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!

Happy sunday everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend (I slept soooo long today, not normal), here’s some nice sunday inspiration.
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!
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!
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.
Furthest west of Lofoten in Norway is going to rise a spectacular new building the Lofoten Opera Hotel. Designed by Snøhetta this 11.000sq meter building stretches out towards the sea in southern and western direction and creates a link between the sea and the mountains. Even though the building almost stands in the sea it is still connected with the coastal town surrounding the building site. They did a truly wonderful job in blending such a large building into the landscape and I can only imagine the view you will have from your hotel room, absolutely stunning. I can’t wait for the Lofoten Opera Hotel to be finished and if the inside is just as spectacular as the outside I’m sure I will make a follow up post about this amazing hotel in Glåpen, Norway.
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?
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.
Airbnb isn’t just a great way to find a place to stay for your next travel destination, but also (if you’re like me) to find amazing interior inspiration. I have posted unique stays in France, Amsterdam and Van Gogh’s Bedroom and this time I am traveling to Barcelona. I have never been to Barcelona but when I’m looking at this apartment in a palace I might consider a trip to southern Europe. The apartment is situated in a Gothic neighbourhood in the middle of the city surrounded by the wonderful historic sights that Barcelona has to offer for example La Sagrada Familia (a church designed by Antoni Gaudí), the Picasso Museum and the Museum of Contemporary Art. The apartment in the palace, belonging to an old Catalan nobility, still has its original features such as high ceilings, 18th-century frescos and mosaic floors. The apartment is decorated in a mixture of old and new and I think it has a bit of an bohemian feel to it which I love and I especially love the big wooden windows/doors of almost 6 meters high. There is an open bathroom situated in the bedroom with the cool black walls and the platform bed is an excellent way to create storage space underneath. What about you, fancy a trip to a palace in Barcelona?
