I love what she seems to effortlessly churn out and her interiors blog is divine as well as her food blog. Such an inspiration!

And oh yes, more tufted sofas with buttons popping up huh? I told you, I’m addicted and want one soooo bad!

Juell Photography

I recently stumbled upon the commercial and interiors photography of Juell Photography and wanted to share a quick glimpse of her portfolio with you. I’ll show you in a moment, in my next post, where I originally spotted her work while I was researching for a write-up I did on wallpaper for an Oprah newsletter. Back soon with that…

For now, enjoy. And by the way, I’m still dreaming of owning a tufted sofa with buttons… Can’t you tell? Sigh….

Gorgeous Rotterdam Home

Do you love open plan living? Then you’ll enjoy this home. It was such a treat to see this space in Rotterdam photographed for Houzz by the lovely Holly Marder, an American living in the Netherlands who writes a blog called Avenue. I don’t read Houzz regularly but I do read Holly’s blog, so I was so excited to see this home pop up today on her site. She is also such a doll, she visited me in Hannover last year and will come again in the Fall, she is my newest blogger pal. I love the dining room that opens into the kitchen, such a light and bright space. I think what really wows me is the overall architecture, I mean look at those windows! To die for!

Avenue

This three-story, 2,368 square feet, 19th-century home is located in Rotterdam and along with the neighboring row of houses, was awarded the 2012 Rotterdam Architecture Prize for modern urban renewal. Wouldn’t you LOVE to take an old building and gut renovate it? MY DREAM is to do this.

In fact, I am currently on the look out for something in Hannover so we’ll see, perhaps in a year or two decor8 will turn into Holly Becker’s Home Renovation blog. :) Oh boy! I wonder what you guys would think of THAT?

See more on Houzz and on Avenue. Enjoy!

Stylist Kim Timmerman

Have you ever been on Pinterest (follow me here!) when, almost suddenly, a bunch of your contacts start pinning the same image, but they aren’t even following each other?!? What??!  You click and click and cannot figure out how or what inspired the massive click-a-thon because it couldn’t possibly be chance… Well, whatever the cause, this happened to me today and though I have no clue what inspired the sudden click fest, I decided to write about the person behind the photo on my blog to shout out their work so they don’t get lost on Pinterest. Today, I’m highlighting Dutch freelance stylist, Kim Timmerman. See what inspires you about her work below – anything stand out?

If you missed it, scroll back up and pay particular attention to how she uses plates in her work – on walls, tables, as almost a sort of mood board — really nice! I also like the stitched paper plates in the heart motif (too cute – you could hang a bunch of these on the wall for your next anniversary party!). The white desk (I have the exact same desk) on the concrete floor with the plant chart above it and the wooden industrial stool caught my eye too.

Kim is available for hire – from concept to production and styling, she’s got your covered. You can contact here via her website here: Contact.

Lovely, inspiring work, Kim!
