Born in France and raised in London, stylist Marietta Beasley’s current loft in Atlanta, Georgia blends European style with New York ’70s art colony cool — when she acquired her space 15 years ago she was the first person to get a certificate of occupancy in the downtown area. Now it’s both home and studio, with an every changing collection of inspirating pieces from all over the world.

Interior designer, blogger, stylist and owner of the online store Moltaz Design, Henrick Eriksson has applied his design philosophy to his lovely summer home, a cottage dating from 1780. When he purchased it, its charming rough log walls and old oak floors were — unbelievably — hidden behind plastic wallpaper and cork tiles respectively. Henrick also tackled low ceilings, lack of insulation and removed the gypsum plaster from the walls, taking them back to their original condition. Renovating the house bit by bit made it manageable within his busy work schedule — and the resulting style of the cottage is described by Henrick as ‘New England with industrial touches’. As he works with colour all day, Henrick deliberately chose a restful and neutral palette for his own space, concentrating on textures, form and materials to keep it lively and interesting.
Lovely. More here on Bonytt.

Love the warm, industrial modern look of J. Crew menswear director Frank Muytjens’s upstate New York weekend home — and the fact that he has no internet or other technological distractions while he’s there, too. Smart man.
Inspired to make as much of the wonderful space and light in their lovely Copenhagen apartment, Kristina and Arash decided to think outside the box and go up, creating a stepped living/sleep space that also offers huge amounts of storage. Arash, an architect, designed the furniture with Kristina, which he then built it himself. The use of oversized pieces throughout continues the play with scale — it’s a fun and interactive space to live in, and perfect for their little boy to explore, too. Morehere on Bolig Magasinet.

Daybeds are beautiful no matter the setting. Whether French or Italian the daybed is timeless. Add a mix of pillows in coordinating textiles. Pull it up to a dining table for instant seating or float it in a room. The daybed is versatile, fun, and adds a punch of creativity to any space. Try one!
I love the change of seasons. And I love the beginning of autumn. Most certainly when it’s a golden and warm autumn with crisp nights. Then the nature prinks itself up with the most charming colours – I think of yellow, red, orange, purple, brown, forest green. I took this as a starting point for today’s ‘5 Happy Inspirations’ that have one thing in common – autumn hues.
1. You love tiles and you love plaids? How about a combination – these tiles come in plaid or gingham patterns and wonderful colours. Seen on New Ravenna.
2. Love this XL glass bottles in warm autumn hues. Found them on the fab and super cute webshop Pierrot & Coco.
3. Two weeks ago Zara Home opened its first store in Munich. And this chunky knit and happily coloured throw will make its way into my apartment soon!
4. The best treat for your next DIY project – the environmentally responsible paint range by Mini Moderns!
5. My friend and illustrator Tanja added a super happy autumn idea to her home by transforming hazelnuts into cute little bears. So adorable!
