Calm blue-green tones in a Swedish home

Tuesday, 23 August 2016

This Swedish apartment belonging to Emma Solveigsdotter is absolutely beautiful. Emma has used tones along a spectrum of blue-green to make every room different. The colour also cleverly enhances the period features which have been painted in crisp white. I particularly love the combination of deep blue-green with the teak mid-century furniture in the kitchen and bedroom - lovely! If you're thinking of injecting colour into your home but would still like a calm and elegant look, this is your bag!

So lovely don't you think?

It's currently for sale through Alvhem, so for one lucky person your home is already sorted! Imagine?

Get the look -Farrow & Ball offers a beautiful spectrum of blue-green shades.  The SINNERLIG plant pot is similar, source a bumling pendant in brass here. Bedroom - Hay mega dot quilt, white linen bedding, this is a good source for a vintage mid-century credenza.

You can keep up to date with Emma's latest projects on instagram (so inspiring!).

If you're feeling the blue today you might also like to check out this lovely Swedish space with a blue kitchen, the wonderful home of a Swedish food blogger and a danish apartment (a favourite of mine!). In fact, there might just be an archive dedicated to 'decorating with blue'... just saying!

Have a lovely day!

The happy home of a Dutch family on a houseboat

Monday, 22 August 2016

Could you imagine living on a houseboat? When I discovered Annelies Dutch houseboat last year I've been dreaming about living on one ever since! And I still believe my Monday mornings would look a whole lot brighter in this family home - with it's light-filled rooms, fresh white and pops of sunny yellow (and breakfast on the deck - of course!)- how about you?!

What a lovely place - her little boy 'Mr Scott' must love living there!
A few items I know and love: eames chairs,  Amsterdam canal cushion from V@Amsterdam, cactus vases from Bloomingville.

Annelies is owner of by Norr and Holy Moly Kids and drives her own fab blog. You can also keep up to date with her lovely life afloat on instagram.

Other houseboat crushes - Bert's barge in London (available to rent - I know!) and a dream houseboat on lake Eildon.

Have a wonderful start to the week!
