London and New York would be nice to visit again, so here I am dreaming about my holiday escape anywhere. . . London and New York City; two cities so fundamentally different and yet so amazingly similar. So what happens when two of the most photographed cities in the world come together as one? I am loving this new photographic project by Daniella Zalcman’s. Pretty cool, right? I think for now I will just enjoy these beautiful double exposure photos as my dream London or New York escape is off the cards for now.
Megan Hass Melbourne’s fashion illustrator shares her home with her husband, architect Craig Yelland and their two children. Their penthouse is located on the roof of an 18th century church. The renovation saw the exterior preserved with the interior gutted, allowing Megan and Craig to start from skratch. I love how she kept the base neutral which means you can completly change the mood with art and furnishings. Stay tuned as we peek inside her wardrobe, which she says is her favorite room in the house ‘It’s my happy place’. Check out her illustrations we blogged about in our yesterday’s post here.
