Wow! What a wonderful home has hit te market today in Göteborg through real estate agency Entrance Mäkleri. I immediately recognized the home because it has featured on my Tumblr blog before (here & here) and it is such a wonderful cozy home. The home is filled with vintage items, a nice music collection (and music related artwork) and cool wallpaper (I love floral wallpaper as you can see in this post) but for me the best part of this home is that wonderful light kitchen with the exposed brick wall and green tiles. I absolutely love those doors that let in so much light, what a wonderful, cozy, homely space.
I think we can safily say that this is a very cool small home. Black floors, black doors, black window frames and a wonderful exposed brick wall in combination with dark blue walls in the bedroom. The pictures were shot by the amazingly talented Anders Bergstedt who often photographes for real estate agencies in Göteborg and the pictures are always a delight to look at. This place shows that you don’t need a big home, small is cool. Can I just move in already?
Less is more in this wonderful unique home of Danish craft artist Line Galst Jørgensen and her family. The home is filled with nice artwork, vintage finds and I love the creative bookshelves in the bedroom. The quilts you see on lovely pink sofa is by her own design, they look so beautiful. This home is truly unique and a piece of art.
This factory from 1900 in the Dutch town of Gilze was a true ruin. You couldn’t stand up straight, the soil was contaminated and the building was considered unsafe. But Wesly and Astrid knew immediately that they wanted to buy the former factory and how they wanted to renovate it. During the renovations they found the beams that they kept in view and removed all the inner walls so you can see trough the entire home, no matter where you are. They put in wonderful black steeled-framed windows (just as in this Paris Loft) to give the space and industrial feeling. I think they did an amazing job with this former factory!
This industrial Paris loft in the 10th-arrondissement belongs to journalists Sara and Louis Bonnard. Together with their Italian architect Antonio Virga did they create a beautiful home overlooking the wonderful city of Paris. The couple decided to break all the dividing walls so that they could create their own space where the view over Paris from their living room was very important. They put in a large solid oak floar that adds a lot of warmth and which looks great in combination with the industrial black steeled-framed windows. They decorated their home with modern and vintage pieces (which I love, as you know!) making it feel like a very personal home. If you want to see more industrial lofts you can check out the ‘industrial loft‘ tag on my Tumblr page for a lot more inspiration!
I have posted the lovely home of Louise Ljungberg on Tumblr a couple of weeks ago when it was featured in The Way We Play. Now the home was photographed for Residence Magazine so we can see a bit more of her lovely home. The glass between the kitchen and the bedroom is such a clever idea to let in extra light and I love the shelves she put in front of it.
Happy saturday! I hope you’re having a nice weekend so far. Today I got inspired by this apartment in Rome by Quincoces-dragò & partners. This architectural and design studio based in Milan specializes in luxury retail, hospitality and residential spaces. I love the light, calm feeling of this apartment and if I see correctly it has an amazing view over Rome on the balcony, how wonderful!
Friday, the last day before the weekend. That alone should make you happy but friday is also real estate day in Sweden (is that official? I have no idea). You get overwhelmed with many beautiful homes that hit the market so it’s a wonderful day to be a interior blogger! This home in Göteborg by Stadshem is one of those beautiful homes. There’s a nice contrast going on, the kitchen and workspace are very white & light but they wanted to give the living room and bedroom a warmer feeling, so they are painted a lovely dark grey/blue. It looks absolutely stunning.
I love the work by Berlin based interior designer and stylist Annabell Kutucu. I’ve posted a dark Berlin apartment of her on my blog before and on Tumblr I’ve also posted homes by her design here & here. Today not a dark apartment, but one decorated in neutral colours. I love the comfortable living space and the cozy sitting space in front of the fireplace with the layered rugs that give the space a lot of warmth.
I’m in a French mood today. This morning I showed you a beautiful Paris apartment on the Place des Vosges, now I’m taking you further south to Lyon. This apartment belongs to interior designers Pierre Emmanuel Martin and Stéphane Garotin of Maison Hand. This modern light filled apartment is completely the opposite of their last apartment, which was completely black. The apartment lies in a building from 1852 and kept its original details like moulding, panelled walls and a gorgeous parquet floor (oh man, I love original architectural details!). The original details can make a home quite busy so they kept the colour scheme very neutral but they filled their home with artwork and items from their travels in every room which makes it a very personal home. It’s so beautiful, can I just pack my bags and move in?
