Let’s start the weekend with this beautiful maisonette in Stockholm. We get two apartments for the price of one with this classic apartment that kept the beautiful original features of the building. On both floors you will find a complete living space with bedroom and bathroom. The lower floor has a living space with open kitchen plus a bedroom with en-suite bathroom that is decorated in soft grey tones. But my favourite is the top floor with the slanted ceilings, white walls, exposed beams and skylights that bring in a lot of light. I’m a complete sucker for attic apartments, they’re so cozy! What a lovely Stockholm maisonette and ideal if you’re living with other people but you want to have you own private space.
A very lovely light Scandinavian apartment hit the market today at Stadshem. I recognized this apartment by those great blue double doors to the bedroom, so I browsed through my archive and saw that I’ve posted this apartment before when it hit the real estate market more than a year ago. Now the home is styled differently but it obviously remained the typical bright Scandinavian style. This small light Gothenburg apartment is mainly decorated in white with some black touches in the accent wall in the bedroom and the black wooden kitchen floor and of course the lovely pop of colour with the blue double doors. A typical Scandinavian apartment, that shows that homes don’t have to be big to have great style.
On the Swedish island Gotland lies this wooden summerhouse with views over the Baltic sea. The home consists of one large space with wooden walls that divide the large open space into smaller sections. Because the walls do not touch the ceiling and one wall is completely made of glass there is a wonderful light and spacious feeling. The minimalistic home is decorated in grey tones that mix beautifully with the wooden walls and ceiling. The summerhouse is surrounded by trees and has a wonderful view over the Baltic sea, it’s an ideal getaway for the warm summer months that are on its way!
What a beautiful and charming Gothenburg apartment hit the market today through real estate agency Entrance Mäkleri. The home is completely renovated and has a modern kitchen and bathroom but it also maintained it’s original features such as the light wooden floor, stucco and the panel doors. The home is decorated in a nice mix between modern and vintage items and I absolutely love the dreamy bedroom with grey walls and the white DIY canopy above the bed, I would never leave the bed! Just dream away with these lovely pictures by Anders Bergstedt of this charming Gothenburg home.
This former factory in Sydney is the minimalistic home of architect William Drew. It took months to complete the renovations of this former factory, but the result is absolutely stunning. I love the raw elements such as the exposed brick work and the concrete floor which are enhanced by the white & neutral palet of the furniture. This bright Sydney home is a dream for people who love raw minimalistic spaces.
Australian photographer Vee Speers has launched a new photographic serie called Botanica. Every interior design lover must be familiar with the series ‘The Birthday Party‘ or ‘Thirteen‘ by Vee Speers which are frequently seen in homes all over the world. This new serie Botanica features four beautiful flowers that have been photographed as if it was a person – like a portrait. According to Vee Speers this series symbolises a moment of quiet solitude in a world that is becoming increasingly complex. The photographes were shot outside in morning light and draws the viewer into the botanical world which tells the story of a blooming life. Vee Speers has such a unique way of taking photographes, you can instantly tell it’s her work and I am certain that we will see this new serie Botanica a lot in future home tours.
After all the bright Scandinavian spaces that I usually post, let’s go back to black. Black never really goes out of fashion so it’s a very good choice for your own home. Today we will be looking at black kitchens, there is so much to choose when it comes to kitchens, do you want an industrial kitchen or a modern one? Do you want to pair it with concrete, subway tiles or wooden elements? Perhaps a kitchen island or open shelves? There is the perfect black kitchen for whatever your style and the size of your kitchen is and I selected 20 gorgeous black kitchens to get you inspired.

On the Greek island of Spetses stands this compound of villas that were transformed for one family by architect Nikos Moustroufis and decorater Isabel López-Quesada. This property consists of one main building and two smaller residences, each of them having their own living space, kitchen and bedrooms. The three buildings are linked together by connecting doors, interior and exterior staircases, terraces, and the courtyard. It’s like a little village where each has its own space but your still close together, ideal for family get-togethers without being on top of each other! The interiors of the villas are in a traditional Greek look with items from all over the world it gives the property a very laid back atmosphere with a hint of some bohemian touches. I love that they add colour by painting the floor and ceiling a lovely soft blue instead of the more traditional way of painting the walls, a very interesting way of adding colour to your home. Outside there is a lovely covered terrace and a swimming pool with seaview that I think will make everyone want a villa on a Greek island!
