HOME TOUR || How a Scandi fashion stylist lives

The Scandinavians are known for their great sense of style and this next apartment is no exception. Here is a peek into the home of Stockholm based fashion stylist Gorjan Lauseger. A typical Scandi space: white basis, cool decor items, but not to much stuff and a few classic design furniture pieces like what looks to me like the Wassily leather and chromed chairs. The bright yellow poster of the American road movie classic Easy Rider is a real eye catcher. And why aren't there ever any curtains in Scandinavian homes? What is up with that?

MOCCA & ME QUICK LIST || Week 07/2015

Time for another quick list of fun and interesting links and some eye candy. Hope you're having a fab week!

Eye candy

This room proves that it really is okay to be bold and fill your entire wall with all kinds of different art, it can work. And I love the idea of using different small (side)tables instead of the traditional coffee table. I am especially in love with the little wooden table in the picture.

Home tour
Check out this Australian home of Mark and Mariana on AT, the creative couple behind graphic art and design studio M2Matiz. By the way, I think Mariana's short gray hair is very cool!

Studio tours
I love to read about creative people, their work and creative process and also to see their workspace. So imagine my joy when I found exactly that on the website of Cool Hunting.The rest of the website is worth your time as well: lots of posts about the latest in design, tech, culture, art and travel.

For graphic design lovers 
If you're like me and you love graphic art and and design you will love Baubauhaus.

Photography tip
The tremendous improvement of image quality on our smart phones has made photography more accessible and also made it possible to take stunning pictures with your phone. See for yourself: iPhone photography awards winners 2014.

Sound bites
No musical treat this time but instead a super inspiring talk by Tina Roth Eisenberg - succesful entrepreneur and blogger at SwissMissIn this talk she shares her 5 rules for success.

P.s. Like Mocca & Me on Facebook or follow on Pintrest or Instagram.
