Josi's Relaxed & Super Charming Berlin home

Hola que tal?! I'm on a mini break with my family in Spain right now soaking up a little half-term sunshine (the light, oh the light!). Although, this morning my mind is a few thousand kilometres away in Western Europe in this gem of an apartment in Berlin Mitte. And it's one beautiful home. Enjoyed by Josi (if you haven't discovered her on instagram hurry over now!) and her boyfriend Philipp, who are expecting their first child (how cute is that crib?! Find a similar ones here) and their two rabbits Püppi and Anton. The space is flooded with warm pools of light, which dance off a beautiful original parquet floor, mid-century and rattan finds against a backdrop of striking textures and deep hues. Possible one of my favourite apartments to date - I feel instantly warm and fuzzy just looking at it, how about you?!

There are so many elements I love about this home. But that hallway is probably the most inspiring of all! Imagine being greeted by this view each day when you arrive home?

Is there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look from Josi's home: hallway - Lyra rattan sofa (LOVE this!), light from Monoqui. Dining room - Starkey chandelier. bedroom - Java pendant light, print above bed from Desenio, source a similar crib here, Penn dressing table with mirror.

If you'd like to see more of Josi's home and find out where other items are from - nip on over to her Instagram feed here.

And for a few other lovely Berlin apartments (of which there are many - that city is so hot on relaxed, boho style, have you been? if not you must!) - check out this magnificent, bohemian pad, a mid-century inspired home and a fantastic Berlin home. Inspiring!

Have a lovely day!

PS Edition London & Country Living magazine shared an excerpt from The Scandinavian Home - and it features one of my favourite Danish homes ever (we had such a memorable day shooting it too!) - read all about it and take a tour here!

Bright and Beautiful Scandinavian Apartment


Hi, hope you're having a wonderful Monday so far! It’s Ana here again. Niki is enjoying some well-deserved holidays in beautiful Spain for the next couple of weeks–so you will see me pop in once in a while to share some content I’m sure you’ll love...



Like this gem of an apartment, located in (you guessed it!) Stockholm. This 57sqm wonder is a display of light and well-thought-out design. From top to bottom, from room to room, this home is clearly a project of love. Don't you think? I'm particularly drawn to the openness of this home, the pops of green from the plants, the clever use of space, rustic floors and intricate pieces of art on the walls-specially that gallery above the sofa.

The tall ceilings and characteristic white-crisp walls, make this my dream Scandinavian experience. I can almost picture myself, on that stunning balcony, enjoying a bright Summer evening. *sigh*

I can’t wait to read what you think about this home... BUT before I let you go, don’t forget to vote for Niki and My Scandinavian Home in the Domino design blog awards (voting closes October 31st and you can vote once a day). Thank you!

A Striking Mid-Century Inspired Danish Home

Wow - I can't believe it's actually the end of the week. It's been getting darker by the day in Sweden which makes it almost impossible to get out of bed (and we're bad at the best of times - guh!). When I was doing research for my Lagom book (see also the US and French version), I discovered only 10% of us are natural early risers - are you one of them? If not I feel your pain - at least we have two days of lie-ins ahead - yasss! Anyway. On with today's tour. And I've got the most lovely, relaxed, Danish home to share with you. Birgit (also known as Fraubitte) has an expert eye at discovering all things mid-century and retro. Her home is full of treasures, set against a  striking backdrop of black and blue-green accents. Birgit loves to share snapshots of her home on her delightful instagram feed which is also peppered with pictures  of the Danish landscape, travel, design and art. Let's take a peek inside Birgit's world!

I love all her mid-century Danish furniture so much -  just how striking does the teak look against the back wall?! 

I also think the colours in the bedroom make a pretty combination.

Is there anything that you're loving about this space?

If you're looking to achieve a smiliar look, I find Etsy a great place source for mid-century furniture including dining chairs, credenzas and mirrors (I've had my eye on an asymmetric mirror ever since I saw one in this Danish home - aren't they lovely?)

If you fancy getting a little more Danish inspiration this weekend check-out this archive... one of my favourites...

Have a great weekend and see you Monday!

PS Don't forget to vote for My Scandinavian Home in the Domino Design Blog Awards (category 'Best International Design Blogs') if you have the time - it would make my day!

Embracing the grey, Swedish style

When it starts to get cold and grey outside sometimes the only way is to embrace it. Like in this Swedish home! For some it might be missing that dash of colour - for others it's an oasis of calm and serenity. Either way, there's definitely a little inspiration in here for all (a triple row of pillows might be a good place to start -  just how much do you want to sink into that bed right now?!). Put up your feet, take a fika and enjoy the tour!












Beautiful photography by Anders Bergstedt for Entrance

So calm! I'm liking the hooks and round mirror (they're everywhere right now) in the bedroom - so simple to replicate - and yet lovely too!  I there anything that stands out to you?

Get the look: sitting room - Jetson armchair, Tati sofa table, bestlite wall sconce, the black and white spotted and stonewashed white linen cushions are similar, source similar prints at The Poster Club (would love to know who the swimmer is by - any tips?!). dining - wishbone chair. bedroom - round mirror, wooden hook rack, white bestlite wall sconce.

See more Scandinavian homes in shades of grey here - or for lovers of bolds and brights - you'll love this colourful home archive!

Super excited to receive the French version of my Lagom book in the post yesterday - eeeeee! It's available for pre-orders here and will launch on 2nd November, 2017! Merci beaucoup!

Have a lovely day!

A Relaxed Mid-century Inspired Danish Home

Living just over the bridge from Copenhagen, I'm often asked 'how often do you visit?' The answer is "not enough". Seriously, this is a crying shame - I absolutely love the Danish style. There's something relaxed, bohemian and achingly cool about it. It's also a quietly confident look which relishes in imperfection. Take the Danish home of Anne Hundborg - a self-employed web developer and graphic designer, her boyfriend Jonas, five children (combined), a dog and a cat (yes that's one "full house," laughs Anne) as an example.  Located in the city of Randers on the Jutland peninsula, Anne has decorated her home under the ethos "the rules are there ain't no rules" (....ha! I recognise that line - do you?!) and chooses to "mix all sorts of textures, materials, colours, and decades." Look out for mid-century touches and wonderful, playful details throughout! 












Photography / design: Anne Hundborg

What a charming home?! I love all the mid-century touches and artwork in particular - how about you?

Get the look: dining room - Panthella floor lamp, Posters / prints: Bambi and Heels and Resting Feet by Paper Collective. sitting room - Söderhamn sofa, landscape prints by Enklamide, SINNERLIG Pendant lamp. Children's bedroom - Doughnuts poster from Desenio.

You can see more of Anne's lovely home over on her Instagram feed here (many items are tagged too), and a whole load more of 'great dane' (sorry) inspiration in this archive (don't miss a Danish home full of vintage finds, the dreamy home of a writer, an eclectic Copenhagen apartment with attitude in particular - all very different, all truly inspiring!).

Have a great day!
