Singing the blues in a Danish apartment

Thursday, 28 May 2015

Yesterday it was all about the reds (would you dare?!) and today this Danish space is singing the blues. Located in  Østerbro, an area in the heart of Copenhagen, the 100 metre square apartment belongs to Sorella and her family. They have kept the look fairly minimalist but with some wonderful features - for example, the over-sized industrial pendant lamp in the dining area makes a statement in an otherwise pared-back space (try Etsy), Hay cushions have been used to create a reading corner in the sitting room and a set of three Tom Dixon Etch pendants make a feature of the corner of the room. I would love to hangout in this calm space today, how about you?

Such a lovely, calm space. And just how beautiful are the original word floors?

Other items I know and love: Muuto Around coffee tables, Rosendahl monkey, Tom Dixon beat light tall (in hallway) and Simone Star elephant cushion.

Are you a fan of blue? If you'd like to take a peek into other homes with a hint you might like these two blue kitchens (do you prefer the lighter or darker?), the combination of blue and cognac in this space and this pretty white, blue and wood themed Swedish apartment.

Have a wonderful day!


A home with red floors - with surprising results!

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

It's not often you come across a home with bright red floors throughout, even in Holland where there's a general love of vibrant pops of colour (alla this and this home). I was sceptical I must say, but when I took the tour of the home (beautifully captured by Holly and Jansje) I was pleasantly surprised. Owners Sanne (an industrial designer) and Tim (an architect), bought this lovely space by the sea in The Hague back in 2013 and set about renovating it one design move at a time. They've filled the house with vintage treasures and upcycled furniture collected over the years (the shelves in the sitting room are made from reclaimed stair treads!) as well as the odd modern find. The result is a relaxed, eclectic and vibrant family home. Let's take a tour...

Wow! What a lovely home. I love the quirky touches and blend of old and new. And of course their cute children!

And what did you make of the painted red floor?

I had the pleasure of meeting Holly and Jansje when they came to photograph my home last year. Such a talented duo! Other spaces shot By Jansje include Tina Fussell's lovely Danish home (also styled by Holly) and a Dutch home in a former children's nursery.

If you fancy a little more beautiful Dutch inspiration today, there's also a whole archive to explore here (scroll passed the first one as it might be this home), I do love a dose of Dutch style, don't you?

Have a lovely day!



Small space - big monochrome heart

Tuesday, 26 May 2015

Today I'm taking my inspiration from this small space in Gothenburg, Sweden. Black, white and plenty of plants. Such a simple combination and yet so striking. I particularly love the dining area which is awash with natural sunlight and fresh flowers. I could wile away a day here, how about you?

Lovely! I do love my black and white homes, how about you? 

A few items I know and love - the Vitra wire chair is similar, HAY Bella table, THE POSTER CLUB sells many of these prints. The golden bell light is similar to the brass one in the dining space. 

Have a wonderful day!
