INTERIOR TONIC

I'm glad it's Friday! I know I shouldn't complaint since it was quite a short work week, but I guess some of us are still having the Holiday blues. So what better to lift the spirit than a couple of tablespoons interior tonic? Honestly? So sit back, relax and enjoy these fanstamical images from the portoflio of Australian photographer Toby Scott. I love his work. Happy weekend!

PEDAL POWER

The weekend is hours away and I plan to do nothing but kick back, relax and perhaps go for a leisurely bike ride around town. As much as I love biking, I haven't been able to do much of it as I've spent most of my Summer weekends either working or out of town. So the time has come to dust off my two-wheeler and take it for a spin. In that state-of-mind, let me treat you to a few casual interiors where wheels play an impromptu role in the decor. Have a sweet and restful weekend!

INSTANT GRATIFICATION

I don't know if you're into Instagram, but if not, you're missing out on something really fantastic. I'm sort of addicted to the instant gratification by other people's quirky images and also by sharing with others all the cool and inspiring stuff that catch my eye. Last weekend, I took a mini break from the city and drove up to Provincetown, a charming New England town located at the extreme tip of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I spent four glorious days of simply doing nothing but catching up on necessary rest, eating delicious food and partaking in a few cocktails. Besides chilling, I made good with my Instagram followers since it had been a while that I shared any snapshots with them. Here are some of the beautiful things that captivated me while roaming through the enchanting  streets of Ptown. If you don't already follow me in Instagram, you can find me under @TheDesignerPad to start getting your daily design fix. Enjoy!

SECOND TIME AROUND

A while back I was happy to feature the stunning house of Swedish stylist Marie Olsson. I remember being mesmerized by its eclectic beauty the moment I stumbled upon it. Her delicious blend of antiques and flea-market finds gives her place a unique, warm feeling. This time around, her house is being displayed as the perfect backdrop for a Danish catalogue photo shoot. Here are a few of the lovely images shot by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen from Norm Architects and perfectly styled by Wendy West—I felt they were a nice treat to start the week off. Happy Monday!

THROUGH THE LENSE OF: HEIDE LERKENFELDT

Let's be inspired today by the beautiful work of the truly talented Danish photographer Heide Lerkenfeldt. I'm so into her delightful compositions and sense of serenity she captures in every frame. Her versatility as a photographer is amazing. Not only does she shoot amazing spaces and products, but she also does a masterful job with fashion, food and people. But don't take my word for it. Please, go browse through her portfolio and see for yourself. You will love her work as much as I do.

AN EYE FOR INTERIORS

Her passion for photography and design is what inspired Dutch photographer Marjon Hoogervorst to shoot amazing spaces. Ever since she was young, Marjon spent time photographing her room with all her hand-crafted creations. To no surprise, she has become a stellar artist capturing the essence and soul of people's homes, like this stunning Amsterdam apartment. “The places where people live tell a lot about them. That's what inspires me—that's what I like to photograph most,” she says. I encourage you to take a few minutes to browse through her beautiful portfolio here. Enjoy it!
