Next up in my best of series are studio apartments. I always love studio apartments because I feel that people are most creative in small spaces. Here are my favourite studio apartments of 2016.
Happy new year everyone. I hope you’ve had lovely days with friends & family. 2017 has started but before I’m going to dive into the new year I will look back at 2016. This week you’ll see a compilation of my favourite spaces. Today I’ll show you my favourite loft apartments of 2016, enjoy 🙂
While everyone is posting Christmas related interior I decided to go for a more normal home tour today. This studio is only 30 square meter but it screams luxury. The custom made cabinets are high quality and the studio is filled with Scandinavian design classics. It’s perfect as a pied-à-terre but honestly I would have no problem living permanently in this small but comfortable studio apartment.
Morgane Sézalory is the founder of the Paris clothing brand Sézane. Together with her husband and 2 daughters she recently moved to this apartment in Paris. Her great sense of style results in a beautiful light and colorful family home with the occasional black touches.
Artwork is very important in home decor. One of the things that always catch my eye in the many Scandinavian homes that I post is that they’re always filled with beautiful art. And now we can all get an amazing Nordic-inspired gallery wall! Desenio is a Swedish webshop that offers amazing prints and posters with a real Nordic vibe. The prints are designed by their own team but they also work with artists from all over the world. Desenio offers everything from photography to graphic prints so there is a print for everyone. And I have some very good news for you: together with Desenio I can offer you 25% off on all prints and posters (just scroll down for all the info).
Sometimes in these dark winter months all you want is a little light. This apartment in Stockholm is styled by Josefin Hååg and it’s bright in every room. The home is completely decorated in white, grey and black tones which gives the apartment a very serene atmosphere. Perfect if you love light homes, there’s definitely no winter gloom in here!
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.
