The beautiful workspace of an interior designer

Thursday, 25 August 2016

The beauty of blogging is that it often takes me to new and wonderful places. Last week I found myself in the home office of interior designer Genevieve Jorn (see her previous apartment here). Originally from Canada, Gen lives with her Danish husband Kasper and cute little daughter Olivia in an old apartment in the centre of Malmö, Sweden. As you can imagine, the space was so inspiring with high ceilings, a dark green accent wall and double french doors leading out to a roof terrace (imagine?!).  Gen agreed it would be the perfect room to add some pieces from Nordal - a wonderful Danish online shop offering a unique range of furniture and decor 'with attitude' (remember this feature from my own dining room?). Here's the result....

Oh how I'd love to work here, how about you?

Get the look from Gen's office:

1. Chest of 9 drawers 2. Candle holder  3. Downtown chair  4. Canvas carpet 5. Old school table lamp

For more work space inspiration you might want to check out the creative studio of Katrin Bååth, Holly Marder's workspace and the Brooklyn home and studio of a creative duo. Yes, people work in spaces like these! Guh! 

Do you have a beautiful home office too? If so, you must get in touch! 

Have a lovely day!

The Caribbean beach house

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

There's something about island life isn't there? The nearness to water. The relaxed vibe. One day I dream of owning a little island home to call my own. In fact, one not unlike the photographer Anita Calero's. Anita's beach house just happens to be in the Caribbean (guh?!) and features white washed beams and a pared-back look with lovely natural materials, not to mention a large terrace for long lunches and evenings alfresco. What a perfect place to unwind?

I could definitely spend my holidays here, how about you?!

Other hide-aways I'm dreaming about today: this Greek island getaway, Amelia Widell's idyllic Swedish island home, an ethereal beach house on St Barths and an Australian beach house with a retro vibe.  Oh the places we could go!

Here's a little more exotic link love:

These tropical ice pops.

Instant download palm tree print.  Palm leaf pencil case. Tropical cushion / pillow.

10 caribbean islands you have to visit. Have you been to any of these? I've got my eye on Harbour island (inspired by Annika Von Holdt!).

The ocean

This swing over the ocean (sigh)

Have a lovely *relaxed* day!
