A space in New Zealand with a warm, boho summer vibe

Wednesday, 18 January 2017

Now I'd love to say that I find these dark, grey, cold January days here in Southern Sweden cosy. But sometimes they really can get the better of me and I'm starting to wonder if the sun actually still exists?!! On days like today I find escaping (virtually) to warmer, far off place helps to lift the spirits - how about you? Somewhere like this wonderful space in New Zealand, home to concept store Indie Home Collective. Think woven rattan, rustic wood, and layers of warm, natural materials against a dramatic backdrop of white, black and concrete. Roll on boho summer vibes!

Ah so lovely. I can practically feel the warm breeze through the window, how about you?

Many of the items you see are available at Indie Home Collective (what a beautiful store?!).

I also love the boho-Scandi style seen in this Norwegian home of Vintage Piken. And if you're now in the mood, you can find 28 more beautiful boho home tours from all over the world in this archive. Oh yes! Is this your kind of style?

Have a wonderful day! Oh and fellow Northern 'hemispherers' (is there an official name for people who live in the Northern hemisphere?!) - stay warm!

PS This is not a sponsored post, I just found the pictures truly inspiring and hope you did too!


A beautiful, laid back home in earthy tones

Tuesday, 17 January 2017

When selecting locations for The Scandinavian Home, I looked out for spaces that had a unique, strong consistent theme throughout - whether in the form of colour, style, material, texture and even a feeling. Although not featured in my book, this cottage belonging to artist and owner of fab lifestyle shop, General Store, Serena Mitnik-Miller in Topanga Canyon, California is a beautiful example of this! Formerly a hunting lodge, Serena and husband Mason stripped back the one bedroom house to its bare bones before furnishing it with a beautiful mix of mid-century finds and items made by friends in lovely earthy tones. What a stunning, laid back family home?!

How beautiful?! I absolutely love everything about it. How about you?

I've actually been following Serena on Instagram and at #OurTopangaHome for a while now (so worth taking a look)! You can also read the full article and see more lovely pictures of Serena's home over at one of my favourite magazines - Domino.

Many of the items you see can be found in General Store.

Have a wonderful day!
