This studio apartment styled by Josefin Hååg fits perfectly in the ‘slow living’ trend you see so much right now. The entire space is decorated is soft tones like grey, beige and natural materials. By not stuffing the space with many items the small home feels spacious, light and very comfortable. It’s a Scandinavian beauty (and it’s for sale through Fantastic Frank).
I’m back from holiday (which you may have noticed on my Instragram stories) so there’s a lot of catching up to do. I went to Sweden for a week so to stay in the Swedish mood I’ll start blogging again with a Swedish home. This home came up for sale yesterday and it’s absolutely stunning. The black & white colour palette combined with some vintage items, design pieces and lovely use of wallpaper make for a cozy home. Seeing homes like this only make me want to go back to Sweden!
This home of architect and interior designer Erick Millan is one of those homes that makes you happy just looking at it. His home in Mexico is packed with colour, plants, artwork and patterns. Plants are very important for Erick (after all they provide oxygen, generate harmony, reduce stress and prevent depression). By adding lots of plants and even a vertical garden he brings the outside in. This home is an absolutel wonderful jungalicious space. It’s fresh, it’s bright and it’s a super happy place.
IKEA’s collaboration with Danish brand HAY is much to look forward to. Last year IKEA announced the YPPERLIG collection and they have just released images of the full collection. The collection has 30 pieces ranging from furniture to acccessories all in a minimalistic Scandinavian style. The collection will hit the store in october 2017 and untill then check out the wonderful YPPERLIG collection below and see what you want to buy!
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?
It’s that time of the year again to get excited about the new products coming to IKEA in august. Warm colours, prints and a touch of gold that’s how you can describe the autumn collection of IKEA. The living room is the focus of the new collection with new chairs, cushions, lighting and soft rugs. Sustainability is a big item at IKEA and also in this collection they designed with the enviroment in mind, without losing the IKEA style of course. Now sit back and marvel at all the new items. We only have to wait a little bit because this collection hits the store in august!
