One good thing that always comes with the new year is release of many spring/summer collections, so it’s a really exciting time for design lovers! One of the brands who’s new catalogues are always worth to be waiting for is House Doctor and I’m happy to announce that their new Everyday collection is now out. The new catalogue is packed with many very nice products and inspirational photos, take a look at it here!
I hope you are all well rested and full of energy after long holidays and ready to give a great start to this new year. Since I’m first time here this year I want to take a moment now and wish you all a very happy new year – may it be filled with everything you feel like you are missing in your life right now! :)
As I took a quite long break from the blog during the holidays, today’s post will be a bit longer than usual – I want to share with you one beautiful Nordic apartment I came across during the weekend and also say a proper good bye to the last year by highlighting one of my most favorite posts from each month from 2014. I did something similar last year and I enjoyed looking back to the year and discovering photos I had already forgot. I hope you’ll like it too!
First, one beautiful apartment from Stadshem with lots of bright white paint and lovely details – tanned leather chair, light blue SMEG fridge, reading nook by the window, and combination of rustic wooden table with Thonet chairs and a brass pendant to name just a few things I like about this little home.
And now some posts from the last year I’d like to highlight:
This year I feel like the Christmas is coming closer too fast – can’t believe it’ll be already third advent this Sunday! I don’t know if I could blame the quite warm weather and lack of snow or a bit too busy times I have right now, but I can’t say that I’ve got the right Christmas feeling… Fortunately I have two more weeks to change that thing :)
These lovely photos I found during my last session of searching Christmas feeling online (sometimes it helps!) are styled by Emma Wallmén and photographed by Anna Malmberg. Natural and simple, not too christmassy, but cozy enough to plant a little seed of Christmas feeling for me :)
This apartment styled by Lotta Agaton and photographed by Pia Ulin has a perfect moody color palette and I’m in love with the furniture and details used to decorate this home. I have written before about using simple bracket shelves in living room and here is another great example how a basic shelving usually seen in wardrobes is combined with a rustic wooden table and beautiful chairs in a dining room.
So this is it – my first Christmas themed post this year!
We are still one weekend away from the First Advent, but I think it’s the last time to start thinking about how to display the advent candles this year so here are some examples. As you see it’s not always necessary to do something very christmassy to get the feeling, sometimes it’s enough to use only a beautiful candleholder(s) for four candles and add a branch or some cones and this is it!
Perfect colour palette and perfect mood in this living room styled by Pella Hedeby and Marie Ramse, photographed by Sara Danielsson. Love how the tanned leather sofa and other warm brown details add coziness to the otherwise monochrome colour palette of black, white and greys. Adding some soft textiles and a simple bare branch in a big glass vase makes this place perfect to me!
These two new Bonum apartments are styled and photographed by talented Daniella Witte, who’s own home I have shown you here and here. I think she really has a talent for creating cozy and inviting interiors – these two seem so lived-in despite being completely new spaces.
This light-filled two level apartment is definitely my favorite find of this week. High ceilings and large windows make the space look airy and bigger than it actually is (62 square meters). And should I say that I just love the calm and neutral color palette used to decorate this apartment or you already know it? :)
Here are some of my favorite shots from my Instagram feed in October. We have already lived in November for some days now, but I think it’s not too late to officially say hello to new month!
And I want to apologize if you don’t find new posts here as often as you are used to – it’s just this time right now when I find a little bit hard to keep up with everything going on… :)
Three gorgeous bedrooms that have caught my eye lately. The first one is from Nettanatalias blog – I like the idea of using Menu Yeh Wall Table as a bedside table and the cozy feeling those dark bedroom textiles give that space. The second one is from gorgeous Ale Besso blog – simple and fresh, yet so cozy! I’m still so much into wrinkled linen bedding and this one here is no exception. In this bedroom Hay Bella coffee table is used as a bedside table and it fits in perfectly! The last one is from Nordic Leaves – stunning mix of different textures and patterns, just love it! Again as with previous bedrooms, a little side table is used as a bedside table, this time it’s Mini 0 table from OX Denmarq with graphic black steel legs and marble top. Love it!
