Photographer Crush: Ditte Isager

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

My friend Ali introduced me to photographer Ditte Isager recently and to my surprise I recognized a lot of her work from my countless Martha Stewart magazines. Some of her most recent work can be seen in the Poppy Love article in the May Issue of Living.

The saturated tones and playful sense of scale is stunning and so ethereal. I adore Ditte’s work and you should definitely check out her extensive portfolio if you get a chance. Inspiration galore!



Well Branded: Cavalier Essentials

I have an affinity to men’s accessories. I think it’s the classic materials of leather, metal and glass that create such a glamorous scene. Designer Taylor Pemberton created this line of gentlemen’s accessories and fine goods for a school project.

Naturally, Cavalier Essentials has received quite a bit of attention; just look at those details! The subtle black-on-black notebook and the etched metal scream rustic sophistication. Unfortunately these products aren’t available for purchase just yet but Taylor says if the demand is big enough he’d consider launching his manly kits. Check out this interview with Taylor on The Madbury Club about the project.

Hands down one of the best students projects I’ve ever seen. I’ll be the first in line to purchase some of these beauties for my husband when they do become available but until then, we can admire the beautiful styling and impeccable pieces from his Cavalier brand!



An Inspired Tablescape

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Somehow I missed this Easter Tablescape by Remodelista with Gwyneth Paltrow but came across it thanks to the Meriment Blog. I’ve always been a big fan of Gwyneth’s sophisticated but laid-back style and this tablescape seems to fit her personality to a T! I just love the combination of pale pinks and blues with white, tan, and black. Photographer Simon Bevan did an outstanding job of capturing this beautiful table top! I wish I could join in the feast!

And P.S. how amazing does Gwyneth look in these photos?! My goodness, so SO pretty!



Serene Green

Monday, April 4th, 2011

With Spring around the corner, I have dreams about redecorating my entire house. Maybe a serene space with hues of  green throughout like these images from photographer Polly Wreford. There is such a sense of vibrancy and cleanliness all while being relaxed and calming.

How about you, any plans to update or renovate for spring? We’re saving up for a new kitchen so no big plans to remodel soon, but some day…
