SOARING HEIGHTS

I know New York is filled with stunning homes, but this Brooklyn Heights beauty is inching towards the top of my most-fab list. The home was photographed by Copenhagen-based acclaimed photographer  and recently featured in RUM magazine. To me, the soaring high ceilings is one of the fetaures that makes this space so special—giving the minimalist decor breathing space. I can't stop gushing about the floor-to-ceiling mirrors which are simply to die for. Granted, the photography is quite something too.

JUST ADD WATER 

These are the kind of finds that give me an instant smile. Maybe it's their cheerful colors or simply because they bring back happy memories of Summer. Either way, this fabulous version of the classic garden hose will add a touch of coolness to your outdoors. The Dramm Hose from West Elm is made of rubber and nickel-plated brass and resists kinking and coils easily, even in cold weather. The yellow one is my favorite... which one is yours?

LAYERING OF STYLES

There's nothing more interesting in decor than playing around with styles from different periods, like in the Stockholm apartment of artist and illustrator Mats Gustafson and jewelry and product designer Ted Muehling. Here they have exquisitely blended Scandinavian Modern furnishings with 19th-century family heirlooms and flea market finds to create a stunning Nordic retreat. They both told The New York Times Style Magazine that decorating is not about perfection, but rather a balanced layering of styles. Something they do extremely well.

ONE COOL TROPHY 

I have some sort of fascination with taxidermy—modern interpretations, that is. So I get extremely excited every time I come across these modern wall trophies as they add an air of tradition to contemporary spaces. This Steel Fox Head by Cracow-based industrial designer Magdalena Chojnacka is my latest obsession. Her Wild Head Series is an attempt to give respect to this threatened world. Hmm, I guess that's a cool way of looking at it. Triple love!

NATURAL BEAUTY

I'm soooo very happy today is Friday and that I found this charming home in Olso, Norway to inspire you with and kick off the weekend on a happy note. It belongs to Elizabeth Heier and her happy family. Their nest have a natural beauty that's rather appealing and soothing to the eye and I'm totally crushing on the white and raw wood combo that makes this space so special. What's your favorite feature in this house?  Happy weekend!

BABY LOVE

Nope, don't get any funny ideas. I'm not in the market for a baby chair or baby anything for that matter. But saw this beauty while browsing the net and thought it deserved to be featured here today. It looks very futuristic, but believe it or not the Baby Chair 616 was designed back in 1965 by Ben af Schultén for Finnish company Artek. Hmmm, don't you wish you were a baby again to enjoy this fine piece of furniture?

A DREAMY FLAT TO CALL HOME

It doesn't matter from which angle you look at this Parisian flat, you can find the touch of a designer (or two) behind its stunning design. Patrick Gilles & Dorothée Boissier, who run an architecture and design studio, have renovated this 19th-century apartment into their dream home. Through the transformation, they saved all the original glory the apartment had and brought into play, to contrast, they're modern design concept. The artwork is to die for, especially how it's randomly placed throughout the space. Of course, a lot of the furniture we see here was designed by the talented duo to make sure it fit their impeccable taste. Thank you Yatzer for enlightining us with this beauty.

OH LA LA!

Learning how to speak French has always been a dream of mine — one I know I'll get to one day. So when I found this funky print I thought it was hillarious and a sign that I needed to share them with you today. These quirky, modern and graphic lithographs by One Must Dash are a fun way of injecting some humor into your decor. Happy weekend!
