Spring has arrived so this is the time to add some plants to your home decor. Now you can choose to decorate your home with a plant here and there or you can do it like Hilton Connor. Hilton and his girlfriend live in a converted cotton mill in Baltimore. Their loft with high ceilings and large windows is completely filled with plants. Hilton and his girlfriend wanted to create a home that feels comfortable and one that never gets boring. Not only is their loft filled with plants, the walls are also covered in art and the place is packed with small personal objects. I think we can best describe this loft as a personal art-filled urban jungle.
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.
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.
This former warehouse in Delft is completely transformed to a white and green oasis. Three years ago this warehouse was just two dilapidated floors where doves were flying in and out. Pauline en Björnd complettely stripped the space and transformed this old building into a beautiful fresh living space. The home consists of two big rooms, each on a floor, that are completely painted white. The old beams and the occasional exposed brick wall show the history of this building and give the spaces some character. With the use of palets they created sitting spaces all over the house. To complete the home they decorated it with many, many plants which makes this home really come alive.
Bit late.. but it’s still sunday in some parts of the world 🙂 (top picture by mokkasin)
We’re in the middle of the summer holidays (and nice warm weather has finally arrived in The Netherlands, yay!) which also means that the real estate market is slowing down for a few months. However every now and then a beautiful home shows up like this studio apartment in Gothenburg styled by Emma Fischer. The homes that she styles always have such a serene and light atmosphere they are the absolute perfect example of great Scandinavian design. The base of this studio apartment in Gothenburg is white with some soft natural tones in the accessories. The plants give a nice pop of green and the botanical atmosphere continues in the kitchen with a botanical flower wallpaper. Living in a small studio apartment is absolutely no problem if it is styled as well as this studio in Gothenburg.
This beautiful home in Gothenburg belongs to Christian and Björn, the founders of the Gothenburg interior shop Artilleriet. You might have seen my post about Artilleriet Studio a couple of weeks ago and after seeing those images you can’t be surprised that the home of the owners of Artilleriet is absolutely stunning. The wooden kitchen island and dining table are making me extremely happy, it’s something I always wanted to have in my own house. There is not much colour in this home, and it doesn’t need it, but I love the shade of green they used in the paintwork. The home of Christian and Björn is featured in Residence Magazine this month, so I would definitely get a copy to see more images of this home.
If you’re looking for a way to make your room look bigger than take a good look at this grey toned Stockholm apartment. They very smartly placed three large mirrors on the sideboard to make the living room look twice as big. Not only the mirrors in the living room but also the glass doors to the kitchen and the glass window between the bedroom and the bathroom help create a more spacious feeling in this apartment. I also love the industrial vibe in this apartment and all the plants that decorate this space make this clever industrial Stockholm apartment even more perfect.
I love these moments when you see images of a space and you instantly get excited about it. When I saw the images of the new Väkst restaurant in Copenhagen I definitely had one of those moments. Even though the restaurant is in the middle of the city it is as if you’re having dinner in the middle of a garden thanks to the large greenhouse, built through the two floors of the space, that is placed in the middle of the restaurant.
Most of the time when I find Scandinavian apartments they’re quit small, the amount of amazing studio apartment inspiration I have gotten from Swedish real estate sites is overwhelming (Scandinavians are só good at styling small spaces). But this Stockholm apartment is the opposite, it’s huge with 247 square meter and two living rooms, because well why not? Most rooms in this apartment are painted grey with yellow and green details to add some colour. The green is also coming from the many plants that fill this home, especially in the spacious kitchen, I love that board against the wall with the plants! I love plant-filled spaces which you can also see in the home I posted friday, if you live in a city it’s a great way to bring nature to your home.
