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?
These limited editions are exhibited and sold at Røst, a design and interior shop in Norway. I’m in love.

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!
The above home is from a feature shot for Hus&Hem magazine in Sweden. Love it!

I’m curious so please entertain me… Are any particular color palettes catching your eye lately? I’m getting bored with the usual suspects (black and white, hot pink and gray, pastels with copper, summer-y citrus hues) and am looking towards a more Autumn selection in an earthy palette with flecks of pale muddy rose and some purple. Here’s what I’m attracted to at the moment…
Photographer Nicole Franzen, whom I just love.
What is your color crush at the moment? If you write your own color crush post, please link it in the comments section below so I can see it – only something you’ve written for Fall 2013 though, please. Thank you!

Hello everyone, how is your summer so far? Today is the Fourth of July – Independence Day! And though I live in Germany now, I can’t help but to think about all of my friends and family who are in Boston today for the big 4th celebration that we all loved to visit each year. If you are American, how are you celebrating the 4th? I’m simply taking the day off to relax and get caught up on some reading, tend to my flowers, and enjoy the sunshine on my balcony. Simplicity is what I’m all about lately. Keeping stress levels low and happy levels high. :) Speaking of lowering your stress level, isn’t this palette simply gorgeous? I love these pale, chalky pastel tones because they have a hint of gray in them, which brings down their sweetness and makes them a bit more grown up. Throw in metallics like copper or gold, and deeper tones of orange (like pumpkin) or add some emerald green, and you can make pastels sophisticated and even a bit edgy.

Eucalyptus leaves by Karina Manarin.
VTWonen always has nice pastels and chalky accents in their rooms. The addition of copper is perfect!
What do you think, can you get behind this color palette?
