Viner studio | Sunday Morning Art

Oooohhh… Hello Ladies!

designjoyblog_viner studio_AvenueRx(medres)Brooklyn based painter Jonathan Viner‘s works primarily with oils to create these beauties. Painted with perfect skill, these ladies are young, they are beautiful and they are cool. What more could you want to look at really?

But ladies, don’t worry. Viner has got something for everyone! Though not as lush and glamorous as his female muses, his man do have a quiet coolness about them that we could even call sexy… I mean, who doesn’t like a guy with a kitty or, on the more surreal side, a hipster standing on a sofa with a yellow painting? Excellent!

Limited edition prints are available on the artist’s online shop.

Happy Sunday!

Guest Post | Danish Street Art by Interiorwise

Hi, ‘Design Joy’ readers, I’m Daniélle and the author of the blog Interiorwise, where I write about my obsession with interior, DIY and places that inspires me in my decoration – I decorate to the level where a room makes me feel more happy, more relaxed and even more curious!

I’m truly honored to be guest blogging for Julia today, who I sincerely thank for allowing me the way into the world of ‘Design Joy’ and you! I live in Copenhagen and in these days the city is “suffering” great under constructions and thats our luck! Because the transformation of the city has brought us even more creativity and art to explore in the streets! And, that’s what I´d like to share with you!

Monkey

 This little monkey means so much to me! I actually don’t know whats in there but for many years I’ve passed by the monkey every morning and it just makes me smile… it actually looks you straight into the eyes 😉

Though I am a Scandinavian Ive ditched the minimalistic Scandi look! I am a huge fan of challenging and blurring boundaries, and I love to place things in a room or a spot, where you wouldn´t normally find or expect them to be! To me, that’s when interior design turns into interesting eye candy!

These photos are from Vesterbro the very heart of hipsters in Copenhagen!

Street Art! It’s in the name, it belongs in the street, but why? When you drag it inside my experiences are that its imaginative and raw universe carries such a contrast to the “home” that it adds a cool, dynamic and personal surprise.

These photos are taken in an abandoned hall where creativity has no limits!!

The rebellious nature of street art gives me the feeling that the city actually belongs to all of us. And if you go for a walk in Copenhagen or a lot of other places – by taking a closer look at the neighborhoods where street art thrives, thats often where I see the largest number of people actively using the street. In Copenhagen, this is where people relax and meet, how is it at yours!:) I think it describes the effect that street art adds to our homes precisely and nicely! SO, let them kids play – it’s no longer forbidden to draw on the walls, OR… ? 😉

If this doesn’t make you wanna go ballistic on your walls then I hope at least these Copenhagen street photos will inspire you to forget all about do’s and dont’s interiorwise and to look for inspiration anywhere, … that’s when interior design becomes interesting and personal 😉

My journey on Interiorwise is to hunt for stuff that you might not look after yourself and I do my best to avoid mainstream and trends. I believe that style hasn’t got anything to do with money – if it talks to me I’ve succeeded!

ALL THE BEST to all of you and a special thank to Julia for letting me guest your blog! ❤
