A Charming Apartment in Norway With Vintage Touches

Gravity Home: Vintage Apartment in Norway

This apartment in Norway may be small but it’s absolutely packed with style. Home owner Lone Mariel has transformed this 52 square meter apartment into a unique home filled with vintage items and great colour combinations. Like so many Scandinavian homes the base is white, black and grey but Lone has added some wonderful colours to this monochrome colour scheme. Most notable is naturally the yellow sofa but there’s also brown, dusty pink, copper and the plants add some green touches. I really love this home and it’s no wonder that it’s in the running for Norway’s most beautiful home competition.

A Cozy Painter’s Home in a Belgian Chateau

Gravity Home: Painter's Home in a Belgian Castle

Who wouldn’t want to live in a castle? For Belgian painter Charlotte de Cock this is actually reality. She lives in a chateau in the middle of a quiet forest in Belgium. Everything you see in this home comes from flea markets, carefully selected by Charlotte’s mother. Who certainly has an eye for design! All that wood, vintage finds and cozy fabrics really give this home a cozy vibe.

An Indoor Garden at Pink Mamma in Paris

Gravity Home: Pink Mamma in Paris

I love these sort of ‘indoor garden’ restaurants that are popping up everywhere. Pink Mamma in Paris is a new restaurant in the Big Mamma chain. A chain of amazing Italian restaurants in Paris. I love everything about the restaurant; the plants, the tiles, the vintage vibe, the garden feeling and of course amazing Italian food! If I go to Paris in the future Pink Mamma is definitely on my list!

A Swedish Country Home With A Dreamy Garden

Gravity Home: Swedish Country Home with Lovely Garden

After last week’s post, I have another Swedish country home for you. This 1930s home in Southern Sweden has been featured in many interior magazines and belongs to make up artist Amelie Holmberg. Inside the home has a typical Scandinavian colour scheme, a lot of white, black and grey. I love the vintage touch of the interior which I think fits so well in the countryside. Outside the home has a lovely garden with plenty of cozy sitting spaces. Living in the Swedish country is a bit of a dream of mine so this is right up my alley!

A Cozy Vintage Loft in Manhatten

Gravity Home: Vintage Loft in Manhatten

This amazing loft in New York belongs to Benjamin Sormonte and Elisa Marshall – the couple behind the New York café Maman. Their vintage loft in Tribeca is thé definition of charming. The loft has beautiful white-painted brick walls and every item is carefully selected by the owners. This way they ended up with flea market finds from Ibiza and other vintage pieces they found in Brooklyn. They couldn’t find a sofa that they liked so they made a couch/guest bed from pallets which is inspired by outdoor furniture from Ibiza. Everything in this home fits together and I love the laid-back and cozy vibe in this home.

18th-Century Farmhouse in New York With A Modern Extension

Gravity Home: 18th-century farmhouse in New York

Contrast between old and new, if it’s done right it can be fabulous. This farmhouse in New York dates back to 1734 and still bears signs of its Dutch colonial roots. The farmhouse has been renovated in a traditional style with floorboards that were removed from an old demolished building. For the extension they went an entire different route. As a contrast to the old farmhouse they built a steel-clad building that reminds you of a trailer home. In the new building is the modern kitchen with stone floor and a guest bedroom. I’ll admit you’ll either love it or hate it and to be quite honest I definitely prefer the old farmhouse style.

A Colourful Kitchen in deVOL’s New Showroom in London

Gravity Home: Colourful Kitchen by deVOL

British design company deVOL has created a new showroom on St. John’s Square in London. deVOL bought the run down building in the hope of restoring it to its former glory. Helen, creative director of deVOL, was inspired by the history and architectural details of the house. She wanted to be a bit more daring so they used more colour than their usual kitchens. By mixing the Classic English kitchen with new colours they designed an eccentric and fun kitchen with a historic feel. At the moment only this showroom is open for customers, but in time they will open up the entire townhouse for visitors. If they decorate that just as wonderfully as this then I can’t wait to see the pictures.

A Colour Explosion In A Small London Flat

Gravity Home: A Small Colourful London Flat

That you should only use light colours in small homes is definitely a myth and Duncan Campbell & Luke Edward Hall prove exactly that in their small London flat. The apartment in situated in a Victorian building and only has a small living/kitchen space, a bedroom and a bathroom. The living space is painted in a stunning emeral green and it’s packed with books, art and mementos.  The bedroom is painted in a soft blue colour, but they’re thinking of painting it dark sea green which I think will look amazing. The bathroom rocks a Art & Crafts Voysey floral and fauna print and also here they put in some green by using green subway tiles. I absolutely love this home. The combination of colour, classic furniture and a touch of fun is absolutely spot on!

A Bright Scandinavian Apartment with Vintage Kitchen

Gravity Home: Bright Scandinavian Apartment with Vintage Kitchen

A lovely Scandinavian apartment for you this saturday. The bright home is decorated in typical Scandinavian style with lots of white, black and other neutral colours. I’m madly in love with the William Morris wallpaper in the kitchen. What’s also lovely is that the kitchen is still the original one and dates back to 1924! The bedroom is painted in a beautiful soft pink color (‘Pale Sand’ by Jotun) and decorated with great artwork. If I think about Scandinavian homes this is exactly what I imagine and I love it.

The Gorgeous Home of Interior Designer Amelia Widell

Gravity Home: Home of Amelia Widell

Interior designer Amelia Widell is the new blogger for Elle Decoration and to celebrate that she gives us a peek in her lovely home. Blue and pink are the main colors in her Stockholm apartment that she shares with her daughter Luca. The pink sofa in the living room is her own design called the Dahlia. I love how she styled it with simple IKEA Billy bookcases and all those wonderful art prints. Amelia’s blue bedroom has a hotel feel to it with a lovely lounge chair and a dark blue headboard that’s also her own design. I love how Amelia took inspiration from all kind of places such as New York and Paris but there are also some Moroccan touches (she used have a shop with her father where she sold Moroccan decor and tiles). Amelia’s home is a wonderful combination of chic and cozy design. You can see more of Amelia’s designs on the website of her interior design company Meli Meli.
