Blissful Corners: Modern Portraits

February 22, 2017


it seems as if everywhere i turn i am faced with beautiful interiors dressed up in beautiful vintage portraits. i, of course, love a gorgeous vintage portrait as much as the next girl but lately i feel as if the new is outshining the old. i am completely enamored with the modern portraits i have been encountering on pinterest and etsy as of late. which is why i had to dedicate this blissful corners post to a few of the artists i am admiring at the moment…i am humbled, to say the least.

i also thought it important to share a few gorgeous corners decked out in the new standard for portraits.

My Happy Place: A Nantes Loft

February 21, 2017

i have fantasies about types of homes we have yet to reside in. as a young girl i have vivid memories of longing to life in a big old loft one day…preferably surrounded by concrete and city parks. i have also made it known on bliss that i love the idea of moving into an older building that actually had no intention of becoming a home: a church, school, factory, etc.

this home checks both boxes perfectly. this loft was once a tannery in the city of nantes, france. i love how it remains rustic, yet is completely modern. these walls also house some of the most amazing artwork i have seen…i love the gallery walls alongside the solo statement pieces.

A Home Designed by Design Therapy

February 16, 2017

 speaking of beautiful scandinavian design, this home designed by design therapy is truly perfect. design therapy is an interior design agency based in stockholm. design therapy believes that interior design is “holistic experience”; the design of a space basically tells the story of the people who reside or work there. design therapy gets to know their clients’ backgrounds, values and travel destinations…eliminating a design formula or a space that is void of personality.

needless to say, i am a fan.
