Mint hues in interiors

May 31, 2012

It seems that in this spring mint hues are everywhere and of course interiors are no exception. So here is a selection of interiors which have mint hues in their color palette – from muted mint to very bright hues of mint. Enjoy!

I’d like to hear what is your opinion on using mint in interiors … do you like it or not? :)

Inspirational photos with summer feeling

May 30, 2012

I love these pictures recently posted on IKEA Livet Hemma blog – lovely colors, great styling and most importantly the fresh summer feeling that is captured on these photos!

As for summer feeling – I don’t have that at the moment because it has rained all day and temperature is below 10°C… Very not-summery. How about weather at your place?

A colorful Scandinavian home

May 28, 2012

Let’s give this new week a colorful start with a happy and bright home in Sweden! The owner of this home has a vintage furniture shop and you can find many vintage accessories also in her own home.

I like the welcoming yellow front door and the yellow bench in the entrance and the splashes of red in the living room. Which are the things that caught your eye on these pictures?

A perfect reading nook

May 26, 2012

Finally it’s weekend! I have several magazines waiting for reading and since it is little bit rainy outside I plan to spend some relaxing hours reading and drinking tea … I’ll do it on my couch, but if I had more space in my home I would like to have a corner designed specially for reading.

I think that a lot of natural light is essential for the perfect reading nook and a beautiful view from the window would be an extra bonus! Which is your favorite place for the reading?

Have a relaxing weekend!

A beautiful home in Sweden

May 23, 2012

Today I’m inspired by a beautiful home in Gotland which I found via IKEA Family Live. In this home modern aesthetics is combined with homely warmth so that the result is light and bright and cozy. Enjoy!The fireplace and lots of pillows make this living room so relaxing …

I like the idea of two-sided work space in the hallway and the headboard made of old wood fits perfectly into this bedroom, don’t you think? :)

Bedroom skylights

May 19, 2012

The last picture is little bit out of the bedroom skylight topic, but somehow the window in this room seemed to be a skylight (before I looked the room more carefully) :) This bedroom has a lovely combination of white and kelly green and I can almost feel the breeze from the open window/door… Which of these is the one you would like to take a nap in?

I hope you have a relaxing weekend and you can sleep as much as you wish! :)

A modern farmhouse in South Carolina

May 14, 2012

This week starts with some pictures of a gorgeous modern farmhouse – thanks to the wonderful My Scandinavian Home blog for sharing!:)

I think that these flower on the table make this first picture my favorite! So pretty…

What a great light from these big windows! I’m sure I would love the view of surrounding nature while reading in the armchair…

There are so many things I like about this home, for example the cream white wooden walls, linen fabrics, abundance of light and the combination of rustic and industrial design elements with modern cottage style. And of course the flower arrangements you can find in almost every room!

Nordic style in a Danish home

May 9, 2012

Today it was a really sunny weather here in Estonia and therefore I’ll take you for a visit to a really sunny apartment near Copenhagen. I really like this nordic design style used to decorate these rooms – so much light and space and natural colors. And of course family pet Stampe who can be seen on the first and on the last picture :)
