This farmhouse in Ojai, California puts a smile on my face. Even though the base is very neutral with white walls and concrete floors all the colourful touches in the furniture and accessories make this space pop. And of course the large windows give you an amazing view over the Californian landscape. The large farmhouse has several buildings with guest stays and a huge garden, a perfect spot to relax and unwind with family and friends.
Sometimes you come across an interior collection that makes you *squeee* a little. For me Liberty for Anthropologie is one of those stunning collections. Liberty is a British brand that creates luxury fabrics, accessories and home goods in eclectic prints. The Liberty for Anthropologie collection is absolutely packed with colour and floral patterns to create a wonderful eclectic home. The collection ranges from fabrics to furniture and stationary and I kind of want it all! See the Liberty for Anthropologie collection for yourself below (warning: there are a lot of images!!)
Copenhagen is one of the most stylish city’s I’ve ever been to. Design is very important which you can see on the street and also in the amazing selection of hotels. New (boutique) hotels are popping up everywhere. (When I was in Copenhagen in may I stayed at the recently opened and beautiful Hotel Danmark which is part of Brøchner Hotels). This fall, Hotel Sanders will open up in Copenhagen’s historic centre and judging by these first pictures it’s gonna look amazing! The design of Hotel Sanders is in the hands of Pernille Lind and Richy Almond and I can’t wait to see the final result. Hotel Sanders opens in november and you can already book your stay.
IKEA’s collaboration with Danish brand HAY is much to look forward to. Last year IKEA announced the YPPERLIG collection and they have just released images of the full collection. The collection has 30 pieces ranging from furniture to acccessories all in a minimalistic Scandinavian style. The collection will hit the store in october 2017 and untill then check out the wonderful YPPERLIG collection below and see what you want to buy!
Located in Palm Beach, Sydney this spacious holiday home has been completely redesigned by architecture & interior design firm Alexander & Co. The plan was to create an open-planned ‘European style’ home that combines indoor and outdoor living. The home definitely feels bright and spacious and with the steelframe doors you can open them up to the waterfront garden. What a dream it must be to live so close to the ocean and have such an amazing view from your home.
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!
Behind a 19th-century facade in Barcelona you will find the extraordinary home of designer Guillermo Santomà. Colour is king is this 300sq meter home and you’ll find no ordinary spaces. Guillermo kept the original floor, doors and terrazzo which I think contrast well with the unique architecture and use of colour. All the rooms in this house are connected with the bathroom as central point (and while you shower you can look up at a painted sky). I think you can walk through this house for hours and still discover new things, it’s really inspiring!
Combine a spectacular London penthouse with Cereal Magazine and interior designer Tina Norden and you’ll get an amazing home. The penthouse (that’s for sale!) is one of 4 new apartment designed by Pilbrow and Partners. The huge windows give you amazing views over the Thames. To do the industrial history of the place justice, interior designer Tina Norden used polished concrete, brass, marble and black in this penthouse. The home is decorated with carefully chosen design pieces. I love the contrast of light and dark in the bedroom. The large windows flood the room with light but the dark wall colours give the space a darker atmosphere and truly that bed is amazing!
Summer is approaching so there are more summerhouses popping up on the internet. When you think of a summerhouse they’re usually decorated in light colours. That you can go the exact opposite way shows this summerhouse in Sweden of photographer Kalle Gustafsson. After a burn-out at age 29 he decided that he should slow down. And of course the best way to do that is to buy a lovely summerhouse in the Swedish country with views over the water. The small home is decorated in blue & grey tones and filled with beautiful design furniture. I completely see why he designed it the way he did. The colors and design are so serene and relaxing. Very nice to see a summerhouse a decorated little bit different.
Give me a beautifully preserved historic home any time and you make me very happy. This apartment in Gothenburg dates back to 1898 and still has wonderful historic features. The home is decorated with wonderful furniture but you shouldn’t forget to look up as well. The biggest historic feature in this home is the painted ceiling in the living room. Isn’t is amazing? Throughout the home you’ll find more original details. That in combination with the design furniture gives the home a beautiful mix of old and new.
