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.
This apartment in Stockholm is true perfection. The apartment is styled by Scandinavian Homes for real estate agency Alexander White. I always love the styling by Scandinavian Homes, with all the artwork and typical Scandinavian design they give a space a real feeling of home. When can I move in?
After a holiday in France, Menno and Tessa decided to design and built their own home. The couple mainly used natural materials and added a lot of storage, because with 3 children it’s nice to keep clutter behind doors. The light living space with open kitchen was a priority for the couple. Their trip to France inspired the wooden structure, concrete floor and pebbles in the bathroom. It’s a beautiful light family home with a Scandinavian touch.
Sometimes in these dark winter months all you want is a little light. This apartment in Stockholm is styled by Josefin Hååg and it’s bright in every room. The home is completely decorated in white, grey and black tones which gives the apartment a very serene atmosphere. Perfect if you love light homes, there’s definitely no winter gloom in here!
I have been following Emily Katz on instagram for a while now and the pictures she posts of her home are always so inspiring that it deserves a full tour. Emily is one of those women who can do anything. Right now she is traveling the world teaching macrame workshops, learning about energy healing, art directing and styling photo shoots, hosting dinners and events, collaborating on interior design projects and products, and dreaming up the next adventure. Her home, that she shares with her partner Adam, is an amazing bohemian and eclectic space in Portland. It’s filled with interesting objects, cozy textures and a lot of plants! If you love boho eclectic homes than the home of Emily Katz is right up your alley.
I don’t know if you remember the amazing New York pied-à-terre of Kelly Framel that I posted back in october. Well, much to my excitement the apartment has been given a new look. Because the couple travel a lot they wanted to create their own ‘hotel suite’ apartment. A place where they can easily travel in and out from. They moved their bedroom to the living space and thereby created a new room that is being used as a walk in closet. Which comes in handy for (un)packing when they go travelling. I was in love with the old apartment, but I must say this walk in closet gives the new apartment just that little bit extra!
I always love a converted space. And this garage conversion in Amsterdam is one of my favourites. As I mentioned before the decor in this converted garage has changed a little bit, it’s now a little bit lighter and more family friendly. But I couldn’t only post one version of this loft apartment because it’s simply too cool! If you’re curious what the apartment looked like before, just click here. Oh! and the industrial loft is now up for sale so I’d say take your chance if you want to live in one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Amsterdam!
A few years ago I came across the most amazing converted garage I’ve ever seen, which I posted back then on my tumblr. The garage is located in one of the most charming neighbourhoods in Amsterdam called ‘De Jordaan’. The garage is converted into an eclectic loft by the Dutch firm Bricks Amsterdam. The loft has amazing skylights that bring in tons of light and the industrial glass walls keep the space open and light. This garage conversion for me is the perfect example of a cool apartment. While browsing the Dutch real estate site Funda I saw that the garage conversion is now up for sale. Between then and now the decor has changed a bit so I will post both versions of this garage conversion in two seperate blog posts so if you’re curious what the converted garage in Amsterdam looks like now just click here.
If it’s one thing Scandinavians can do it’s making a home appear very bright and spacious without losing it’s charm. This apartment in Gothenburg is only 57 square meter but it looks very spacious and so crisp! I love how the light flows through the window in the living room and the white floor makes it even brighter. They gave the walls a very soft grey color so it isn’t entirely white but the brightness remains. I love this, the only downside for me is the bedroom which doesn’t really fit with the rest of the home. But it only needs a few changes to make that bright and crisp as well.
Christmas is approaching fast, which means that a lot of home tours in Christmas spirits are appearing on the internet. This beautiful Christmas home in a 1960s bungalow is located in The Netherlands. The bungalow was extremely boring when Kim and Tjimme bought it, but together with architecture firm RoosRos did they create a warm family home. I love how they difined the spaces with color. The living room is painted in dark and warm colors while the kitchen is very light. Upstairs there’s a nice blend of grey-tones to create a warm bedroom and bathroom. It’s abolutely a stunning home and there a quite a few great Christmas decor ideas here!
