When entering this home in Copenhagen you immediately see that it is a historic home. The low ceilings, arched windows and exposed beams are a very prominent feauture in this warehouse from 1777 in central Copenhagen. The apartment isn’t big so the owner came up with some clever sollutions to add storage, for example by making a custom plywood bed with storage underneath and making good use of the space in the hallway for a little cosy seating ‘cave’. The architectural features combined with the vintage furniture give this 18th-century apartment a cosy, charming and personal atmosphere.
If you think Scandinavian homes only use white and natural tones than this home in Stockholm will prove you wrong. This classic and elegant home belongs to David and Charlotta Zetterström, the founders of bakery chain Fabrique. The couple restored the home as close to the original condition as they could, resulting in a stunning classic home filled with traditional architectural details in combination with a mixture of old and new furniture. But what makes this home unique is the bold use of colour. The soft blue, deep green and dusty pink work very well together and give this home a personal and luxurious feeling.
I am not a religious person, but I do love the architecture and historical feeling of churches. So when a church building is no longer needed in its original function I love seeing it restored with respect and care towards the history of the building. This however doesn’t mean that the interior of the building should be vintage or ‘old fashioned’. A contrast between the historic architecture and a modern interior can be very beautiful when it’s done well, as in this church in Utrecht.
Last week I posted a lovely new project in Hudson Valley of the design duo Tara Mangini and Percy Bright of Jersey Ice Cream Co. While I was browsing their website I found more images of a project in Long Island that I had posted on tumblr last year. The charm, character and history that they manage to put into their projects is truly amazing. This large home in Long Island is no exception, while I love almost everyhing in this home I am especially in love with the kitchen and dining area in this home with the beautiful glass walls and ceiling and I always love a pink sofa!
I’m in the mood for a fresh and bright all-white interior today and no one does an all-white interior better than the Scandinavians. This minimalistic apartment in Gothenburg came on the market by Entrance yesterday and is completely decorated in white with a touch of grey and blue. I love the bright, clean and sunny feeling of this space. Enjoy your weekend with this inspirational white minimalistic home. (Ps: You can now also find my blog on Facebook)
If you love large windows that bring the outdoors in than this architectural home called Thong House in Vietnam is something you are going to love. The family residence consists of large cubes divided over 4 stories built around a central staircase. The large open spaces and lack of walls creates a space where family members can easily connect and interact with each other. The huge windows in the living spaces creates a open feeling where indoors and outdoors blend together while the carved wooden panels that cover the exterior create privacy in the bedrooms. Those windows in the 5-meter-high living room really takes my breath away, such beautiful architecture.
I like the calm vibe in this small white apartment in Gothenburg. The monochromatic home is mainly decorated in white tones with some black, blue and wooden items to add some diversity. They divided the kitchen into two rooms, creating a seperate bedroom, but they very cleverly put a black framed window in the wall to give the kitchen some natural light. I know an all white interior isn’t for everyone but I love how it creates such a light and calm atmosphere.
Living in an industrial loft apartment in New York is a dream for many people and Alina Preciado (designer, artist and owner of online homewares store Dar Gitane) has made that dream come true. This loft space in Brooklyn was in a complete state of abandonment when she found it, but with much love and care she created a wonderful space decorated with items inspired by her travels. Come and see the full tour of this amazing industrial Brooklyn warehouse loft.
Are you familiar with Jersey Ice Cream Co? If not then you should be. Jersey Ice Cream Co is the company of Tara Mangini and Percy Bright who literally move into a home while they are renovating to get the right feeling of the space. The results are aways stunning, their home are filled with personality and character thanks to the lovely mixture of new and vintage items. Their latest project is a Revolutionary War home in the Hudson Valley, a beautiful historic home with exposed beams, wooden floors and lots of charm.
Let’s start the new week dark. This lovely small Stockholm apartment is completely decorated in warm dark colours. Together with the herringbone floor, the many pieces of artwork and beautiful furniture you get a warm, stylish and charismatic home. It’s beautiful how the colours change by the light that floods through the windows and they very cleverly put a window between the kitchen and bedroom so that the grey kitchen gets some extra light as well. It’s so beautiful and a great example that painting small spaces in dark colours definitely works.
