If you’re in need of inspiration, you have to check out this mesmerizing photostream from New Zealand photography studio, Cuba Gallery. It is packed with images that are always evocative, sometimes moody, and occasionally even witty. There are lush forests draped with mist, soothing beaches, and thought-provoking urban compositions. All of them showcase Adobe Lightroom processing techniques. But it’s the retro still life images that I particularly love and, this being an interiors blog, I thought they were the most apt ones to post here.

Dip into the rest of the photostream for a visual treat!

The roses in our backyard are almost finished (although we sometimes get some as late as September when things warm up again in San Francisco). There’s one particular rose bush that was here when we moved in and has the most extraordinary coloring. The buds start out a deep coral color, then turn dark orange, fade to peach and eventually end up pale pink with a yellow center. It’s quite amazing. They’re at my favorite stage right now – they’ve just turned pink and are getting paler by the day.

There’s something so Victorian about an overblown rose. I like that these ones are a little weathered and battered too. So much nicer than the shop-perfect sort. Makes me think of teatime table settings like this…

Last two photos by Joanna Henderson.

It’s Sunday morning and that means endless cups of tea. So, to accompany that simple pleasure, here are some beautiful photos inspired by the great British cuppa… All photos are by Polly Wreford (represented by Sarah Kaye), whose work I absolutely adore.
