This is the work for Urban Outfitters London by Petra Bindel, swedish photographer. I am in love with this inspiring combination of textures, colors and textiles. Please indulge in this amazing work with a hidden lesson in color theory and mixing and matching objects.

I ran into krista keltanen, a great photographer and blogger from Finland in one of those days I woke up missing far away lands that I visited and can’t wait to go back. I love her photography, it is full of honesty and character. As always nordic spaces make my heart smile and my eyes dance. This is just a taste of Krista portfolio. Enjoy!
I am in love with the mobile in this room, it might be a lamp shade but as a mobile would be just as perfect.
Black and white and a stripe of pink, why not? It looks so incredibly alive to me.
Love this photo with the detail of pink shoes, so romantic, I love it.
I always thought of writing something on top of my headboard, the problem is what, I can see myself changing my mind all the time, falling in love with new quotes every day. Maybe a chalkboard as a headboard would be a better choice for my room. Actually I think that’s a brilliant idea! :)
Oh this white rooms uplifts my spirit, just looking at it makes me happy.

I am obsess with world maps, I grew up around maps and atlases, one of my father’s obsessions as well. I’m pretty sure if back then there was a world map wallpaper my mom and dad would have definitely decorated a wall in our house with it. These new creations are so inspiring and fun that make a MUST to do in my home. This wallpaper might make you travel more often or at least I wish it will. Where are you going next?
World map wallpaper next to your travel treasures like these mirrors from Peru called “Pan de Oro” or “Bread of Gold”, such a great idea with so much meaning full of stories to embellish your home.

I wish I were in Austin this week to see first hand these explosions of color and creativity. Responsible for these creations and for bringing a smile to my face this morning is Bonnie
, who finished her MFA in 2009 from the University of Texas in Austin. Currently she lives in Austin and works as a Youth Arts Instructor at the Dougherty Arts School leading creative projects for K-5 graders. Totally lovely and inspiring. Enjoy!
is a Milan based artist/designer duo comprised by Francesco Rugi and Silvia Quintanilla. This new project is called RGB juxtaposing images in primary colors that once put through a light or film in BLUE, MAGENTA or GREEN will bring a single layer out. RGB was shown this week in at the Design Week in Milan 2013. I love the natural history themes picked for these wallpapers. Incredibly inspiring and yummy to the eye. Enjoy!

Miso, an artist from the Ukraine, sublet this apartment in Melbourne, Australia. I love the shots of the details, the walls in itself are an inspiration. Seeing an artist creating is always uplifting, good energy to surround us with. To see more of her work see here.

I’ve never been into tattoos. I always believed the skin itself contains many stories told in codes through birthmarks, the constellation of freckles or the simple line folds that seems maps of an uncertain land. Simplicity at its best. But, I do appreciate the art of tattooing, I had few dear friends that embraces the art and I had gotten to appreciate it even more. But if I would ever adventure into the tattoo culture I think these examples would be perfect and exactly what it would feel right up my alley! I found these simple tattoos whimsical add ons for your skin’s tales.

I found this apartment in Amsterdam with pretty much all the elements that I’ve been talking about the past month welcoming the Spring 2013: The forever white canvas apartment type, the splashes of pastels and spots of vivid colors here and there, the incredible amounts of light and vintage pieces, also the chairs from famous and loved designers like Saarinen and Eames.
Chairs from Eames and Saarinen.
I want those towels!!!! they are perfect against the neutrals
Love these wall collages, they are all so inspiring and interesting to look at.
Enjoy the long weekend!
Happy Easter to all my folks! I wish you a weekend full of love and creativity! I would like to share few things with unique Easter spirit to start a great weekend!
Nordic Bunny! This is my kinda bunny!
I love this idea, so simple and so beautiful, just fill some eggshells with wax and a wick. You can make them in pastels! Adorable. Kids would love this! I would.
The bunny coat! The most endearing coat I’ve seen for kids in a long time!
Painted and distressed Mason Jars! this is a super easy DIY for the weekend! So cute!
The bunny alphabet!! I love this illustration on bamboo for a kid’s room.
Have a great weekend!!
Continuing on a Pastel note, I ran into the new Ferm-Living catalog, which, is full of pastels tones and nostalgia. Ahhh.. great combination of colors bringing the new breeze of march full of emotions and memories from lost childhoods and new ones to come. I have never seen feeling and art direction win over the hard sell mentality of the “product integrity” or “make the logo bigger!”. Finally a catalog with delightful washed out tones and lighting that interferes with the original product making it closer to art and not to advertising. I personally would shop more often if I was exposed to this kind of end result between design and art direction. Love it! Of course it had to be from Denmark.. not surprised about that! Enjoy.
Wall Stickers to do your own arrangement.
Gorgeous kid’s wall.
I am in love with this wallpaper and the wall lights are adorable!
Total wallpaper nostalgia! Can’t get more 70′ tthat this!
Great wallpaper with the stripe tent and the washed out lighting filter makes it even more dreamy.
