I’ve been following Orlando Soria since watching him craft up cool DIY projects with Emily Henderson (who is also an inspiration) on her HGTV show some years ago. I was ecstatic when he announced that he would be moving to and renovating a condo in Silver Lake (that he graciously named “Orcondo”), and I was even more ecstatic (read: envious) to watch the space blossom into an extremely well-designed home.
Follow along with Orlando on his blog and Instagram (which is a treat to follow), and check out Emily Henderson’s blog where he frequently writes guests posts!

One mainstay in my daily inspiration regimen is to check out Stadshem, a Swedish real estate company that uses the talents of some spectacular stylists and photographers to design and shoot their spaces. I could seriously leave for Sweden today and cozy up in the corner of any one of these rooms until they kick me out for being a crazed American squatter. Stadshem only shows homes built before 1970, so all of their spaces have an authentic European charm.
If you want to be inspired to become a lunatic squatter like me, be sure to follow these guys on Instagram and Pinterest. They kill it every single time.
