Sometimes when I’m browsing for inspiration there are homes that immediately pop out. This loft in the city centre of Amsterdam is definitely one of those homes. The house is a whopping 371sq. meter, it has a cozy patio and even a seperate studio apartment on the top floor. The exposed brick and steel doors give the home an industrial vibe but it’s also very cozy. The house reminds me of an Amsterdam garage conversion that I’ve posted on the blog before (you can see that here & here). If you want to live here I’ve some good and bad news. The good news is that the home is for sale, the bad news is that the asking price is 3.3 milion euros (ouch!!)
This home in Denmark was transformed from an abandoned 1960s house into a stunning monochrome home. After an extensive renovation that took out all the indoor walls and raised the ceiling, the owners got this huge open-planned living space. With two sitting nooks and a fireplace that also serves as a dividing wall between the dining space and the living space this home still feels cozy. The terrace also has several sitting spaces, from a lounge space to a covered dining space. It’s a garden where you can sit all day long!
I really like wallpaper rooms! To me it always adds some extra coziness to a space. In this Scandinavian apartment – styled by Emma Fischer – they used wallpaper in the living room (Dancing Crane by Emma von Brömssen) and the hallway (Pimpernel by William Morris) and I love it. The other rooms have been kept white so there’s a nice balance between the busy wallpapered rooms and the serene private rooms.
If you love Scandinavian interiors then you’ve surely come across work of interior stylist Pella Hedeby. Her blog Stil Inspiration is a haven for Scandinavian design lovers and here she shares her inspiration and her own styling work. Not surprisingly her home in Sweden is absolutely beautiful. Her home is decorated in a minimalistic style but everything works together so well. And with cozy textiles, accessories and artwork the home gets a cozy atmosphere. Plus just take a look at that that huge wooden deck with views over the Swedish countryside, what a dream!
This Paris home shows that pastel colours aren’t just for children’s rooms. The family home is located in a suburb of Paris and designed by GCG Architects (a firm I’ve featured before in an amazing eclectic Paris apartment). The home is packed with (pastel) colours, patterns and smart design solutions. I really like the look of this home, it’s fun and bright and it must be a wonderful family home to grow up in.
What better way to start the weekend then with a cozy studio apartment. You know I love studio apartments and this grey beauty is no exception. The small space is filled with plants and cozy textures in grey-tones, which I love. And I like the open shelves in that teeny tiny kitchen (I’m pretty sure that used to be a closet!) I wouldn’t mind calling this my home. Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
Serenity now! That’s how I feel when I see pictures of this apartment for sale in Gothenburg. The entire home is decorated in typical Scandinavian style so you see lots of grey, white and natural materials. To me this apartment really looks like one you can completely relax in and unwind from busy day to day life.
Sometimes you come across an interior collection that makes you *squeee* a little. For me Liberty for Anthropologie is one of those stunning collections. Liberty is a British brand that creates luxury fabrics, accessories and home goods in eclectic prints. The Liberty for Anthropologie collection is absolutely packed with colour and floral patterns to create a wonderful eclectic home. The collection ranges from fabrics to furniture and stationary and I kind of want it all! See the Liberty for Anthropologie collection for yourself below (warning: there are a lot of images!!)
Scandinavian design is often associated with white and bright spaces. But when they do use colour they often choose for deep warm hues like blue and green. This studio apartment of only 38sq. meter is cozy, functional and decorated in stunning warm colours. The base of the studio is a lovely grey wall colour that almost hints to a soft purple which is lovely in combination with the green velvet sofa and blue kitchen. The dark blue is also visible in the practical hallway that has a large closet space. And the tiny bathroom has lovely vintage-style green tiles. I really like the space, it’s not big but so stylish and warm!
There’s a good chance that you’ve seen or heard of the ‘New Darlings’. Christina and Robert are husband and wife who share their married life (and home) on their blog New Darlings. I’ve shared pictures of their previous home but this year they’ve moved to a 1930s Tudor Home in Phoenix and luckily for us they share the proces of creating their dream home on their blog. Their home is decorated with mid-century and vintage design and it’s an absolute dream! Take a look for yourself and look at their instagram for more inspiration.
