This 135m2 apartment on the Rue Bonaparte in Paris is an example of classic and elegant French design. Beautiful high ceilings, parquet de Versailles floor, refined wall moldings and a stunning oak panelled dining room make this Paris apartment a dream come true for everyone that loves French design. Thanks to the large windows every room in this apartment is flooded with light making every architectural detail stand out even more than usual. I love French apartments, they’re so elegant and classic. Want to see more Paris apartments? Just click here.

Real estate agency Entrance never fails to impress me with their homes and photography. This bright grey and white studio apartment is just one of many inspirational homes that they have put on the market. The home is only decorated in light grey and white with traditional furniture pieces that you see in many Scandinavian homes like a Bertoia wire chair (budget version here) and Thonet chairs (similar here & here) but to make it stand out from the normal Scandinavian apartment this small studio has an amazing eye catcher with that vintage dark red velvet sofa. Scandinavians homes always have such a calm atmosphere, I can imagine that you can completely relax in these wonderful bright and serene homes.
I love this minimalistic pink beauty that hit the real estate market in Stockholm today. The apartment has only 2 rooms, the living space is completely painted pink (very nicely in the style of the Pantone colour of the year) whereas the kitchen keeps it very monochromatic by only using grey, white and black. This apartment shows you don’t need much furniture to have a nice and comfortable home. I absolutely love this extremely stylish pink apartment.
Because I post many Scandinavian homes I often get messages saying that I don’t post enough colour inspiration so now you’re getting two colourful posts in a row. Earlier I posted a wonderful fun and colourful Paris apartment and to stay in the world of colour I found the amazing colour trend pictures from Alcro. Green Dreams, Nordic Pastel, Studio Blue and Miami Deco are four colorful trends with a fine mixture of soft pastels, happy and intense colors, natural green and matt blue. I love al the exciting and vibrant colour combinations that you see in these pictures and great inspiring geomatrical paint ideas if you want to add colour to your home in a fun and original way.
You’re going to feel very cheerful today after seeing the pictures of this 240 square meter apartment in the 16th-arrondissement of Paris. The apartment has everything you love in French apartments; herringbone floors, original stucco and French balconies but on top of that the apartment is decorated in this amazing mixture of styles, where colours and patterns are easily combined resulting in a very fun, colourful and family friendly home. My inner child is extremely jealous of the kids bedrooms in this French home, so spacious and fun! I don’t think it’s possible to be moody in this fun eclectic Paris apartment.
These beautiful new images from the Ad.White & Grey Colour Map from Alcro fit nicely with my post this morning of a Scandinavian apartment. Chosing the right paint colour can be very difficult, because of that Alcro has made a brochure with white and grey tones that fit nicely together, divided in a cool, neutral and warm group to help you find the right tone for your home. You can find the brochure here on the website of Alcro (it’s in Swedish but with Google Translate you can figure out what it says). A very helpful colour brochure for everyone that wants to style and paint their home like a Scandinavian.
After the eccentric home of yesterday, back to the traditional Scandinavian style with soft and neutral colours in this 19th-century Gothenburg home. I love the calm atmosphere that you find in the entire home thanks to the minimal use of colour. The grey and green paint in the living room and kitchen are only combined with black and wooden furniture and the small bedroom kept its white walls but because of the dark wooden floor it feels warm. I absolutely love how Scandinavians style their homes in these minimal colours but still make them look interesting and stylish.
This book- and art-filled apartment in Stockholm belongs to fashion designer Natalia Altewai and photographer Marcus Ohlsson. With the help of an architect did they change the positions of all the rooms making the home of only 69 square meters appear much more spacious. The apartment is filled with items that they find while being on the road for their work, resulting in that every item in their home has a story, which makes it a very personal home. I love that this home is designed with a careful eye for detail, just look at the kitchen cabinets which are inspired by the graphic work of Sol LeWitt. I love the combination of elegance, thanks to the beautiful materials that were used, and playfullness thanks to the use of colour and the artwork in this Stockholm home.
