This apartment in Norway may be small but it’s absolutely packed with style. Home owner Lone Mariel has transformed this 52 square meter apartment into a unique home filled with vintage items and great colour combinations. Like so many Scandinavian homes the base is white, black and grey but Lone has added some wonderful colours to this monochrome colour scheme. Most notable is naturally the yellow sofa but there’s also brown, dusty pink, copper and the plants add some green touches. I really love this home and it’s no wonder that it’s in the running for Norway’s most beautiful home competition.
A home overlooking the sea, who doesn’t want that? Åsa and Peter had outgrown their old home after their second child came along. When their dream home came for sale (only 300 meters away) they immediately bought it. The 197 square meter home needed a lot of work but it was totally worth it. The home overlooks the sea and who can say that they use the beach as an extension to their garden? (I’m super jealous!!) The home is decorated with old & new items which compliment the original character of the home. It’s a beautiful Scandinavian family home.
When I’m searching for gorgeous homes to feature on my blog I’m often more interested in the small apartments. I always thinks it demonstrates that to make a house a home you don’t need big spaces and a lot of stuff. Small is good. This apartment in Stockholm is a good example of that. I love the shade of blue in the living room and bedroom (it reminds me a bit of this apartment). And it’s a nice surprise to see that lovely shade of pink in the hallway.
Located in Palm Beach, Sydney this spacious holiday home has been completely redesigned by architecture & interior design firm Alexander & Co. The plan was to create an open-planned ‘European style’ home that combines indoor and outdoor living. The home definitely feels bright and spacious and with the steelframe doors you can open them up to the waterfront garden. What a dream it must be to live so close to the ocean and have such an amazing view from your home.
Ah.. this home in Finland is a stunner! The home is designed by Jonna Kivilahti for a young couple and I think it’s absolutely perfect. The wooden plank walls give the home a slight cabin feel (but in a very modern way). The home is packed with Scandinavian design and the black elements give the home a cool touch. I love the combination of the grey floor, wooden wallls and cozy fabrics. It’s a combination that works so well don’t you think?
This serene Venice Beach house is designed by Electric Bowery and effortlessly combines indoor and outdoor living. The open-planned home is inspired by mid-century Scandinavian design and architecture from Venice. The floor to ceiling windows not only bring in tons of light but also enhances the outdoor living feeling. I really love the serene and natural style of this gorgeous home.
This home in Hellerup, Denmark is so filled with colours that it puts a smile to my face. The light blue tones are seen thoughout the aparment from the wooden floor to the kitchen cabinets, bathroom tiles and bedroom closet. Next to the blue tones you see many other colours and to liven up the place even more it is filled with plants! I really love this apartment. The mixture of old and new, the colour combinations and the freshness of the home is just lovely.
This Berlin apartment of only 40 square meter has been transformed by Project Architecture Company into a luxurious loft. They added a large multifunctional wall that serves as bookshelves, workspace, sleeping loft and storage space. Not only is it multifunctional but it’s also a great eye catcher. I love the touch of pink that you can see from the sleeping loft. The space may be small but it feels spacious and looks absolutely luxurious.
Holy Moly! That was my first response when I saw this barn house on Apartment Therapy this morning. Located in the Louisiana countryside this home is owned by photographer and bag-designer Kelly Moore Clark. The property, known as K Sqaured Farms, is huge and contains the house, a shop, a large breezeaway and a guest suite. The design is a bit of everything, you can see farmstyle, bohemian, modern and industrial elements in this home and I think is frickin amazing!
I’m a strong advocate of keeping original details in tact. But I love it when a historic home gets a modern extension (when it’s done right obviously). This Victorian home in London might look like a normal Victorian from the outside but there’s a hidden eye catcher. Inside you see a beautiful combination of old & new, light & dark. The original living space are painted a lovely dark blue and still has original features. The kitchen however is something completely different. The modern kitchen has a gorgeous glass extension that bring in tons of light! The home is designed by Gary Tynan of Studio 304 Architects and I think he did a stunning job! Oh.. did I mention it’s for sale?
