I know last time I was here I said that my posts moving forward would likely be simple 'currently' updates as I embrace my blogging break. Part of taking a break from blogging was to not be spending copious amounts of time looking for blogging material when I should be task-mastering at this busy time. But I also realized spending copious amounts of time looking for blogging material can sometimes serve as a break to all the other things I am, er, should be doing. The likes of which I discovered this week as my full plate was dripping with my to-do's and they quietly fell to the wayside as I found myself indulging in one of my favorite pastimes - looking at beautiful spaces. So this week I am forgoing updates to share this gem I found on the wonderful world wide web. (and in all honesty, although 7 days have gone by, unless you want to hear the minutia of child-rearing, order-filling, and homework-doing, i've got nothing for you).
When I came upon these images my jaw dropped. To me it is a perfect marriage of exquisite design and breathtaking photography. Some of these photos almost look like they could be realistic paintings. The Portrait of a House is a collaboration between two architects who came upon a derelict manor and restored it to its full potential.
True to the past they adapted the house to its specific needs re-interpreting the old rather than bringing in the new. And again the house has found a new coherency - as if nothing has changed. --www.frederikvercruysse.com
