Born in France and raised in London, stylist Marietta Beasley's current loft in Atlanta, Georgia blends European style with New York '70s art colony cool — when she acquired her space 15 years ago she was the first person to get a certificate of occupancy in the downtown area. Now it's both home and studio, with an every changing collection of inspirating pieces from all over the world.


Today I'm admiring a great modern twist on the vanitas still life genre by artist James Hopkins, who takes this rather morbid theme and gives it a playful interpretation, with his creation of skulls formed by the clever arrangement of various everyday objects on bookshelves.

Interior designer, blogger, stylist and owner of the online store Moltaz Design, Henrick Eriksson has applied his design philosophy to his lovely summer home, a cottage dating from 1780. When he purchased it, its charming rough log walls and old oak floors were — unbelievably — hidden behind plastic wallpaper and cork tiles respectively. Henrick also tackled low ceilings, lack of insulation and removed the gypsum plaster from the walls, taking them back to their original condition. Renovating the house bit by bit made it manageable within his busy work schedule — and the resulting style of the cottage is described by Henrick as 'New England with industrial touches'. As he works with colour all day, Henrick deliberately chose a restful and neutral palette for his own space, concentrating on textures, form and materials to keep it lively and interesting.

Love the warm, industrial modern look of J. Crew menswear director Frank Muytjens's upstate New York weekend home — and the fact that he has no internet or other technological distractions while he's there, too. Smart man.

Inspired to make as much of the wonderful space and light in their lovely Copenhagen apartment, Kristina and Arash decided to think outside the box and go up, creating a stepped living/sleep space that also offers huge amounts of storage. Arash, an architect, designed the furniture with Kristina, which he then built it himself. The use of oversized pieces throughout continues the play with scale — it's a fun and interactive space to live in, and perfect for their little boy to explore, too. Morehere on Bolig Magasinet.
Daybeds are beautiful no matter the setting. Whether French or Italian the daybed is timeless. Add a mix of pillows in coordinating textiles.  Pull it up to a dining table for instant seating or float it in a room. The daybed is versatile, fun, and adds a punch of creativity to any space. Try one!




I love the change of seasons. And I love the beginning of autumn. Most certainly when it's a golden and warm autumn with crisp nights. Then the nature prinks itself up with the most charming colours - I think of yellow, red, orange, purple, brown, forest green. I took this as a starting point for today's '5 Happy Inspirations' that have one thing in common - autumn hues.

1. You love tiles and you love plaids? How about a combination - these tiles come in plaid or gingham patterns and wonderful colours. Seen on New Ravenna.

2. Love this XL glass bottles in warm autumn hues. Found them on the fab and super cute webshop Pierrot & Coco.

3. Two weeks ago Zara Home opened its first store in Munich. And this chunky knit and happily coloured throw will make its way into my apartment soon!

4. The best treat for your next DIY project - the environmentally responsible paint range by Mini Moderns!

5. My friend and illustrator Tanja added a super happy autumn idea to her home by transforming hazelnuts into cute little bears. So adorable!

Inspired by the very nature of water in motion, Fl’eau bath designed by Joel Roberts has evolved from a single surface corian body celebrating the beauty of fluidity. This bath is another great creation by Joel Roberts following the already popular Eaux Eaux sink.
Fl’eau is a freestanding bath that has embodied the notion of an overflowing bath to create stability to an otherwise rounded and unstable tub, one that is symmetrical and viably accessible from either side.
Fl’eau’s allure derives from its feminine curvature and twisted, flowing lines, creating a comfortable and practical bath that would act as a centrepiece in any home.
The Eaux Eaux sink is Joel Roberts take on the oceanic wave. The simple form, in one fluid motion, integrates the spout into the basin. It’s like the flow and ebbing of the waves in a synchronized dance. The base is secured into a recessed counter top while the stainless steel body is glam-ed up with a blush of paint. The overall effect is perfect and yes….I want one for mi casa.
