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.
This beautiful home in Gothenburg belongs to Christian and Björn, the founders of the Gothenburg interior shop Artilleriet. You might have seen my post about Artilleriet Studio a couple of weeks ago and after seeing those images you can’t be surprised that the home of the owners of Artilleriet is absolutely stunning. The wooden kitchen island and dining table are making me extremely happy, it’s something I always wanted to have in my own house. There is not much colour in this home, and it doesn’t need it, but I love the shade of green they used in the paintwork. The home of Christian and Björn is featured in Residence Magazine this month, so I would definitely get a copy to see more images of this home.
If you’re looking for a way to make your room look bigger than take a good look at this grey toned Stockholm apartment. They very smartly placed three large mirrors on the sideboard to make the living room look twice as big. Not only the mirrors in the living room but also the glass doors to the kitchen and the glass window between the bedroom and the bathroom help create a more spacious feeling in this apartment. I also love the industrial vibe in this apartment and all the plants that decorate this space make this clever industrial Stockholm apartment even more perfect.
