IKEA has released their news coming to sale in February and there are some things I’m particulary excited about, for example this flexible and minimalist looking Eket storage system seen above. To keep things organized and home clutter free some great storage is a must and often times it’s hard to find budget friendly options that would look stylish and that could be adjusted to ones needs. Shelves, cabinets and drawers can be combined in many ways to achieve the desired look. There seem to be also some great accessories available to organize smaller things on the shelves.
Two new kitchen designs will be also available starting from February – blond wood Askerud for lighter option and darker Kungsbacka designed by famous swedish design studio From Us With Love.
Lastly, new bedding frame from Nordli series will have drawers under the bed – perfect for smaller bedrooms in need for extra storage space. But what really caught me in this last picture is the deep dark green wall in combination with beige linen bedding!
Almost two weeks of this new year have flown by and it seems quite late to wish you a happy new year, but I will do it regardless… I wish this new year will have plenty of wonderful things waiting for you, that light and good thoughts will guide you and you will have plenty of time to stop and look around, reflect and take time for what is most important and what you really like to do.
Christmas is approaching and while we are still waiting until the next weekend to bring in the tree I have started adding some subtle Christmas decorations here and there. When it comes to setting home holiday ready I like to keep things simple and not overdo it – some evergreen branches, cones and a few decor items are enough for me to bring the feeling in. This year I found some really nice golden accessories from H&M Home that give instantly festive look to any room. And the good thing is that apart from Christmas hangings all these items can be used also beyond the holiday season!
This modern Scandinavian style apartment is a display home in suburban part of Stockholm styled by talented Marie Ramse for JM. Sand tones and fray-green match perfectly and combined with lots of white give the space light and warm feel.
One of my favourite magazines Kinfolk has moved their headquarters from Portland to central Copenhagen and these photos above are from their new office and gallery designed by Danish studio Norm Architects.
With mixes Scandinavian and Japanese design, interior architecture is minimalist, harmonious with natural feel in accordance with Kinfolks credo of slow living. Wood together with warm sandy-tones creates home like environment that should be very comfortable to work in and is also welcoming and inviting to the guests. I am really happy with the current situation of working from home, but I wouldn’t mind having an office space like that.

Some time ago I posted a few pictures of my living room with a my photo of raindrops on a window hanging on the wall and got huge amount of emails asking where this photo is from and how it can be bought. Since I still get these emails I thought it would be more convenient to open my own little shop where anyone interested can get it quickly. Rainy Day comes in two different sizes, 50 x 70 cm or 30 x 40 cm and is printed on high quality photo paper. If you are interested in a different size please contact me directly. I am soon adding some more prints there, please be patient :)
I always find it very hard to post something new if the previous update here has been so long time ago.. I don’t know where this month went so fast, maybe I was too busy with real interior projects and therefore had less time to post on the blog.
Anyway, this moody and dark and stylish place found in this month’s Residence broke the silence here. It’s a new apartment of Swedish super-stylist Lotta Agaton who’s work is a constant inspiration for me. Her previous apartment, which I shared here, was decorated in much lighter colours. The shift from lighter tones to darker shades is really dominant in Scandinavian style right now and this place is an extreme example of it.
This dream house is located near Malmö, Sweden and it looks rather perfect to me if you ask.
Home owners wanted to create a calm oasis surrounded by nature giving the feeling of inner peace and harmony. Color scheme is calm and neutral and material choices are natural: massive wooden doors and built-in storage, plastered walls, polished terrazzo floors, linen textiles. Big windows blur the boundaries between inside and outside and help interior to look bigger.
I try to credit the source of the photos I use, but if you notice I have made a mistake or you are not happy with me using your photo feel free to let me know.
