The lovely home of a Dutch designer / blogger

There are so many wonderful blogs out there, I seem to discover a new one every week! My latest find is  'My Attic', authored by Dutch designer Marij Hessel. Marij has a passion for interior, decorating, fashion and photography (among other things) and frequently shares images of her beautiful  Dutch home on her blog. Here's a sneak peek.

Oh so lovely. Monochromes, pastels, patterns and big leafed plants define this relaxed family home (in my eyes at least). I particularly love her bedroom which has been decorated using finds from a recent trip to morocco (long been on my list) and the Danish shop Grenes. You can read more about her bedroom and the items in it here.

Thank you so much for the permission to share the images Marij.

For more Dutch inspiration you might want to check out this family home, a home in a converted chidren's nursery and this fab Dutch bedroom make-over. I think a trip to Holland is in order. Speaking of which, is anyone going to the 'Meet the Blogger' event in October? Sadly I can't go but it looks so great and definitely a firm date in my diary for next year!

Have a lovely day!


Black, white and copper in a Stockholm space

It's Friday.I'm in love...with this black, white and copper apartment in Södermalm, Stockholm. What a space! Light, airy and bright with beautiful designer pieces and the odd vintage find. Really what's not to love? I could pad around here over the weekend, how about you?!








Fantastic Frank
A few pieces I know and love: CopperShade light by Tom Dixon, Bertoia Side chairs, Diamond Light, House Doctor rug in the kitchen and the Marimekko Hetkiä shower curtain.

My three favourite copper pieces: The Kubus copper candle holder, Tom Dixon Etch tea light holder (which I have in my sitting room) and Scented Candle London (the perfect present for any Londoners living away from home! :). 

But does anyone know where those copper mirrors are from? I feel like I need those in my life! And the black magazine rack?!

For more inspiration you might like to take a peek at this home of a Swedish interior designer which also channels the copper trend. Or how about monochrome and brass?!

Have a wonderful weekend, up to anything great?!


Beautifully Small - clever ideas for compact spaces

I love an interiors book. And I was especially excited to come across Beautifully Small styled and written by Sara Emslie. We all know how tricky it can be to decorate a small living space, and Beautifully Small is teeming with lovely interior images, each one illustrating clever tips and creative ideas on how to make a small living space both practical and beautiful. I had the pleasure of meeting the book's photographer Rachel Whiting when she came to shoot my home in Sweden for 'Design Bloggers at Home' last year and I can safely say she is as lovely as she is talented. Here's a sneak peek of Beautifully Small.








I think I might have to buy a few of my friends this for Christmas, what a great idea for a book?
