Inspired By Photographer Polly Wreford

Last Friday I shared with you the cover of an upcoming book from Atlanta Bartlett called Easy Elegance. Did you notice that? Anyway, the book I'm eagerly awaiting will release in April 2009, you can pre-order it on Amazon (US) like I did for only $19! (the ISBN is: 978-1845978501 in case you want to hang onto that for future reference.) Okay anyway, I noticed today on the book cover that the photographer is Polly Wreford who I'd not heard of before so I googled her to learn more. And learn I did!

Polly is a lifestyle, still life, and interiors photographer and nothing short of excellent. I also found out when I googled her that Ez showed her work right here on decor8 a few months ago pointing to Polly as an inspiration in an interview I had with her. Funny how Polly's name was mentioned on this very blog and I did not even recall it. Shame on me. But it was when I was when I was on vacation so I think that is how I missed it. Polly's complete portfolio is online where she is represented by Sarah Kaye in London. I think it's really important to look at the photographer's name in your favorite interior books, google them, and learn more about their work and what other projects they have or are currently working on. I started doing this and have discovered so many talented people online this way, and in return have so much beauty to refer to for inspiration - as these portfolios are only a bookmark away!

How's that for gorgeousness, am I right? I can't take myself away from this dreamy palette of pale gray, lilac and blue lately... I wonder if this will change once I'm back in America next week? I leave on the 18th for the states and won't return to Germany again until May so I'm looking forward to seeing how my inspirations change (or not) once I'm in a different country around new things. I can't wait to pick up my mail, although 5 months of mail will be a bit overwhelming, the Domino book and the past 5 issues, including the one I was mentioned in, will be there waiting for me and I cannot wait to see them!

What color palette has you swept away these days? I have a small inspiration board that I pulled together recently showing my current color inspirations and images and objects that I'm into lately. I will photograph it and show you tomorrow morning. :)
