Houses And Villas With Pools

If I ever win big on the lottery I’d like to have a house designed by an architect (well, designed by me and then adjusted by an architect to make sure it won’t all fall down because there’s no such thing as a load-bearing pit) and one of the features I’d really like is a swimming pool. The following pictures are the sorts of homes and villas that appeal to me, all coming from the HomeDSGN website (pronounced...

Fashion Faves – Rosie Tupper

I’m not sure whether there’s a feud going on between the style magazines and the fashion photographers but the two need to get together and up their combined game if they want to impress me.

Fashion Faves – Fortune Cookie

Photographed by Martin Tremblay (and via ru_glamour initially (to me, anyway)) comes this bizarre photoshoot entitled Fortune Cookie. The original set can be found in issue 23 of Schön! Magazine.
