A big thanks to Nina for sending us a link to a real estate listing for a home in Sweden, and it's not your average listing. The photos have been tweaked with an old-world treatment and the owners (I'm guessing) were asked to pose in several of the photos in costume. Nina thought the listing was lovely, and I did as well when I glanced through them briefly the first time. After a second and third look, my feelings changed towards CREEPY. It sort of reminds me of an old Hitchcock/horror movie where in the next shot all the participants will be sprawled in pools of blood. Am I nuts? What do you guys think?
Welcome to stylist Myrica Bergqvist's home. It may be a tiny apartment but it's packed full of style. How do these Swedes do it? Is it in their genes? Not only has Myrica created a beautiful small space home she is also responsible for the cool laser cut acrylic headboard and acrylic bowls.(You can see more of her range here.) It's a funky mix of retro pieces and scandi white with Myrica's personality shining through. My favourite spot? The kitchen/dining table ... and the bedroom nook. What's yours?

I need a little pick-me-up as I am quickly developing an end-of-season cold and I am already becoming miserable and whiney (my reward for spending the day with my niece Saturday and wiping her runny nose 180 times before it could land in her mouth. BLEH). Impeccable, star-quality photos from accomplished photographers is just the distraction I need. The following delightful photos are the work of London photographer Simon Eldon.
Nathalie, from France, sent along some photos of her home to share with our readers. She rents the home (located in a small village 50km south of Paris) and decorated on a budget, wanting to create a cozy space inside and out. In Nathalie's words: ...je crois que les associations de couleurs, de meubles et d'idées priment sur les moyens. I think it's charming and I am very envious of her beautiful garden (and her pooch is adorable!).
