Hello, here's the final blog for November, it's hard to believe really that we are almost into December. I must admit that it does get hard sometimes to select the right images to put up for you all to see as there are so many. But I will persist, as it still blows me away, the work, the design, the art and dear old mother nature they all still have that ability to stun and amaze. Enjoy



Hotels ( this is a particularly beautiful shot)

I loved the plug, it's called 'help'

Italy, where else....

A great mix of old and new here, it's great that they still both suit the environment and strangely each other.

A homage to the Hobbits? But a beautiful house

More Hobbition?

Now I know I go one about colour and how I like the lack of it, but every so often I think,,,"ok I don't mind that".

Great Shot, good timing

More of that house from above

I would like to visit this house

It's almost futuristic

Now I thought that this was a very cool idea, I like things that work for you, and normally a stair is, well just a stair, but this one works as storage as well. What do you think?

Chinese Stadium in scale......

Beautiful lighting

The lighting really adds to the feel of a place

Great evening shot

Tiles to the side of a building, I have other images of this building, which will appear later. I just liked the image for now.

Wasn't too sure about this, but strangely enough it seems to work

This place does work for me what a view


This is a modern swimming pool made to look like you were swimming in a river pool, I think that this is beautiful

A moment in time caught beautifully

This shot is so dramatic I made it my wallpaper, it looks amazing in larger scale

A great Hotel room.

Lovely warm space by the looks of it.

Ice hotel in Norway, the work to the ceilings must have taken ages to achieve


This house was done for a compitition called 'Hovering' great design

Timber, watch out because it's coming...

I have no idea where this building is, but it's worthy, take some time to have a close look at it and when you get to the back of the image you see right through the building, this place is on a truely massive scale.

I only included this because it's a great image, the colour, the saturation, this is all about the photo not the house

Great front entrance

WOW, I've never been on a roller coaster, what do you think about this one?

A truely beautiful space, just imagine walking into this hotel and looking up...

Well that's all for now, I wish I had the time to show you the rest, perhaps next week :-)

Welcome to this weeks blog, and to all the new followers as well. This will be the first week for a few of you, so here is my blog full of images showing some great architecture and interior design as well as images that are ( in my opinion anyway), just beautifully taken showing some amazing scenes from around the world. So enjoy

I wonder how long it took to carve this

This looks like stained glass gone wrong but when you look at the next image you begin to understand what it is of.

Terraced rice feilds at sunset, just a different angle and a change of light can transform the ordinary into somehting quite spectacular

I liked this image for one thing......the rope art work on the front wall, so simple and easy to do and yet so effective. You could spend a couple of hours in your workshop and do this so easily, all it needs is the inspiration and the thought "I can do that".

You all know how I feel about art, and scale a perfect example here

Timber is coming back, you read it here

Beautiful house, beautiful light

just love this space

What a great bathroom

Again great light

Quite stunning don't you think

The central atrium of the house creates a great feeling

Now that is a view......

Loved the lighting in this room, it certainly creates a mood tha just makes me want to shake up a cocktail for sure

Didn't like the space that much but loved the art installation on the rear wall

This is me..................

And this........this is the type of space that I really like, hard, bright, and plenty of height

Very cool back yard. I've featured a few on the site, but every now and then a great one comes along, this one and the one i showed built in layered circles are my two favourite ones

Great set of stairs

Again space that I like, that wharehouse feel, simple and yet very cool

Great photo

Awe, this cracked me up......a pack of wild dogs attacking a baby

Some designerson TV love to talk about indoor outdoor flow( and I roll my eyes yeah yeah fluff another cushion), but this is a perfect example of it........I might start listening a bit closer now

Cool space again, I keep using that word but it just is!!!!!

Remeber last week in order to create stunning design take something out, there's only 3 things in this image and yet it looks so complete 

Again so simple, check your own space and see if there is somehting that does not belong there, less clutter is the call of the day

I also like white spaces, but the little artwork sitting on the table is just great!!!!

And then you have interiors like this........

And this. BTW the scale of the art, did you notice it

Something must have got caught in the photocopier, just amazing, can you imagine the contractors meetings over this.

I liked this room

And I love this, I want to be there now......

simple and elegant

This is a bar in Boston, a friend of mine has just been there and said " you have to see this place', and funnily enough up pops an image of it. Loved the photo just for the photos sake, but the content is pretty great too

I actually removed this image when I loaded up for the weeks blog, but I kept coming back to it, what do you think

Now this is an interesting set of images, the designer did not want a lot of colour so decided just to introduce 1  ( mustard) right throughout the house in all the rooms and I think it's pretty clever actually

So so simple

Notice all the spaces are black and white just the single element

very good idea

And then we have balance throughout

Just to finish off this week, i do favour Black and White images sometimes they jsut add a mood to an image.

Well thats all for the week, as I said to the new visitors I hope you enjoy the blog, please go back through the blog there are some amazing things to see. And remember if you want to see larger images just click on them, they will open on a new page, so all you see is the picture and not my ramblings.......
