That I’m a big fan of studio apartments is probably not a secret. I find it incredibly inspiring to see what people can do with a tiny space and make it a comfortable home. I have posted this studio apartment in Stockholm a few months ago on tumblr and it was a big succes. Now the studio apartment has been put on the market again by Alexander White. They have redecorated the studio and I must say it looks even better now! The studio has an industrial vibe and it doesn’t lack for anything. The wooden floor and Kakelugn already give the space a lot of character and they didn’t clutter the small space with too much furniture. The living room only has a Chesterfield sofa and a chest of drawers but they decorated the space so wonderfully with artwork, plants and candles that it doesn’t look bare. Could you live in such a small – but cool – studio apartment?
Summer may be reaching its end, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to that summer feeling. In this home the sun is always shining thanks to the bright colors that were used in decorating this home. With a neutral wooden base you can go in every direction with your home decor. To create a summer feeling keep the furniture light and airy and give the spaces some popping accents in fresh, bright colors. This home is decorated with blue, yellow and pink and it’s simply impossible to feel gloomy in this colorful summerhouse. Don’t forget to bring the nature in your home by adding fresh flowers to the spaces to give you that extra summer vibe.
À neglected 100-year-old farmhouse was rebuilt by Brian and Kelli and the old elements of the original farmhouse are to be found everywhere in their home. Throughout the home lies a concrete floor and the home is filled with natural materials (many of them salvaged) in earthy tones. The big focal point of the living room is the large barn door of reclaimed wood that seperates the living room from the ceramics studio. When it’s open it gives the living space more natural light but it can easily be closed to create a seperation from work. Many items in this home were handmade by the couple and it’s truly a lovely serene home. Just take a look at the pictures – shot by Pia Ulin – and marvel at this handmade home.
This vintage Victorian home in London belongs to food blogger Skye McAlpine and her family. The Victorian is designed by no other than Percy and Tara from Jersey Ice Cream Co. In only 3 weeks Tara and Percy created a wonderful vintage inspired family home. The home has good bones but Percy and Tara worked hard to make this Victorian into a serene and welcoming place for Skye’s family and friends. They plastered the walls in beautiful light pink and grey to give this soft vintage look and Percy built the kitchen and some furniture. The home is filled with vintage items that Tara found in England on their short stay here. The vintage items and the old bones of the building complement each other perfectly. I’m always so amazed by the work of Jersey Ice Cream Co, they constantly manage to create these beautiful serene, vintage looking homes. See the pictures of this Victorian London apartment for yourself and fall in love!
That Pernille Teisbæk has a great sense of fashion was already known. But her sense of style doesn’t stay in the fashion industry because her home in Copenhagen is an example of style. In her home you find a mixture of Scandinavian design, vintage items, texture with Moroccan rugs and here and there some bling in the brass details. Her home isn’t crowded with furniture but it still has a stylish and personal vibe. You can definitely see Pernille’s sense of style in her Copenhagen apartment.
In this apartment – called ‘The Carpenter’s Pride’ – you will find a mixture of Scandinavian, French and Scottish design. Close to Gothenburg in the Jonsered community this lovely vintage inspired apartment is situated in a brick building that closely resembles British architecture. The architecture comes from the Scotsman William Gibson who founded the Jonsered factories in the 1830s and thereby building a small industrial society in Sweden. The living room in the apartment is a typical Scandinavian styled space with light grey walls, white floors and minimal design. But when you move to the kitchen you suddenly find yourself in France with the wooden ceiling and blue vintage looking kitchen cabinets. In the attic spaces you will go back to Scandinavian design and here the bones of the old British-style building are still visible with exposed beams and brick walls. The best thing about the attic space is probably the ‘hidden door’ leading to a kids bedroom (that’s just a dream for every
kid person isn’t it?) A beautiful vintage inspired apartment in Scandinavian and French design in a British-style building.
Interior stylist, blogger and photographer Daniella Witte is well known in the interior world. You might have seen her work for IKEA or maybe you follow her blog where she always gives wonderful interior inspiration. Daniella’s home is now featured in Elle Decoration and, not surprisingly, it is absolute perfection. Her home, just outside Malmö, is an old horse farm that she and her husband carefully renovated into a wonderful family home. Important for Daniella was that she listened to the old house and getting a good combination between old and new saying that ‘you shouldn’t modernize an old home too much’. The home already looks perfect (in my opinion) but the renovations are not complete yet, the stables will be transformed into a large studio for Daniella and they have plans of opening a bed & breakfast, which will probably be the most stylish B&B in the world. If their home is an indication of what the B&B will look like, than I can’t wait for them to start the project and see the pictures! But first lets drool over the images of Daniella’s Scandinavian home.
Small garden sheds, micro homes or cabins are popping up everywhere nowadays. These small retreats are being decorated in cozy small spaces where you can step away from hectic day-to-day life. This small rustic garden shed is located in East Sussex and belongs to Jeska from Lobster and Swan. In collaboration with Waltons they created this wonderful bohemian rustic retreat filled with colorful fabrics, vintage items and plants. I know this is only a garden shed, but I could easily live in such a small (but extremely beautiful) space, what about you?
I’m back from holiday to Norway so today is all about catching up on all the nice homes that were put online in the last week including this lovely Scandinavian apartment with a dreamy bedroom. The apartment is not very big but by taking out the wall between the living room and the kitchen they created a lovely light open plan living space. To create some difference between the kitchen and living room they painted the walls in the kitchen a light blue which looks lovely with the white base. My favourite part of this home is the bedroom were the walls are painted grey and they put a lovely canopy above the bed giving it a dreamy atmosphere. It’s lovely to stay in a Scandinavian mood after my holiday with this dreamy Scandinavian apartment.
This serene private home on the island of Ibiza is the perfect getaway from the hectic day to day life. Berlin based interior stylist Annabell Kutucu designed this private home on Ibiza and made it into a wonderful serene home where you can only find absolute rest. The home is decorated in mainly natural materials such as bamboo, wood and rattan and through the entire home lays a stone floor. Even in the bedrooms they didn’t hide the natural stone walls giving it an even more natural vibe. You won’t find any exuberant colors in this home, alle fabrics are in neutral colors therefore making the home one with the surrounding nature. A beautiful outdoor space with swimming pool will give you plenty of space to soak up the Spanish sun and enjoy the views of Ibiza.
