I love old homes, I love the country side and I love beautiful interiors. Yeabridge House in Somerset combines all these things. The 18th-century property belongs to Mark Homewood and it’s filled with beautiful vintage furniture, cozy sitting spaces and moody colours. I really love this home and I think it’s a nice change here on Gravity Home compared to all the bright Scandinavian homes.
The owner of this home in The Netherlands has always had a love for green colours. So when she saw a home in only green tones a couple of years ago she knew that her new home was going to be very green! And indeed green is everywhere, from different shades on the walls, to green painted furniture and green William Morris wallpaper. I must say that I love all these green tones togerther. And the vintage furniture make this house a cool family home that can be lived in (without fearing you damage anything).
If you’re a lover of historic architecture and old school charm than this new hotel in Ghent is exactly what you’re looking for. Located in a former 19th-century post office hotel 1898 The Post is like stepping back in time with of course a modern touch. All 38 rooms have stunning historic details, antique furniture and moody dark green wall colours. The entire hotel has this wonderful atmosphere of the past but of course without being stuffy. I think I’m in love and when you’re visiting the Belgian town of Ghent I would definitely considering a stay at hotel 1898 The Post.
This studio apartment is going against the common ‘interior decoration rules’. Firstly it shows that small spaces don’t have to be painted in light colours. And secondly it shows that not all Scandinavian apartments are decorated white. I love this unique home with dramatic black walls and vintage furniture. I just want to settle myself on that bed with a book and a cup of tea, what more do you want?
This apartment belonging to Cajsa Berndtsdotter has appeared on my blog before. Back then it was featured on Elle Decoration and I loved the mixture of styles immediately. Now the house has gone up for sale so it’s nice to see it again. I am a bit dissapointed that the stunning green wall in the living room has disappeared although this ‘greige’ tone is also very beautiful. But the green just gave it a nice pop!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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.
