“Your home defines who you are, and who you want to be,” proclaims fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg. And I second that way of thinking. Through decor and artwork you can easily infuse your personality and style in your home. This Parisian flat is no exception to the rule. It's the striking artwork by young artists that provides a perfect framework for this eclectic home in the French capital. An open floor plan houses the kitchen, the dining room and lounge area, all surrounded by bold and fun pieces of art that most certainly make a statement about the owners. I truly belief artwork should reflect your spirit and not just something to fill your walls with. You honestly can do it without breaking the bank. All you need is a little imagination.

The Armory Show is a staple in New York's art scene. Considered one of the most important events in the city, The Armory is the leading international contemporary and modern art fair showcasing works from the 20th and 21st centuries. Bade Stageberg Cox has developed “Street Seats, a furniture project created for the Pier 94 Coffee Bar at The Show. The 50 chairs, found abandoned on the streets of New York, were repaired and given a new life with a coat of taxi cab yellow paint. Like the city’s residents, the chairs are an eclectic mix, migrating throughout the fair during its five-day run. The bottom of each chair is stamped and documented with the date and location it was recovered.” Aren't these awesome? These are just a few of the chairs from the project, but if you want to see all 50, you can do so here. Which one is your favorite? Actually, I have a couple. This would definitely be a fun DIY project to take on—of course, on a much smaller scale. BTW, you can get your hands on any of these as the chairs are available for purchase.

Today, I thought I would take a small detour from the road of fabulous interiors to share with you these phenomenal and unique X-ray photographic prints by English artist Nick Veasey. Through his art, Nick likes “to counter the obsession with superficial appearance [we all seem to have] using X-rays to strip back the layers and show what is like under the surface.” The themes of his collections vary: from plant life, insects, fashion, toys, animals to aquatic life, man and machine. I'm simply in awe of his creativity and the beautiful imagery he captures using this technology. You can see more of his incredible work in his website and in this Limited Editions Catalogue.

Inspiration via un peu d'air sur la terre



Fairy tales have always been part of everyone's life. But every now and then, different versions of these classic children's stories we’ve grown to know and love are reinvented. As a matter of fact, they're not exclusively for kids anymore. Like the new TV series Once Upon A Time and the soon-to-be-released Snow White feature films, these tales get to be enjoyed by adults as well. These hyper-minimalist posters, designed by Christian Jackson, are also clever interpretations of these tales that you can own to keep alive those precious childhood memories. Just take a peek at the whole collection and perhaps you might not be able to resist the temptation to buy one here.

It's Friday!! so join me on a trip across the Atlantic to take a quick tour of the stunning home of creative couple Virginine Denny and Alfonso Vallès where they both live and work. When I saw it, it immediately captivated me. I mean, what's not to love about it? Besides being in my all-time favorite city, Paris, its interiors are simply poetic. Of course, it also helps that these stunning images by photographer Petra Bindel, styled by Emma Persson Lagerberg, truly captured the industrial beauty of what once was a button factory. The fusion of styles and casual design is spot on. Love, love, love all the phenomenal artwork and the spontaneous use of typography as decorating elements throughout the place. It's a smart and inexpensive way of adding an element of surprise and character to any room. I think I'm going to be dreaming about this place tonight. Have a superb weekend!

Living in this striking, modern home must be like living inside your own art gallery. Designed by architect Pedro Ribeiro Pita, the house is located in one of the most privileged spots in the province of Cadiz, Spain. The impressive art installations and collection of contemporary paintings magnifies the clean and simple lines of its bones. It's quite clear that art is what matters here—some pieces were even designed specifically for the space—and at times becomes part of the wall and ceilings like in the main stairwell of the house. On the other hand, the furniture and decor is comfortable and timeless and takes a secondary role so it doesn't compete with the beauty of the artwork.

What happens when imaginative storytelling, a strong sense of craft and a good dose of color magically merge under one roof? The answer: Lab Partners, a design studio founded by the husband and wife creative team of Ryan Meis and Sarah Labieniec. Based out of sunny Oakland, California, everything this duo designs is pretty amazing, but this poster series they call California Gold is up there on my list of favorites. These handsome posters feature graphic renditions of some of the Golden State's natural wonders printed in black and gold metallic ink. The whole series is truly a beautiful tribute to nature, and Lab Partner's way of giving back to their inspiration by donating 5% of all sales to the California Nature Conservancy.
