Sometimes you’re in the mood for fun and colorful design. Luckily I stumbled upon this Brooklyn apartment that was recently decorated by Homepolish designer Will Saks. Focal point in the apartment are the beautiful bookshelves on the exposed brick wall in the kitchen. The apartment is filled with interesting design items and every wall space is decorate with artwork. I love all the pink and blue-tones that are used in this apartment, it makes it look so fresh and fun!

If you want to go a bohemian route with your home then her decor items are the ones you should shop and you can get wonderful bohemian inspiration from all the lovely pictures.
Interior designer Amelia Widell is the new blogger for Elle Decoration and to celebrate that she gives us a peek in her lovely home. Blue and pink are the main colors in her Stockholm apartment that she shares with her daughter Luca. The pink sofa in the living room is her own design called the Dahlia. I love how she styled it with simple IKEA Billy bookcases and all those wonderful art prints. Amelia’s blue bedroom has a hotel feel to it with a lovely lounge chair and a dark blue headboard that’s also her own design. I love how Amelia took inspiration from all kind of places such as New York and Paris but there are also some Moroccan touches (she used have a shop with her father where she sold Moroccan decor and tiles). Amelia’s home is a wonderful combination of chic and cozy design. You can see more of Amelia’s designs on the website of her interior design company Meli Meli.
This Berlin apartment has everything. It’s industrial & raw but also colorful and soft. The combination of raw & soft is excellent in the living room. Here the walls are painted a grey color similar to cement and the bookcase gives the space an industrial look. The large rug and cozy fabrics give the living room also a soft touch. I love the dining table which the owner designed himself, the beautiful Wegner chairs make the look complete. There is more colour in the bedrooms with a large purple master bedroom and a blue art-filled guest room. I love how the owner combined all these styles, colours and hard & soft materials. It’s the perfect urban apartment that you ll expect in Berlin’s city centre.

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.
Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek created a limited collection named JASSA for IKEA. A new collection by IKEA is always a reason to be happy but I must say the Jassa collection is truly amazing. Sustainability is very important for Piet Hein Eek which you can also see in the JASSA collection. The furniture and lamps are made of natural materials such as bamboo and rattan. Next to furniture and lamps the JASSA collection also includes baskets, ceramics and very colorful textiles. I love the combination of colorful fabrics and natural materials that Piet Hein Eek has used is this collection and I can’t wait to see it in stores. We only have to wait a little while because the JASSA collection will go on sale in march 2017.

This creative apartment in the heart of Madrid belongs to Spanish artist Luis Urculo. He divides his time between Madrid and Mexico City and his apartment is filled with items that he picked up during his travels. From Mexican masks, industrial design and colorful kilim rugs this apartment is filled with stories from all over the world. The apartment has quite a nice story as well since it was bought by his grandparents in the 70s who then rented it out to the US embassy. The apartment of Luis Urculo is definitely a place with a lot of stories which obviously makes this home so unique.
