My oh my. Am I (are we) green with envy today! This home of Scandinavian blogger Josefin Hååg is minimal design heaven. So clean and uncluttered! How is this possible? (though, she might have cleaned up quite a lot for this shoot). Have you ever sat down in your couch and all of the sudden be all like “shit…this place needs a somethin’ somethin’”? I do it all the time! And I never end up changing a thing, ha!
But when you see this kind of inspiration, you cannot help to feel a lustful attraction to home decor stores, including the shopping-hang-over-why-did-I-buy-this-crap guilt that comes afterwards.
Maybe if we move to some Scandinavian country they’ll give us this kind of apartment as part of our welcome package!?
PS. Her space doesn’t seem to be HUGE but she has it in such a way that looks super bright and spacious. We must learn her ways!

Shit’s about to get real intense in here. Put on your boxing gloves and get ready to throw your most creative kicks and punches – this isn’t summer camp anymore, this is the Styling Competition on instagram!
Yes, there’s such a thing. And even though it isn’t an official competition (it should be!), it’s sooo fun to watch, especially if you’re a styling geek like me (you totes are).
The ringleaders happen to be some of my favorite instagrammers and bloggers. Man, they are fierce!
I’m not sure who started it, but I’m going to assume it was design blogger Josefin Hååg? Who ever did it, BRAVOOOO, we are cheering for you. We should totally create official teams and have a styling olympic medal ceremony, yes?!
Follow the action on instagram and cheer for your fave by searching with the tag #StylingCompetition
Have you guys been doing good deeds? Did you light a few extra candles to the interior design gods? Well, whatever it is you did, it totally worked! My fellow interior lovers, our prayers have been answered! Guess what? Elle Sweden has launched an online image gallery that’s bursting at the seams with inspiration, all of your enjoyment and stylish masturbatory pleasure.
Basically we are about to spend 20584 more hours online gawking at all of the amazingness that this gallery is. On the other hand, this whole thing really makes me anxious about my place, which all of the sudden feels like a college-dorm-full-of-cheap-shit dump. Wait, no no.. relax…relax..it’s all good. FAACK! Can’t stop..
Anyways, I’m gonna go bite my nails and rock in the corner while I tell myself my apartment is beautiful as is. While I calm down, check out the gallery – and bring valium with you!
These photos by Cody Cobb speak to me in ways I cannot describe (I’m really sleepy).

This space is so clean it feels like heaven. Via
Hope you enjoy all the goodies! On a side note, this Mail app screwed with my mailbox and it’s so messy it looks like a troll cave. So, if you excuse me I’m gonna serve myself a double. Happy weekend!
Ay dios mio. I’m gonna..I’m gonna..Someone pass me my smelling salts! *sniff* ok, ok. I’m good. Shit, that was close.
Well, that’s what happens when you see people living in such amazing spaces like this heavenly pad in Hackney, London, inhabited by furniture designer Martino Gamper and artist Francis Upritchard. PURE BEAUTY! I mean, what else can you expect when you get two super talented creative minds under the same roof? Holmes on Homes? HA! GAG.
I absolutely love all the colour and textures in this house, it is far from being boring or over the top and, above all, it looks cozy! I bet that if we all lived in a place like this we would be pumped with energy and we’d wake up to go to work 100X faster…while that happens, let’s go back to our cubicles and make one freaking giant cup of coffee – I’ll meet you by the water cooler so we can bitch about the weather.
