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!
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.

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.
When Daniella Witte shared on her Instagram that her home is in the current issue of Swedish Elle Decoration I wanted to see it immediately. Unfortunately I didn’t have an access to the magazine so I had to wait until it was posted on their website and today was the day!
Daniella Witte lives in a renovated old horse farm near Malmö with her family. Their home is in constant change – I posted about her home over two years ago here and compared to that time the whole interior has got more darker look (which is so on trend in Scandinavian home decor right now). Beautifully balanced mix between old and new, designer pieces and vintage finds. Love it.
City map prints are currently really trendy and I’ve updated the wall behind the sofa with two elegant map posters from Encyclopaedia Urbana.
Encyclopaedia Urbana is a collection of over 200 stunning city articles in print format. Every print features a beautiful map along with interesting information about the city and at the bottom of every print there’s also a seal, which makes the print unique.

This is the perfect gift for someone who’s especially fond of some of the cities in the collection (or some other city, they do take custom requests), or for yourself if you want to make your home or office a little bit more stylish and interesting.
