A Swedish home in calming green

Monday, 24 April 2017

Hello! Monday? Again? It really has been a case of - Friday *blink* Monday?! The entire weekend has been a bit of a blur except for a wonderful picnic in Rövearekulan national park  - so nice! Did you get up to anything fun? I thought I'd roll the 'green theme' onto to Monday and share this lovely Swedish home with you. The space has been decorated in a mix of calm earthy green tones and crisp white, with natural touches such as cotton, linen, wood and leather adding a warm and inviting feel. Above all else though - I'm looking at all that light (I've become a little obsessed since reading that if you sit next to a window to work you can boost your productivity by up to 15% - so glad I fought for that window sit in the open-plan office I used to work in now! - do you sit by a window?). I'm also eyeing up those beautiful young oak tree saplings.... so simple, yet so lovely!

What a lovely apartment?! 

The clothes rail in the bedroom is great (I feel more relaxed in the knowledge that there's a wall-to-wall wardrobe opposite so this is merely for tomorrow's outfit or favourite pieces!). Ferm Living sells one similar here. Loving the light twisted around the end, such a nice touch!

Is there anything that caught your eye?

A few items I know and love: lamp by house doctor, try The Poster Club for similar prints, Lampe gras floor lamp, feather duster.

Have a great start to the week!

A home with pretty pastels and inspiring details

Friday, 21 April 2017

Is there no end to the talent on Instagram? A few minutes scroll last night turned into an hour long session as I went from inspiring feed, to inspiring feed (cue double coffee morning today!). One of my new favourites of which is @Wunderblumen. Daniela regularly updates her feed with inspiring snapshots of her half-timbered house in Kassel, North Germany, which she shares with her husband Stefan and their three children and cat, Polly. As well as beautiful style updates for children and adults alike (check out this cute spring outfit for starters!) snapshots of her home reveal soft pastel hues, vintage finds, pretty floral touches and inspiring details. Here's a sneak peek...

Such a beautiful home, don't you think?

I particularly love the painting of the girl on the sitting room wall. It's by an artist from the Faroe islands (available here). I was also excited to see Daniela has the same brass mobile as me (which I've hung here) - great minds...! And of course, the soft pastel touches.

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look from Daniela's home (in order of appearance): brass mobile, source a beautiful mid-century credenza here, art, the light blue wall colour is by Farrow & Ball. The ceramic wreath seen on the wall above the dining table and bed is handmade by Kat's (great shop!). Wallpaper by Sandberg. Children's dress from Kids on the moon.

Such a perfect home tour to wrap up the week, don't you think? But if you'd like to hang around for a while and more homes with a pastel touch you can always nip over to this archive (if this home comes up first just scroll passed). Yes, I have an archive for everything!

Thank you so much again for all the positive feedback around my new book, it's made all those nights burning the midnight oil worthwhile. I was also thrilled to see it appear in the home of TDC and @aboutthishaus as well as many other of my favourite bloggers and instagrammers and in newspaper and magazines including The Sunday Times, Home and Garden and Marie Claire UK - to name but a few! *feeling humbled*.

I think I'll be kicking off the weekend with one of these - Skål på er!

Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?

Have a wonderful couple of days and see you Monday!
