These photos speak a thousand words for a simply good feeling in a personal space.  Something I have noticed in these photos, and that I am actually utilizing in my new apartment,  is the use of natural woven objects…baskets, hats, blinds, etc.  I am enjoying the feeling it evokes.  I want to thank emmas designblogg…a great Swedish blog…for these photos.  She also has a great Pinterest.  Happy creating!

 

I haven’t been posting for about one month because I was fastidiously

moving into my new apartment in a 100 year old house in

downtown Ann Arbor, and have been facing ‘new space’ challenges…

what this blog is about!  I have discarded, ruthlessly purged,

kept only the useful or beautiful and am finely able to find cyber time

(also important for yin yang in one’s apartment).  Here is an

arrangement I just hung of Bulgarian photos which I framed recently,

and love dearly, purchased from the photographer’s wife.

This photo is an iPhone photo, not perfect, but you get the idea.  The

chest of drawers holds my CD collection, stationery and hats and

scarves.  The ‘Zen of My Flat’ is a new challenge, and one that I am

enjoying.  More photos to come!

<p>prints + art

pop-deco:

Being a framer, I always have an over abundance of framed prints, and drawings.

The trick is getting it all out of hiding in a sensible  and attractive fashion.

This is one way…using the shelves to group framed prints, interspersing objets d’art.

It is not too formal, and can be added to or taken away easily.

White as a background

always works for me!

Not only do I love the white drawing-like painting in the room, but I especially like the splash of orange.  It is a ‘feel good’ color.  I relate it to the Sacral Chakra, SVADISTHANA, ones own abode (if you are into that). But if that is not  your thing,  it just adds a great punch to a room.  I use it in my space and it definitely has a pleasant effect.

Black & White Collection

This is one of my favorite groupings. I would love this in my next ‘appartement’.

I love when a  room has just enough to be comfortable and look great at the same time.

 

Thank you to Design is for Living

This is a great look look…the ultimate in clean lines.

I love everything about these rooms:  calm color scheme and eclectic accessories.  This stunning home belongs to Maria Øverby, a Norwegian ceramist.

A large room like this can be pulled together by keeping a simple theme of black and white….

love the wood floors and the white staircase…taking your eye up,

along with the tall black lamp pointing to the high windows.
