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!

INGENIOUS SHADES

Today, I thought I'd give you a short break from beautiful interiors and wow you with these phenomenally witty, sculptural images by Stockholm-based photographer Philip Karlberg. An idea that started a few months back materialized in this crazy fun project for shelter publication Plaza Magazine. Overall, it took him six days and about 1,200 wooden sticks to recreate six ingenious portraits of some classic sunglasses wearers like Johnny Depp, Jackie O, Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, John Belushi and Steve McQueen (from top to bottom). Aren't they amazing? Bravo to Philip for his patience and imagination.

CREATIVE MINDS THINK ALIKE

There's nothing that will keep creative minds from creating, especially when talented ones join forces—like German product designers Eva Marguerre and Marcel Besau, who teamed up to create Studio Besau Marguerre. Besides product design, their services range from interiors design to visual communication and branding. I'm glad I came across their site–it's a wonderful source of inspiration and eye candy. Take for instance this DIY project they worked on for Brigitte magazine. It's overly clever how they came up with these beautiful vignettes of chairs that have been refurbished together with the materials used for the transformation. Plus each of the chairs turned out simply gorgeous and give you some unique ideas to try on your own... right? If you have a few minutes and want to enjoy some of the behind-the-scenes happenings of the shoot, click here.

THROUGH THE LENSE OF: MENNO ADEN

Haven't we all wished to be a fly on the wall, at one time or another? For sure, I have. Now thanks to German photographer Menno Adden, we can enjoy that perspective through his imaginative and über cool Room Portraits. By installing his camera on the ceiling of various rooms, he's been able to capture rather voyeuristic views of different Berlin interiors and flattening them into two-dimensional scale models. His unusual vignettes are not your typical room shots, but they give us a different vantage point that we normally wouldn't have. I have to say they're quite amusing.

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.

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.

INNER BEAUTY

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.
