♥♥♥ I think we all sometimes wonder if life is taking us in the right direction. Moving with my family back HOME to Iceland has been healthy for us all. All my boys are very happy, so happy that people talk about it and I think it is doing so much for them to be so close to all our relatives. This country takes such good care of us and I have to say I love it with all my heart, it brings back this amazing sparkle in our eyes, I sometimes wonder where that sparkle comes from. It might be the air, the healthy food, the amazing water, the happy people or simply just the very special bright natural light, not to mention the northern lights?
Still there is something inside me that drives me to take off every now and then and move to other countries. Not sure what it is but it might be the challenge to learn and get to know, smell and get the feeling of what life is like somewhere else. At the age of 17 to be in Australia for a year living with some total strangers, people that hade chosen me to become a part of their family and not understanding a word they said for a few days – I loved it.
Anyway look at those amazing images. Seeing something like this drives me and makes me even hungrier for more. I love the black colour of the building and the beauty of the simplicity. A space that makes me very relaxed and brings out all my best qualities just by looking at it.

Apartment Therapy viaA 3,700 sq foot loft in Hell’s Kitchen is turned into a wondrous space with DIY ingenuity and thirft finds. The main room, shown here, is part gallery, part work space. Love the paint speckles on the scored concrete floor, it reminds us that magical creativity is afoot.

An artist with three children inhabits this modern space in Mexico City. The work of architect Garduño Arquitectos, the concrete structure houses an artist space with minimal furnishings but uber class.
Be Street viaWorn brick and the most wonderful sunlight streaming in from multiple windows casts a warm glow on this studio. What would you create in this dreamy artist space? A blank canvas awaits…
When not pouring her dreams into her art, the resident artist of this studio dreams away the night in a bed fit for a princess. Yards of draped and gathered fabric make the bed appear as if it is floating. An inspired bedroom design.
Loft Life viaSoaring ceilings, sloping walls and an enormous eyebrow window give this loft loads of personality. The seemingly endless creative space makes us green with envy.
Loft Life viaOnce a stable, this Brussels studio is now the live-in work space of photographer Ocvirk Kus Danica. What an amazing space, especially the swing in the dining area.
Wish Studio viaSara Lechner’s studio inspires from its beamed and vaulted ceiling to the rough hewn floor. Several work tables just beg to host creative endeavors, while slipcovered sofas beckon one to stop for tea. Inspire your own decorating ideas?
Jetson Green viaImagine creating works of art in an ivy-covered garden studio! Surely the interior is just as charming.
