my scandinavian home: A vintage inspired Brussels home

A vintage inspired Brussels home

Monday, 25 February 2013

Hello! I'm back! Thank you so much to Dagny and Marianne for covering me while I was away. I have to say I'm feeling more than a little sorry for myself as I'm STILL ill. I'm sitting here tapping away in my (very cosy) white company slippers and chunky knit cardigan and a big cup of tea (I do love to take these things seriously). And as ever I'm cheered up by a beautiful home! This particular space with all it's vintage and mid century furniture belongs to a talented family in Brussels and was photographed by Louise Desrosiers for milk magazine.

With kind permission from photographer Louise Desrosiers. Milk magazine via Mokkasin.

 The floor has to be the clear winner here. You can just envision someone totally uncool walking in and saying 'OK, the first thing we need is a new floor here' but not this cool Brussels family, they've completely embraced it and it looks fantastic! there's always the reclaimed flooring company for the rest of us!

There are a few more lovely pictures of this home over at Milk magazine, and a full article if you speak French (or if you're like me with errr French hardly a strong point there's always google translate).

Right. Time to get back under my duvet. Have a lovely Monday!


  1. Lovely space! Great to see an article from Milk too. Hope you get better soon :-)

  2. Cheers me up too.Love that flor too, love the floor it has history, we have a beat up floor, not sure ours looks quite so cool though.
    Poor you hope you feel better soon, everyone needs spring now. x

  3. Hi dear, I hope you will be better soon,
    Love this images from Brussel, love this atmosphere, home library and this floor is nice, amazing :)

  4. Ooh a chance to go practice my French to read the rest of the article! The modular shelving is so great. Hope you feel better soon, Niki!

  5. I love this ! Milk magazine is always a great source of inspiration...

  6. Cool floor. Cacti ouch!

  7. Oh, that floor is drool worthy but the rest of the apartment is not too shabby either. I have been catching one cold after the other this winter and can totally relate to want to slip back under the duvet and stay in bed. Feel better soon, Niki!

  8. Loving this apartment. I am in love with the abstract looking thing in the kitchen that I don't know the English name for but it catches the steam while you're cooking - what's it called?

    1. Hi Dagny! It's an 'extractor fan' - it's great isn't it - very unusual! Thank you so much for your lovely guest post on Friday :)

  9. I love the diner table with its various chairs. It feels cosy and very friendly!

  10. Loved reading your blog! My interior design taste keeps changing, one minute I love modern, next minute I've purchased traditional pine wardrobes! I'm not sure I'll ever make my mind up!
