Stylist Stella Nicolaisen

I came across the portfolio of stylist Stella Nicolaisen today thanks to a comment left by reader Anna Sterntaler (thanks, Anna!) and enjoyed viewing all the details in each creative scene. I think the teacups on gifts is my favorite idea and image, though this has a lot to do with all the tea that I buy (and consume!) and how pretty I think a dainty vintage teacup is both as a vessel and as somewhat of an art object. I also love the display set up in the white ceramic sink, so usual yet there’s a story there if you look close enough and allow your imagination to wander. I’m sure you’ll enjoy visiting Stella’s website today… Here is but a glimpse of all the beauty to be explored on her site.

Beautiful and most certainly a stimulating collage of images for the senses… Makes the hands want to craft and create, the mind to explore, the heart to carry one away… wouldn’t you agree? When I see the work of a talented stylist, I immediately want to repurpose objects in my home, restyle something on a shelf, or run to a flea market to source some magical find for a corner in my home. I guess that is the point of viewing all of this talent each day — to stimulate imagination and creativity. :)

Design Must…

I found this quote rather interesting, beautiful and well… true! It’s from Graphic Exchange and I thought you might like it…

Design Must...

Now I only wish this were a print or poster large enough for framing. It’s lovely, don’t you think?

Lilly Berlin

While I’m talking a little about Berlin designers today, have you heard of Lilly Berlin, the lampshade queen? Oh she’s so great at selecting beautiful fabrics to cover her shades with for both table lamps and pendants. I like the patterns she finds, from nesting dolls to cute little scenes, animals, and lots of tiny prints and her shades come in made sizes and shapes. Here’s a view of some, see which ones you like…

Jung Porzellan

Crazy about ceramics? I recently discovered the small porcelain maker Jung Porzellan in Berlin and immediately thought about you and that perhaps you’d like to learn about them. Each piece is handcrafted in their studio so no two are alike, and from what I’ve noticed, it seems they enjoy designing well made, beautiful items that have a bit of a sense of humor to them. That really came shining through when I saw their banana holder, which you can hang in the kitchen from the ceiling. :)
