Cool and contemporary in Chianti

Hello, London calling! I've popped home for a while to see family and friends and it's so lovely to be here (and HOT too!). This home in Chianti, Tuscany is a fascinating mix of rustic and contemporary. Designed by architects Ugo Dattilo, the home has been carefully renovated to restore original features such as beams and exposed stone walls while bringing it up to date with fab modern design pieces such as the Tom Dixon Beat Lights over the dining table and the Eero Aarnio Bubble Chair.

Such a fascinating mix of styles and just goes to show that you don't need to stick to the period of the home to decorate. 

What are your thoughts? Would you go for a mix?

The home of an Australian stylist

Set on top of a hill in Brisbane, Australia, this beautiful home belongs to stylist Kara Rosenlund, her husband and flock of Pekin Bantam hens. Kara is a master at vintage finds which she then blends with contemporary pieces.  The space has such a summer time feel to it with it's soft hues, white pannelled walls and sunny veranda. Love this space!

I could live here, could you?!

I spotted a lot of beautiful round rugs like the one in the top picture on Etsy last night here.

This morning I'm preparing my home for  shoot. First stop IKEA! I do love a morning at IKEA, my Mum thinks I'm mad as the one in London is not really somwwhere you'd go to chill out.....but here in Southern Sweden it's totally different. I might just stop for a coffee and cinnamon bun in the cafe too!

Have a lovely day!

A breath of fresh air in Stockholm

This space in Stockholm by Folkhem is like a breath of fresh air. I love the light coloured wood together with the white and shades of grey.

I love the Scandinavian furniture they've chosen including the fab Under the Bell Pendant light (last picture) and the Around Coffee Table, both by Muuto. Using a Vitra DCW chair (15% off with code MYSCAN) in the sitting room is never wrong either!

If it were my home I'd have to add a few more pieces and mess it all up a little but the bones are definitely there. What do you say?
