For Dwell's annual issue dedicated to interiors , we visited colorful and vibrant homes from Antwerp to Portland, Oregon. Here, we introduce you to the photographers and writers who made it happen.
Amara Holstein portrait

A former editor at Dwell, Amara Holstein is a writer living in Portland, Oregon. Her work has also appeared in The New York Times, Wallpaper*, and Frame. She visited a brightly updated 1959 home in the city for this issue. “I was struck by the way art and color are seamlessly integrated within every aspect of the house, from the sculptures outside to the pops of orange in the kitchen,” she says.

What does your dream interior look like?

“Big windows, high ceilings, and no clutter.”

Ye Rin Mok portrait

Los Angeles–based photographer Ye Rin Mok captured a sleek, renovated kitchen in the city’s Toy Factory Lofts building, where she fell in love with the “delicate brass trim and shelving.” Her portraits and interiors have appeared in Apartamento, The Telegraph, and WSJ, among others. Aside from photography, she enjoys hiking, pottery making, and taking ballet classes. 

What is your favorite interior?

“Philip Johnson’s Glass House.”

Cristobal Palma portrait

Born in the United Kingdom, photographer Cristobal Palma relocated to Santiago, Chile, to start his own studio in 2008. One of his photographs was acquired by the Museum of Modern Art in 2013. He traveled to Buenos Aires to visit the Casa Clara house. Of the house, he says, “I love those places that are perfect as you find them and there is no need to change a thing.”

What is your favorite interior?

“The Temppeliaukio Church (Rock Church) in Helsinki by Timo and Tuomo Suomalainen is amazing.”

Jane Szita portrait

Longtime Dwell contributor Jane Szita reported on the colorful house of an artist and an architect in Antwerp for this issue. “It was inspiring to see how two people with completely different attitudes to design and interiors can live in harmony together and create a really special place,” she says. Szita’s past assignments have taken her on safari with Masai warriors in Kenya and to Tokyo to interview Takashi Murakami.

What does your dream interior look like?

“It would probably be a cross between a luscious Lautner pad and the luminous spaces in the paintings of Vermeer.”

Tim Van de Velde portrait

After pursuing a career in photojournalism, Tim Van de Velde was inspired to go into architectural photography by the work of Alexander Rodchenko and László Moholy-Nagy. He photographed “In the Mix,” a house in Antwerp. “The whole combination of colors, divided spaces, and the interior garden in the midst of Antwerp is like an oasis,” he says. 

What does your dream interior look like?

“The reason I got into architecture and interior photography was my fascination for early 20th-century, modernist architecture. So I would like to incorporate some elements inspired by that period into my home.”
