I have always been a fan of photographer Pia Ulin´s work and even though I´ve admired her portfolio many times before I had to feature these once more. Two different homes (the last one at home with amazing designer Joseph Dirand) that are both so inspiring and perfectly captured by Pia and her natural way of using the light.
Located on Park Avenue, New York, with a view over Central Park – this is the home of Brazilian shoe designer Alexandre Birman when he visits the city for business once a month. Designed together with fellow Brazilian interior designer Andre Mellone they put it all together in just a few weeks time. Their shared love for Midcentury pieces and art(+ let´s assume a generous budget) is key to this beautiful result.
Ok – just one more by Studio Giancarlo Valle. The NY townhouse of Barney’s Fashion Director, Marina Larroude. Have never seen those living room (vintage lounge chairs by Jindrich Halabala for UP Závody, Brno) chairs in peach before, very different from our version at home in chocolate brown leather.

You might already follow these two but if not I´m going to give you some proper garden inspiration. I just love what they have done and wouldn’t mind at all spending mornings, days and nights in these spots. First three out, Daniella Witte´s amazing terrace and then the garden of Kristin Lagerqvist of Krickelin, also with her unique touch.
No surprise there is a stylist living in this apartment. This is the home of interior stylist Elin Kickén , 1/2 of very talented stylist duo SundlingKickén with impeccable taste. Don´t miss out on their blog either, it´s a daily read for me. Inspiring interviews, monochrome deco in featured color scheme, products to wish for and images from their work. You can find it here.

And the winds continue this way as well. Sophisticated interiors in mixed whites along with darker wood, fine art and pieces, dried natural flowers and branches & heavy curtains from ceiling to floor.
