I came across this photographer’s work on Flickr, and kept coming back to his intense images of his beautiful country – Iran. A country rich in art, architecture, poetry, calligraphy and handicrafts, among other things. And, Abbas has captured all this seamlessly in his photographs…

Imagine such rich colors and craft in your home! You can view more of Abbas’s work here to get design inspiration from the Middle East.

  10. Bhavna, your photo collections always astonish me with colour. Thank you for sharing. I was always afraid of bright colour (you know how we associate ourselves with certain colours, like the paint colours we like, or the clothing colours?). Well anyway, I’m finding I like richer and deeper and brighter colours now more than ever.

    Your posts are an inspiration.

    P.S. I am finally getting around to adding you to my blogroll. I will be back more often.

    xo Terri
