This is a beautiful home Kasia Rutkowiak of My Full House. Kasia was born in Poland, but spent most of her grown up life in Denmark where she fell in love with Scandinavian design and lifestyle. In 2014 she moved back to Poland and created Polish-Scandinavian home in Warsaw.
In addition to sharing the photos of her lovely home, Kasia kindly agreed to answer some questions too.
What are the 5 words that you think the best describe your home?
Crowded (laughing), else it surely is quite scandinavian, light, cosy and constantly changing.
What is your favourite spot or favourite piece of furniture in your home at the moment?
It’s difficult to say, as I love many spots in my home. The one I use the most is the workspace in the living room, arranged with the String system which is – if you ask me – one of the most brilliant ideas of all times. I am also in love with our Oliver Furniture glass cabinet. Love their furniture!
What are your favourite places for shopping things for your home? Any favourite webshops?
Living in Poland, I have limited access to the shops selling items coming from the brands that I know best, but I have accepted the challenge so this is not a complaint ;) I often use brands’ own websites for shopping, luckily most of them happily ships within the EU.
What is currently on your wish list for your home?
At the moment I am searching for some nice linen bedding for our bedroom.
What advice would you give to someone who starts decorating and wants to achieve the style similar to that in your home?
I guess that it would be to go after quality and neutral but long lasting versatility, rather than price and what’s hot here and now. Furniture that “grow” or expand without getting boring (vide String!), natural materials and light. Less really is more.
These monochrome splatter eggs are my favorite Easter decoration this year. Simple DIY project, although quite messy :) I made these eggs for decoration purposes only and used ink for splattering them, but I think one can do it with food colorings too so that they can be eaten afterwards.
Love the color palette and warm feeling of this dining room and bedroom. Different shades of beige, brown and muted hues combined beautifully with deep grayish blue – on the photo in dining room and as a wall color in bedroom.
Love the feeling of style and space in this gorgeous loft of one of my favourite photographers Pia Ulin. Formerly living in Stockholm she has now home in Brooklyn, New York. She renovated the whole space with help from architects Bangia Agostinho. The result is spacious and airy, modern and cozy, original and with very distinct style.
The whole apartment is only 20 m2, but it is very well planned and every square meter is used to maximum. Large window in combination with white walls and white-washed herringbone floor makes this little space airy and light and let’s it show larger than it actually is. I just love the color palette used – monochrome with some warm brown and neutrals gives this apartment really cozy feel. As Josefin is one really talented stylist it’s no wonder that this space is also styled to perfection! If there was only one thing I could highlight it would be the way how she has displayed art on the walls (I have featured it also in this picture wall inspiration post).
I have shared photos of Josefin’s apartment before here – there have been some changes in decorating and styling since then, both versions look stunning if you ask me!
It’s not usual for me to read a magazine from cover to cover, but I have almost done that with my new My Residence bookazine. It’s loaded with beautiful and inspiring photos of Swedish interiors and architecture presented by Residence Magazine throughout the year. Really nice companion for coffee breaks. The only bad thing is that as its an annual publication we need to wait another year before a new copy is released.
This part of the home of architect duo Annick Houle and Stephen O’Connor seen on the photos above acts as a beautiful example of how to blend indoor and outdoor living space. Huge black framed floor to ceiling windows let the space to get a lot of daylight and provide spectacular view to the terrace and garden. Part of the windows can be opened to extend the living room to the big terrace.
Art is such an important thing in home decor so I’m always happy to find something I like and that goes well with my aesthetics and style of my home – my new photo art print from Faces of Nepal collection definitely fits in perfectly!
Not only does the photos look beautiful in their simplicity, there’s also a deeper story behind them. Namely, Faces of Nepal is a charity project by German photographer Sophia Maier in collaboration with Posterlounge. The proceeds from the sale of her photos are donated to the initiative Hilfe für Nepal, which helps rebuild the country after the earthquake of 2015.
Faces of Nepal collection is sold by Posterlounge, an online shop for high-quality art prints, movie posters, modern illustrations and beautiful photography created by both contemporary and historical artists. They have really wide selection of wall art and no matter what art style you prefer you probably find something that fits in. The company is based in Leipzig and they ship worldwide.
I’m happy to announce that Posterlounge is giving away a photo print from Faces of Nepal collection to one of you, dear readers! Just write the name of your favorite photo from the collection in comments and you are in! The winner can choose the photo he or she would like to get. Giveaway is open worldwide and the winner will be announced here and on our Facebook page on 3rd March.

Tulips are one of my favourite spring flowers and bringing them home is like allowing the spring to move in bit by bit. Although most of the days are still quite dark and grey here, it’s so much more light around compared to the time a month ago. Today it’s so beautiful and sunny and it feels that spring is not far away any more (at least when staying inside where you don’t feel the cold wind).
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.
