I love to look at small apartments and see all the clever small space ideas the owners have come up with. In this small loft in Sweden there are definitely some smart storage ideas. In the kitchen the microwave is hidden in the bar table and the stairs to the loft bed have plenty of storage underneath (including a spot for the washingmachine). Besides the small space ideas I love this apartment for its warmth and unique design. The beautiful wooden floor and rustic elements such as the wooden kitchen and exposed brick wall give the little home such a cozy atmosphere. And as a finishing touch the apartment is filled with plants, so lovely!
One of my favourite interior stylists Emma Fischer has created another beautiful apartment. The apartment is only 35 square meters but it actually looks pretty spacious. The home is decorated in true Scandinavian style with lots of natural colours, good design pieces and clever small space ideas. I really like how she used the windowsill as a seating space for the kitchen table. A real lovely apartment.
I love all these homes in Amsterdam that I’m finding recently. Today I give you a peek in this family home that has been completely restored by Eline (founder of fashion label Amatør). The exposed brick wall, bistro-like kitchen and vintage furniture give the living space in this home a cool edge. A particular nice detail is in the bathroom where Eline put vintage mirrors together to make 1 big mirror wall. A great way to make a bathroom a bit different. If you have fallen in love with this home then you’re lucky because it’s for sale (oh.. and it’s situated in the coziest area of Amsterdam called The Jordaan with many café’s and shopping streets nearby).
If you’re a lover of historic architecture and old school charm than this new hotel in Ghent is exactly what you’re looking for. Located in a former 19th-century post office hotel 1898 The Post is like stepping back in time with of course a modern touch. All 38 rooms have stunning historic details, antique furniture and moody dark green wall colours. The entire hotel has this wonderful atmosphere of the past but of course without being stuffy. I think I’m in love and when you’re visiting the Belgian town of Ghent I would definitely considering a stay at hotel 1898 The Post.
Zara Home’s new collection Botanical Autumn is filled with pastel colours, florals and vintage-inspired embroidery. The goal of this new line is to create a space that is calm and tranquil. I must say I absolutely love the images of this new collection, I adore the soft colour scheme and I always love a good floral pattern. And beside the wonderful new items from Zara Home, I must say that the architecture of this home is absolutely stunning!
This studio apartment is going against the common ‘interior decoration rules’. Firstly it shows that small spaces don’t have to be painted in light colours. And secondly it shows that not all Scandinavian apartments are decorated white. I love this unique home with dramatic black walls and vintage furniture. I just want to settle myself on that bed with a book and a cup of tea, what more do you want?
I’m so in love with these garage/warehouse conversions in Amsterdam. If you’ve been following me for a while you’ve already seen a few (just click here, here, here & here) and today this beauty came on the market. This home feels like a New York loft apartment with gorgeous exposed brick walls and despite the fact that the 182sq meter home is located on 1 floor (with a depth of 30 meters) it’s definitely not a dark hole. I’m in love with that skylight in the kitchen that brings in so much light. I think I might have fallen in love with this home.
I love it when old buildings are getting a new life. This former school building in Amsterdam has been transformed into apartments and on the top floor is this wonderful loft. I love how you can still see the old structure of the building with the exposed beams. It’s a very playful and unique home in Amsterdam.
In North London lies this lovely historic family home by JJ Locations. The open plan living space is very bright thanks to the large windows, white walls and light wooden floor. Luckily you can still see the original features of this property in the stained glass windows and lovely fireplaces. I really like the feel of this home, it’s very relaxed, spacious and fresh.
In a historic and charming area in Oslo lies this small home of only 50sq meter. With a white base this home is typical Scandinavian but with some subtle colour touches (love that pink wall in the kitchen) the home feels cozy and personal. I really love the freshness of this place and it kind of makes me wish I could start all over again with my own home!
