  • Loving these pendant lights in iridescent blown glass (white or clear), each with a blue feeder cord. Actually loving more than just one. I’ll take that room too! The at .

  • Modern eco-friendly furniture designed and made in Atlanta Georgia. Lisae Manus calls it dirty, sexy, clever and dark. He named it (as in black eye). I call it stylish.

On Saturday Lisa WINKed photographer Ty Cole’s and today I’d like to showcase some of his architectural and interior photography. His photos are sharp and bright and he frames interesting elements so perfectly. (And I had to include that last photo – I am going to dream about those rough timber floors tonight…)

Can I describe photographs as clean and minimal? Refreshingly simple but cleverly composed. Spare elegant spaces captured in an instant. Messages cleverly conveyed through a lens. This room is graceful, that design is effortless, unforced and natural. All these thoughts tumble through my mind as I view photographer work. Honest and beautiful. Real and remarkable. P.S. Has green ever been so beautiful?









Galley kitchens

Posted on Thu, 18 Feb 2010 by KiM

I figured it was about time for another reader request. This one comes from Marisa: “We bought a 1950’s house a few years ago and are (finally) ready to start planning our kitchen renovation. It’s terrible! Three layers of stick-on tiles, fake wood countertops, “custom” lighting. However, most inspiration kitchens are open plan, while ours is galley – and no potential to be otherwise because every wall in this house is cement block. Weird! Would you be willing to find some galley kitchen inspiration photos?” Simple enough request. Here ya go Marisa! (OMG aren’t cement walls a b*tch?!)
