Industrial London Warehouse Conversion

Architecture firm APA London designed this former shoe factory into a theatrical loft apartment in Clerkenwell, London. The firm was asked by Dalia Ibelhauptaite (a director of opera and theatre) and Dexter Fletcher (a director of film and theatre) to transform the warehouse from the 1930s into a personal space that represented their history. Both directors were drawn to the magnificent windows that were partly hidden from view before the renovation but are now, thankfully, beautifully restored. In the center of the large space stands the big black metal box with sliding doors that can be opened on all sides which houses the bathroom and the couple’s large film and book archive. All the chosen furniture and materials were based on the couple’s family history and their travels to Japan, Belgium and Argentina which makes this industrial loft space very personal and beautiful.

Cozy Swedish Home In Grey Tones

I love different shades of grey in homes and this home for sale in Göteborg by Alvhem Mäkleri has that. The walls in the living room are painted a very light grey while they made the bedroom a bit warmer by painting that a darker grey. It looks very warm in combination with the dark wooden floor and I love the pop of colour in the rugs in the living room and bedroom.

10 Floral Sofa’s To Get In The Spring Mood

The wind is raging here in The Netherlands, it feels more like autumn but I am desperate for spring to come and bring some warmer weather. So I thought today would be a good day to give you some floral sofa inspiration to get in the spring mood. Floral sofa’s are quite the fashion and I see them pop up every now and then when I do my daily real estate stalking plus I got a request on Tumblr asking for some floral sofa inspiration and I thought that a post about floral sofa’s would be an excellent idea. There are many different kinds of sofa’s with a floral pattern, you can get a vintage inspired sofa or go for something more modern. There is a floral sofa for everyone and with good styling it looks fantastic. So let’s get inspired and get in the (much wanted) spring mood!

White and Bright Home in Göteborg

Nobody does white homes as well as Scandinavians do it. They can make a home look bright and crisp without making it feel empty or bland. I love this home of only 56sq. meter that came on the market today in Göteborg by Entrance Mäkleri, it feels so fresh and lovely. The white is combined with soft colours in the sofa/chairs and the wooden furniture and I like the occasional dark accent in the rug and the kitchen cabinets. I think these pictures are a nice way to start the weekend!

Wake Up In The Lovely Bedroom Of Malin Persson

It must be a wonderful feeling to wake up in this bedroom of Malin Persson. It comes as no surprise that her bedroom is absolutely lovely, her home is featured a lot on interior blogs (you can also find a full home tour of her fantastic bohemian place on my Tumblr page here). I love the soft colours in this bedroom combined with the exposed beams and the peek of an exposed brick wall in the doorway. And it’s beautiful the way the sunlight floods in to this room, I would have serious trouble leaving the bed in the morning!

Cozy Home Filled With Music And A Stunning Kitchen

Wow! What a wonderful home has hit te market today in Göteborg through real estate agency Entrance Mäkleri. I immediately recognized the home because it has featured on my Tumblr blog before (here & here) and it is such a wonderful cozy home. The home is filled with vintage items, a nice music collection (and music related artwork) and cool wallpaper (I love floral wallpaper as you can see in this post) but for me the best part of this home is that wonderful light kitchen with the exposed brick wall and green tiles. I absolutely love those doors that let in so much light, what a wonderful, cozy, homely space.

Small Cool Black Beauty In Göteborg

I think we can safily say that this is a very cool small home. Black floors, black doors, black window frames and a wonderful exposed brick wall in combination with dark blue walls in the bedroom. The pictures were shot by the amazingly talented Anders Bergstedt who often photographes for real estate agencies in Göteborg and the pictures are always a delight to look at. This place shows that you don’t need a big home, small is cool. Can I just move in already?

Take A Look At The Wonderful Set Of The Danish Girl

It is award season in movie land. The BAFTA’s, Golden Globes and SAG Awards have all been awarded and in less than two weeks it’s time for the Oscars. Now this blog isn’t about films or actors so I won’t bore you with my predictions for the most important film prizes in the world, but there is one thing I can blog about when it comes to films and that is the set design. I have already posted my favourite film/tv interiors a couple of weeks ago but that was before I saw the set of the Oscar-nominated The Danish Girl. For those who don’t know, The Danish Girl is a very inspiring movie about artist Einar Wegener (Eddie Redmayne) who begins transition into Lili Elbe in 1920s Europe. The set of The Danish Girl is created by production designer Eve Stewart, who had to create a set for the richly layered world of Lili and her wife Gerda Wegener.
