Hus & Hem Interior Inspiration

I was reading Jen’s blog, Made By Girl, last night and found a link to a Scandi magazine called Hus & Hem (you must check it out!) which I recall seeing during my travels. Have you heard of it? Jen shows some of her favorite rooms here, so I don’t want to steal her thunder by reposting her picks so I’ve included some bait to get you over to her blog to check out the rest… these photos are some of my favorites. Is this alluring enough for you?

StyleRoom Community

Remember when Domino magazine had that spot on their site where you could upload photos of your room and create somewhat of a style file? I heard from a company today based out of Sweden that has something similar and they’ve expanded it to the English speaking market. The UK crowd seems to be taking to it — it’s called StyleRoom and it’s a community for home decoration aimed at those who enjoy decorating (duh) and sharing their projects and ideas with other kindred spirits. Here’s a peek at some of the homes in their community…

To play along you simply create a free account and then upload images of your rad pad and interact with others from there. I haven’t joined but I did have fun browsing their site for a bit today. I didn’t spend a lot of time on StyleRoom thought since I can finally walk (yay!) so I got out of the house this afternoon for a bit and stumbled around with my little brace on (he he) looking for some organizing bins for a home project I’m about to get to work on. But anyway, StyleRoom looks promising so give it a whirl. They just launched this UK site so there’s not a ton of involvement yet so perhaps you may be interested in getting involved? I’ll leave that up to you, but at least check it out and let me know what you think.

And don’t miss the Swedish site where they have a lot more users in their community and man, some of the homes are sweet.

Simbiosis = Crafty Cuteness

Have you heard of crafter Julia Bravo from Simbiosis in Oregon? I stumbled upon her work today via Flickr and fell in love with her sweet zakka-inspired sewing room and the pretty things she makes and sells in her 3 shops here, here and here.

It’s exciting to catch a glimpse of crafty spaces, don’t you? All the magic that happens within these four walls… It’s fun to imagine the maker at work and how she might lay out the fabrics and decide on patterns and layout…

Ozlem Haluk Photography

One thing leads to another, doesn’t it? I was directed today by Lauren over at Etsy to a shopping survey they’re conducting on their site (you can take the survey here) and I came across the photography of Ozlem Haluk (aka Amelie Poulain) featured prominently on their survey page. A few clicks later and I found heavenly images that I felt an instant emotional response from. They seem to tell many stories, especially if you look at each one and allow your imagination to play. Shame, joy, tranquility, surrender, passion… Here are just a few, you’ll need to visit Ozlem’s shop to see them all…

Did you know that Ozlem, who lives just outside of Manchester, England, just so happens to be an actress? I can really see that in her photography as each feels a bit cinematic to me.
