A Peaceful and Calming Bedroom, Inspired by Nature

It's Friday people - FRIDAY! Boy, am I happy to see the weekend, how about you? I'm feeling so jaded - and seeing a beautiful bedroom like this isn't helping matters. It's the type of space that makes you want to climb through the picture, crawl under the covers and stay for a while! You might remember Nina Plummer's beautiful Edinburgh home from this feature. At the time it went to press (how pro does that sound?!) the bedroom wasn't ready. Today, the nude, cream and sage green master bedroom, which Nina shares with husband Craig, is as breath-taking and serene as the rest of the apartment. 

"From natural linen bedding to bare wood and a calming, neutral colour pallet, we wanted our space to feel cosy, inviting and simple, offering a warm place to rest and recharge." Nina Plummer


A lamp from Devol Kitchens and a pearwood dusting brush hang from a brass hook beside the linen Ghost bed. A little wooden stool* provides a perfect platform for a morning cup of tea! 

The bed is dressed with a Belgian linen throw blanket in raw umber and velvet jewel cushions in dappled sage. A little round table picked up at an antique shop serves as a bedside table. Nina had the curtains custom made, the brass pole is from Jim Lawrence.

A beautifully worn chest-of-drawers adds character to the room. Knowing Nina, I'm sure it's in great working order (unlike the antique chest-of-drawers I had in my bedroom as a child - I remember wiggling the drawers for hours just to get a pair of socks out!). The natural hemp palm broom is another goodie from Nina's shop. 

What a beautiful bedroom! So peaceful.

Could you imagine a lie in here this weekend?

See more of Nina's home here and also on her instagram and blog. Her online shop INGREDIENTS LDN is absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit too! 

Did you see the 18 headboards to love right now earlier on this week? This linen headboard was one of my favourites! 

I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

Vi ses på Måndag!

Captains Cottage: A Super Cosy Bolthole in Hobart, Tasmania







The weather has cooled dramatically this week in Sweden. Is Autumn in the air where are you are too? I should be dreaming of knitted scarves, steaming mugs of coffee, roaring fires and all the other magical things the new season brings with it. But I'm not. I'm dreaming of a winter escape to Tasmania (where it's a little warmer) and a stay at this charming cottage. Wait, before you say anything, you need to take a peek for yourself! Located in Hobart's central business district, the cosy listed cottage was built in the mid 1800s for a sea captain. Owners Kylie and Sean Breaker have lovingly furnished it with an eclectic blend of vintage finds and newer pieces - as well as a subtle nod to its sea-faring past. "Captains Cottage is where we love to stay when visiting Hobart and is your haven too. We hope you fall in love with her as we have," say Kylie and Sean to potential guests. Now there's an invite!







Could you imagine staying here?

I'm feeling like a trip to Tasmania is in order. I'd totally combine it stay with a stay on Satellite island too!

Mind you, I've been saying that for years.

Read more about Captains Cottage and book your stay here or on airbnb.

18 Hot Headboards - For Every Budget and Style!


Scandinavians are known for their love of minimalism - and nowhere is more important than in the bedroom where the clean and decluttered aesthetic helps to creates an oasis of calm. Over the years, headboards have taken a distinct backseat - and in many cases banished altogether. But I've been noticing a welcomed change. Not only are headboards making a come back, they're taking centre stage! Think high, low, or super wide headboards in leather, linen, velvet, rattan, cane and wood. Go vintage or contemporary - or get crafting and make your own. There's something out there for every taste and budget. Here are 18 looks I love right now:

Leather

1. DIY cotton and leather hanging headboard: if you want to keep the bed you have but looking for a quick headboard fix, this DIY idea by Paulsvera with leather straps and two standard pillows could be the perfect solution - plus it's easy to clean and looks super comfy! 
2. Hung up on leather: Another hanging solution, this headboard from Citizenry goes all out leather. Love the cognac finish! 

Velvet

3. The cushion hack: In this Brooklyn apartment, the owner has attached a simple cushion from Urban Outfitters to the wall for a makeshift headboard. I love the moss tone - and it looks kinda cosy too, don't you think? 

4. The wrap around velvet: Once we've got over the beautiful colours (how fabulous is the combination of olive green, millennial pink and a touch of gold?) zoom in and imagine reclining against this velvet beauty. There's even a ledge to rest your head.  

5. The scallop: still on the pink - but with a different form and kind of relaxed. There's a similar headboard to this one currently available at Walmart! Oh, how I wish I lived in America right now. Loving this look, how about you? 

Linen

6. Freestanding linen: I bet you knew it was only a matter of time before linen appeared in this line-up - and this Ghost bed in the home of the owner of Artilleriet is an absolute beauty! You might just want to check out the full tour of this beautiful Gothenburg home too. Just saying. 

7. Simply Linen: If the Ghost linen bed featured in no.6 is a little over budget (*eyes water*) - a simple standalone linen headboard like this one in the home of Elin Kickén might be more your thing. I love the ones handmade by Fabricat.se

Wool

8. Quilted wool: A classic headboard that is super comfy and will never go out of style. This one's the Malö bed by luxury swedish bed manufactured Carpe Diem Beds - timeless and cosy! 

Cane

9. Rounded cane: If Finnish interior stylist Susanna Vento has chosen this cane headboard from Matri by Fennobed for her home, we should probably take note. 

10. Classic cane: keep an eye out for a classic cane headboard like this one at flea markets and second hand shops. It's the kind of piece you'll never tire of (Etsy* have a few great ones). 

11. Romantic cane: I'm all for adding a little romance to the bedroom - and this pretty antique cane headboard is as pretty as can be. Keep an eye out for headboards with old school glamour like this at antique fairs. 

12. DIY cane: yes, still on the cane, sorry! But I couldn't quite drop the style before I linked to this wonderful Ikea hack made using an Ivar unit and a sheet of cane. Follow September Edit's guide and you could have a new headboard in hours! 

Wood

13. White wood: probably the most standard headboard / bed frame in the mix - but I do love how a simple white bed can form the basis for any look. Dress in earthy linens and other textured, natural materials for a cosy look that still feels fresh. 

14. Contemporary light wood: a headboard that extends the width of the bedroom. Why not? Plus, wood allows you to add electrical outlets. To achieve a similar look either nip to your local DIY store for supplies and get crafting (she says.... having not touched a saw since school!) - OR ask a local carpenter to cut wood to size. This would look great in a kid's room too, don't you think?

15. The statement headboard: Now, this is fabulous. Yes, the room happens to have beautiful bones (massively high ceilings, concrete floor...) - but there's nothing to stop us from making full use of the height of a space - and these wood slats are the business! 

16. The add-on headboard: Remember this home? Sarah Shabacon created a birch headboard using a series of Mandal headboards from IKEA - so simple, yet so clever! 

Rattan

17. Simple rattan: palm headboards are everywhere right now - and there's a style to fit every boho heart! This one from Tiretta Living in the home of Studio Elwa is simple, yet still decorative and looks pretty against a soft peach wall. Side note: don't miss the full tour of Elin's home here!

18. Decorative rattan: or you could go a little more decorative and opt for a curved rattan headboard like this one from Silka Design

In Denmark, A Cosy And Eclectic Home Full of Art

A few moments ago, about a month's worth of rain came down in five minutes. I kid you not. Luckily, I'm working from home, all cosy and dry - and wondering if I've left a window open somewhere. In Denmark, another home was getting a soaking: det lille grå hus (the little grey house). Despite the weather and (pretty) grey facade, Helle's living space in Silkeborg is far from grey. The Dane is driven by "a love for beautiful things and fine materials" rather than designer pieces. Despite this, some classics have snuck in by way of flea market finds, family heirlooms "or simply because a chair is so beautiful it's hard to resist, despite being by Børge Mogensen". The eclectic interior also includes pieces from IKEA and Ilva as well as DIY solutions and lots and lots of wonderful art. Welcome inside the cosy Danish home of Helle, husband Kurt and their children Eve and Herman!

Pouf from Sofa Company



What a pretty home! 

I love how Helle has simply followed her heart and chosen pieces for their aesthetics rather than who they're made by, it's given the space so much soul.

Is there anything you love in particular about this home?

You can see more of Helle's home on her homepage and instagram @detlillegraahus and a load of other beautiful Danish homes in this archive. 

Got to love Danish style!
