Ferm LIVING has created an amazing and colorful new showroom. And it’s not just a showroom but they decorated an apartment in central Copenhagen and it’s filled with their products (from lighting to pillows and furniture). I often hear that Scandinavian homes are ‘too white and boring’ but this beauty is wonderfully colourful with pink and green rooms. I could easily live in an apartment that looks as stunning as this one.
Would you dare to paint your home only in dark colours? Mette Holbæk did exactly that in her Copenhagen home and I think it’s absolutely fabulous. Her entire home is painted in dark grey & blue tones which gives the home a dramatic touch but also a very cozy feeling. I’m certainly loving this look, what about you?
A big contrast in this Scandinavian apartment. While the living space is kept white (with a stunning exposed brick wall) the bedroom is the complete opposite. Painted in a wonderful dark grey shade (Farrow and Ball – Down pipe modern emulsion), the small bedroom has a super cozy feel. I also love how they created a hallway by using a half high wall to seperate the entryway from the rest of the living room. Without losing the light from the huge window.
I know I’m not a very personal blogger. But today I’m finding the need to say a bit more than just a little text about the home I’m posting. The truth is that I’m having doubts. Doubts about this blog, the direction in which I want to go and if an interior blog is even what I want at all. I have this blog for almost 2 years now and I’ve been on Tumblr years longer. And in all honesty sometimes I think just f*ck it all! When I can’t find good inspiration, when it feels like I’m constantly repeating myself or when I’m getting hateful messages. Running a blog like this is a lot of work and sometimes I just get tired even thinking about it. I’m going to think about my blogging future in the upcoming weeks/months and hopefully I can get a clear view of what I want. But don’t worry until I make a decision I will keep posting beautiful homes 🙂 See below for a lovely home tour.
Grey, white and wood. To me those are the perfect ingredients for a calm home. I love the look of this apartment, I always like a grey & white colourscheme and the wooden floor and few wooden design pieces give the spaces some extra warmth. A nice home to start the weekend with. Have a nice one!
One of my favourite interior stylists Emma Fischer has created another beautiful apartment. The apartment is only 35 square meters but it actually looks pretty spacious. The home is decorated in true Scandinavian style with lots of natural colours, good design pieces and clever small space ideas. I really like how she used the windowsill as a seating space for the kitchen table. A real lovely apartment.
In a historic and charming area in Oslo lies this small home of only 50sq meter. With a white base this home is typical Scandinavian but with some subtle colour touches (love that pink wall in the kitchen) the home feels cozy and personal. I really love the freshness of this place and it kind of makes me wish I could start all over again with my own home!
Summer is definitely over, the first autumn storm has arrived in The Netherlands (brrr!). So now autumn has arrived I think today is a good day to show you the IKEA Winter Collection 2017. It’s a true representation of Scandianvian style with minimalistic design, light wood and blue tones. I’ve already picked a few favourites that I definitely want to buy. You can see the collection below which will be in stores in october!
This home in Denmark was transformed from an abandoned 1960s house into a stunning monochrome home. After an extensive renovation that took out all the indoor walls and raised the ceiling, the owners got this huge open-planned living space. With two sitting nooks and a fireplace that also serves as a dividing wall between the dining space and the living space this home still feels cozy. The terrace also has several sitting spaces, from a lounge space to a covered dining space. It’s a garden where you can sit all day long!
I really like wallpaper rooms! To me it always adds some extra coziness to a space. In this Scandinavian apartment – styled by Emma Fischer – they used wallpaper in the living room (Dancing Crane by Emma von Brömssen) and the hallway (Pimpernel by William Morris) and I love it. The other rooms have been kept white so there’s a nice balance between the busy wallpapered rooms and the serene private rooms.
