I love old homes, I love the country side and I love beautiful interiors. Yeabridge House in Somerset combines all these things. The 18th-century property belongs to Mark Homewood and it’s filled with beautiful vintage furniture, cozy sitting spaces and moody colours. I really love this home and I think it’s a nice change here on Gravity Home compared to all the bright Scandinavian homes.
A bit of luxury on this dreary tuesday. At least it’s dreary where I live, I’ve seen beautiful snowy pictures of Stockholm where this apartment is located. The building dates back to 1907 but the apartment was completely renovated in 2015 and has now a luxurious touch. I always like attic apartments, they look so cozy and this one also looks incredibly chic!
A very lovely home tour today! This bright industrial farmhouse in The Netherlands belongs to Jellina & Jan. They’re still working on the renovation of the monumental property but already the home looks absolutely wonderful. The amazing exposed beams are seen thoughout the house and I really love the industrial elements they’ve added to the home. This in combination with the vintage items and many plants creates a beautiful light family home. If you want to see more of this home and of the ongoing renovation just take a look at Jellina’s blog for more pictures of her beautiful home.
Ferm LIVING has created an amazing and colorful new showroom. And it’s not just a showroom but they decorated an apartment in central Copenhagen and it’s filled with their products (from lighting to pillows and furniture). I often hear that Scandinavian homes are ‘too white and boring’ but this beauty is wonderfully colourful with pink and green rooms. I could easily live in an apartment that looks as stunning as this one.
Scandinavian studio apartments always make me happy. This one from Entrance Mäkleri is definitely very lovely. With the traditional wooden floor and white walls this apartment gets some nice colour touches in the blue sofa and dusty pink bedding. Combine this with nice wooden items and a big mirror to give the illusion of some extra space and you’ll end up with a great looking apartment.
There are 2 options when you’re living in a small home but your family is growing. Option 1 is to move to a bigger house, option 2 is to hire an architect and transform your house into a space that’s the right size for your family. The owners of this row house in Brooklyn loved their neighbourhood and chose option 2. They hired Office of Architecture to transform their narrow house into a cozy family home. They added 2 levels to the house to create a new master suite on the top floor and a mud room in the basement. In this house you see all kinds of clever small space ideas and it really feels like a good size home where you can comfortably live with your family.
Would you dare to paint your home only in dark colours? Mette Holbæk did exactly that in her Copenhagen home and I think it’s absolutely fabulous. Her entire home is painted in dark grey & blue tones which gives the home a dramatic touch but also a very cozy feeling. I’m certainly loving this look, what about you?
A big contrast in this Scandinavian apartment. While the living space is kept white (with a stunning exposed brick wall) the bedroom is the complete opposite. Painted in a wonderful dark grey shade (Farrow and Ball – Down pipe modern emulsion), the small bedroom has a super cozy feel. I also love how they created a hallway by using a half high wall to seperate the entryway from the rest of the living room. Without losing the light from the huge window.
This home of Marie-Louise Sjögren is exactly the opposite of what you might expect from a Scandinavian home. You’ll find no minimalism and monochrome colours in her villa in Sweden. Instead you’ll see wonderful colourful touches in pink sofa’s and blue accents. Next to that the home is filled with art, cozy textures and other decor items. If you can’t get enough of this home than you can see some different pictures of this home on Tumblr which you can see here.
I have a beautiful attic apartment in Brooklyn for you today. The apartment is designed by General Assembly and they created a beautiful light attic apartment for two creatives with busy travel schedules. I love the combination of wood, concrete and industrial elements in this apartment. It gives the home a cool yet still cozy atmosphere.
