Blue is a real big trend in interior design right now and tableware is no exception. We can see deep indigo tones and inky shades of blue both as patterns and as a solid colours on dinnerware from various brands. Updating your tableware collection with only just some pieces of new ceramics is a easy and affordable way to bring blue trend also to your kitchen and dining room. Here are some of my finds.
Beautiful tableware Nordic Sea from Broste Copenhagen. It’s soft shades of greyish blue with organic patterns and texture are just divine!
This little 36m2 one room (+ kitchen) apartment in Stockholm is a perfect example of how to fit living room, bedroom and home office into one room without the result looking too crowded. The key here is to keep consistent style and colour palette in all zones of the room, so that the entire space feels harmonious, cozy and stylish. There is also a built-in wardrobe in this apartment that helps to keep all things organised so that it would be easier to keep the clutter away – really important with such a small living. Decorated with a clever mix of IKEA finds and designer pieces (for example white Menu Afteroom chair in office corner and Hay DLM coffee table), this little apartment is a beautiful representation of modern Scandinavian style.
As a contrast to the previous post of black kitchen, here is one gorgeous apartment in Gothenburg with all white kitchen. Typing it while the low and bright spring sun is pouring in from my windows I can only imagine how bright this space feels when the sun is shining – white walls, white cabinets, white painted floors and big windows! Maybe not the most practical choices for everyday life, but definitely looks fabulous on the photos. This apartment has a nice round built-in office corner with a iconic Jacobsen Series 7 swivel chair and Bestlite table lamp.
Love that black minimalist kitchen with huge windows. The great view from the windows and green plants on the kitchen counter diminish the border between outdoors and indoors. The window seat in the corner and the fireplace are also nice additions in this kitchen space.
A few days ago I had time to rearrange the String shelf in our living room and I thought it was a good time to document how our sofa corner currently looks like. I don’t know if it’s because this shelf is almost the only surface in the living room our little one can’t reach, but it tends to clutter up very quickly…
As I thought, the new print from One Must Dash, which was in our bedroom a few weeks ago looks gorgeous also on the living room wall. I plan to add some more prints above the sofa as well to create a picture wall, but knowing myself it will take some time to choose the pieces to display and decide the layout.
P.S. I tend to get a lot of questions about our wall shelving unit through my Instagram account, so for those of you wondering the same thing right now – it’s the String shelf and I got mine from Finnish Design Shop. There are still some days left to the end of their campaign where they offer -15% off from all white String shelving units. I’m tempted to extend our shelf to the floor, but at the same time I know that this free space under the shelf is a really good spot for an occasional side table or stack of IKEA stools as seen on the photos above.
Some really nice shots from the home of Swedish calligrapher Ylva Skarp. This place is a perfect mix of different styles (Scandinavian, rustic, industrial, modern), textures and materials, brought beautifully together by monochrome color palette of black, white and grey with lots of raw wood. What makes this home really personal is her artwork that can be seen throughout the interior. For me it’s a perfect example of how to incorporate lots of art into the decor without it feeling too much.
If you want to see how her home looked like two years ago during Christmas time take a look here.
Love everything about these photos styled by Gitte Christensen and captured by Pia Winther. Light, colours, mood, styling – everything is perfect! And of course this good looking Hario V60 ceramic coffee dripper with glass coffee server and stylish Hario Buono kettle currently seen on so many interior and lifestyle photos (and no wonder, it does look pretty!).
Now take some time and enjoy your slow coffee moment… :)
This is a Sato new built apartment in Helsinki, styled by Susanna Vento together with Pinja Forsman ja Carolinavd. After seeing the glimpses of this apartment via Susanna’s Instagram feed I was looking forward to see the final result and I didn’t have to disappoint! Susanna’s minimal and warm style shines through in every room. She has selected some really nice designer furniture pieces and accessories for this project. To track them down there is a complete list on her website, but as I really loved putting together the ‘get the look’ collage for yesterday’s post, I selected some of my favorite pieces also from this apartment.
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.
