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?

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! ;)

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!

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 :)

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….

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.

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 :)

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 feels surrounding the home feels present also inside the house. Interior is in calm tones, with white, grey and black as the base. Sheepskins, paper decorations, candles, pine cones and twigs make it feel cozy and ready for the winter holidays…

Hello, dear readers! It’s almost a week from my last post here… sorry about that, but it has been quite busy and also exciting time recently and this blog hasn’t got as much attention as it should have :)
But today I came across this modern, light and spacious home via La maison d’Anna G. and felt I want to share some of my favorite images of that house. To be honest, I think that this home is even little bit too spacious and modern to be my ideal home, but it still has many features I like. For example the corner in the living room with two chaise longues and a fireplace… perfect! :) And I like the overall relaxed look and the neutral color scheme of this house.
