Swedish Delight

I've always loved the Scandinavian design sensibility. It has an unparalleled eye for simplicity and composition that's unique. So let's start this last week of July with a little eye candy from Swedish photographer Karl Anderson. His jaw-dropping images capture the quintessential Scandinavian spirit I'm talking about. Droll, drool, drool!

Enchanting Taste

A key attribute for being a great designer is having the ability to find inspiration on every little thing we're exposed to, and conceptualize it in our work. One designer and tastemaker I find masters that talent is Kelly Wearstler, known for her enchanting take on interiors and luxury lifestyle. I have always admired her daring use of color and scale in her interiors. Her whimsical style of accessorizing is simply beautiful. The Los Angeles-based, award-winning designer has left her imprint in several international and domestic resorts and hotels, restaurants, stores and residences for a high-profile and celebrity clientele. “I am always aware of my surroundings and I spend time each day searching for beautiful and unusual things,” says Wearstler. She has an inherent affection for taking photos of the things that capture her attention and excite her, which she shares in her blog My Vibe My Life. Trust me, you're in for a treat.

A Day in The Park

Some of my favorite sources of inspiration for my work are European shelter magazines. I can never get enough of their innovation and I'm always delighted to see how they push the editorial envelope in their editorials. While drooling over the pages of the February/March edition of Maison Française magazine (one of my ultimate faves), I was enamored by these incredibly surreal images by Coco Amardeil. The story features designer furniture and decor to illustrate the trends for Spring 2011. The photo shoot took place in France Miniature, a miniature park tourist attraction in Élancourt, France, featuring scale models of major French landmarks and monuments. I think they were so clever to play with the difference in scale to give the furniture a monumental role over the miniature models.
Great fun!!

Through The Lense Of: Simon Bevan

Photographing interiors is not an easy task, especially when trying to capture the essence of a space. But for London photographer Simon Bevan, it comes naturally. His interiors portfolio is absolutely dashing; every single image seems to tell the seductive story behind each room he photographs. His compositions are exquisite and every shot is filled with curious details. His work speaks for itself.

Challenging Design

I'm a huge fan of the Danish housewares design company Normann Copenhagen. I love their simplistic aesthetics and the way they challenge conventional design rules. They like to think of it as “putting on a pair of glasses and seeing the world in a different way”. I'm thrilled to have recently discovered their blog, and on it these fun kaleidoscope-like compositions showcasing some of their products. Aren't they genius? They immediately remind me of these. Enjoy!

Fine Dining

Historically the dining room consists of a large table, most commonly rectangular, with two armchairs at the end and an even number of armless chairs along the sides. Although the family dining experience has somewhat changed and the traditional dining room per se has evolved, it's still and important space in our home. Whether grand or small, it is a room we must certainly not neglect. For many it's where they gather every day for family dinners, and for others it's a place for formal dining with guests or on special occasions and holidays. Having said that, here's a glimpse at the work of the very accomplished lifestyle photographer Emily Gilbert, who has beautifully captured the essence of these exquisite dining spaces. An inspiration overload. Have a designful weekend!

A Splash of Spring

Today I'm heading back home from a few days in Miami where the weather was absolutely dreamy. It was nice to trade jackets and gloves for sunglasses and shorts — a much needed break from a long and cold New York Winter. This change of scenery, and weather, made me look forward to the warmer days of Spring. So what better way to welcome this joyful season than with these inspiring and stunning images from the amazing portfolio of photographer Johnny Miller. The use of color in his imagery is uplifting and beautiful. It's like a breath of fresh air.
