A Warm and Relaxed Artists Home Full of Vintage Finds

I'm in the mood for some arty / creative inspiration today, how about you? Scrolling through my instagram feed I happened upon Edna's charming home in Rheinland, Germany and it fits the bill perfectly! Edna has always wanted to live in an old house - and was delighted when she moved into the Art Nouveau property - with its high ceilings and wonderful light - dating back to 1911. Edna and her husband are both artists and live in the two lower floors of the property with their children and adopted cats. Their studio occupies the top floor. Edna loves to immerse herself in history and likes to keep the look and feel of her home "bright, natural and unconventional". The furniture is a blend of antiques (matching the date of the house), vintage finds as well as a few handpicked contemporary pieces. The result is a wonderful, relaxed, lived-in feel where no two pieces are the same. Ready to feel inspired? 

Oh, so beautiful! 

I love how distinct and personal this home is, it's truly original. 

That cat ramp! 

Do you feel charmed by this home too? Anything in particular that stood out to you? 

Keep an eye on Edna's email for more inspiration.

I also love the low hanging art in the Stockholm home of Karolina Modig

When it comes to hanging art, I love the way Edna's has played with scale and space. If you have art to hang but not sure where to start - or you'd like to create a gallery wall, I've shared a fail-safe technique here

Wishing you a wonderful Wednesday!

  1. Charmed is definitely the right word! I really love the variety of wood tones and styles of cabinets and furniture used with so much white. And the cat stairs from the balcony are brilliant!

  2. and the clock - forgot to mention how pretty and simple the wall clock is!

  3. Do you know the name of the wallpaper?

    2. I wonder if you realise how incredibly unwelcoming it is to disable right click on your blog for people who rely on text to speech software? Normal visitors won't notice unless they try to right click a place or a product you mention to use Google but if you rely on a text reader you are stuffed. It's just a simple matter of adding a plugin to your browser to restore the right click function but it's the idea that you assume that anyone who wants to to right click an element on your page is a thief that is so upsetting. It's like being told by a shopkeeper that you can't touch anything because the only reason you would want to touch it in the first place is so you can steal it. No one likes content thieves but disabling right click to stop them is no more effective than detering a bike thief by securing it to a lamppost with a thread of cotton.

      I say this a professional web developer who for many years designed and develop websites for guide dogs for the blind, the RNIB and other disability charities. Please think again or ask your blog manager to read a little more on the implications of disabling right click via js. Thanks.
