A fab Swedish small space with different 'zones'

Thursday, 11 February 2016

Often one room apartments are decorated with the same scheme throughout - i.e. white walls and then touches of an accent colour - which is a great way of creating a cohesive space. But, as this fabulous studio apartment in Gothenburg shows, it's also great to mark out particular zones. Here, I absolutely love the cosy, cocoon effect of a dark wall in the bedroom area, and likewise the dining area is lovely and bright. Such a clever design for a small space, don't you think?

Entrance. Found via Coco Lapine with thanks.

Oooo, I love this apartment. I think the interior design is so clever!

Could you live here?

Get the look: Thonet side chair, this is a great source for prints, charcoal linen bedding, TURBO clothes rail. Try the Farrow & Ball dark range for a similar paint colour.

Other links I love today:

This steel staircase going up through the centre of a house in Tel Aviv is amazing!

Alexa Chung shoot by Tom Craig, 
Have you ever visited Merci in Paris? It's on my hit list for 2016. This interview with the owner is so interesting. 

Just how fabulous is this Australian home?

And finally, I'm loving the art deco touch in this bathroom with a double vanity (oh how I'd love to have my very own sink....!).

Have a lovely day! 

PS I was so happy to participate in a Q&A with Etsy about how to create Modern Rustic.

A calm white and blue 'oasis' in Malmö, Sweden

Wednesday, 10 February 2016

Hello! So sorry for the late post, it's been one of those days! I had such a wonderful evening last night to celebrate the launch of my book (feeling it a little today though I have to admit!). I'm nipping in to share a super fresh home here in Malmö,  which is currently for sale through Bjurfors, one of Sweden's largest and oldest estate agents. The space has been decorated throughout in fresh white and touches of blue and looks so calm and relaxed. I'd love to be padding around here, I think it'd clear my head in an instant, don't you?!


It's actually located high up in the eaves above one of Malmö's lovely main shopping streets - a little oasis of calm amongst the hustle and bustle. Perfect!

Could you see yourself padding around here?

A few items I know and love:  Smeg fridge, Beni ourain rug, these beautiful peacock blue velvet cushions are similar.

More white and blue themed homes include this wonderful danish apartment with industrial touches and a pretty white, blue and cognac Swedish space.

Have a lovely day!

PS thank you so much to Lou at Little Green Shed for this lovely post about Modern Pastoral.
