As you know I always love a good Scandinavian home. This small studio apartment came on the market today and it’s perfect Scandi style. The grey and white colour scheme gives the small space a serene vibe. Combine this with cozy fabrics and some wooden elements and you get yourself a perfect Scandinavian home. Love it!
Tiled floors, stunning wooden doors, exposed beams and brickwork. This home in Valencia is a pearl for people who love original details. Marcial and Andrea bought this place when it was still in terrible condition. Together with Marcial’s brother they completely renovated the home to create a light-filled apartment. Key point was to give the architectural structure of the building the center stage. Thereby they created a home that beautifully combines modern design with historic architecture.
This loft apartment in Clerkenwell, London used to be a factory where barrels were made. Now it has been turned into a stunning apartment that we can not only look at but you can stay in it as well! The (triple height!) living space has a beautiful exposed brick wall, a marble kitchen and a real eye catching dining space. Look at those indoor plants, isn’t it amazing? The apartment has 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, all beautifully designed. On top of that there is – of course – also a roof terrace, what more can you possibly want?
A 19th-century factory that hasn’t been brutally ‘renovated’ isn’t something you come across easily in New York. However this 1400 square foot loft apartment in TriBeCa hadn’t been touched in the last 50 years and still featured many original details. Søren Rose Studio designed this apartment were they created the perfect balance between New York architecture and Scandinavian minimalism. Stunning!
I’m staying with blue tones after yesterday’s beautiful home tour. This time we’re landing in Brooklyn for a colourful brownstone. Home owner Chris Benz wanted a home filled with colour, textiles and historic architecture. After buying this 1905 Brooklyn brownstone he completely renovated it room for room to end up with his colourful dream home. I love how bold he’s been with the use of colour It’s not just painting some walls, it includes doors, window frames and fireplaces all in the same colour. To contrast the warm blue tones he also used some lighter colours in the guest rooms. Truly stunning!
Over the years I’ve really become a fan of dark blue colours, it gives so much warmth to a home. This apartment in Antwerp is almost entirely blue and it’s absolutely stunning. The owner carefully planned her entire interior and the result is a warm and cozy 1-bedroom apartment. You can she paid attention to every little detail in her home and it’s a house I could easily live in. The house has nice attention grabbers such as the copper wall in the bathroom, the Audrey Hepburn painting (painted by the owner) and those lovely kitchen doors. A top feature for me is the stunning wooden floor which compliments the walls so well and give the home an extra warm atmosphere!
Behind a 19th-century facade in Barcelona you will find the extraordinary home of designer Guillermo Santomà. Colour is king is this 300sq meter home and you’ll find no ordinary spaces. Guillermo kept the original floor, doors and terrazzo which I think contrast well with the unique architecture and use of colour. All the rooms in this house are connected with the bathroom as central point (and while you shower you can look up at a painted sky). I think you can walk through this house for hours and still discover new things, it’s really inspiring!
If you’re thinking ‘hey this home looks vaguely familiar’ then you’re right! I’ve posted pictures of this home before when it was featured on VT Wonen. Now this beauty of a home is for sale and we can enjoy even more pictures! The 3-story home has many historical features such as the fireplace and the exposed beams in the bedroom. I love the combination of styles in this home and the subtle use of colour (Well subtle? Look at that pink bathroom!). The light family home doesn’t have a garden bút it is situated next to the Vondelpark.. that’s what I call a perfect location!
After last week’s post, I have another Swedish country home for you. This 1930s home in Southern Sweden has been featured in many interior magazines and belongs to make up artist Amelie Holmberg. Inside the home has a typical Scandinavian colour scheme, a lot of white, black and grey. I love the vintage touch of the interior which I think fits so well in the countryside. Outside the home has a lovely garden with plenty of cozy sitting spaces. Living in the Swedish country is a bit of a dream of mine so this is right up my alley!
Combine a spectacular London penthouse with Cereal Magazine and interior designer Tina Norden and you’ll get an amazing home. The penthouse (that’s for sale!) is one of 4 new apartment designed by Pilbrow and Partners. The huge windows give you amazing views over the Thames. To do the industrial history of the place justice, interior designer Tina Norden used polished concrete, brass, marble and black in this penthouse. The home is decorated with carefully chosen design pieces. I love the contrast of light and dark in the bedroom. The large windows flood the room with light but the dark wall colours give the space a darker atmosphere and truly that bed is amazing!
