Hello Wednesday! Where did Tuesday and Monday go so fast?!

This charming renovated Scandinavian home with a hint of industrial feeling is my today’s favorite. Decorated with IKEA pieces, flea market finds and designer items, it has a welcoming and lived in feeling. The office corner of this home has caught my eye before – I love the styling of the IKEA Gällö shelf and the space below it! And this grey wall in the bedroom reminds me again that maybe I should try grey also in my bedroom… The owners of this house say that at the beginning they were afraid to chose wrong colors and materials, but now they look at their home like it was their playground and a place for experimenting. Wise words, that I should remind myself when thinking too long about changes in my home!

Scandinavian family home with pops of colour

May 16, 2013

For a beautiful sunny day like today I have one renovated Scandinavian family home to share. It’s black and white with lots of colorful details and bold graphical patterns. And as it’s Scandinavian home it doesn’t come as a surprise that it’s full on light! The kitchen with the orange Kartell FL/Y pendant and yellow cupboard is especially sunny, don’t you think?

Relaxed, light, Scandinavian

April 8, 2013

I saw that home over The Design Files some days ago and I liked it from the very first picture: it’s light, it’s modern+vintage finds, it’s simple and natural and it has many  beautiful home accessories and knick knacks. I especially love the “Disc pendant” by Toss B hanging over the dining table – so simple yet so impressive!

This renovated 1970′s timber home belongs to Simone Haag and Rhys Haag, who turned an out-dated and dark house into a Scandi-styled perfection just in 3 months. It’s hard to believe it – it could easily take an entire month for me just to choose the right dining table for my home! ;)

Colorful home to celebrate the arrival of spring!

March 22, 2013

Spring has arrived although it’s hard to believe that when looking the temperatures outside: -10 degrees (at night it was almost -20!) and cold wind… brrr! But it’s rather nice when sitting inside and looking it through the window – sun is shining and the white snow is glittering.

To celebrate the official start of the spring I have one light and bright and colorful home to share. Jane Foster, who lives there with her family, is a textile designer, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that textiles are a key in this home decor. And these textiles are really colorful and happy! White walls and furniture provide an ideal background for bright colors so that the overall look seems cheerful and not at all too overwhelming.

Open, bright and minimalistic apartment

March 19, 2013

I hope your week has had a great start, mine has been quite busy so far – I’m taking some interior design classes right now and we have a lot of homework to do! :) Besides that there is another Big Project going on in my life right now (I think it deserves an extra-post somewhere in the near future), so I hope you don’t mind if you have to wait new posts a little bit longer ;)

Today’s eye candy is the home of two ballet dancers (yet another creative people with a fabulous home!). The large open-plan space is divided into kitchen, dining and living room area so that the overall look remains simple and minimal. I like how the wooden furniture brings a life into the white space… One great example is the wooden dining table on the background of white modern kitchen (second picture) – perfect combination!

Black and white home of an interior photographer

March 11, 2013

Do you agree that it seems like people with creative professions tend to have absolutely fabulous homes? For me, it does. Well, here is another good example to support my theory… This calm and monochrome home belongs to an interior photographer Mette Wotkjær. My favorite thing from this home is the cozy sofa with By Nord cushions and a great photo wall above that – monochrome, but so rich in details that it almost feels like colorful :)

Airy Scandinavian home with pops of colour

March 5, 2013

I came across this beautiful Scandinavian home few days ago and today I have finally enough time to share it also with you, my dear readers :)

This home looks really airy and spacious, despite that it has actually only 110 square meters. One thing contributing to the feeling of spaciousness is definitely the use of vertical lines in the interior: narrow and tall windows and the black fireplace between them; ceiling is covered with vertical white stained pine panels and even the long red cords of Caravaggio pendants contribute to the look….

Stylish Danish apartment

February 17, 2013

I know that I have shared some pictures of the home of Hanne Berzant (who is a designer and owner of a gorgeous Danish brand By Nord) before, but I guarantee you that these photos are from completely different angle and you can find many differences. At first, I didn’t even realise that this was the same apartment!

The combination of muted colors and untreated floorboards creates warm and natural look in this turn-of-the-century home. There are many designer pieces in these pictures which are listed in the original article, my favorite from this selection is Hans Wegner’s CH008 coffee table.

House styled by Lotta Agaton

January 10, 2013

Today I came across a beautiful modern house styled by Lotta Agaton. I almost promised to myself after the last post that the next post will be more colorful, but when I saw these pictures I changed my mind :) My favorite is the kids room where grey is used together with turquoise – I like that combination nearly as much I like turquoise with white and turquoise with brown :)

Winter holidays in Ylva Skarp home

November 12, 2012

If you spend as much time looking at design blogs as I do you have probably already seen the gorgeous pictures of Christmas mood in designer and calligrapher Ylva Skarp home. Since I really like the cozy and simple look of this home I must share it also here :) I like how the nature surrounding the home feels present also inside the house. Interior is in calm tones, with white, grey and black as a base. Sheepskins, paper decorations, candles, pine cones and twigs make it feel cozy and ready for winter holidays…
