Turn your leather handbag or wallet over to Turkish artist Erzen and he’ll transform it into a work of art. Literally. For someone who is always looking to customize and personalize fashion, I absolutely love this idea. And I can already think of several bags in my closet, that have been sleeping far too long in their dust bags, that are just jonesing for a revival. I’m officially inspired to send them away for a baroque floral treatment!
Artist Anna Valdez pulls items collected from her global travels and inspiration from her background in anthropology to lay the foundation for her still lifes. Photographs, family recipes, horticulture, books, hand crafted objects, rugs and personal mementos are layered into frame, resulting in beautiful, dynamic compositions that give a bit of insight into the artist herself. I love how her work just emanates joy and vibrancy but with a comforting sense of realness.
Who knew that my dream living space could be limited to 525 square feet? Ok, maybe if I were the only person living in it. Regardless, this tiny 1904 apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden is a beauty! I love that despite it’s small confines, the owner kept the original Nordic fireplace and added sizable accents, like lamps, to maintain its charm. The abundance of natural light, the use of crisp, neutral colors and plants, and most importantly, the clever layout, is just proof that sometimes, just sometimes, less is more.
There’s really nothing more spectacular than the ocean. Gabriel Scanu‘s stunning aerial shots of coastlines and sea waves just goes to show the impressive magnitude of the ocean landscape. The young Australian photographer travels from country to country, sending his drone into the sky to capture the earth’s bluest waters from above. Love.
