Do you read Apartment Therapy and follow their home tours? I saved this image today because I love it so… it’s from the AT Chicago site, Melissa & Henry’s Small Live/Work Home Tour, and I wanted to highlight it because it’s a funky space with lots of personality. I especially love this cozy nook…
This space belongs to Melissa Agostino and Henry Tyminski of Sali Tabacchi in Toronto. This makes me want that little vintage botanical chart on the wall now… I love the pink tones combined with the wood, don’t you? And all the books and that pretty Fire Blanket box, which looks vintage, is nice too.
Do you have a cozy nook like this in your home where you have books, a place to read them, etc.? I think we all need our little corners, don’t you?

Skarp Agent was founded in 1999 by Johanna Strinnvik and Andrea Hasselrot and is currently one of the best agents in Sweden working exclusively with top tier photographers who cover fashion, beauty and lifestyle, still life, portraiture, food and interiors. One of these photographers is Stellan Herner and since I’m enjoying Herner’s work today I thought I should share the love with you while I’m at it. :)
Isn’t the interior of this London-based travel agency the best? I can imagine the owner of some eclectic shop turning to her assistant the day that ostrich sold saying, “Gosh Marge, did you ever think we’d sell that thing?” — What a creative interior designer behind this project, huh!? Love it. And I love the photography of Stellan Herner – gorgeous!

I think I’ll share another Hamburg-based photographer with you today, this time it is Stefan Thurmann who is also an established name in Germany best known for his interiors photography. I have a tear sheet from Living At Home taken from his portfolio that happens to have one of my favorite photos on it showing a pear gently resting on a flower used as a place setting. See it there below? I’ve always loved it and have wanted to set something similar up the next time I have friends over for brunch. It’s a simple yet beautiful idea don’t you think? I believe it has powered sugar on top? Such a lovely touch.
I want that bicycle, isn’t it pretty? And the chairs are great. I also love those big windows. There’s nothing like big windows, am I right?
I’m running out to do a pre-move errand but I’ll be back later today with some more goodies for you to drool over. :)

Today the photography of talented Olaf Szczepaniak in Hamburg has my attention — I found him through the pages of German interiors magazine Living At Home. He’s not known here in America which is even more reason to visit his online portfolio today – he’s fresh and from what I can tell he’s not been blogged before now. There’s always a first time… And what an enjoyable first experience it is to explore his many galleries online – from food to interiors, outdoors and more. The spaces that he photographs are simply gorgeous and I love his still life work – his food shots make me hungry which is the sign of a great food stylist and photographer, right!?
When I look at his work seeing the world through his lens, I see the cozy lovely northern Germany that I’ve grown to love so much. The coast, the open fields, the pretty brick homes… the candles in the windows, these thoughts and images make me so much more excited about my relocation there in less than a month. I can’t wait!
