Photographer Coco Amardeil

This is one seriously talented photographer that you’ll want to bookmark for sure. Canadian talent Coco Amardeil lives in Paris and displays such character and maturity in her work – I love how she tells stories that range from serious to ironic, graphic, even humorous and always with the best light and color. These photos really put me in the mood for Spring and boots on chairs, photographing china in the streets and hopping in the dryer for a little spin! Ha! So creative and imaginative… you are sure to love the details in each of these photos below.

I discovered Coco just this morning through a publicist in Paris who wrote to me about the new work from French textile designer Anne Hubert and I noticed that Coco Amardeil took the photos of her Spring collection. It’s always fun to play connect-the-dots online, you find the most amazing talent that way! P.S. If you are looking for some fun music to cheer up your day, visit Coco’s blog and click on the music player on the lower left corner of her home page. Enjoy!

Eden & Eden

Speaking of awesome web shops, have you heard of Eden & Eden? They have a storefront in San Francisco that was shot by Jen Siska (shown below) but in addition to their gorgeous retail space they have an equally inspiring online space that is simple to navigate with exceptional products…

I see so many things that I want to buy like the wooden button coasters and the braided ring in gold which is by Tatty Divine in London whom I’m a fan of. And HELLO don’t you love the black & white wallpaper behind their cash register? :)

Speaking of photographer Jen Siska, she recently photographed the kitchen of San Francisco artist and shop co-owner Lisa Congdon for Dwell magazine — you can view those photos here.

Supermarket Sarah

I just fell in love with a web shop because this is seriously cool stuff. I found it via a wonderfully creative German blog called Ohhh… Mhhh… and the store is called Supermarket Sarah. Sarah Bagner lives near to Portobello Road in London where she has a rather interesting concept – a shop in her home where she posts things up, literally, to her walls and then invites you dear web friends to click on her wall and purchase what you see. How brilliant is this? I love it. I mean, this is truly the coolest thing I’ve seen in a very long time. Way to go Supermarket Sarah!

“Sarah decided to leave the corporate world behind her and has set up shop in her own home. Her home, round the corner from Portobello Market where she has a stall, is now overflowing with treasures and delights and she welcomes visitors with tea and cakes.”

How cool. I mean, really. Everything is one-of-a-kind so once it’s gone, it’s gone. Happy shopping!

Mad & Bolig

Oooooh I have some gorgeous inspiration for you today from a magazine that is new-to-me called Mad & Bolig published in Denmark. The more I see Danish magazines, the more I want to drive up north to visit a country that obviously has amazing taste and style. Mad & Bolig is a magazine that I found today via the lovely artist Sidsel Gaustadnes who authors the Spagat blog (please be sure to visit her blog!).

Mad & Bolig

But yes, back to this fab magazine… as I sit here and get lost in the virtual pages of Mad & Bolig I’m starting to feel like the winter lull will soon be over and perhaps then I’ll feel motivated to travel. I’m excited to plan some Summer vacations up north because I’ve never stepped foot into Denmark and I think going there would be just delightful. Plus, why move to Europe and not see these places, right? Many of our German friends drive up and stay in vacation homes on the Danish coast, it’s pretty common for the northern Germans I think — so perhaps I’ll join them. But for now, until I can be there myself, I will bask in the glow of the beautiful Danish magazines that I’m finding online. Ah.

Don’t you just love these rooms? They make me daydream of owning a summer cottage by the shore. Fresh, colorful, position — each injected with such spirit and personality.
