Unknown Inspiration

If I forget credit a photo, someone will point it out to me right away.  But yet there are entire blogs and tumblr sites that post photos without any information let alone a credit.  It’s very frustrating when you want to know who designed a space or see the rest of the home.  I even tried to contact one blogger and received no response so now I’m asking for your help.  I’ve found all of these inspiring photos online and would love to know more about them.  If anyone has any information, please let me know.  I would also love to give credit where credit is due. 
UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who left comments and emailed me with credit details.  I’ve updated the post to label the images.  The top image is from Ralph Lauren.

    You’re so right. These are inspiring! The second photo is the Salon De Bois designed by Alex Papachristidis. He has more pictures of the space on his site.

    Number one is from the Ralph Lauren New Bohemian collection from several years ago. Loved that collection!

    Hi HC, I think 2decorfreak is right, the 2nd image is from Alex Papachristidis. I think the 5th image is from Elle Decor and might be Steven Gambrel..?
    Good luck!

    I appreciate that you always credit sources. Not only does this lend credibility to a blogger but it also opens up new avenues for the reader.

    I recently learned of Tin Eye, a reverse image search that sometimes (not always) can find the original source of an image. http://www.tineye.com/

    I so enjoy your blog!

    Agreed its always great to know when one can post sources….especially when you love something!! The only one I know for sure is the kitchen which is Kitchen Lab, nearly sure its on their own site and/or decorpad.
    Have a good evening!

    These are all truly inspiring spaces, but I just love that one that looks as though the shower doors are from salvage? So cool…

    I don’t know who any of the designers are however they are all beautiful spaces. And I think it is important to give credit for the photos on your blog, etc.

    Hi Heather, I love it that some can immediately identify where they have seen these images before–I’ve seen them and the only thing I can remember is that I love them all. Have a great trip. Mary

    Hi heather, the blue kitchen is from Plain English – a fabulous bespoke kitchen company based in Suffolk England. A colleague has just specified their designs for a Grade I listed building in London.

    It’s also my dream kitchen (need a bigger house first though) http://www.plainenglishdesign.co.uk

    Well done on wanting to track things down

    Thank you Meenal and Anna for sharing the tineye.com tool – so helpful! It does seem sometimes that just when we find the perfect image we can’t I.D. the source.

    No surprise that my man JB is responsible for some of the spectacular interiors you featured ; )

    #7 is an apartment in Paris that was featured in the New York Times a few months ago.

    Thanks everyone! I recently found out about TinEye but it only seems it work a small percentage of the time but I will keep trying it.

    To give a little more detail on #4, in addition to being in New York Magazine you can see the whole apartment here: http://www.luxist.com/2009/12/27/the-bookish-life-at-the-osborne-estate-of-the-day/ It’s an apartment at The Osborne in New York, which has got to be one of the most beautiful apartment buildings ever!
