. . . . . . . . . . . . .

my friend ryan lives in portland, maine. his apartment gets the most incredible light year-round – such an inspiring place filled with good things. i couldn’t resist snapping some photos last week while i was there.  (if it looks familiar, i posted a few photos from his place back in september)

since it’s friday, here are a few flickr favorites that i’m inspired by this week:

…. and a little dance music for the weekend: moscow 1980. kick it.

happy weekend, have a good one folks.

    getting serious interiors envy from these! am very much enjoying your holiday photos – so nice to escape somewhere else, especially as london is so gloomy at the mo.

    This is my idea of the perfect apartment …. great windows, great floor and that couch is perfection !!!
    Great photos.

    These are stunning! I love that the cat is allowed on the bench so he/she can gaze out the window. The first photo is utter perfection with such beautiful tones.

    These are very inspiring! Light really is THE most important element in a space, it changes everything. I love the cat by the window!

    Love that first shot! Could not help but notice the Mrs. Meyers products – they are the best! Ah, sweet light!

    The couch, the espresso machine!
    I’ve been hanging images up with bullclips recently, but am a bit worried about humidity buckling them. Ryan’s look awesome though, gives me hope

    Brian, I’m going to let you moderate how I look at flickr
    it isn’t worth the time to troll around when I could just watch your favorites

    these also make it worth my time, every minute, to keep up with your blog

    How is it possible that we know the same people? I suppose Portland is a small town, but Ryan and I once lived on the same street, two houses from each other. I’ve been following you for some time, thinking your work had a distinctly MAV sensibility. My husband was just hanging with Ryan at the new District a few hours ago. Unbelievable.

    And, yes, we frequent the APT on the grand NBA game occasion.

    Happy saturday night,

    Brilliant images – I love the textures in the first and last but the third and fourtgh are my favoirutes for their composition.
