That Scandinavians can style small apartments to perfection is no secret. This apartment in Stockholm is only 44 square meter but it appears spacious and cozy. The apartment is decorated in monochrome colors and filled with art (which always makes a space look cozy in my opinion). I especially love the peek-a-boo windows between the living room and bedroom which contributes to making the apartment appear larger. I think everythink about this apartment is perfect. Small = good!
If you happen to be in Amsterdam this week you’re in luck. This week the annual Enter The Loft pop-up is open for public again. The loft is an apartment in Amsterdam where a combination of design, art and craft culminate in one inspiring interior design experience. As always everything you see in The Loft can be bought. I’m sure in the upcoming weeks more pictures of The Loft will appear but for now you can look at these sneak peaks of this years The Loft. The pop-up apartment will be open from the 14th – 22nd of januari at Vijzelstraat 77-III. (If you want to see the lofts of previous years, just look below for links)
After a holiday in France, Menno and Tessa decided to design and built their own home. The couple mainly used natural materials and added a lot of storage, because with 3 children it’s nice to keep clutter behind doors. The light living space with open kitchen was a priority for the couple. Their trip to France inspired the wooden structure, concrete floor and pebbles in the bathroom. It’s a beautiful light family home with a Scandinavian touch.
Another IKEA post this week after I posted about Piet Hein Eek’s collection on tuesday. IKEA has just released the press images of the new items coming to the stores in february. From furniture to clever to storage solutions, there are some amazing new products coming to IKEA. I made a selection of my favorite items in this collection. The new items will be in stores in february.
Fosbury and Sons is a new co-working office space in Antwerp, Belgium. Located in the WATT-tower, close to the central station, this office space is the place for freelancers looking for an office away from home. The interior is designed by Going East, a design studio from Antwerp. The aim was to create a new and positive workspace that breaks asway from a conventional office space. There are several workareas and lounge places in Fosbury and Sons thereby creating a dynamic workspace for freelancers and companies looking for a meeting place.
Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek created a limited collection named JASSA for IKEA. A new collection by IKEA is always a reason to be happy but I must say the Jassa collection is truly amazing. Sustainability is very important for Piet Hein Eek which you can also see in the JASSA collection. The furniture and lamps are made of natural materials such as bamboo and rattan. Next to furniture and lamps the JASSA collection also includes baskets, ceramics and very colorful textiles. I love the combination of colorful fabrics and natural materials that Piet Hein Eek has used is this collection and I can’t wait to see it in stores. We only have to wait a little while because the JASSA collection will go on sale in march 2017.
The last post of my best of 2016 series is about workspaces/offices. Small or large I posted some very inspiring workspaces this year and these are my favourites.

The bathroom is often overlooked but I have posted some real stunners the past year. Here are my favourite bathrooms of 2016. (top picture: attic bathroom)
The kitchen is usually called the heart of the home, so it better be good looking. There were a lot of beautiful kitchens this year but I had to make a selection so these are my favourite kitchens of 2016. (top picture: stunning kitchen in a music-filled home)
