One of the first images that I “pinned” to Pinterest was this illustration by Swedish artist Jonas Löfgren. It is Enid Coleslaw, the lead character portrayed by Thora Birch in the movie Ghost World. On Pinterest, I labeled it “my doppelgänger” because it (sort of) reminded me of myself with the black-rimmed glasses, and the chin-length bob parted on the side and held in place by a barrette. Here are other young female protagonists as interpreted by Jonas.

I know what you’re thinking: This doesn’t look like a typical Zara Home lookbook. But hey, I like it! It feels modern and vibrant, and the classic hues and patterns would be great additions to any white space. The best thing about this collection is that, while the clean, neutral look would appeal to women, it exudes a masculine feel as well. I bet Zara Home made a lot of guys happy this month.
My ideal house would have only a small area each for the living room, kitchen, dining room, bedroom, toilet and bath, and home office. But it would have a HUGE storage room for the clothes things that I hoard collect. Does this make sense? Anyway, if you’re like me who isn’t into big spaces and if you like light-colored wood, you might find inspiration for your home in the photos below. Happy weekend!
