Winter Styling With Metallics + Pastels

Dietlind Wolf has been on the blog before because she’s a huge inspiration to me. Whenever I need a creative lift, I dive into her blog and soak it all in. In fact, she is one of the best interior stylists in the world in my opinion – so forward thinking – nothing ever looks stagnant and I never feel like I’ve already seen it a million times. Several years ago we had a long chat on the phone about doing a workshop together and I’m still considering it because I’d love to be a part of any classroom experience with her. Have a look at some of her recent styling work which appeared as a supplement recently in Brigitte magazine. Isn’t this all just so fabulously inspiring?

I don’t know about you, but seeing these pretty things and this fab color palette really made me smile today. This makes me think of Kirsten Dunst in the 2006 film, Marie Antoinette… I loved that film — the set design, costumes, all of it.

Heavenly!

Seriously Cool Color Combos For Interiors + Stylist Kate Imogen Wood

Want to see some amazing color combos for interiors today? Kate Imogen Wood is a British stylist from the lakes region now living and working in Copenhagen. She began styling when I started blogging, in 2005, and hasn’t looked back ever since – she is obsessed with Scandinavian interiors which shows in her portfolio which you can view online here. She was nice enough to write to me to introduce herself so I thought, since I really like what I saw when I viewed her work, that I’d choose and share some of my favorites from her work below. I choose these based on primarily the color combinations. They struck me as really current and unusual – lilac with shades of green and apricot with yellow – so good! See what you think.

What do you think about these color combos? Aren’t they bananas? ** love ** And I’m all for the tropical theme going on at the moment, you too? I predict it will go right into the new year and be a big part of 2015 interiors, what do you think?

Fading Flower Prints By Trine Hisdal

If you are a flower lover like me, you just may love what I’m about to show you since it’s quite a unique take on the typical flower photography that you see on the walls of most homes. Trine Hisdal is a photographer based in Oslo, Norway who has captured flowers dying in a most stunning way through her new series of floral prints. Trine wanted to, “document the fragility of flowers and their short lived beauty, and how they look beautiful even as they start to fade.” This is just so, so pretty. But don’t take my word for it — Take a look, what do you think?

Weekend Inspiration in Green

I just have to show you a few rooms in this home shot by Lina Ostling, a Scandinavian photographer who has a knock-out blog. I just LOVE the first room shown below. It’s so, so lovely and gave me a big shot of inspiration for the weekend. I adore green in all of its shades, I find it so pretty – especially this time of the year. I hope these rooms do the same for you, too – inspire!
