Stylist Marieke van Proosdij

Wait until you see this whimsical apartment! First of all, Miss Michelle is such a sweetheart, she is always sharing links with me and I appreciate this so, so much! Today she sent over a link to the portfolio of Pimpelwit, stylist/textile designer Marieke van Proosdij, in the Netherlands I was like, can I get a what what!? This rocks! And after doing a little digging, I learned that Marieke is from Den Hague and does freelance styling work for magazines like VT Wonen. Nice! Here’s a glimpse of her lovely apartment below… Pay careful attention to all the little details…

Don’t you dig that lampshade? Currently living in Amsterdam, Marieke is a genuine talent whose work really inspires and motivates me today. Maybe she’ll do the same for you, too. You can view some of her prop designs on her blog and Flickr stream. Have fun!

Ana Ventura Prints

Artist/maker Ana Ventura, who lives and works in lovely Lisbon, always has such pretty work to behold… These two prints, available at Twig or in Ana’s online store, look so soft and natural photographed here…

So many of us are in love with pops of golden yellow right now, this lovely harvest hue, which looks gorgeous with gray and red-orange with pops of black.

Lorena Arance Photography

Oh my, oh my… Lorena Arance Photography is simply delightful! I found her shop for the first time a few moments when I took the time to read her Flickr profile and good golly it’s gorgeous.

I want to hop on a train to Spain and hang out with this lady for the day to see if some of her mojo rubs off on me because she is a goddess with a camera. Check out these photographs, all available for sale in her online shop (yay!) and make sure you visit her blog, Serendipity, too.

Psst: Watermarks do not appear in the photography when you order them, just in case you’re wondering…
