Over the years I’ve really become a fan of dark blue colours, it gives so much warmth to a home. This apartment in Antwerp is almost entirely blue and it’s absolutely stunning. The owner carefully planned her entire interior and the result is a warm and cozy 1-bedroom apartment. You can she paid attention to every little detail in her home and it’s a house I could easily live in. The house has nice attention grabbers such as the copper wall in the bathroom, the Audrey Hepburn painting (painted by the owner) and those lovely kitchen doors. A top feature for me is the stunning wooden floor which compliments the walls so well and give the home an extra warm atmosphere!

There are wonderful new items coming to IKEA in april and it mainly focusses on storage and multifunctional living. There are some new furniture items that are ideal for the ‘floating home’. The focus is on young people who’s house often change in location, condition and contents. The furniture is flexible, functional and has an industrial look. IKEA also comes with a great office system called SVALNÄS that I’m seriously considering for my own home. With this system – where Asian and Scandinavian design meet – you can create your own ideal workspace using shelves, cabinets and desk space with drawers made of bamboo. Enjoy looking at all the wonderful new products that hit the IKEA store in april.
Swedish brand H&M isn’t just for clothes, they also have an amazing H&M Home collection. New images – shot by Pia Ulin – of the Fall 2016 collection have been released and they are amazing! The collection is in true autumn colors with lots of textiles in grey and blue. Also there is a lovely new rug collection with great patterns. So if you want to move away from IKEA a little bit (altough their new collection is amazing) you can shop some of the new H&M Home Fall collection. Get inspired by these images and be ready to give your home a fall look. (images by Pia Ulin & H&M)
I love these large wall map illustrations by Marin Montagut that he created in collaboration with A Paris chez Antoinette Poisson. In the illustrations you see three iconic Parisian gardens: Luxembourg, Tuileries and Jardin des Plantes. Marin has made the original drawings of the plans of each garden as they are today, while respecting the spirit of the engravings of the eighteenth century. The wall maps are available in black and white and there are a limited amount of maps in colour.
