I happen to stumble upon the website of Alexander Waterworth Interiors today and I saw this wonderful raw and elegant restaurant in New York. The interior of Musket Room is inspired by the chef’s home country New Zealand. It combines the laid back New Zealand attitude with beautiful luxurious materials such as mid-century furniture, brass light fixtures and indigo leather. I especially love the contrasting combination of the popping indigo blue furniture with the raw exposed brick walls. I’m not going to New York anytime soon, but if you do than you should think about visiting Musket Room in the Nolita neighbourhood of Manhatten.
These new images from the Norsu Interiors 2016 collection are making me extremely happy. Norsu is an online boutique and store that brings Nordic inspired homewares to Australia. The new collection can be described as Scandinavian bohemian, the spaces are styled in the traditional Norsu pastel colours and are filled with local brands and new Scandinavian brands such as Love Warriors of Sweden, HK Living, Vita Copenhagen, Kortkartellet and many others. I love how all the spaces are filled with amazing artwork, that gallery wall is giving me some major inspiration! Go to the Norsu website to see the entire 2016 collection.
This Spanish home, that is located only 10 minutes from the beach, dates from 1900 and is carefully restored by the owners with respect of the essence, structure and natural materials. Outdoors as well as indoors the natural stone is recovered and together with the exposed beams and the floor tiles makes this home full of character. The garden, which is accessable from the kitchen and the living room, is really an extension to the indoor spaces where you can enjoy the warm Spanish sunshine.

Oh! Isn’t this bright Scandinavian apartment beautiful? The apartment isn’t very big with 87 square meter but the owners made excellent use of the space they have. The half glass wall between the living room and the kitchen is such a smart way to create two seperate rooms without losing the natural light and the feeling of space. From the living room there are double doors leading to the light bedroom with Mimou wallpaper but also double doors to the hallway that stretches the entire apartment where they have created a workspace and here you will find the most colour in the apartment by the gray-green painted walls. I love this Scandinavian apartment. Small, clever, light and very stylish!
I’m quickly squeezing in another home tour this friday before I’m on my way to Amsterdam for a concert. This lovely restored carriage house in Copenhagen belongs to prop stylist and set designer Christine Rudolph. The home is completely decorated in a natural colour palette and by using a nice combination of soft and hard textures she created a lovely warm home. Her place is filled with items that have history ‘they are all things from my travels, or things that have a little story to them from one of the places I’ve lived around the world. Also, some pieces are heirlooms from my grandparents’. It may look that certain items were just placed somewhere in her home but Christine gave a lot of thought to her space and every item is carefully placed saying that she likes things to have different heights and textures. ‘I kind of sense how I should put things together—it’s very much a feeling. It’s a lot like when I create images for work, I see the picture before it’s taken’. Well it certainly works because this restored carriage house is absolutely stunning.
If you love the Pantone 2016 colours of the year rose quartz and serenity than you are going to be very happy about the next home tour. This apartment is decorated by the Spanish brand Kenay Home to show their new Scandinavian inspired collection. I love the combination of the soft colours and those beautiful vintage floor tiles, aren’t they amazing? This is a lovely light-filled apartment in this years Pantone colours, giving the apartment a very relaxed atmosphere.
Oh hello dark beauty! I only saw one picture of this dark coloured studio apartment and I was sold. This studio apartment just came on the market by Entrance Mäkleri (seriously their homes are just amazing). I absolutely love the dark coloured walls in the living/sleeping space, despite this the space is very light thanks to the combination of the three windows (see that cute little one in the corner) and the light wooden floor. The studio is quite large and can be divided into seperate rooms (I prefer it this way though) and there is a seperate spacious kitchen, with again a large window and nice wallpaper from York Wallcoverings. I love studio apartments and this one is definitely high on my list of favourite ones.
Whether you follow interior blogs or your interior inspiration comes mainly from pinterest you can’t have missed the bedroom of Dutch blogger and interior stylist Holly Marder of Avenue Lifestyle (I have posted her beautiful bedroom on my tumblr as well which you can find here). The spaces that she styles are always beautifully light, serene and warm feeling. This bedroom in a penthouse near Amsterdam is no exception, the bedroom is decorated in a minimal colour palette and she used beautiful materials to style this space. Holly styled the entire penthouse of her client and after seeing this bedroom I can’t wait to see the rest of the rooms.
