A small space in Gothenburg in neutrals

Wednesday, 4 March 2015

Let's visit the Swedish west coast today and this charming space-efficient small apartment in Gothenburg. The home has many of the lovely original 1920's features including wooden floor, serving cabinets and pantry. But I also like the way it's been decorated using neutrals, dusty shades of blue and touches of wood and rattan for a warm feel. I'm a big fan of Gothenburg since it's the gateway to one of my favourite places on earth: the stunning west coast archipelago with its dozens of islands and pretty fishing villages. We love to explore it by sail boat in the summer. But in the winter, I could definitely pad around here, how about you?!


Is there anything that stands out to you about this apartment?

I'm a big fan of the brass pendant over the dining table (this one is similar). Rattan is trending right now too- are you a fan? I've got a peacock chair in my bedroom which I love (they're often coming up on Etsy), do you have anything rattan in your home?

More beautiful small space inspiration can be found here. It's amazing what you can do with a little imagination.

Have a lovely day!

A danish home with beautiful objects and sleeping cat

Tuesday, 3 March 2015

One of the loveliest homes in Denmark has to be that of Tine Kjeldsen & Jacob Fossum, owner of Danish homewares brand Tine K Home, and their three children Klara, Tilde and Konrad.  The 19th century home on the island of Funin reflects Tine's passion for  beautiful objects, lovely memories, different cultures and interesting stories. Handmade pieces and charming objects from the Tine K Home collection can be seen throughout the home and have been combined with a Scandinavian simplicity to create a serene, warm, relaxed home - the perfect place for cat nap (do you spot him?!).

I've actually featured the home here before, but it's constantly updated so when I spotted these lovely images shot by Yvonne Wilhemsen I thought I'd better not keep them all to myself?!

The biggest addition in my eyes are the kilim rugs. I also like the half painted wall in the dining space. 

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the give-away to win a String Pocket. The winner has now been announced (drum roll....) here!

Have a lovely day!

Spring is in the air in this lovely Dutch home

Monday, 2 March 2015

I love March, to me it's a sign that the long Scandinavian winter is coming to an end. And what better way to celebrate than with a Dutch home full of the joys of spring?! Photographed by Margriet Hoekstra, this light-filled three-storey apartment in West Amsterdam is the result of a major renovation by Rick and Linsey. After a re-configuration, the pair furnished the space with fab industrial / vintage finds, modern units and plants and flowers in every room. What a perfect place which to kick off the week, don't you think?!

I love the way Rick and Linsey have used a variety of plants  - from freshly cut spring flowers to year round cactus and big-leafed plants.

For more plant and flower display inspiration I've squirreled away lots of lovely images on my Pinterest board and can recommend this fab book.

Is there anything that stands out to you about this home?

More pics and full article here (in Dutch - google translate, we heart you!).
