Photographer Melanie Acevedo

As I was writing 8 Interiors Books On My Wish List For 2011 on Real Simple earlier today, I bumped into the online photography portfolio of Melanie Acevedo and had my own little swoon party at my desk. Ah, yes -- Melanie Acevedo, that Melanie... the one who shot tons of interiors for Domino magazine. Here are a few favorites of mine, though you simply must see her site for many more inspirational images that you're sure to love.

Her website is this gorgeous space where you can spend lots of time being dazzled and ooo-ahhhed. You can also walk away feeling a little bit uncool because it seems her clients are either famous, rich, gorgeous or all of the above but that is the magic of a great photographer so perhaps if Melanie shot an image of you at home it would be equally stunning.

What a great way to kick off 2011 -- with gorgeous rooms and inspiring homes by the oh-so-talented Ms. Acevedo.
