Stylist Eva Lindh: christmas inspiration

This traditional scandinavian christmas styling by Swedish stylist Eva Lindh make me think of my childhood home at christmas time. Red, green and wood tones, that were our christmas colors.
Do you have some certain christmas colors you come back to every year?

Trine Thorsen: winter inspiration

We have wonderful winter weather, it's so cold, -10 °C, really something for Berlin. And there is still some snow on the ground. The Germans aren't really used to this kind of weather, at least here in the city. But I enjoy it. I found these suitable winter images in Trine Thorsen's inspiring portfolio. You can find a frost set and some serene white interiors. Enjoy!

Calendar: Lena Corwin + Caitlin Mociun

I hope you are well and have a good time preparing for christmas. I'm buying and making the last presents, still decorating a little and looking forward to meet all my family on christmas.
This calendar by Lena Corwin and Caitlin Mociun would have been a great addition to my little calendar round-up. It's a sreen printed poster inspired by imagery of the four elements: fire, earth, air and water. Available in Lena Corwin's webshop. I really like the colors and the shapes in it.

Winter mood by photographer Morten Holtum

I'm sorry for my absence lately. These are just some busy days and sometimes it's hard to include blogging into my daily routine. Anyway, now I'm back to share these images by Danish photographer Morten Holtum with you. Aren't they beautiful? They make me want to curl up at a fire place on a cold winter evening.
Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my last post! All of them made me feel so good. I'm so happy you enjoy reading Visual Notes. It means a lot to me.
