I have always been a fan of Swedish design. It’s clean simplicity, that feeling of calm, has always attracted me.

I found these great interior shots via DESIGN LOVE FEST!

Pictures speak a thousand words!!

This is a great room to relax in…loving the pewter accents and lack of clutter. I especially like the way the books are stacked…which also adds a touch of color. The addition of wooden chests adds warmth.

Found this great photo which includes an awesome bookshelf on Design Love Fest this morning.

Retro is what makes me drawn to this space…and the crisp simplicity!

Love this watercolor match to the room too!  Happy Tuesday everyone!

I am happy to be back to my blog (August totally disappearing due to

laptop collapse) with a new HDD up and running!  Here is a great

example for hanging multiple prints/paintings. which is always a

challenge.  This can very inspirational if  you are a collector of special

pieces of framed art, but are in a quandary as to how to display them

tastefully.   Your collection will not look exactly like this, but it will

definitely show your own personality! I, myself, am faced with this

problem, being one of those with an art ‘stash’ which I have recently

perused!

Happy Hanging!

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’m finally getting ready to move into a new apartment, and am gathering photos that inspire.  I came across this photo from Metropolis Magazine for NY Design Week.  If I could only keep it simple and airy as this pic…I could reach my goal.

Moving is always a good time to streamline and a great chance to freshen your apartment.
