Love this custom design for a Girl’s Bedroom. A huge DIY project for Heidi (of knaehojkarse.blogspot.com ) and her husband, it is their solution for getting the most out of a small space. I really like this concept, although with my top-heavy girls the steps would make me a little nervous. Their blog says it is not quite finished, but it is looking great so far!

Found these decoupaged vintage globes from ImagineNations a while ago, and intending to do one of my own. I had forgotten until last weekend, when I found a great selection of vintage globes at a local antique mall. Another possibility is coating one in a layer of chalkboard paint, to create an interesting canvas for my daughter to doodle on and display in her room.

A lot of newer products are reflecting the trend toward a handmade aesthetic by using natural finishes, exposing hardware or stitching, and combining interesting patterns. In fact it seems like everywhere you look bold bright patterns and patchwork are cropping up. While I love finding things like this second hand, these new chairs (and a side table) from Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, are some of my recent favorites.
Love this idea for a simple and elegant bicycle wine rack from oopsmark.
Another beautiful home from Malmö Sweden, this recently renovated apartment was originally built in the 1890′s. The large windows keep the interior bright and open, a feeling complemented by the parquet floors and white walls. I especially love the wall mounted toilette and sink in the restroom. It looks great and keeps that small space from feeling cramped. If you are interested, this home is actually for sale.

I have really been enjoying the work of Dolan Geiman lately. Found thanks to a post by Bloesem, I immediately loved the strong, warm, eclectic feel. Using handmade and eco-friedly techniques, Dolan creates paintings, collages, and box prints on wood. All available for purchase through his website.
