A NORDIC VIBE

This optimally planned apartment in popular Vasastan, Stockholm is a ray of sunshine. The 670 square-feet pad is quite bright and airy with a decor on point with that dreamy Nordic vibe. Overall, the place shows off a minimalist yet soothing style with obvious touches of personal charm. Despite the serene look, each room says a lot about its owners without trying too hard. You can tell every single piece they used was carefully selected and placed. I particularly love how the richness of the wood furniture glows and brings warmth to the soft color palette.

ELROY INK

When I think of Tasmania, the first thing that comes to mind is the infamous Looney Tunes character, the Tasmanian Devil. But know, I'm glad to have found these gorgeous giclée prints by Tasmania-born graphic designer Ken Lawson to have a new reference to Australia's favorite vacation island. Based on the surf coast of Victoria, Australia, Ken created a limited and open edition of graphic prints under the name Elroy Ink. “Whilst Elroy Ink aims to express something that is quintessentially me, it's also important to me that my work is accessible enough to find a place in other people's hearts,” he explains. The whole collection is pretty great and is available on his online store. Do you have a fave?

THE ART OF DISASSEMBLING

Who says dismantling old household objects can't be an artform? For Canadian photographer Todd Mcllellan, this has become the inspiration for his latest project he calls “Disassembly”. He has taken apart vintage artifacts like a wind-up clock, an old camera, a flip clock and even an old-fashioned push lawn mower and arranged every single component into these intricate compositions. They are quite beautiful and I'm sure it took him lot of patience and dedication to create this captivating series.

SPANISH SPLENDOR

Please, come right in and take a tour of this stunning Madrid penthouse. An impressive semi-circular wall of floor-to-ceiling windows frames the modish living room decorated with mid-century modern treasures. This Spanish pad combines color and art seamlessly—by no means the owner of this sweet apartment is intimidated by color. She really has outdone herself by spontaneously using bright and saturated tones to unify the decor of this top-floor haven.

PARIS, JE T'AIME

I couldn't agree more with Ms. Hepburn. When in doubt, Paris is always one great destination to visit. My all time favorite city after New York, Paris steals my heart every time I go. There's something so magical and mystical about it that makes me want to discover more and more of the many hidden treasures the City of Lights has to offer. As a matter of fact, a good friend of mine is leaving later today for a week long trip to the French capital. So let's wish her a bon voyage and may she fall in love with Paris as I already have.

FLAMING STYLE

This weekend marks the unofficial start of the much anticipated Summer season (at least for us living in the U.S since we're celebrating Memorial Day). With it, comes breezy days at the beach, fabulous family get-togethers and delicious afternoon barbecues in the backyard. So why not get your grilling started right with the chic Eva Solo Grill Globe. Following the simplicity of Danish design, the integrated lid incorporates a thermometer, which saves having it hanging on the grill or lying on the ground. The black bottom half of the grill is made of aluminium, while the lid and the four-legged stand are made of stainless steel. Also, the stand is designed so a table and a holder for various grill utensils can quickly be attached. Happy grilling!

WRITING ON THE WALL

There's nothing like creating art for your own home, but this London-born artist has taken this idea a step further. Well, actually, several walls further. Shantell Martin has made it a project to cover the whole top floor a Brooklyn brownstone with her whimsical line drawings. When she first moved in, her intention was to limit her drawings to parts of a wall in her room, but inch by inch her art spontaneously took over her office and laundry room walls. Apparently, she draws on everything that comes her way, which explains her crazy fun refuge. She's even taken bottles she found on the street as canvas to display her freestyle drawings. I wonder if her mom ever let her paint on the walls when she was little. She's definitely getting away with it now. And I'm glad she is, since I'm really digging her style. Have a designful and relaxing Holiday weekend!

HYPNOTIC TIMES

One of the many finds that caught my attention at ICFF this year, were these fun eco-friendly, handcrafted cardboard and paper wall clocks made by Tendo Studio. The Amarillo Clocks´ colorful hands break up the concentric rings and angles that look almost hypnotic, creating a fabulous design ideal for homes and offices. The hands are totally customizable. You get to choose from orange, green, blue, white, red or yellow so they can match perfectly with your decor. Aren't they fun?
