Perfect blend: rustic/ industrial/ contemporary

After 8 years in Sweden I thought I knew how to deal with the long winter; leave the country when the snow arrives! If you travel to the Canary Islands or Thailand around early spring you're bound to be surrounded by tanned Swedes stocking up on some much needed sun! But this Autumn I noticed something new-  everyone's heading off now too. A holiday in September presumably to soften the blow of the end of the summer. Since I have missed the boat (litereally) I'm mentally transporting myself  to this stunning home in Spain by architects / property developers Abaton (via 79 ideas) instead. It has just the right mix of Spanish rustic, industrial and modern designer elements to really soften the blow of the impending winter.

Abaton via 79 ideas
I spy Tom Dixon again in the form of the Beat Lights (just goes tp show how versatile Tom Dixon lights are - yesterday the Copper Shade Pendant looked at home in a retro style home, today the Beat Lights look fab in a contemporary minimalist home. The Wegner Wishbone Chairs also blend in beautifully. I could certainly see myself celebrating the end of summer here, could you?

Do you have any winter survival tips?!


  1. I can't tell you how much I love that kitchen, at top of page. So beautiful. Actually, everything in this post is stunning.

  2. A holiday in preparation for Winter- the Swedes are just beyond brilliant at this point in my book. Winter tips: vaselline/petroleum jelly to the keep skin happy and Mexican hot chocolate to keep the heart happy.

  3. My survival is nice tea, movies, a lot of candles and once in a while to buy something for your home....Shopaholic as I am :)

    Take care!

  4. Love the windows they are like paintings.
    Sadly the kids stop us from any holidays in September they ar eonly just back at school!!
    No school holidays till October!
    Very damp here now.........need to get use to it!!

  5. After just a few days of cold and rainy weather, I'm missing sunny Alabama. It'll be my first "real" winter in over 12 years. I'm thinking a trip back to the States might be happening in January.

  6. Så mycket fin inspiration, gillar speciellt vaserna och det fina gröna kruset.

    Hoppas allt är bra med dig!
