It’s only Monday and I’m already daydreaming about this country-meets-urban NYC rooftop apartment. It is absolute perfection with the colors, rustic outdoor living spaces, transparent rooms and foliage galore. This reminds me a bit of the greenhouse apartment in Greencard, no?
I need a Nest Rest in my life. How about you?
The minute I came across Swedish artist Tove Mauritzson‘s quirky and colorful paintings, I instantly fell in love. Each piece is eclectic, outrageous, and downright WTFabulous. And I absolutely love that her work blends in so perfectly to the decor of her home in Sweden, making them almost 3 dimensional and so alive! Honestly inspired!

Inspired by Victorian chandeliers and bike culture, artist Carolina Fontoura Alzaga uses old bike chain, rims and spokes to create incredible, one-of-a-kind steampunk chandeliers. I think it goes without saying that I want one.

These animal-friendly and recyclable cardboard trophies from Virginia based Cardboard Safari are amazing. Each of the safari animal trophies come in either brown or white, and personalizing them is encouraged! I’d like to paint an elephant purple, how about you?

Honestly, after the Oscars last Sunday, are you just as obsessed with lilac and lavender as I am?! I’m currently drawn to these hues like a moth to a flame. How amazing would it be to have a room in your home painted in either of these colors? Our best friend Sara has had the walls of her bedroom painted lavender, carpet the color of aubergine, and accents in all shades of lilac for as long as I can remember. And it’s perfection.
