A wonderful home from home on Ibiza

Have you ever been to Ibiza? I've never been. I think it's because my sister lives in Mallorca - so it's our go to place in the Balearic Islands. But I'd absolutely love to visit someday. And now that the beautiful design hotel La Granja Ibiza has come on the scene a trip might just be imminent! Set on a farm, La Granja Ibiza has nine guest rooms and a freestanding guesthouse marked by 'classical Iberian architecture and traces of  Moorish influences', not to mention cool dark walls and simple, rustic touches.  The pool and kitchen area bring guests together - while cozy nooks found inside and out provide moments of 'simple solitude'.  If you like a little action, you can always head down to the farm to meet Coco the 'all-knowing pig' and learn about biodynamic agriculture through a series of workshops, classes and community-based projects. I'm loving the sound of 'lucid Sunday' and 'Other Thursdays' rituals too. Meet you there this summer?!

Could you imagine staying here?!

Yesterday I was dreaming of spending the day besides Daniella's pool and today - this one in Ibiza. Sigh - another day, another pool, if only it were all real!!

Get the look from this beautiful Ibiza design hotel: bedroom - pick up charcoal linen bed covers here, these wooden workman stools are similar, I love Private 0204 rugs. Sitting room - buy off-white linen by the half yard here to cover your sofa.

If you'd like to dream over more design hotels today I'd definitely recommend checking out this idyllic holiday home in the South of France (heaven!), your very own Tasmanian island hide-away and a Brazilian escape in lush tropical gardens.  The question is, which corner of the world should we visit first?!

Have a lovely day!

PS It was a pleasure to be interviewed by My Domain on the subject of 'Lagom in the home'  yesterday. Thank you for inviting me guys!

The inspiring Skåne home of a photographer + interior designer

I have a confession to make. We had a bit of a late night on Saturday (always a sign of a good party right?!). It was worth it of course, but it does mean this morning has been ever so slightly tougher than other Monday mornings, and, well, I'm just a little behind! Never fear though, every cloud has a silver lining and that little ray of sunshine comes from the absolutely stunning home of Daniella Witte. Daniella is one of those incredibly talented people who has perfected the art of creating beautiful interiors and takes a mean picture ! Last year she paired up with local stylist Emma Persson Lagerberg to capture her fabulous home which she shares with husband Fredrik and sons Felix and Julius, just up the coast from me here in Skåne. Time to feel very inspired!

You know, I'm actually not sure where to start. The sitting room? The bedroom? The colours? The detail? The terrace?! The whole house is absolutely perfect! But most of all I'd like it to be warm outside so I could pay a visit and spend the day with by the pool!

How about you? Is there anything you love in particular?

A couple of items from Daniella's home: dining area - in between chair by &Tradition, sitting room - butterfly chair. Upstairs sitting room - North sofa (I have the same sofa in my sitting room).

You can keep up to date with all Daniella's projects on her blog and instagram feed

Have a great start to the week!

A stunning Swedish space in white

Hello. How are you today? I'm so happy, not only is it Friday (woooop!) but I also had a visit from my friend Maria - AKA the 'Swedish Ninja' yesterday and we had such a fun day (I can't wait to share the results of our photo shoot with you next week). In the meantime, I thought you'd like to take a tour of this beautiful space in Gothenburg. Apart from the stunning architecture, there are quite a few things which I wouldn't mind in my own home - such as the sheer white curtains which add a lovely softness to the space, the white modular sofa arrangement, the built in book shelves and of course that beautiful 'Kakelugn' (masonry oven)! Is there anything that stands out to you?

Oj oj vad fin! (as they say in Sweden). What an incredible space, don't you think?!

Think that one of us could actually own it?! Perhaps a move to Gothenburg's in order?! Race you!

A few items I know and love in this Swedish apartment: sitting room - Mobil light by Monika Mulder, Hay 'woody' shelves, Beni Ourain rug. Dining area - the fabulous Vertigo suspension light. bedroom - white linen bedding, linen throw / bed cover (love these!). Reading corner - Gervasoni armchair, Hay tray table. Many of the prints can be found at The Poster Club.

Before we all shoot off to enjoy the weekend, I wanted to tell you about a mail I received yesterday about the fabulous Ragamuf 'stretchy chair rugs'. Conceived by a Finnish woman looking to support the most vulnerable Syrian female refugees in Turkey, the designs amazing (I'd so love one of these!) and the crowd funding campaign has reached 63% of it's goal - how exciting! Read more about the campaign and watch the video here.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you Monday! 

PS It was a real pleasure to be interviewed by American blog 'beauty and well being' this week. The piece is now live here if you'd like to take a peek.

The beautiful bedroom of an interior designer!

Last Sunday I headed over to my friend Genevieve Jorn's apartment in the centre of town. Interior designer Gen, Danish husband Kasper and little daughter Olivia have the most beautiful flat. You may have noticed that I've been photographing it room by room, detail by detail over the past few months (don't miss her office and kitchen!) and today I'm excited to share a tour of their wonderful master bedroom. The spacious room has magnificent bones - with high ceilings, angled walls, period features and an original parquet floor dating back to the early twentieth century. Grey walls serve as a calm backdrop for a blend of furniture - including a beautiful bench, clothes rack and dresser from Danish homeware store Nordal. Could you imagine a duvet day here?!

So lovely don't you think?! I love the layers of texture, it makes the room so warm and inviting! 

Get the look from Gen's lovely bedroom:

My dream holiday home (and garden room)!

If I ever visit Australia (which I hope to!) I'm going to be in home-from-home heaven. Seriously, I already have my accommodation mapped out! I'd simply rotate through all the homes designed by uber talented interior designer Lynda Gardener! You'll recognise The White Room, The Apartment St Kilda and The Estate Trentham from previous posts (all stunning in their own way), and today I discovered a fourth home (yes there's a fourth!). Located in Melbourne, The White House Daylesford not only offers guests a cosy main house, decorated in classic rich hues and furnished in a beautiful blend of vintage finds, it also has the most incredible 'garden bedroom'! Get ready to feel truly inspired!

That bathroom?! *siiiiiigh*. That garden bedroom?! Just everything! EVERYTHING!

The problem is, if I stayed here, I'd never want to leave, how about you?!

Get the look: pick up a vintage electric fan here, I usually source my vintage industrial lamps here. The best tip I received lately is to buy vintage army blankets - they're always incredibly warm and come in beautiful army green colours - perfect!


I'm going to be dreaming about this space all day, I hope it's inspired you too!
