The romantic Marienlyst castle meets modern Danish design

Wednesday, 29 June 2016

I'm feeling inspired by dilapidated walls after my trip to Florence at the weekend. Which is probably why these beautiful images taken in Marienlyst Castle, just North of Copenhagen caught my eye (I love how sections of the paneling have been removed to reveal the original brickwork beneath). The Danish 'slot' formerly served as a royal pavilion for Kronborg Castle (think Shakespeare's 'Hamlet'). The monochrome interior is simple yet elegant with period features and original floors that give the entire space an oh so romantic feel, don't you think? No wonder Danish homewares brand Tine K Home chose it as a setting for their Autumn / Winter 2016 collection - which is inspired by the pale colours found in bouquets of flowers and greenery and how the hues change as they mature (*she sits there dreaming*). Oh the romance of it all. Enjoy!

Simply lovely! And such a mid-week treat?! 

Most of the items you see are from Tine K Home (visit the online shop here) and some exciting pieces from the forthcoming Autumn / Winter 2016 collection, which gives us all something to look forward to when the leaves start to fall?! You can also check-out the complete catalogue here.

Is there anything that caught your eye?

Other mid week links I love:

Rijksmuseum.ixxi thinks it's important that collections from prominent museums become accessible to the many. When you see this masterpiece in a cute children's bedroom I think you'll agree?! Pick up your own masterpiece here

This artichoke flower arrangement.

Bedside table inspiration.

Tonight's supper:  firey schezwan peanut and chilli zucchini noodles.

Pretty peach coloured house by the sea.  Imagine waking up here? And where I'd love to be right now.

Have a dreamy day

PS This was not a sponsored posts, I just loved the imagery and thought it had to be shared!

A monochrome apartment in Malmö with a little outdoor oasis

Tuesday, 28 June 2016

Hello! We're back from a lovely Swedish midsummer (and even managed to sneak in a few days to Florence (á deux!), an Italian city I've always dreamed of going to. What a beautiful place? Have you been? I'll miss the tranquil Florentine villa we stayed at too. Fortunately the sun is shining in Malmö too today so I thought it would be apt to pay homage to my home city with this fab apartment on Davidshalls torg - a lovely square in the centre of town. Originally from Southern Sweden, Carin & Christian were immediately drawn to the big windows and high ceilings of the late 19th century build. The open-plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area is also perfect for a couple who love to entertain. The apartment has been lovingly renovated and furnished over the space of three years with an industrial-style kitchen with plenty of workspace, and a monochrome scheme throughout, broken off by warm cognac leather armchairs.  Let's not forget the greenhouse in the communal garden for outdoor dining (you'd be forgiven for thinking you were in the countryside - what an oasis?!).....

On a cooler winter's day there's always time for a quick coffee by the window too! 

Oh and did I mention it's for sale...come and join us in Malmö?! 

Get the look: kitchen / dining - Lilla Åland chairs, string shelves, brush and scissors by Hay. Sitting room - Source leather cognac armchairs here - I love this one - although there's only one...(hurry?!) Kubus 4 candleholder. Outside - beige stonewashed linen tablecloth.

Greenhouses are truly having a moment. And such a great idea too - they're perfect for lunch and supper al fresco when it's slightly too nippy under the open-sky alone (or even pouring down with rain) - and you don't even need a backyard - a friend of mine has a beautiful one on her roof (must see if she'll let me photograph it one day?)!

I also like this greenhouse in the garden of a Swedish house overlooking a lake, a beautiful one I stumbled across on a recent visit to the Swedish island of Ven, and a greenhouse with beautiful floors.

Time to build one in your own backyard? 

Have a lovely day!
