I was going to title this post "Sweden I have a crush on half your population because they are all so talented and everything is so gorgeous" but .... it was too long and our Swedish readers will write in and say that I am exaggerating (or perhaps not). Another stunning portfolio from another super talented photographer. I'm still in awe of how someone can point a camera and capture a dream. Martin Cederblad can.
Nina wrote us recently with a request: "I am finally undertaking a major renovation of our house, and am updating it to be more interesting, modern, and functional. As part of this, I want to change the shape of our boring arch-ways between rooms (living and hallway, and kitchen and hallway). Do you have any pictures like that? My house is otherwise rectangular and boring, and I want to do some different for those pass throughs." Most people don't bother to spruce up something as simple as an archway - love that you're choosing to be creative with yours Nina! Here's some inspiration for you.

Your Home & Garden
High style and high drama join forces to give a look that is high end. Australian interior designer Greg Natale has established himself as the leading exponent in this country of what one could call Hollywood Regency but with an Australian twist. What results, especially in this recent residential project, is the elevation of everyday living to something glamorous, something just a little more special, something with just a touch of the unexpected.
Things are a little more chaotic than usual here at Casa di Kim, as I have taken on another cat challenge and I have one of my strays locked in my upstairs bathroom waiting to go to the vets. (Fingers crossed, as his infected eyes may not be fixable). Anyway, the photography skills of Ngoc Minh Ngo are so fantastic there's not really much to say except WOW, and more seen in this earlier post here.
And this is one of my favourite photos ...ever. (and Jo's).
More Swedish love on Desire to Inspire? Are Kim and Jo secretly Swedish? No we just can't help being inspired by the look and feel, the vibe, the whole way of life that is embodied in Scandinavian design. Today it's time to introduce set and prop designer and stylist Tina Törnquist. Whether white and modern or floral and just a little shabby Tina can deliver the look. Love it!
