The fabulous graphical home of a stylist and friend

Friday, 21 November 2014

It's finally the weekend woohoo! I'm having such a fun day - my friend Genevieve, stylist and owner of cool shop The Youngsters, is over with photographer Kimme Persson and we've re-created my little girls room. I can't wait to show you the pictures once they're ready. But before that, I'm really excited to show you a tour of Genevieve's home here in Malmö which recently featured in Plaza magazine. Canadian born, Genevieve moved here 6 years ago and lives with her husband Kasper and gorgeous baby girl Olivia. I love her graphical style and the relaxed vibe of her home.

What very cool apartment, don't you think?

I see touches of mid-century, statement over-sized pieces such as the Z1 light and angle-poised light from Artilleriet, modern nordic such as a throw from HAY and lights from Granit and classic items such as the Eames chair. You can place an order for the Stendig 2015 calendar like the one one Genevieve over her dining table here.

The huge X print was made by one of Genevieve's friends. This could make a great DIY project for the weekend, all you would need is a white canvas, a large paint brush and black paint.

Have you got any great plans for the weekend? Whatever you're up to I hope you have a fab couple of days and see you Monday! 


Angles from Annabelle's home

Thursday, 20 November 2014

It's amazing how much inspiration you can get from zooming into selected areas of a home. Take this barn conversion recently featured on Design Sponge as an example. It belongs to Anabelle Kerslake. co-founder of fete magazine, and her family in Balhannah in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. The pair have carried out extensive renovations and decorated the space using an eclectic mix of styles. French antiques rub shoulders with Danish mid-century items from her sister and brother-in-laws shop, while industrial and romantic florals also play a part in the overall look. Anabelle's rule has been if she loves it, she buys it. A rule close to my own heart.






Home: Anabelle Kerslake, Photography: Jane Cameron. Via Design Sponge with thanks. 

What do you think of this eclectic style? Anything that stands out to you in particular?

For more eclectic home inspiration it's worth taking a peek at this and this one.

Mid-century (as you know) is one of my favourite styles (I'm sure you've seen my drinks trolley and coffee table!), you only have to take a look through the 30 'mid-century modern' home tours I've squirreled away! To source fab mid-century items try Lauritz, e-bay, Etsy or LiveAuctioneers. 

Have a wonderful day! 


A white Swedish apartment with an interesting míx

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Hello! It's yet another grey day here in Sweden (apparently this is the darkest November on record!). Sometimes I love a little bleakness (really, I do!), but today I have a photo shoot and the lack of light will be a challenge. So, I'm in need of another home to brighten up my day, how about you?! I think this Swedish apartment fits the bill!  I love the natural light and the unusual mix of styles. The chair and lamp in the corner of the sitting room look great next to the contemporary pendant light and coffee table. And I love the addition of all the plants and flowers.   








ENTRANCE

What do you like the most about this space?

One of my most coveted items right now is a round vase like the one you see on the dining table. Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton's also a fan - there's one on the table of the home she styled here. I love the glassware in her own home too.

If you're feeling inspired by natural light today (yes, I'm obsessed!) I love thisthis, and this home. Otherwise there's always mirrors like in this wonderful apartment, or candles like in this cosy Finnish dining setting.

I got a mail from my friends at Dutch company Oh My Home this morning telling me about their new ceramics line - and I had to share the link, the items are so beautiful! I'm a big fan of their posters too - the 'Whale all be fine' and sleeping Polar Bear ones would be so cute in a children's room. A little mid-week shopping therapy!

Have a lovely day!
