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!
This apartment in Stockholm might seem like a normal dark grey Scandinavian apartment. Until you come into the workspace where the stylist combined this dark colour with a beautiful blush pink. Luckily there’s a window between the kitchen and the office which gives the space the natural light it needs. Absolute beautiful styling by Fredrica Myrberg for Innerstadsspecialisten.
Morgane Sézalory is the founder of the Paris clothing brand Sézane. Together with her husband and 2 daughters she recently moved to this apartment in Paris. Her great sense of style results in a beautiful light and colorful family home with the occasional black touches.
If you’re afraid of putting color in your home than you should take a look at this family home. The home in Copenhagen is an explosion of color but not in a ‘crazy’ kind of way. All the colors compliment each other and give this home a personal touch. The home is very unique with a combination of vintage furniture, interesting design objects and a lot of art. This home is fun, cozy and warm and a dream for color and art fanatics.
Villa Atlantida, a historical home in the French town Pau, is the home of Lisa and Julian Ménard and their five children. That the couple loves old things is not surprising if you see their home. It is filled with vintage furniture, from family heirlooms to items found in second-hand shops, which they combine with modern design. The building itself has beautiful details such as the stained glass windows, moldings and cement tiles. Luckily for the couple all the orginal features were still in good condition, so they’ve kept them all. What I especially love in this home is the use of color, which gives the home a fresh atmosphere instead of stuffy and old. I’ll admit, you either love this or hate it. But it’s certainly a unique family home, gosh how I wish I could walk through these vintage inspired rooms.
I don’t think there’s anything in this London home that I don’t like. Beautiful use of color, a walk in closet ánd the home even has it’s own bar. It’s lovely how they worked with various shades of grey in this home. The dark living room creates a cozy atmosphere and it’s a wonderful contrast with the bright kitchen where the skylight and large glass sliding doors flood the space with light. Upstairs they kept the private spaces very calming in soft pink and grey. It gives the bedroom a bit of a Scandinavian vibe don’t you think? And honestly that bedroom with en-suite bathroom and on top of that a walk in closet? This London home is a dream come true for everyone!
I’m having one of those days that I’m completely obsessed with one color. Today I’m in a very blush mood. Even though we’re slowly going towards autumn and its darker colors I want to hang on to the soft light colors of spring and summer. Rose quartz is one of the colors of the years so you’re seeing this soft pink everywhere now. But this color is not just for one year, it looks so wonderful in many interior styles that surely it’s here to stay.
Summer may be reaching its end, but that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to that summer feeling. In this home the sun is always shining thanks to the bright colors that were used in decorating this home. With a neutral wooden base you can go in every direction with your home decor. To create a summer feeling keep the furniture light and airy and give the spaces some popping accents in fresh, bright colors. This home is decorated with blue, yellow and pink and it’s simply impossible to feel gloomy in this colorful summerhouse. Don’t forget to bring the nature in your home by adding fresh flowers to the spaces to give you that extra summer vibe.
This vintage Victorian home in London belongs to food blogger Skye McAlpine and her family. The Victorian is designed by no other than Percy and Tara from Jersey Ice Cream Co. In only 3 weeks Tara and Percy created a wonderful vintage inspired family home. The home has good bones but Percy and Tara worked hard to make this Victorian into a serene and welcoming place for Skye’s family and friends. They plastered the walls in beautiful light pink and grey to give this soft vintage look and Percy built the kitchen and some furniture. The home is filled with vintage items that Tara found in England on their short stay here. The vintage items and the old bones of the building complement each other perfectly. I’m always so amazed by the work of Jersey Ice Cream Co, they constantly manage to create these beautiful serene, vintage looking homes. See the pictures of this Victorian London apartment for yourself and fall in love!
