Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Photographer Nicolas Mathéus

French photographer Nicolas Mathéus work a lot for Marie Claire Maison, so perhaps some of you have seen his photos before. I picked my favorites from his portfolio, the ones I think are worth a second watch. I hope you like them!

And I'm sad to say this, but I simply do not have time to answer all your emails. I try, but you are so many, and I am only one person... Sometimes I wish I could clone myself, but until that is possible, please understand that I try my best, and I read all of your emails, but all of you might not get a reply.

To make things easier for all of us, here are some answers to the most frequently asked questions:
* For all of you requesting info on Stockholm I can gladden you with the fact that I'm working on a new, updated Stockholm Guide with my favorite places in time for the tourist season, but outside of that I'm not giving any tips on the city.
* For those of you asking for info on a piece of furniture or art in a picture I posted, I'm sorry, but I have no clue.
* And for those who are asking for link exchanges, I just don't do that. The blogs in my blogroll are the ones I love and don't want to live without, and asking isn't going to include your blog on that list.

That was about it, let's watch some nice photos instead!

    i LOVE the simple table and the crane through the window. So many photographers would have tried to pretend the crane wasn't there, right? But its what makes this shot so special. Hope you had a good weekend. We're just back from Marrakech so I've got a lot of photo editing to do!

    I love that 4th picture -- the window frames a view as if it were a painting, even an industrial looking one!
