A monochrome Danish home with Christmas touches

Hello there, how're you faring up this week?! I think I've got just the home to bring you a little mid-week calm! It comes in the form of Henriette Bach's cottage in Holte, in the Northern outskirts of Copenhagen. Henriette is part owner of design firm Nordstjerne, which creates beautiful items for the home. Henriette favours a minimalist approach to decorating, carefully selecting items she loves, including treasures collected on travels and of course items from her company. She's also inspired by nature which you can see from the abundance of sheepskins, and natural elements. I love the subtle Christmas touches too. Let's take a tour....

So serene!

Is this your kind of style?

Items I know and love: Sheepskin, Sofa from Eilersen, cushions/ pillows Day Home, Danish Christmas ornaments and dark grey stocking from Nordstjerne, Bestlite floor lamp, Bestlite wall lamp,  I love the light grey cashmere blanket, source a similar beautifully soft one here

You can see more of this lovely home and read a full interview over at BoligLiv.

Other links I love today:

Don't miss this pretty Swedish Christmas inspiration from Residence magazine.

I had the pleasure of visiting this Danish home briefly last summer (it was fabulous) - I'll always love these images of it in the snow all decked out for Christmas too.

How pretty is this Christmas tree? - it reminds me of my girls decorating the tree a few years ago. I've finally got around to putting a few cosy touches to my sitting room too (over on Instagram)...

Comfort food of the day.

I'm so happy with the posts I've got lined up for the rest of the week - including a Scandinavian gift wrapping guide, a fab give-away, some lovely festive home tours, plus some very exciting news....I look forward to hanging out with you!

Have a lovely day!

A Texan home with a twist

Hello Friday! The sun's shining, spring's in the air.....this is more like it Sweden! And from one sunny city to another - this is Dance Hall (love the name) in Texas designed by Barbara Hill. I love the use of concrete and neutral tones but most of all the quirky touches of art, it's almost as if the home is giving you a cheeky wink!

I discovered Barbara's portfolio through Hege in France who showed another of Barbara's homes here.

What are your thoughts on baths in the bedroom? For me there's something very luxurious about them, infact could it be something for my new bedroom (my husband goes green).

Exciting news today too. Two new sponsors!

A big warm welcome to the wonderful online shop Nest with it's fabulous collection of Scandinavian design pieces. You can find a short interview and my personal pick of Nest items here  (trust me I had a hard time narrowing it down!).

And another big warm welcome to Loony Socks, a fab brightly coloured socks company from Finland. The idea was born after a Father and daughter's fun design project unexpectedly took off and now Scandinavians everywhere are donning bright coloured stripey socks!

 I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Up to anything fun?

Are you a minamilst or a maxamilist?!

How do you feel about the minimalist look? The reason I ask is that last night my Mum said (in only way a mum does) 'isn't it bare in here?! I mean, where are all your things?!' And I realised that I've slowly over time adapted to the Swedish more minimalist look and feel (oh and crammed more and more things into cupboards, drawers, under the bed......). For example, to my eyes, this home below seems very beautiful in a simple, serene way. But what do you think?  How do you get the balance between minamilist and personal?

Oh and it's a very important day tomorrow - my daughter's 4th birthday - she's been counting down the days / weeks / months so the pressure's on! I'm thinking it's unlikely I'll get back to you before the weekend but I'll try!

A pretty, rustic, minimalistic hotel on Gotland

Ever romanticised of owning a B&B on a beautiful island somewhere? Me? Always! Today I'm dreaming of owning Hotell Magazinet which is now for sale on the wonderful Swedish east coast island of Gotland. Decorated in beautiful rustic, minimal style with orginal floorboards and pillars restored from the days when it was a flour warehouse and then a grain depot in WWII, it's already for you to move in and start receiving guests!

Fantastic Frank
Incidentally, Gotland is a fantastic place to go on holiday. Lots of very trendy and arty Swedes flock there each summer. Some of the summer cottages available to rent are just beautiful. Well worth an internet search!

Hej heeej.
