During the Stockholm Design Week the Lydmar Hotel in Stockholm has launched a newly decorated suite for the international guest. The suite is designed by architect Eva-Lotta Axelsson – founder of Nude Studio. The theme of the suite is ‘World Citizen’ and to create this feeling they choose to decorate it with furniture from B&B Italia. The suite has a luxurious feeling but it also feels a bit like a home. It’s not just an impersonal hotel room, it is a space you can relax in. And if the design isn’t enough to win you over, the suite has also views over the Old Town and the Royal Castle of Stockholm.
I’m in love with the home of former model, stylist and blogger Malin Persson. Malin left the hectic life in Italy to set up home in southern Sweden together with her husband and 3 children. Her home has this lovely bohemian style with plenty of space for the kids to play in. From vintage pieces to new decor, everyhting seems to compliment each other perfectly. You can definitely see that it is a house that’s being lived in and therefor it feels very personal and cozy. I’m absolutely in love with this home and I just want to soak into that wonderful copper bathtub. Isn’t it perfect?
Today I’m in the mood for some softer colors and luckily for me I came across these beautiful images from Dulux. The Sentience Palette is one of the Dulux Colour Trends of 2017. It’s only february but I’m already thinking of spring and these stunning pastel colors and soft neutral hues are perfect for the spring season.
I’ve been in love with Lotta Agaton’s home ever since I first set eyes on it. It was probably on instagram that she posted snippets of her moody grey home in Stockholm. Last year the home was photographed by Pia Ulin for Residence Magazine (see those pictures here). Now Lotta has put her home up for sale and again we can swoon at her perfect styling and moody rooms. Not everyone would dare to paint not only the walls but also the ceiling grey. But this home demonstrates how beautiful it can be. Who says that grey is boring?
Vintage House Daylesford is a miners cottage from the 1860s in Australia. The property is carefully restored and designed by Kali Cavanagh. She kept most of the original features of the cottage and only used shades of white and black. She decorated the house with a lot of vintage and industrial furniture which gives the space a rustic cottage feeling. The house has 2 bedrooms ánd a garden studio which can be rent for groups from 6-8 people. Isn’t this cottage just perfect? I would definitely rent this for a nice holiday!
Designers usually say that when you’re living in a small apartment you have to keep it light to make the space look bigger. I don’t think that’s true and this apartment in Stockholm shows that small apartments can definitely be painted in dark colors too. The apartment is only 44 square meter and is completely painted in dark hues. Together with the gorgeous wooden floor they created a beautiful warm and cozy apartment.
This home in Australia belongs to designer Margaret Scholley. She founded Alida & Miller Interior Design and together with her daughter they take on design projects in the Byron Bay area. The home’s layout is inspired by her own family, so a large open plan living space, a library and a swing(!) for her grandsons. I love all the textiles, patterns and color that she used in this home. It feels like a truly comfortable family home. A home to be lived in. (Ps: see the mximalist home of her daughter here)
After all the monochrome Scandinavian apartments, it’s time for some color don’t you think? This vibrant home belongs to Matt & Beau who’ve always dreamed of living in a typical colorful New Orleans shotgun home. The home still has its original floors and ceilings which give the space a lot of natural charm. While they kept the living room a natural white, in the dining room they decided to go bold and paint it pink. (which suits nicely with the outside of the home). I love the cozy playfullness of this home, the colorful details and many plants really make this home come alive.
New week and what better way to start it than with a nice Scandinavian apartment. Again, this apartment has industrial glass doors just as the apartments I posted last week (which you can see here and here). This apartment is also styled by Scandinavian Homes and you can see their specific decor style clearly in this home. I’m absolutely in love with this bedroom and the glass wall and door is so stunning!
If you’re very keen on privacy for your bedroom, this might not be the best idea. But it does give a small apartment a more spacious feeling if you add a glass wall. These glass industrial walls is something you see a lot in Scandinavian apartment right now, you can see it as well in the apartment I posted earlier this week. It’s really a lovely way to keep the natural light in all rooms and it’s a nice eye catcher. But if you want to have a private bedroom it might be a good idea to add some curtains.
