Rarely, do I use other people's photography on my blog. But there are so many wonderful, creative, inspiring artists out there that I cannot help but share a few of my favorites. Especially those depicting vintage, old, antique filled interiors: A visual feast of inspiration.
I have added the links to the photographer's blogs listed below each photo or the series of photo by the same photographer.
Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Femine, ton sur ton (same neutral color theme).
Photo source: Ditte Isager Photographer, born and raised in Copenhagen Denmark. Shooting interiors, personalities, lifestyle and travel. The style is simple nordic. Working with contrast in materials, light, color and objects. Inspiration comes from the light in the Dutch masters, storytelling and effects from motion pictures and the style.
Photo source: Photo me & Alice, Mostly white, full of light. Simply stated objects creating a carefree still life. 19th century confiture jars with a silver dome hanging on the wall. Me & Alice is a blog you could live on for days at a time.
Chic chandeliers hanging above, shedding a different sort or light, on the convent style table and benches below.
Photo source: Cote Bastide. (top three photos) Luckily, and I mean luckily, I live close to two of Cote Bastide main shops, one in Aix en Provence and the other in Lourmarin. A must see. Again ton sur ton color theme, using natural elements with a mixture of antiques and their own beautifully reproduced items. Cote Bastides style is like a convent with a regard towards elegance. Holy and pure.

Hemp covered modern cut sofa, sits in front of a mid century, old style coffee table. The mixutred of varied antiques and old things work together creating a harmony that is hard to do when using various period pieces.
