At home with Swedish model Elsa Hosk in New York.
I´ve been inspired by Athena Calderone for some time now and her summerhouse in Amagansett is no exception. You have probably seen her NY kitchen a million times as it is one of the most featured inspirational pictures ever I would guess. In addition to great interior taste she is also making lots of delicious food presented in the most perfect way. Athena´s first book ”Cook Beautiful” is now followed by recently released ”Live Beautiful”, both on my wishlist. You can read more about Athena and her work on her lifestyle site EyeSwoon.
It´s also fun to see how taste really changes and develops by comparing what the house looked like before the renovation. You can see what it looked like before here. And if you have missed her NY apartment with that amazing kitchen mentioned above, here you go.
At home with very talented and funny interior stylist Linnéa Salmén in her & boyfriend´s studio apartment in Stockholm. With an eye for fun shapes, details, collecting and not being afraid of defying the minimalistic trend – this place is a rare gem in the Swedish stylist team. You can see more of Linnéa´s work here.
I thought maybe the end of blogging had come but I´ll make sure to let you know before that happens since I can see that there still are some few brave ones that keep on checking in daily even though I´ve been away for so long. Thank you so much for that. It keeps me wanting to get back in here and breathe some air to what has been my baby for 10 years now….I can´t believe I´ve had it for so long but it´s definitely worth celebrating with some inspiration sharing again. These images have been around for a while but today I saw them all together again and I think they are just so beautiful. It´s actually a Zara Home campaign and the idea of using architect Danielle Siggerud´s home as back drop I brilliant.
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.
