I have been in love with this house since it came out in Architectural Digest 5 or so years ago in a September issue. I have brought it to every house I have moved to, which has been more than one a year and it respectably sits among my design books. European interiors have always appealed to me most, I don’t know if it is my Polish background or maybe my little beach house of a shack I spent my summers in, with only oil lamps to light the night, but either way I am incredibly draw to these cozy European designs.
Axel Vervoordt is a well respected Belgian designer with the simple design philosophy: “Make people happy; make them discover things in themselves; make them feel at home and love their house.”

Marisol Spoon, found on Etsy, creates some lovely oil paintings. The style is enchanting and mystical with elements of nature and classical tails with a vintage feel. The art is printed on premium matte paper with archival ink.

There is something about this I really like, but I don’t exactly know the words for it; I think it’s strangeness and expressionless face just intrigues. As some of you may know by now, I like things that make you stop and look and this certainly does.
Apart from the art, I also love the raw wood floors and the use of indigo (one of my favorite colors).

Empty frames are a great substitute for buying art. All you need is a collection of frames, whichever style you prefer and then hang them in an artful way. You can find frames doing some thrift store wondering. Don’t turn your head if it is not a prefered color, if the frame itself is of quality, you can spray paint them to make a mismatched bunch more cohesive. You can make this wall of empty frames as large or small as you like. For positioning, look at all the frames as a whole and make the center at eye level.
