Hunting for George did it again! Exactly one year ago I posted an amazing loft apartment designed by the Australian homeware and furniture supplier. This year they’ve decorated a stunning warehouse apartment with their new collection Welcome Home. The space has everything you wish for in a warehouse apartment. Exposed brick walls, high ceilings, stunning arched windows and decorated with plants and lots of artwork. Take a look for yourself and if you like the style than you can shop the items at Hunting for George.
Spring has arrived so this is the time to add some plants to your home decor. Now you can choose to decorate your home with a plant here and there or you can do it like Hilton Connor. Hilton and his girlfriend live in a converted cotton mill in Baltimore. Their loft with high ceilings and large windows is completely filled with plants. Hilton and his girlfriend wanted to create a home that feels comfortable and one that never gets boring. Not only is their loft filled with plants, the walls are also covered in art and the place is packed with small personal objects. I think we can best describe this loft as a personal art-filled urban jungle.
I often hear that Scandinavian homes don’t have enough colour. Now personally I really like the more typical Scandinavian homes but a little colour here and there certainly doesn’t harm the interior. For the lovers of Scandinavian homes ánd colour I show you this Copenhagen loft. The rich colours work really well because of the large windows and high ceilings. The old beams from the building – that dates from 1877 – have been preserved to give the spaces some extra character. This loft has a beautiful combination of classic Scandinavian design pieces, historics features and modern elements.
I love attic apartments. For me they always have a natural cozy feeling and if you style it right they really don’t feel cramped. In this Scandinavian attic apartment they kept all the walls white to really help brighten the space up and help the natural light that floods in. As we’re used to by the Scandinavians, the apartment is styled to perfection. With a black and white colorscheme they kept it natural but with cozy textures, artwork and the occasional vintage wooden furniture it’s feels and looks like a cozy home.
My heart leaps up every time I see a good conversion. My heart almost jumped out of my chest when I saw this conversion of a monumental school building in Leiden, The Netherlands. The schoolhouse from 1925 is converted by architecture firm Atelier Space into a stunning light-filled family home. They kept most of the historical elements of the building such as the tiled floor, the doors and skylights. All the spaces have 4-meter high ceilings and the large windows flood the spaces with natural light. It’s beautiful how they managed to transform these large open spaces into a cozy and modern family home. And of course I’m always happy when architecture firms manage to keep as many historical elements as possible.
The real estate market in Sweden is going fast.. really fast! This lovely Scandinavian apartment is styled for agency Alvhem but before it could even properly hit the market it had already sold. Luckily for us they still put some pictures online of this serene grey apartment. The apartment has beautiful original details and a magnificent fireplace. The window between the kitchen and bedroom is such a clever way of getting natural light into the kitchen. The home has been for sale before and if you prefer a darker colorscheme you can check that out on my tumblr.
I’m in love with old derelict buildings that are given a new life. This farmhouse in The Netherlands wasn’t in very good shape when Denny and Vivian bought it, but they fell in love with the location and the unlimited view of the fields behind the farmhouse. Architect Joep van Os decided to add gigantic steel and glass walls so that the owners can fully take in the view that they love so much. The farmhouse has a lovely combination of old and new. They managed to keep the wooden beams and the exposed brick walls that the owners loved very much. The white base and the steel frames add some modern touches to an old building. I love how the architect managed to bring this farmhouse into the 21st-century without losing its historic charm.
Interior designer Amelia Widell is the new blogger for Elle Decoration and to celebrate that she gives us a peek in her lovely home. Blue and pink are the main colors in her Stockholm apartment that she shares with her daughter Luca. The pink sofa in the living room is her own design called the Dahlia. I love how she styled it with simple IKEA Billy bookcases and all those wonderful art prints. Amelia’s blue bedroom has a hotel feel to it with a lovely lounge chair and a dark blue headboard that’s also her own design. I love how Amelia took inspiration from all kind of places such as New York and Paris but there are also some Moroccan touches (she used have a shop with her father where she sold Moroccan decor and tiles). Amelia’s home is a wonderful combination of chic and cozy design. You can see more of Amelia’s designs on the website of her interior design company Meli Meli.
An industrial shipyard welding hall has been transformed by Nyréns Arkitektkontor into modern light-filled loft apartments. The gorgeous large industrial windows are the focal point of the apartment. These windows flood the loft with plenty of natural light in the living space and the loft bedroom. The living space is compact but decorated very cozy in neutral colors and a lot of plants. The loft bedroom is also decorated in grey colors and has a lovely view through the large windows. I’m not only in love with the decor of the loft but I also like the architecture of this complex very much. From the front it looks like a big box but the courtyard gives a very playful and cozy atmosphere. A conversion done well by Nyréns!
This Scandinavian apartment feels and looks like a luxurious hotel. The light apartment is newly built and it is designed with luxury and quality in mind. The entire apartment feels bright and fresh and that bedroom with walk in closet is absolutely to die for. Waking up here must feel like you’re living in a 5-star hotel. The only thing you need are lots of clothes to fill up that beautiful closet.
