Copenhagen-based artist Silke Bonde has released new watercolor collection Under Water consisting of three art prints Melt, Stripe and Dot. The collection was inspired by diving trips where she fell in love with the beautiful new world she met beneath the surface. She says “The new “Under water collection” is inspired by the shapes, patterns and structures you find under the sea. They are all made with watercolours to reflect the organic shapes and the floating life. When you dive under the surface the red colour is the first one to disappear. The blue is the last one.”

I’m lucky to have one of these beautiful art prints and I must admit that I fell in love with it as soon as I received it. The shades used are really pretty and it brings lovely spring vibe into my otherwise quite monochrome home.

I have always loved chunky knits, both as clothing pieces and as  interior accessories, so I am really happy owning one now from Ohhio.
Ohhio is an Ukraine-based design studio focused on creating hand-made goods for customers who value individuality, honest materials and high quality. The idea behind Ohhio was born when its founder Ukrainian designer Anna Marinenko found herself confronted with a spool of gigantically thick wool. She wanted to make something out of it, but as she didn’t have suitable knitting needles for that task she started knitting with her bare hands. The result was a blanket with gigantic stitches and as she loved its aesthetic so much she ordered more wool. Today all Ohhio pieces are hand knitted with bare hands.

Ohhio has been highly inspired by Nordic culture and lifestyle. Products made by hand from honest and natural material – Australian merino wool – are perfectly in accordance with the concept of slow living and their simple, clean and laconic designs reflect the love for minimalism.

Needless to say, I really love my Ohhio blanket –  it’s luxuriously soft and warm to sit on or wrap around. With its over-sized stitches Ohhio blankets add so much texture wherever used for decorating. It is definitely a statement piece and perfect for creating warm and cozy feeling in a room. In addition to all of that I think that this extreme knit blanket is really photogenic – I love to use it for styling and it looks so good on photos, don’t you agree?

I love those industrial looking black steel-framed windows and doors connecting rooms and framing views to garden. And that kitchen… !

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.
 
Thank you Kasia for sharing your home and thoughts! For more inspiration visit her blog My Full House or her Instagram feed.

DIY splatter Easter eggs

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.

Wishing you all Happy Easter!

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.

This home is featured in the latest issue of Residence magazine.

Last time I talked here how much I loved My Residence bookazine and one of my favorite interiors from there was definitely a little apartment of Josefin Hååg and her wife. So today when I saw on Josefin’s Instagram feed that their apartment is on sale via Fantastic Frank I immediately clicked over there to see the latest photos of this lovely home.

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!
