A calm Berlin home with a bold twist

Monday, 3 August 2015

Hello Monday! Hello August! What a lot of fresh starts, got to love that?! I thought I'd kick off the week with inspiration from a turn of the century Berlin home. Styled by Sarah of Coco-Lapine for Fantastic Frank, the original features and high cielings of the space painted in fresh whites and light grey make a beautiful backdrop for striking contemporary pieces by New tendency and &Tradition among others. All in all, a lovely light-filled space...with a few bold twists - loving the black accent wall....and are those airplane storage cabinets in the kitchen units do you think?!).....

What a cool, calm home, don't you think?

A little about where a few of the items are from: Meta side table, Masa table, &Tradition chairs, Shift shelving system. Plug Lamp by Atelje Lyktan. Paris elevations print by Studio Esinam. Teesta rug in the sitting room.  Bergmann light fixture.

You can see more pics of this lovely home and more details about the interior here.

Three very different homes using a white and grey colour scheme here, here, here. Such a soothing combination, are you a fan? For a similar light grey try either Blackened or Ammonite.

The school holidays have nearly come to a close here in Sweden, but for now I've got two little girls waiting for me to take them to the beach to build sand castles....

Have a lovely start to the week! 

The charming home of a Swedish designer

Friday, 31 July 2015

Keeping it real on a Friday with this lovely, relaxed home and studio of Swedish designer Emma Von Brömsson, husband and three children. It's no wonder that someone who designs patterns for fabric, wallpaper, and products for the likes of House of Rym and Svenskt Tenn has a charmingly creative home full of vintage finds, unique pieces, pretty patterns and greenery. Perfect inspiration for the weekend, wouldn't you say?

What a lovely home! The combination of blue and white gives it a real Swedish touch - accentuated by the pair of traditional clogs and Swedish Hasbeens of course!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

I love the relaxed way in which it's be captured for Lovely Life too, you can see more of Emma's pretty home here (see other home tours in a similar style here and here). Is this your kind of look?

For more weekend inspiration, there's oodles of images in my archives: Danish homesNorwegian homes, Finnish homes, Swedish homes and International homes. Warning - there are litereally hundreds of homes so get comfy and pour yourself a big old cup of tea first!

I hope you have a wonderful couple of days, see you Monday!

PS I spy the safari daybed....oh how I'd love one of those!
