There’s a good chance that you’ve seen or heard of the ‘New Darlings’. Christina and Robert are husband and wife who share their married life (and home) on their blog New Darlings. I’ve shared pictures of their previous home but this year they’ve moved to a 1930s Tudor Home in Phoenix and luckily for us they share the proces of creating their dream home on their blog. Their home is decorated with mid-century and vintage design and it’s an absolute dream! Take a look for yourself and look at their instagram for more inspiration.
A few weeks ago I discovered Chelsea Anne on Instagram when I saw a picture of her amazing bedroom. It’s not just her bedroom that’s a bohemian haven, her entire home is styled to perfection. Her apartment is filled with plants, fabrics and artwork and it might be my new favourite home ever! The home is only 650sq. feet but it shows that just because you’re living small it doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.
This studio apartment styled by Josefin Hååg fits perfectly in the ‘slow living’ trend you see so much right now. The entire space is decorated is soft tones like grey, beige and natural materials. By not stuffing the space with many items the small home feels spacious, light and very comfortable. It’s a Scandinavian beauty (and it’s for sale through Fantastic Frank).
I’m back from holiday (which you may have noticed on my Instragram stories) so there’s a lot of catching up to do. I went to Sweden for a week so to stay in the Swedish mood I’ll start blogging again with a Swedish home. This home came up for sale yesterday and it’s absolutely stunning. The black & white colour palette combined with some vintage items, design pieces and lovely use of wallpaper make for a cozy home. Seeing homes like this only make me want to go back to Sweden!
This home of architect and interior designer Erick Millan is one of those homes that makes you happy just looking at it. His home in Mexico is packed with colour, plants, artwork and patterns. Plants are very important for Erick (after all they provide oxygen, generate harmony, reduce stress and prevent depression). By adding lots of plants and even a vertical garden he brings the outside in. This home is an absolutel wonderful jungalicious space. It’s fresh, it’s bright and it’s a super happy place.
IKEA’s collaboration with Danish brand HAY is much to look forward to. Last year IKEA announced the YPPERLIG collection and they have just released images of the full collection. The collection has 30 pieces ranging from furniture to acccessories all in a minimalistic Scandinavian style. The collection will hit the store in october 2017 and untill then check out the wonderful YPPERLIG collection below and see what you want to buy!
This apartment in Norway may be small but it’s absolutely packed with style. Home owner Lone Mariel has transformed this 52 square meter apartment into a unique home filled with vintage items and great colour combinations. Like so many Scandinavian homes the base is white, black and grey but Lone has added some wonderful colours to this monochrome colour scheme. Most notable is naturally the yellow sofa but there’s also brown, dusty pink, copper and the plants add some green touches. I really love this home and it’s no wonder that it’s in the running for Norway’s most beautiful home competition.
A home overlooking the sea, who doesn’t want that? Åsa and Peter had outgrown their old home after their second child came along. When their dream home came for sale (only 300 meters away) they immediately bought it. The 197 square meter home needed a lot of work but it was totally worth it. The home overlooks the sea and who can say that they use the beach as an extension to their garden? (I’m super jealous!!) The home is decorated with old & new items which compliment the original character of the home. It’s a beautiful Scandinavian family home.
When I’m searching for gorgeous homes to feature on my blog I’m often more interested in the small apartments. I always thinks it demonstrates that to make a house a home you don’t need big spaces and a lot of stuff. Small is good. This apartment in Stockholm is a good example of that. I love the shade of blue in the living room and bedroom (it reminds me a bit of this apartment). And it’s a nice surprise to see that lovely shade of pink in the hallway.
Located in Palm Beach, Sydney this spacious holiday home has been completely redesigned by architecture & interior design firm Alexander & Co. The plan was to create an open-planned ‘European style’ home that combines indoor and outdoor living. The home definitely feels bright and spacious and with the steelframe doors you can open them up to the waterfront garden. What a dream it must be to live so close to the ocean and have such an amazing view from your home.
