my scandinavian home: A Texan home with a twist

A Texan home with a twist

Friday, 1 March 2013

Hello Friday! The sun's shining, spring's in the air.....this is more like it Sweden! And from one sunny city to another - this is Dance Hall (love the name) in Texas designed by Barbara Hill. I love the use of concrete and neutral tones but most of all the quirky touches of art, it's almost as if the home is giving you a cheeky wink!

I discovered Barbara's portfolio through Hege in France who showed another of Barbara's homes here.

What are your thoughts on baths in the bedroom? For me there's something very luxurious about them, infact could it be something for my new bedroom (my husband goes green).

Exciting news today too. Two new sponsors!

A big warm welcome to the wonderful online shop Nest with it's fabulous collection of Scandinavian design pieces. You can find a short interview and my personal pick of Nest items here  (trust me I had a hard time narrowing it down!).

And another big warm welcome to Loony Socks, a fab brightly coloured socks company from Finland. The idea was born after a Father and daughter's fun design project unexpectedly took off and now Scandinavians everywhere are donning bright coloured stripey socks!

 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Up to anything fun?

  8. What a great home! I love the kitchen, the sink is amazing and I would like to have one like this in my home. And the "make tacos not war" sign is hilarious. I have no plans this weekend, which is a first in a while. I'll probably will be trying to catch up with blogging. Enjoy your weekend Niki!

  10. With all of the concrete and clean lines, I would have never guessed this home was in Texas. Ha! Love the 'Make tacos not war' line (...ok, maybe that feels very Texas.)

  12. What a fabulously interesting home! I love the dining area. Baths in the bedroom has always been a question mark for me, I love the concept but I am too fixated on the practicalities - like do you get condensation on your sheets?
