I know I’m not a very personal blogger. But today I’m finding the need to say a bit more than just a little text about the home I’m posting. The truth is that I’m having doubts. Doubts about this blog, the direction in which I want to go and if an interior blog is even what I want at all. I have this blog for almost 2 years now and I’ve been on Tumblr years longer. And in all honesty sometimes I think just f*ck it all! When I can’t find good inspiration, when it feels like I’m constantly repeating myself or when I’m getting hateful messages. Running a blog like this is a lot of work and sometimes I just get tired even thinking about it. I’m going to think about my blogging future in the upcoming weeks/months and hopefully I can get a clear view of what I want. But don’t worry until I make a decision I will keep posting beautiful homes 🙂 See below for a lovely home tour.
Grey, white and wood. To me those are the perfect ingredients for a calm home. I love the look of this apartment, I always like a grey & white colourscheme and the wooden floor and few wooden design pieces give the spaces some extra warmth. A nice home to start the weekend with. Have a nice one!
The stream of beautiful Scandinavian homes just doesn’t stop! This 1920s apartment in Gothenburg is again styled to perfection. With traditionally Scandinavian light colors, historic elements, cozy textures and wonderful William Morris wallpaper this family home is cozy and just simply stunning. What a dream to call a house like this your home.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a house quite like this one. This London home is designed by Sue Miller of Mad Cow Interiors with the idea of creating a boutique-style holiday retreat. With lots of dark colours, wonderful textures and amazing wallpaper the home definitely has a boutique feel. I really like the look of this home, it’s so unique and cozy and it just puts a smile to my face.
With winter on its way, it might be a good time to show a beautiful winter home. This mountain home in Norway – created by Slettvoll – overlooks the Norefjell and it’s exactly what you want in a winter home. Filled with cozy textures, exposed beams and fireplaces it’s the perfect spot to warm up during the cold months. Really I’m not sure if I would even leave this home at all. Make a cup of tea, put on some Bon Iver and enjoy the stunning landscape from your warm home!
Colour, plants and plenty of natural wooden elements. Sounds like a perfect combination right? Well, this London apartment has all of that. With a green living room, a pink study and a blue bedroom this apartment definitely doesn’t lack in colour. Only the kitchen and bathroom have stayed in white tones. I love how they stripped back the door and window frames to their natural wood tones, together with the plants this gives a nice natural element to the home. I could move into this apartment easily, and you can too because it’s for sale!
Writer Jonathan Safran Foer has listed his beautiful Boerum Hill townhouse. The townhouse was severely neglected by the previous owner but Jonathan has created an amazing light and spacious home. The 8(!!) bedroom home is spread out over 6 floors and is filled with timeless design. I love the book-filled living space which of course is not very strange for a writer’s home. If you’ve fallen in love you do need a lot of cash, because the house is for sale for $8.65 million.
I love to look at small apartments and see all the clever small space ideas the owners have come up with. In this small loft in Sweden there are definitely some smart storage ideas. In the kitchen the microwave is hidden in the bar table and the stairs to the loft bed have plenty of storage underneath (including a spot for the washingmachine). Besides the small space ideas I love this apartment for its warmth and unique design. The beautiful wooden floor and rustic elements such as the wooden kitchen and exposed brick wall give the little home such a cozy atmosphere. And as a finishing touch the apartment is filled with plants, so lovely!
One of my favourite interior stylists Emma Fischer has created another beautiful apartment. The apartment is only 35 square meters but it actually looks pretty spacious. The home is decorated in true Scandinavian style with lots of natural colours, good design pieces and clever small space ideas. I really like how she used the windowsill as a seating space for the kitchen table. A real lovely apartment.
I love all these homes in Amsterdam that I’m finding recently. Today I give you a peek in this family home that has been completely restored by Eline (founder of fashion label Amatør). The exposed brick wall, bistro-like kitchen and vintage furniture give the living space in this home a cool edge. A particular nice detail is in the bathroom where Eline put vintage mirrors together to make 1 big mirror wall. A great way to make a bathroom a bit different. If you have fallen in love with this home then you’re lucky because it’s for sale (oh.. and it’s situated in the coziest area of Amsterdam called The Jordaan with many café’s and shopping streets nearby).
