{time-worn nostalgia}

There is a quiet, time-worn nostalgia about the home of Norwegian photographer Trine Thorsen, the kind that evolves from years of travel and layers of memories from far-off places . . .

There is something so real and authentic about having some time worn beauty amidst the glamor!

i really love the idea of this place. whenever i move to a new place, i tend to just bring the necessities and then let the look evolve as life happens there -- ticket stubs, postcards, photographs. If i really like some things from my former place, I'll frame them all together.

I always enjoy your choices - they are so beautiful and inspiring. That desktop inspires me to go and tidy mine. (But not right now). Perhaps I need a big clock like she has above her desk, something that can just tick away while I procrastinate. And then maybe an alarm can go off, or something. That will be cool.

your words alone here paint such an ambiance... they say "a picture paints a thousand words", but here not the case! lovely images, though, too.
A nice bedtime reverie, thank you, goodnight:)

What a wonderful work space. I can't help but be a little in awe.

And on a different note, I realize that most photogs dress the set before a shoot, but what does one do with all these damned cords? My laptop is connected to the printer, the modem (although it's wireless I sacrifice speed when unplugged), the power strip, the speakers... it's a mess. Ideas?

Honestly, when I'm old and retired and have grandkids running around, I hope my home is filled with such fantastic memories. This is so cool.

Such a lovely, calm workspace. Has inspired me to stick up some of my favourite photos, tear outs around my desk! Puts my mess of a workspace to shame!

Jessie – love the idea of framing things that you love and keepsakes all together.

Samantha Honey & Colette Rose – thank you.

Easy and Elegant – wish I could offer some advice on hiding those unsightly cords, but there is a jumble at my pedicured toes as we speak . . . Have seen various covers and ties as options, but nothing that really and truly makes sense of the mass of wires . . . Perhaps a good topic for a follow-up post?

Hope everyone is having a beautiful week so far. Always find it so inspiring to look at the workspaces of others, especially when they are filled with personal artifacts, such as this one.
