A cosy weatherboard cottage interior

The final home tour of the week always needs to be fabulous. I search in particular for somewhere that warms the heart, somewhere perhaps where you could see yourself spending the weekend. And this home hits the mark. Spotted over at blog extraordinaire Design Sponge, the 1890's weatherboard cottage in Queensland, Australian is home of photographer and stylist Kara Rosenlund and her husband. It's crammed with beautiful treasures collected over the years from all their travels as well as local vintage finds. Kara takes a lot of her inspiration from nature and you can seen this in the autumnal colours and mix of browns and whites. Could you spend your weekend here?!

Photography and styling by Kara Rosenlund via Design Sponge with thanks. 

Oh so lovely. What a home! 

I've actually shown Kara's home before here. Can you believe it's the same home? It looks completely different (beautiful in another way) which just goes to show how you can transform a home! 

Some of the items such as the horse and outback print can be found in Kara's shop (don't miss her limited edition sea print too - so stunning!).

You can see more images and read more about Kara's home here

This is the second brown and white themed home this week (other one here, in case you missed it!). What a beautiful combination. 

And how cute is this autumn outfit (found in the archives while I was looking for inspiration)?! 

Don't forget to pop back tomorrow to enter my weekend give-away!

A beautiful white apartment with notes of grey, green and brass

Normally I try to select the best pictures from a home tour so you can get an idea of the space. Today I had no option but to show the complete home. Every. Single. Angle. Because, to me, this Swedish home in Gothenburg is simply beautiful! Grey, green and brass, what a fabulous colour combination and so very now! 


Wow, what an incredible space, don't you think?! Can you believe it's actually for sale....Gothenburg anyone?!

It definitely calls for a what's what list (I wish I knew where every singe item is from but sadly I don't so we'll need to work together on this one). Here's my round up: HAY DLM side table, Grey lamp from IKEA, Love this and this cushion with triangles. Pia WallĂ©n cross blanket. Thonet 214 and 209 chair. Golden Bell light. 'D' and 'X' posters from here. Source a vintage black leather sofa on Lauritz. The fireplace is a classic Swedish 'Kakelugn'. Is there anything you recognise and love?

Have a lovely day!

A cool vintage inspired space in Stockholm

There's something the neighbourhood. Well actually, just on this blog. The night fairy (aka Ana at Blog Milk) has been in while we were asleep and moved things around a little. Even I got a shock this morning and I was the one that instigated it! Do you think you can get used to the change? I hope so! Something that's not strange though is this fantastic apartment in Stockholm. The open plan living area with it's array of vintage items is incredibly cool. I love the graphical style and mix of light grey and wood.  How about you?

Pretty cool don't you think?

I love the way the shoes are stored on open shelving in the hallway. Although I know this is not everyone's cup of tea - what's your verdict? Do you remember this and this post showing ways to use your shoes to decorate your home (or there's even displaying shoes up the stairs on on picture frames?!) If ever there was an excuse to buy a fabulous pair of heels.

Something I'm starting to see creep into homes is the floral sofa like in the sitting room here - a throw back to the eighties and nineties. A big trend for 2015?

A few items I see and love: the pendant light over the dining table looks similar to the Louis Poulsen in white. The dining chairs are similar to the 209 Thonet chair. Source vintage items such as the bar stools on Etsy

Have a lovely day!
