BEDROOMS: a dreamy canopy bed by interior designer Jackye Lanham

A fabulously subdued color palette deserves a dreamy canopy bed. Love this elegant and dreamy canopy bed by interior designer Jackye Lanham. She chose an iron canopy bed to balance the soft elegance of the space. What a beauty! I wrote earlier more blogs about canopy beds: blog 1blog 2blog 3 and blog 4.

Furniture Design: A collectionist cabinet by Bartoli Design for Laura Meroni

Bartoli Design recently created an unusual piece of furniture for Laura Meroni, a luxury Italian furniture company. It's a collectionist cabinet inspired by vintage secretary desks. It lives up to its name, with the inside divided into 26 different compartments and having eight drawers, perfect for any extensive collector. The exterior features a simple shape crafted in Siberian Ash wood with sculptural brass handles. It can be mounted on the wall or stand alone on sleek brass rods. What a beautiful and elegant design!

ART: COLORFUL ABSTRACT ART BY DUTCH ARTIST ARIE KONING

While surfing earlier on internet I saw these beautiful, colorful abstract paintings from the Dutch artist Arie Koning. Arie Koning captures the essence of flowers. He invites you to experience the joy and energy in the deepest heart of the flower, as expressed in the light and colors of his colorful paintings. This particularly gives expression to the deepest core of flower, the nature, the soul of the flower.
Abstracte bloemenschilderijen
Professioneel kunstschilder Arie Koning legt in zijn abstracte schilderijen een wereld vast achter de bloemvormen. Binnen de kunststromingen is ‘abstract’ een richting binnen de moderne kunst waarin niet wordt geprobeerd om objecten uit de natuurlijke wereld exact weer te geven. De abstracte schilderijen van hedendaags kunstschilder Arie Koning onderscheiden zich door de warme kleuren, de diepte, de vreugde en het licht.
For more inspiration, see the enclosed links below.
