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.

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!

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.

always works for me!

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.

If you have some spring freshening up to do, here are some ‘neutral’ ways to brighten up your apartment.  With spring here, I am in the mood for sunlight and a feeling of clean.  I have the urge to purge all of my unwanted items and refresh my space.  These looks are inspiring me, and maybe they will have the same effect on  you.  HAPPY SPRING EQUINOX!

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.

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.

The patterns in this room add a cozy, easy feeling.   I love the combination of the rustic African Art with the contemporary furniture.  Ashanti stools have a variety of uses…end table, foot stool, place to set books or a drink, coffee table or extra seating.

This is a simple way to be festive for the holidays.  It doesn’t take much to get into the spirit.
