Summertime and the livin is easy..
Just had a perfect summer day here in Oslo and feel like posting some colorful photos.
All photos via A beachy life, a feel good website with lovely lifestyle photos.

I found the above photos via Design Shimmer, one of my favorite interior blogs. I love the concept of light photos and light art. Would be a nice form of light therapy during the dark Norwegian winter.
The original source is Light boys,
a company that specializes in light pictures. You can send in your own polaroid and get your personalized light photo shipped back home or you can choose photos from top international photographers.
I visited an art gallery in Bali called YOU NEVER KAN TELL,
which also have some nice light artwork. The below photos are from this gallery. I regret that I did not buy one on my last visit and will definitely do on my next one. The gallery is located in Seminyak, close to The Oberoi

I love Bali! It has become my second home. A place I always have to go back to. In addition to sun, beach, surf, relaxation there are so many sources of inspiration. When I arrive I normally am tired from work, but when I leave my creativity has reached new levels and my bags are filled with interesting memories. The place is a mecca for handicraft, and you can get your own design ideas real in a couple of days. Each little village has their own handicraft tradition. Ubud is known for woodcarving, Celuk for gold and silver crafting and Batubulan for stone carving.
Place for interior shopping: Seminyak and Ubud.

I made these graphic slogans. This is how you do it:
1. Make your text in Adobe Illustrator. Mark the text and make the action «expand» (on the object menu)
2. Make a box.
3. Place the text over the box and mark both the text and the box. Go to the «window» menu, open «pathfinder» and use the»exclude» function.
Now you have a stencil.
4. Place the stencil over a photo and you have made your own piece of graphic art.
