Neighborhood, sharing, networking, hope, recycling, helping, taking a more proactive and less reactive approach, collaborating, showing kindness, cutting back materially but stocking up spiritually, a shift happening in the world… These are some pretty dominant ideas and feelings circulating out there right now. That is why We Are In This Together, a limited edition print by Lorena Siminovich at Petit Collage is such a beautiful thought for 2009 to remember and put into practice as we deal with others.
Beautiful thought, Lorena!
Would you like to comment on something that has shown you lately that we’re all in this together? Think hard, anything that comes to mind? Personal experiences in how we can apply We Are In This Together in our life? I’d love to get your thoughts on this topic. It’s important to think about.

Oooh! How could I have missed this gem of a post over at El beso blog? You have to visit El beso to see all of the photos but I love this Berlin apartment owned by interior designer Alexander Stutz and movie producer Gerald Backhaus. They discovered this 1906 apartment in east Berlin and after loads of restoration they revealed its original art nouveau bones.
I love Berlin. Especially living like this in Berlin.

Let’s look at some beautiful photographs taken by Swedish talent Anna Kern. I love how she captures light and makes you feel like you’re in the space enjoying these cozy rooms. To view more of her work please visit her online portfolio. When I look at these rooms I am reminded that Sweden is truly the bomb diggity. Gorgeous women, amazing fashion sense, an excellent cafe culture, gorgeous cities, amazing coastline, beautiful accents, great design mags, friendly and supportive people, an off the hook health care system and the longest maternity leave ever… Heck, with the exception of their long, dark winters Sweden is near perfect.
These images make me want natural wood floors, fresh flowers, high ceilings, twinkle lights, lots of cream and pure white, and a corner Swedish ceramic stove. What do you love about this look? What don’t you like? Could you live like this? Do you live this this currently?
Soderberg Agentur in Stockholm represents and promotes leading stylists, photographers, and graphic artists worldwide. Based in Stockholm, I found them via Emma yesterday and I haven’t been able to take my eyes of the work featured on their website. Great Friday inspiration! Here’s but a taste. You’ll need to go to the Soderberg online portfolio for more.
Erik Lindvall (this photo makes me want to take my camera to a carnival in a BIG way).
Now I’m curious to learn more about Linn Olofsdotter because I REALLY like her work. A lot.
