If you want to pimp out your IKEA cabinets, Superfront is definitely THE place to get started. Superfront gives you the ability to create high quality furniture using an IKEA base combined with their collection of 9 fronts, 8 handles, 8 legs — all in 12 different colours. They make their parts for existing IKEA cabinet bases so if you want to freshen up your existing IKEA kitchen, sideboard or bathroom cabinet now you can! These products are not mass-produced in some faraway land – they are made right in Småland and Dalarna, Sweden. I love the leather handles and the fun legs – this is GREAT.
I first spotted this on the German blog, raumfeurzwei. What do you think, would you use Superfront? I totally would!
I came across a stunner of a bohemian-style loft today in Spain and couldn’t peel myself away from examining the many details. This place is in Madrid and is totally unreal – so imaginative, I’ve never seen anything like it. And it’s very neutral and industrial with loads of vintage elements, wow! It’s the space of interiors photographer Manolo Yllera and doubles as his light studio. Interesting, right!?
I found this on an equally creative Spanish blog called Virlova Style.What do you think? Spot any details you’d like to try at home? I love the wooden white screen above with the handpainted blossoms – great idea for a room divider.
I also love all of his Berber carpets from Morocco – those Beni Ouarain rugs have been showing up everywhere in the most stylish homes – have you noticed the Beni Ouarain trend too? I noticed it back in 2011 but wow, it’s grown to be quite a hit ever since.

Have you ever been on Pinterest (follow me here!) when, almost suddenly, a bunch of your contacts start pinning the same image, but they aren’t even following each other?!? What??! You click and click and cannot figure out how or what inspired the massive click-a-thon because it couldn’t possibly be chance… Well, whatever the cause, this happened to me today and though I have no clue what inspired the sudden click fest, I decided to write about the person behind the photo on my blog to shout out their work so they don’t get lost on Pinterest. Today, I’m highlighting Dutch freelance stylist, Kim Timmerman. See what inspires you about her work below – anything stand out?
If you missed it, scroll back up and pay particular attention to how she uses plates in her work – on walls, tables, as almost a sort of mood board — really nice! I also like the stitched paper plates in the heart motif (too cute – you could hang a bunch of these on the wall for your next anniversary party!). The white desk (I have the exact same desk) on the concrete floor with the plant chart above it and the wooden industrial stool caught my eye too.
Kim is available for hire – from concept to production and styling, she’s got your covered. You can contact here via her website here: Contact.
Lovely, inspiring work, Kim!

Do you love the look of old and new? I like a good mix because I think it adds personality to a room so when I heard from Amsterdam-based photo magicians, ROXandSAN, I quickly thought to share what they do because their work brings a magical old world touch to any room. I find their work heartfelt and inspirational – it spoke to me because I find old black and white photos so inspirational but often, they’re too small to really enjoy as art.
In a nutshell, ROXandSAN creates vintage portraits by hand based on analogical or digital pictures. They transform those images into works of art through a print method called lithography (learn more about it here). The end result is a unique creation that would be a gorgeous to add to any room in the home.
You have to check out their process in action by watching their video here, great stuff!
