{travel: contemporary lodge, scotland}

by

. . . quite taken with interior designer Suzy Hoodless‘ Contemporary Lodge in Scotland, a perfect combination of modern and rustic, and then there’s the view . . .

After last summer’s trip to Edinburgh and Glasgow, and a haunting {and terribly romantic} boat ride on the loch in Inverness, have been drawn to the compelling beauty of Scotland as if under a spell . . .




26 Notes
  • I love that first photo. I would like to go there right now. Beautiful.

  • so beautiful!

  • so gorgeous! will file this away under future fantasy destination. i’m obsessed with scotland and all things scottish after a friend got me hooked on diana gabaldon’s outlander novels. have you heard of them? they’re a little racy, but very well-written (think Gone With The Wind on crack) and oh, how gabaldon brings 17th century scotland and scotsmen to life!

  • wow! those mouse antlers are amazing! …and that view in the last image, it’s incredible! p.s. i gave you an award on my blog “)

  • absolutely gorgeous. i could stay in that last image, with those to-the-floor windows, all afternoon.

  • Very lovely…I love Suzy Hoodless!

  • Man! This would be the perfect place to live! Gorgeous!

  • Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous

  • I am taken with the enlarged photo of the group astride camels…. I do have a bit of a Lawrence of Arabia fascination.

  • Chris — love your eye {and perspective}! If anything were to tell a story, it would be that black and white enlarged photograph . . .

  • Hahaha… Oh, dear god, that is tooo funny. I have a tear! Sorry, I know we all do it, but… mouse antlers… hahahaaa. That was the best laugh I have had in a long time. I need to get out more! Oh my… thank you for that, I needed it.

    I meant to post on the stunning chairs. The black leather jobby and this one at the bottom, are truly stunning. All of these are just so haunting and wonderful. You DO have a knack for collecting moods in photos. Nicely done!

    Ha ha… hmphf… snarkle.
    ;)

  • I would love to spend my week end overthere !!!

  • I was under the spell of Scotland as well… I interviewed at length for a position at the Royal Museums in Edinburgh, but then they realized I was American, not Scottish, and I didn’t get it. (these were in-person interviews and they’d seen my all-american CV, too!)

  • this series is absolutely beautiful. I can understand your fascination! your trip sounds like it was lovely, especially the boat ride!

  • There is something so historic about all these photos. They feel so wonderfully timeless.

  • la la laa said...

    These look so gorgeous! They make me proud to be Scottish, but unfortunately there isn’t much of that around. People who are obsessed be warned- Scotland really isn’t actually that nice when you live there!

    I adore these (: this is my new favourite blog. <333
