic, inspirational and use lots of natural materials such as wool, linens and wood.  Don't you just love them too?

Baby it´s cold outside...♥

Well people this is the time to start cosying up your home ready for the cold season ahead.  I just love this weather as my favourite thing to do is to just be at home, drinking coffee, watching movies or eating something warming and yummy.  I am also starting to prepare for christmas - all the shops have their christmas departments open already..I just got a lovely white star with a light inside from Ikea that will look lovely in my window.  Here are some cosy pictures to get us in the mood :)

Corkellis House on Grand Designs last week....

I like to watch Grand Designs as it always inspires me to build my own house one day (My boyfriend and I  have a master-plan 'ideas board', full of these dreams!) Well this episode was more inspiring than ever as it featured a house build by interior designer Kathryn Tyler who has very similar vision and style as me  (although she throws more vintage into the mix than I do and a bit more colour).  She was inspired by Scandinavian design growing up and has had a very successful career, working on a vast range of projects from hotels and restaurant to her own house.  I suspect like me - the only place that she can truly put ALL of her ideas and preferences is her own space.  I LOVE the white painted bricks, cement floor, herringbone floor and log burner- that is like a little bit of heaven for me! Enjoy....

NH Lakefront Cottage Renovation

One of our recently completed projects is the renovation of a lakefront cottage on Pleasant Lake, New London, New Hampshire.

The property was subdivided and had originally had two cabins on it. A cabin on “The Point” was torn down to open up the lake view from the other cottage. Some of its materials were salvaged for use in the main cottage renovation.

The new cottage serves as a three-season entertainment area for family and friends with lakeside access and wonderful seasonal views.

Master Planning of the lot for a future primary residence was also completed, accounting for CSPA lot coverage, setbacks and storm water management.

Some colour for you today!

Although I'm not a fan of bright colours, but I felt like being colourful today. Where better to find an eclectic mix of colour? New York based photographer Annie Schlechter's very lovely portfolio of course!

Happy Weekend!

I just discovered Paula Leens webiste, Poetryworld, via Emmas design blog and thought that the work was so beautiful that I just had to post some pictures....
