This gorgeous bedroom with an open wardrobe belongs to an interior and design journalist, writer and stylist Holly Marder. I love the soft and neutral color scheme in this room and the cosy feeling she has created. Visit her blog to see more photos (including the before shots of this room, I promise you that the change is amazing!) and to read her interesting story about the bedroom makeover.

Light filled home with simple decor

May 10, 2013

This light filled Scandinavian style home with simple decor and clean lines is my today’s favorite. Colors are also kept neutral: white, black, grey, brown, beige. Calm and beautiful.

Big news

April 19, 2013

Dear readers,

Sorry for my absence for so long time, I think this is the longest gap between posts within the year I have been blogging. Todays post is little more personal than usually, because I have something going on I want to share with you :) A month ago I mentioned that I have one Big Project that deserves an extra post and today I’m happy to reveal that this Big Project is a little baby boy who is expected to arrive in the second half of May :) So only with a month to go I have been super-busy arranging things and completing things from my Things-to-do-before-the-baby list (and believe me, this list is really-really long… ) and it’s the reason why there haven’t been so many new posts lately. So now you know (even if some of you already knew through “personal communications”) :)

P.S. These two rolls of yarn are still waiting to be transformed into something beautiful… I’ll take some time for that. Soon :)

Relaxed, light, Scandinavian

April 8, 2013

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! ;)

Monday’s inspiration

December 10, 2012

Some random favorites of late for this Monday. Again muted colors, I know, just can’t help it :) The bedroom on the last image is especially gorgeous – the light coming from windows, colors and the beige textured rug.

Natural colors and white

December 4, 2012

Today I like this home in Sweden, especially the combination of white with darker natural colors in that living room. And of course the spacious and airy bedroom with large windows!

Winter holidays in Ylva Skarp home

November 12, 2012

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

Inspiration from Bodie and Fou webshop

October 30, 2012

Have you seen a new Bodie and Fou catalogue? It’s full of lovely products and inspiring images! Their product shots are so well styled that it is just a pure joy to look around their catalogue and also web-shop. I think it adds so much value to a product when I can see it “in action” :)

I chose some of my favorite images from their webshop to share with you, but I recommend that you definitely check them out yourself – so much beauty and so much inspiration!

An apartment with sloped ceiling

October 22, 2012

I hope your weekend was great and you are happy to welcome another new week!  Also, I want to say hello to all new readers who have stopped by, so happy you are here :)

For today I have an apartment to show you, which has sloped ceiling, lots of contrasts and different tones of grey in decor. I like to scrutinise nicely decorated apartments with sloped ceiling whenever I see the one, since we live also in an apartment with sloped ceiling in living room and in the kitchen. So I have a special personal interest in rooms with sloped ceiling:) I hope that you’ll also find something you like about this apartment!
