An all-white look for the newest interior project by Laura Seppänen Design Agency. The 2-bedroom apartment in Helsinki belongs to head of Cosmopolitan Finland Stina Mäntyniemi. Stina wanted a clean look for her apartment. No rugs, curtains and a monochrome color palette. There was one must have piece for her interior – the Bertoia chair. I love the look of this apartment, it’s clean and fresh without looking cold. A perfect Scandinavian look.
I have been following Emily Katz on instagram for a while now and the pictures she posts of her home are always so inspiring that it deserves a full tour. Emily is one of those women who can do anything. Right now she is traveling the world teaching macrame workshops, learning about energy healing, art directing and styling photo shoots, hosting dinners and events, collaborating on interior design projects and products, and dreaming up the next adventure. Her home, that she shares with her partner Adam, is an amazing bohemian and eclectic space in Portland. It’s filled with interesting objects, cozy textures and a lot of plants! If you love boho eclectic homes than the home of Emily Katz is right up your alley.
The home of Buffy Birrittella might be the perfect example of a true ‘winter home’. Buffy Birrittella – who works with Ralph Lauren – fell in love with Utah in the 70s while working on The Great Gatsby. She bought a small cottage and she started embracing the country lifestyle. After 20 years she had to move to a bigger home due to her growing collection of old objects rugs, baskets and pottery made by the Navajo people. Buffy’s wooden home breathes coziness. The wooden home is decorated with beautiful colorful fabrics and interesting artistic objects. I would love to walk from room to room and explore everything this house has to offer.
The year hasn’t ended yet, but interior brands are already looking forward to the spring. H&M Home has released its spring 2017 collection and it’s filled with natural materials and neutral tones. The occasional pink and blue bring some color to the spring collection. I love the soft tones of this spring collection by H&M and I can’t wait to see what other brands have in store for us for the new year.
Happy sunday 🙂
IKEA PS is a yearly exclusive collection from our favourite Swedish homeware store. The images for the IKEA PS 2017 collection have been released and it’s a colorful collection with the desire to transform urban living environments. Most products are multifunctional and can be easily folded and taken with you. IKEA worked with 17 designers from all over the world to create a collection of more than 50 pieces. I can certainly spot a few items that I would love to have. But we have to wait a little while for that, the IKEA PS 2017 collection will be available february 3rd.
I don’t know if you remember the amazing New York pied-à-terre of Kelly Framel that I posted back in october. Well, much to my excitement the apartment has been given a new look. Because the couple travel a lot they wanted to create their own ‘hotel suite’ apartment. A place where they can easily travel in and out from. They moved their bedroom to the living space and thereby created a new room that is being used as a walk in closet. Which comes in handy for (un)packing when they go travelling. I was in love with the old apartment, but I must say this walk in closet gives the new apartment just that little bit extra!
Happy sunday 🙂
I am not a morning person. Not even a little bit, not even at all. When you’re a bit like me, you will need all the help you can get to even make it out of bed. A nice place where you can (quitly) eat your breakfast is most definitely helpfull. Whether your kitchen is big or small you can always fit in a nice cozy space where you can positively start your day. If I had a breakfast nook like the ones below, I would definitely get out of bed a little bit quicker (but only a little bit).
A few years ago I came across the most amazing converted garage I’ve ever seen, which I posted back then on my tumblr. The garage is located in one of the most charming neighbourhoods in Amsterdam called ‘De Jordaan’. The garage is converted into an eclectic loft by the Dutch firm Bricks Amsterdam. The loft has amazing skylights that bring in tons of light and the industrial glass walls keep the space open and light. This garage conversion for me is the perfect example of a cool apartment. While browsing the Dutch real estate site Funda I saw that the garage conversion is now up for sale. Between then and now the decor has changed a bit so I will post both versions of this garage conversion in two seperate blog posts so if you’re curious what the converted garage in Amsterdam looks like now just click here.
