Promise me to click on every link in this post. You won’t be sorry because each will take you to some magical places. Words cannot express how badly I want to be seated at this table, at this moment… this looks so festive and exactly how I would sum up the perfect summer’s day. Have you heard of the Sunday Suppers blog?
It’s a beauty-filled burst of flavor and color with images that will make you want to run to Brooklyn and participate in their next class. Class, you say? Oh yes… You can dine at this table. Really. There next class is Sunday June 7 and the theme? Food & Wine Pairing — A French Dinner. All I can say is Sign. Me. Up.
These photos were taken by Karen Mordechai (a Brooklyn-based photographer with a beyond gorgeous blog) and I really can’t resist looking at them over and over again. The flowers are by Jessie at Rountree Flowers (be sure to visit Jessie’s portfolio – wow).
More about Sunday Suppers and further confirmation that I need to take a trip to Brooklyn this summer, “Sunday Suppers is a collaboration by Casey Solomon and Karen Mordechai. We share a class-cooking-dining experience, pairing friends and food. The food is market fresh, local and organic and the approach is to create seasonal and fresh meals together. The classes are held in Brooklyn, New York, taught by Casey Solomon and photographed by Karen Mordechai.” If you’re interested in taking a class email: karenandcasey [at]gmail.com
Inspiration overload, am I right? Oh what a yummy post this is…

Whether you are an aspiring photographer or an old pro you will no doubt find inspiration and ideas from the lovely Shana Rae. Her nature photos are my favorites, the incredible softness, color and light take the viewer into her dreamy, pastel world and so whenever she uploads a new photo to Flickr I’m always sitting in front of my computer drooling over her latest creation. Here’s but a few of my personal favorites…
In some of her photos she introduces textures, she uses Photoshop CS4, and I really like how soft and barely-there they are so as to remain as natural as possible. You can keep up with Shana Rae’s work on Flickr, at her gorgeous blog, or if you’d like to own some of it visit her shop at Red Bubble.

English artist Katey-Jean Harvey makes me happy today. That’s really all there is to it. Her work is beautiful, I’m smitten by her attention to detail and her color palette… simply put: Katey rocks. I just want you to know that so you’ll perhaps go check her out for yourself to form your own opinion. :) Here’s her portfolio, see what you think.
“My work is often narrative based, creating a world where my grumpy girls in cute dresses can sulk about boys and hang out with skeletons and sausage dogs. I am very fond of thin paint brushes, grey paper and sneaking cats into all of my pictures.”

Do you follow the work of Yael Frankel known to her fans as simply Yael Fran? I showed you her work nearly three years ago so for those new to decor8 you may have missed that post (ha ha) so here’s a reminder to visit Yael and see her current body of inspirational work all based on her unique characters.
