Photographer Lust: Mark Roper

Roper18

As we edge closer and closer to the Winter Solstice here in North America, I thought I'd share some favourite images from the portfolio of photographer Mark Roper. His interior and still life shots are bathed in the most vivid light, a perfect anecdote to the short, dark days of November. I'm totally stealing this feather and catkin arrangement for my Thanksgiving table…and I love how the wicker nightstand below perfectly complements the smidge of rust on the bed below. Iron oxide as decorative element? Sure, why not!

Can't you just imagine waking up in this bed, the glow of the morning sun warming your skin as you lounge under the covers? I wonder what's outside that window. I'm picturing the bright green waters and smooth white sands of a Bahamian beach…

I love the monastic simplicity of this setting. It's all about those sky-high chapel ceilings and a few well placed pieces of furniture. And how ingenious is that little bookshelf tucked into the corner?

Same room, different angle. Those polished floors are just about killing me—the way they reflect the light from that window is magical! Plus the opulent gold chandelier contrasts beautifully with an otherwise otherwise spartan interior.

I don't usually take baths in the daytime; I much prefer the cover of darkness and a single lit candle to romanticize my pale, wobbly flesh. But I could be convinced to bare all if it meant a soak in this masterpiece of a tub. And hello marble tiles!

The pairing of rustic blond wood with industrial metals in this space really appeals to me. Plus I know a cat or two that would love to nap in that pool of sunshine on the floor!

Roper1423

Finally, one last shot to keep the dream alive. If that tropical bedroom looks onto a beach in the Bahamas, then this massive picture window boasts a priceless view from atop the cliffs of Malibu. The waves of the Pacific crash onto the rocks below, and if you look closely enough you can see Jen strolling with her dog Norman. Okay, now I'm getting delusional…but what a pretty delusion it is. Oh, and for dreaminess of a different kind, be sure to scroll down for today's scrumptious recipe!

    I just found my “happy place”; I want my apartment to look just like those photos….le sigh, so calm and peaceful

    I love your commentary on the various types of flooring. My favorite is the the opulent gold chandelier. Come to think of it, I think I need some gold lighting in my bedroom… What a wonderful idea.

    Fantastic.

    These are such soothingly calming images…love them all, but I especially adore the snapshot with the metal locker…the great floor lamp, vintage bocce balls, woven willow sculpture- fantastic contrasts and textures!

  11. kathryn Says:

    what gorgeous rooms! i was swooning over those chapel ceilings and purity of the white white white.
    and thank you for stopping by my blog as well! J.Crew is poison for my wallet, but alas, I’ll manage.
    And p.s. – anyone can pull off ribbons and bows if they want to! 🙂
