I see stars

There are few decorative pieces I find particularly pretty and fitting for Christmas and stars of all shapes and sizes happen to be among them. I particularly love paper stars. Here are few examples of how to decorate with stars.

Story North

Story North is a brand new web-shop run by my blog friend Samantha. Samantha is half-Icelandic but living in England where she works as a interior designer, that is when she´s not busy with Story North or posting some fabulous images on her blog, Love Nordic.  Samantha and I share VERY similar tastes and I practically crave every single item she has picked for Story North. Quite a lot of the products come from Scandinavia and few also from Iceland, from top designers Ingibjorg Hanna and Bility among others. I´m looking forward to see more design from Iceland on Story North.

Artist´s apartment in Stockholm

Artist and illustrator Mats Gustafson is the owner of this stunning apartment in Stockholm´s Södermalm area.
The vases on top of the tiled fireplace are the work of Modernist ceramists Axel Salto and Berndt Friberg among others. 
In the foyer, a light by Isamu Noguchi hangs above 19th-century furnitures. 
The painting on the wall above the bench is the work of Mats´s great-uncle, Birger Ljungquist. 
Swedish glassworks line the studio window which has a fantastic view over Stockholm´s harbour. 
The studio.
Antiques and contemporary design feature in the kitchen.
