Hi everyone. Today I’d like to introduce you to a Scandinavian photographer and blogger who’ll keep you breathless the time you check the blog. Wanna know who is it? It’s Anna Leena, author behind Anna Leena’s home. Needless to remind you how enamored I am with Scandinavian style, so Anna Leena’s blog is a real treasure that I highly recommend checking! Her pictures are incredibly inspiring and her home looks absolutely fabulous! If you’d like to see home tours, hop on her blog. Here are a few photos to give you an idea of the gorgeousness you’ll find on Anna Leena’s blog.
Just as I said in my previous post, I popped by again to wish you all a lovely weekend, with a pretty post which I hope you’ll love. I figured that we all love balloons. All of us, no exception! And so I put together a small collection of balloon-y pictures which are cheerful, airy, dreamy and all in all beautiful pictures. I thought this would be the perfect way to wish you a gorgeous weekend and to thank you for your support and visits for the past week!
It’s such a delight to flip through my bookmarks, you know? After a long day, I finally come home, have dinner, grab my laptop and dive into the HUGE list of bookmarks I’ve saved throughout my blogging experience. Bookmarks of sites that made me gasp, smile, be mesmerized and inspired all at once. Today was no exception and while scrolling and checking my bookmarks I came across this great photographer, Mikkel Vang! Perhaps you already know about him as his work appeared in famous shelter magazines such as Vogue Living, Elle Decoration, Harpers Bazaar and more. I loved Mikkel’s work mainly because of the stunning balance seen in his photography: chic extravaganza and a livable ambiance, airy light places against dark, very dramatic ones. And it all felt perfectly good, with no exceeded limits.
Today while going through my multiple and very inspiring bookmarks I came across a name which caught my eye and spoke to me, whispering a tempting ‘stop’. I’m sure this happened to you at some point, right? Well, you won’t believe how mesmerized I was when I clicked on the category ‘Interiors’. All the pictures were right up my alley, very shabby chic, romantic and even feminine – and what else can a girl ask for after a working day :)? So the magic name is Miki Duisterhof and she’s a photographer, a fabulous one (just wait to see her clients: West Elm, William Sonoma, Veranda and many, many others!). Seriously, I was hypnotized by all that beauty! Here’s what I’m talking about:
I’m more and more in love with Romanian artists and creative minds. First I must mention Freshome, a fabulous site about interior design (last week I found out that the founder of the site lives not so far away from me – exciting!), today I read about Mario Badescu, who is also from Romania, known worldwide for his line of skin care products and now Miha Matei, a talented photographer born in Romania, now living in New York and Los Angeles with her husband and son. In Miha’s portfolio I found pictures which were in my inspiration files since forever, yet I never knew that they were taken by her, like the below picture which can be seen in the post about Ashe+Leandro Interiors. Miha’s photography is stunning and her portfolio is one of those which you want to fully take from her site and just put it on your blog, it’s that good!
Stefan Thurmann is a Hamburg-based photographer who takes some seriously wonderful pictures! Of course his work wouldn’t be the same without the brilliant stylists he’s working with, but nonetheless his eye catches the beauty of what he’s shooting, far beyond what we all see. In Stefan’s portfolio you’ll see calming, neutral rooms, with cozy blankets and wood all over, as well as some other shoots, more contrasting and stylishly edgy. His work was published in many magazines and without teasing you more, here are few pictures from Stefan’s portfolio which appealed to me the most!
Hello everyone! Have you heard of Monique Germon? No? That’s alright, I haven’t heard of her either until now, so I knew I must introduce Monique to all of you! The title of this post says everything actually – she’s a designer, stylist, photographer, writer and art director (quite impressive, right?). She lives in Australia and has a background in classical singing, piano & extensive travel. Monique now works as a creative professional on various projects focusing mainly on design, writing & photography and her style is all about charm and whimsy – sounds perfectly attractive as I always thought that a good slice of relaxed humor makes art even more stunning and catchy. Here’s some of Monique’s work, but on her site and blog you’ll find much more, so go ahead, check it out!
Hi, my dearest friends! Happy Friday to all! I can’t believe it’s almost weekend, this week flew by without me noticing it! However, I’m really excited for the weekend and look forward finally seeing my husband today, spending time with ALL the family, having long brunches and just good time! What are your plans for the weekend? Wherever you are, I hope your week was productive and you’ll have a weekend worth it! Oh and if wherever you are it’s the same HOT, killing weather, stay cool, better near some pool/river/lake and enjoy the breezy moments and the sun slightly kissing your cheeks! I’m leaving you with the warm and soft photography of Etsy seller Simply Hue (quite sure I don’t need to introduce her to you). Enjoy and have an absolutely delightful weekend!
Hi everyone! I missed you all so much! I missed blogging and reading all of your inspiring blogs so much! I’m at home now, feels so good to eat my mom’s food and walk through the streets of my hometown. I miss my husband though and can’t wait for him to come here next week! While I’m still recovering after too much food and too many moments when I did nothing, I want to share with you some pictures of my country, Moldova, so peaceful and always inspiring!
Perhaps you remember when I was tweeting and posting everywhere that I’m the lucky winner of Covet Chicago giveaway, don’t you? I won five gorgeous prints kindly offered by four very generous sponsors: Susannah Conway, Victoria of sfgirlbybay, Ez of Creature Comforts and Cara of Hilljoy Photography (how lucky am I?). So I’ve been wanting to feature each and every single of these talented photographers and for the start, welcome Susannah Conway! I’ll be straight to you, I was introduced to Susannah’s work when I checked Brigitte‘s giveaway sponsors and oh, I was instantly enamored with her dreamy photography! With a vintage feeling, Susannah Conway’s photography is the piece of art that would look amazing in a home, giving it that special charm and catchy look. I’m very honored to have two of Susannah’s prints in my home (hopefully soon) and now I want to share with you some of the pictures from Susannah’s portfolio:
