I don’t hide my affection for the Scandinavian aesthetic and you will find the curators I choose often have that bent. I love the absence of color and the embracing of both graphic black & white and the soothing properties of white on its on and moody blacks, the soft neutrals and the love of natural textural elements (have you seen how many antlers are part of a Scandinavian bloggers homes?)  Also, there’s a love of typography and I could go on and on. I am so grateful for the internet that it has made it even more accessible to me (and you). Today, I wanted to introduce you to Netherlands based Oui Oui Studio, there are too many good boards to list here, but some of my faves are I heart neutrals and soft tonesI heart silver, I heart hats (such a good board!) and I heart DIY, some very chic ideas to inspire you.  Oui Oui Studio also has a blog that you may want to peruse, but if you can’t bear to visit another blog, do visit her boards and start re-pinning!

Today, I am going to get out of the apartment for a couple of hours and go on a mini field trip with Michelle of Creatocrat (my co-professor in Souvenir Foto School + a great curator). I am so happy to be able to get out and do a little exploring, but even more excited to finally be able to get out and shoot. I have barely picked up my camera in the last 5 months and I am feeling that it may not be like riding a bike and that I have forgotten how to use my camera! I don’t have a plan of what it is that I will be shooting, I am just going to allow myself to take in the adventure and try not to be too hard on myself.  If you are feeling a little stuck with your own photography inspiration Ez has posted some great prompts that should inspire you to  get out and start shooting!

    1. Susan yes, I love your style, that nursery of yours is pure perfection! It hit the right notes of soft, textural, gender neutral and still feeling warm and inviting, such a hard thing to do when you are working in such a subtle palette. I have it high on my mind one day for my own nursery inspiration;)

  1. Yippee!! Can’t wait! I’m willing to bet you’ll be so happy to be shooting again that every shot you take will be gorgeous!

    Oui Oui Studios = lovely. I must set aside some time for re-pinning!

    1. Moira, you are correct on that, I did over-do it yesterday and paid the consequences, but it was worth it while it was happening, but lesson learned, can’t go from 0-6o need to work up to it;)
