A French kitchen is given a fab modern twist

I love discovering a space that offers something a little bit different - especially in the kitchen, don't you? French pair Bertille and Lionel requested the help of interior designers Royal Roulotte (remember this lovely home tour?!) to help create a modern, new feel in the heart of their home in Montreuil. The result is this fab kitchen / diner made from IKEA base cabinets combined with rough particle board wall cabinets and shelving, antique furniture, filament bulbs, beautiful tiles and mix and match Formica chairs (source similar here). Let's take a peek...

What a great kitchen - I love the idea of the little dining area behind the kitchen island and those tiles are wonderful (does anyone know where to source these?)!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

If you're after more kitchen inspiration today you might want to check out the entire archive here (warning, there are loads, so you might just want to pour a coffee first!). Or if it's more plywood / particle board inspiration you're after - I have an archive for that too! (if this home comes up first just scroll past it).

Have a lovely day!

PS Thank you so much to Luxury London for including me in your top four interior bloggers!  I see I'm in amazing company too, what an honour!

The fabulous Flinders Lane Apartment

The plywood trend has been popular for a while now, and I can see why. Flinders Lane Apartment in Melbourne has been artfully designed by Claire Cousins, Dita Beluli and Jessie Fowler to create a family space on a small budget. The owners were looking to create two bedrooms out of one o make space for a baby. Plywood joinery has been used to define the two spaces instead of building actual walls. The plywood also cleverly doubles up as storage space. I love the way the apartment has been finished including the pretty touches of salmon.  What a massively cool family home!

Looking at this apartment (along with this clever small living space, a fab Malmö home, House for Mother and this stunning monochrome and plywood home) makes me start to wonder where I could use plywood in my own home! How about you?

Hope you have a lovely day!

House for Mother

Good morning! I hope you had a lovely weekend (and enjoyed my rare Sunday home tour). It's so gloomy here in Southern Sweden today but it's OK because I've a beautiful project to share! 'House For Mother' (great name?), is the brainchild of Förstberg Arkitektur as their contribution to the Linköpingsbo 2017 housing exhibition. While the outside will be constructed of raw corrugated aluminium, the inside will be designed using exposed timber and walls lined with plywood to add warmth. This is definitely going to be categorised under my 'fabulous architecture' label! What do you reckon?

I'm a big fan of plywood (more inspiration from this, this and this home) although I  haven't channeled this in my own home. How about you?

Oh and I love the Bumling lamp, featured in House for Mother (had to repeat the name as it's so lovely) in white.

I hope you have a wonderful start to the week!

A smart and wonderful small living space

Hello Thursday! Earlier this week I got a request to show inspiration for a small living space. I was having fun working on Pinterest this morning and found this perfect little living space in Antwerp owned by Caroline. With the help of architect Katrien Van Doren, Caroline has turned what could have been a fairly cramped space into a beautiful, spacious home full of smart solutions.

I could live here, could you? I love the use of plywood throughout the home - both as kitchen cabinets and as room dividers. The important thing about this space (in my eyes) is that Caroline has been careful to divide up the space into specific areas such as a sitting room, dining, and bedroom despite space limitations. And although much of it is all white, the different textures create interest and warmth.

Is there anything else you notice about this space?

Thank you to Merel of Studio Birdy for your help with this piece.

If you'd like to see another home with this plywood and white blend check out my neighbour's former home from ATWTP, it's so fantastic! There's also all of these homes labelled under 'decorating with plywood'. And for more small space inspiration I'm loving this and this home.

Have a lovely day / evening.

A stunning Dutch home blending old and new. And give-away winner....

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful weekend? I ended last week with a Dutch home tour and this week I'll start with one too (talk about going Dutch!). This one hundred year old farmhouse owned by Rosemarijn van Zandvoort of Skattejakt (check out her beautiful shop and blog) has been carefully restored using a blend of old and new. I think the old world rustic charm of the beams and wooden floor against the Scandinavian blonde wood and white walls (and a touch of poured concrete) looks truly fantastic, how about you?

l often look around my open plan sitting room and dining room area and think I have thrown together to many different types of wood. But when I see Rosemarijn's home it gives me confidence that everything doesn't need to match. How about you?

Try here for stunning aged / reclaimed wood floors.

Thank you so much for all the wonderful entries into last week's give-away to win a Ferm Living Candleholder String from Nest. I wish you all could have won, it was so much fun reading your lovely comments. I am excited to announce the winner: Bene Artuphel please send me a mail with your address so we can organise the shipment.

Have a lovely Monday!

A transportable house? I'm sold!

Imagine if you could simply transport your home somewhere else this weekend? Crazy idea right? Wrong! This portable home concept by Ábaton architects means you can pick up your entire house with a truck and transport it wherever you like. Makes me smile. And with an interior like that I'm totally sold.

A beautiful Malmö home

I do love discovering a home from here in Skåne. And this particular house (for sale through Bo-laget) resonates with me as my family and I looked around one of these fab Friluftstaden houses a few years ago. I I love the way they have decorated the house with light wood, modern Danish design pieces from Hay and Muuto as well as the odd classic and chosen a beautiful soft milky colour palette throughout. What a stunning space, I wonder who it belongs to?

Bo-laget via Do You Fancy This

It reminds me a little of my neighbour from All The Way To Paris' home which was on the market last year (also the location for this Muuto shoot (last picture only), don't you think?

I spy: could it be the A330 Ceiling lamp in silver (15% discount with code MYSCAN)?, the nerd chair and wood table lamp by Muuto (psssst there's a competition over at Nest to win this fab lamp right now), and the Flos 265 wall light (I've been toying with the black version for some time). Oh and you can find beautiful linen bedding at Bodie and Fou (love the chalk version :)

Quick, someone snap up this beautiful home!

Stunning apartment in monochrome and wood

Hello and happy Monday! I do love to start the week off with a bang and I think this Polish apartment certainly does the trick! It's actually only 29 sqm but looks bigger thanks to the light colours and clever architecture. I love the plywood throughout, in a small space it's important to keep to a theme and have a consistent thread through out. What a fab space!

I could live here, could you?!
