Could you spend your summer in this log cabin?

As the snow falls outside I can't help but dream of cosy cabins. And then I found this one, deep in the heart of the Drents-Friese Wold National Park in Appelscha, The Netherlands (thank you Style Files!). Accessed by a long track, this lovely family owned log cabin is one of those magical places where you could be happy in any season, rain or shine, indoors or out. Imagine reading a book or playing games with family and friends by the wood burning stove? Or exploring the forests on cross-country skis (winter) or by bicycle (summer). There's even a lake for swimming within 500 metres. And the best news? It's available to rent. I know!!

Could you holiday here?

I love the family's Pinterest boards which are built up of snapshots of everyday life at the cottage (which sleeps 8) lovely!

See you at the hand-over?!

I'm thinking why not go all out Dutch today with more inspiration from this lovely cabin and a lorry load of beautiful homes from The Netherlands here, I particularly love this fabulous rental home near Amsterdam.

Have a lovely day!

PS This post is not sponsored by The Netherlands tourist board - although I'd forgive you for thinking it! I'm simply feeling a whole load of love for this wonderful nearby country today!

Monochrome and nude scheme in a lovely Scottish home

I hope you had a great weekend? Or still enjoying your long weekend if you're in the US - not jealous at all...honest!). Today I thought I'd take you on a tour of Deborah's lovely house in Glasgow, Scotland. Deborah's an interior designer and visual merchandiser / stylist (which explains why her home is so lovely) and editor behind fab blog Ollie & Seb's Haus .  She shares her home with her husband and two little boys Oliver and Sebastien (I once showed their bedroom here). If you love monochrome with a soft palette of nudes and creams, you're in for a real treat. And even if you don't, there are plenty of ideas to steal anyway! Here are some of my favourite snapshots of her home...

What do you think? Anything that catches your eye?

I spy some of my favourite pieces: Kristina Dam Palm 1 print, Design House Stockholm work lamp, Thonet 209 chair, Diamond cage light, Faux Poster Collection - A, Grey throw, linen bedding and Mathilda Clahr leather strap.

I went to the University of Edinburgh so it's been a pleasure going on a virtual tour back to Scotland today! I remember our student pad was painted in vivid colours such as deep reds, blues and yellow, with each room a different hue. Very different from today's home tour -  but beautiful its own way.

More black and white spaces here, here and here. Or if you prefer a space in a riot of colours how about this bright home of an artist?

Have a lovely day!

PS Thank you for entering the give-away over the weekend. The competition closed at midnight and the winner will be announced on the give-away post and sent an e-mail later today.

A serene space with a fab bed nook

It's the weekend!! woohooo! And the sun's come out - which, in Sweden in January is something of a rarity. Oh yes, this is going to be a good couple of days. But first, today's home tour. And what a home it is.  This space in Gothenburg, Sweden is a picture of calm and furnished with some fab pieces including Wishbone chairs, the AJ floor lamp and table lamp and Matchilda Clahr's leather straps. And just look at that bed nook (perfect inspiration for a bedroom area in an open plan living space don't you think?). It's like an updated version of this lovely traditional Swedish summer cottage bed nook.  I love the apartment's original period features and original wood floor too. Enjoy the tour…!


Anything that stands out to you in particular?

A popular trend I've noticed in Scandinavia and beyond is to add something over-sized  to a room- like the clock in this kitchen (try this one). Other examples include the very large bedside reading lamps in Lotta Agaton's apartment (for sale here, and previous post about her beautiful home here). In my friend Gen's home you can witness an over-sized angle-poise floor lamp, pendant light, cross print and Stendig calendar. Why? Well, my thoughts are that over-size items create a focal point, an element of surprise as well as incredibly cool and striking effect. What are your thoughts?

Do you have anything over-sized in your home?

Other homes previously shown on here from Entrance include this, this and this one. Do you have a favourite?

Have a really fab couple of days!

PS Don't forget to pop back tomorrow to enter my weekend give-away - I think you're going to be very happy when you see the prize…..oh the suspense!
