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!!

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.

 

Name dropping…marcel breuer, poul kjaerholm , jean prouvé jesus and mary! Oh my…but if you can’t get the real thing, going to treasure marts and second hand shops, if you will, you might be able to put this together ‘snap’! I love this room a lot. This is a fun way to put together an apartment.

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.

Norwegian designer Caroline Olsson has created the Skog lamps for Magnor Glassverk.

Description from the designer:

The Skog series consists of several lights in different sizes, shapes and colours, which can be used in combination with each other or as stand alone pieces. They are all made in mouth blown crystal with a base in oak made by using the technique of wood turning. The design is inspired by the large forests surrounding Magnor Glassverk. Skog is the Norwegian word for forest. Simply place a few of the lights together on the floor or on a table in order to create your own little forest.

Grid – Designed by Komplot for Nola.

This chair makes a statement where a little ‘wow’ is needed.   It doubles up as a functional piece and sculptural form.

 

White Base with Concrete Floors…there is an appeal to this mix.  It is easy, clean and industrial, and I must say that I adore this.   The logs add a touch of warmth.

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