Seen and Liked On A Sunday

A welcoming, interesting kitchen; a delicious dark wall; a great picture gallery; a chair with lust-worthy curves; a view to laze in; and a cat siesta in the sun to show us how it's done.   Pics via Desire To Inspire.

Kitchen Fun

This kitchen makes me happy. Now all I need to find is a mini to hang on my wall and a kitchen with a big enough wall.

Photographer: Brigitte Marlot

Beautiful, fragile images by Brigitte Marlot, a French woman living in Sydney.  In her words: "The Urban Project came from a desire to record the mundane yet subtly beautiful details I noticed whilst walking around the streets of Sydney in the first years of my residence in Australia."

Fig Fabulous

I fell in love with the purples and blues on this delicious plate of figs on PurpleFoodie.  It probably helps that I have a weakness for figs and the idea of them stuffed with goats cheese is swoon-worthy!  These colors are so easily reinterpreted into lovely rich living spaces.

Sunshine in LA

We've had temperatures in the 100s this week in LA.   A tad warmer than usual this time of year even for LA.  But with it came stunning blue skies.   Took these pics the other day: palm trees and lights at LAX, a taco stand -- the quintessential perfect LA lunch spot, and leafy trees that draw me in and encourage me to daydream.  Wishing you a great weekend!

Venice Lovely

Fabulous rich colors in these photos by Kristina Klarin.   Shades of red, orange and gray with accents of yellow, blue, green, black, silver and white.  Yum!

Black Beauty

There is something about the density of the black in this painting by Claude Como that is simply beautiful. The style of the figure is feels like a nod to paintings of bygone years.

Alma Square

Tall ceilings, gorgeous floors, an old stone slab sink, a modern range, and tons of whimsy and contrast in the content and color.  I would love to do a Henry Road shoot in this house on ShootFactory.
