A Warm Home Which Nails the In-Between Season Vibe!

Hi campers! How was your weekend? Ready for a home tour with some inspiring details? This lovely space in Heidelberg, Germany belongs to Danilo and Paolo. The duo are passionate about the home, flowers and travel - all of which come together in this harmonious living space. I particularly love how they have mastered that 'between season vibe' when the light returns, the spring flowers have bloomed, and yet there's still a bite in the air.  Keep a look out for kilim rugs, spring flowers, candles and blankets, a beautiful bathroom cabinet and a ceiling height palm. Ready to feel inspired? 

This home has such a lovely feeling. The spring flowers, blankets and candles certainly help - a perfect between season combination! 

Tip on plants: mature greenery like this palm can be expensive. Keep a look out for similar plants on budget-friendly second-hand sites such as gumtree and eBay - here in Sweden businesses are often selling off plants like these when they update their office). 

Another tip: Annie at We Are Here Now sells lovely vintage kilim rugs.

Is there anything that caught your eye?

BTW thank you so much for your positive feedback on my 2022 organisation series with Elfa on Friday. I'm excited too - just feeling a little overwhelmed by tackling my attic! Gaaah! 

Have a great start to the week!

A Cool Yet Calm Rose-tinted French Family Home


Every now and again I come across an entirely unique home that totally draws me in. This is one of them. The house (from the early 1900s) is located in Nancy, North East France and belongs to Coralie, so doctor,  her partner Nicolas, an architect, and their three adorable children. Coralie has a penchant for pink - the dominant accent throughout their home - but twee it's not. Her preferred pink is distinctly calming (Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball to be precise) and when paired with neon, brass, ochre, wood and rattan it emits a wonderfully bang up to date look that's cool and contemporary yet incredibly calm. Ready to feel inspired? Pull up a seat and enjoy the tour - I've added a few tips on where items are from - just in case you'd like to get the look at home! 

Kitchen countertop from Mosaic factory. Print: I love You. In French.

Lamp: DIY (how cool is that?) - see Coralie's instagram highlights for more info. 

Palm lamp, poufs from Muskhane

Dusty pink accent colour: Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball, Good Vibes light*


Colour on the wall: Setting Plaster by Farrow & Ball, bedding: Le Petit Florilège, Print: Rabbit by Fine Little Day 

Bed canopy: Nordic nest*, Boheme bed by Bon Ton

Wallpaper: Roomblush, hanging light: Ekatarina Galera, Garland on wardrobe: Happy Moon Studio. Print: Marta Abad Blay

Such a wonderful home! The pink hue is spot on, and there are so many great details! 

Could you imagine having a dusty pink accent in your home? Or perhaps there were some pieces / details that really stood out to you? Share your thoughts below, I'd love to hear from you! 

See more of Coralie's lovely home over at @coraliefelicie

There are a ton more French homes to feel inspired by here. 

I'll be back tomorrow with a charming, pared back Danish cabin - I think you're going to like it, so make sure you stop by!

A Scandi-Inspired Warm and Relaxed Family Home

When I first came across Sabrina's home over at @maisonpourcinq I assumed it was Danish. There is something about the way she has balanced minimalism with a relaxed, warm vibe as well as her choice of interior items like the wall mounted mug storage, specific prints and the cone shaped wall lamp that gives it a Danish touch. But actually, upon reaching out, I discovered Sabrina resides in Marl, Germany with her husband Ouissem and three children Vega (15), Mika Anouk (3) and Jonah Nael (1). Which just goes to show, you don't need to have the Viking gene to create a beautiful, Scandi inspired home! Ready to feel inspired by this relaxed family home? 

"A lot of our furniture is used and I never really liked for it - it found us. My instincts know what fit into our house. Sometimes I don't even think it's beautiful at first, but I know it fits a particular room or corner and emits a good feel. I've learned that not everything I find beautiful fits into this little house. It can be a sad process sometimes, but we love the finished rooms" - Sabrina 

Can you spot the TV? 

Sabrina and her husband have been painstakingly renovating the house over a number of years. the below before, during and after pictures provide a snapshot of what they have been contending with! 

I recognise that Geberit cistern from our own bathroom build up at the cabin! We also opted for the same Geberit flush button.  

So beautiful! The off-white tones give the space such a calm feel. I love the use of the Ikea 'Moppe' mini chest as bathroom storage too! 

I really enjoyed this! It's so relaxed and full of interesting, inspiring details.  

I particularly loved the little dragon! How about you? 

See more over at @maisonpourcinq.

Since it's put me in a Danish frame of mind, here are a few homes to enjoy from the other side of the Öresund bridge:



Tomorrow my younger sister arrives from London for the weekend - I can't wait! I hope you have some nice plans lined up too!

Trevlig helg! See you Monday! 

Niki

PS The news is just so hard to digest right now. Yesterday I felt like doing something extra, so I signed up for the charity donation based 'Run for peace' and ran 10 kilometres (unbelievably stiff today!). If you feel like doing something similar over the weekend, you can make a donation and sign up over at Virtual Runners (there is also the option of a 3 km and 5 km which you can run or walk!). 

Now for a hot bath.

A Dreamy Vintage-inspired Family Home on the French Riviera

Bonjour! Yes, you've guessed it, we're off to France today. Not IRL of course (although that would've been nice, don't you think?) - but right here on the blog. Jessica, her husband and their two children Cara and Maya live in a beautiful home on the French Riviera. Decorated in calming neutrals, the house is a sea of cool white and cream, punctuated with rattan and wood for warmth. Vintage furniture and art help to add a relaxed vibe throughout - and the perfect base from which to explore Cannes, St Tropez, Nice and Monaco. Bienvenue chez Jessica! 


I'd do a house swap in an instant - how about you? 

There are so many beautiful ideas to feel inspired by too - I love the childrens' room in particular (that bunkbed and shared desk!). 

Is there anything that stood out to you? 

See more over at @mayra_and_me

Shall we take a peek at a few other French homes today? Here are some VERY inspiring blasts from the past: 


I hope you enjoyed today's France-inspired post as much as I did. All this talk has made me dream of having Moules frites for lunch! Mmmm! 

After an international week, perhaps I'll return tomorrow with a Scandinavian tour - we'll see! Sending hugs until then!

Michiel's Harmonious Dutch Home in Natural Hues

Good morning friends! Stopping by here on this bright and sunny Monday morning in Malmö with the beautiful home of Michiel Bosman. A photographer, stylist and teacher, Michiel has been busy renovating his house in the small town of Bodegraven between Amsterdam and Rotterdam in The Netherlands. The canvas is in place with a calming combination of natural wood, stone and soft earthy hues, and now he has begun to layer it with a perfect blend old and new (with a particular penchant for Scandinavian design - which of course, I love!). Here are a few snapshots from his harmonious home. 

The wooden kitchen cabinets are from the Norwegian family run business Ask og Eng, the marble top is from De Keukenbladenfabriek and the taps are by deVOL. Wooden shelves are laden with artisan objects by ceramicists such as Robynn Storgaard and Poppy Lawman

This popular lamp is popping up in many beautiful homes right now - it's by Valerie Objects

Spotted: pendant lamp from Louis Poulsen*, SK2 chairs from &tradition, Vent stool by Skagerak 


The bedroom is one of Michiel's latest projects, the walls have been painted in 'clay mid' from Little Greene. Next step - art! 

Such a beautiful home. To me, it looks like the perfect canvas, backdrop from which to build upon over time and layer with personal objects, art and everyday items. 

If you love this home as much as I do and have the time today, hop over to Michiel's instagram feed @michieljbosman to see more snapshots and follow his renovation. One of Michel's latest posts really resonated with me in particular, and it's heartwarming to see he has updated the link in his bio to re-direct to a Dutch charity seeking to help those in need. 

Would you like to see a few other Dutch homes this morning? Here are a few I love: 


Stor kram (big hug) to you all at the start of the week.
