The stunning Bavarian home of a photographer

You know when homes have a friend's name written all over them? This incredible space found over at Vosges Paris  was made for my sister, Cas! She loves vintage pieces (cinema seats, step ladders, tables), art photography and industrial lighting.  But the home of German photographer Petra Reger and her family in Kompton, Bavaria is oh so much more too. Petra's home decorating style is part industrial, part vintage, part designer, part rock 'n' roll. Throw in the beautiful bones of the apartment including the original plaster wall in the kitchen and 100 year old parquet flooring and the result is an incredibly striking and unique home fit for a creative. How cool is this space?

I'm such a big fan of the graphical monochrome look, it's just so striking.

Is this your kind of style?

A few items I know and love: Designer chairs: Panton, LCW, Knoll Diamond and Series 7 . Choose your own neon light letters here.  Try Etsy for industrial scissor lamps (that's where I found mine), keep an eye on ebay for cinema chairs. An Apple monitor in Petra's workspace. To get the sitting room look try the Zanotta three seater sofa, the Tulip side table is similar and Zettel Z 6 pendant light. Anything I've missed?

Other fab monochrome spaces with a vintage touch here, here and here. Or if you like a touch of colour, did you see yesterday's post?

Time to pack for Dalarna (I'll still be posting!). Before I shoot off, a quick reminder to stop by this weekend to enter the give-away intended to light up your St Valentine's Day. Oooo, intriguing?! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

PS Speaking of my sister, I sent her some uber cosy Swedish fleece tights and they haven't arrived - did Mr Postman accidentally put them through your (London) door?! #mysistersgettingcold!

A charming and relaxed Dutch home

This lovely home by a canal in Amersfoort, The Netherlands, oozes charm and happiness. The family of four - Irene, her husband and two little girls - designed the living space themselves and centred everything around the home-made dining table where they like to gather. When Irene is not working as an assistant Product Manager she is busy hunting for flee market finds and working on cool DIY projects around her home which are documented on her blog. I love the relaxed, personal  feel of the space. It makes me want to embark on a few DIY projects of my own, how about you?

Anything that stands out to you in particular? 

I really like the kitchen dresser. Irene painted it in several colours before deciding on mint green (try Farrow & Ball Teresa's green or Pale Powder for a similar effect). Other Dutch homes with great examples of hand painted furniture include this and this home).

You can see more of this home captured by Celine Nuberg and a full write up (in Dutch) here.

Since we're going all out Dutch today - you might want to check out other fab homes from The Netherland's previously featured here including this, this and this one. I love the use of colour!

Have a lovely day!

PS I'm so pleased to see the return of wonderful sponsor Dorayaky, a shop selling 100% handmade bags. Each bag is designed and manufactured by the creative duo Auroro Pérez and Fernando Albero in their studio in Valencia, Spain. The result is a range of personal handbags which capture their love for design and well-made objects.

Shades of grey in a lovely Gothenburg home

Well, hello Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week so far? We're gearing up for a snowy week in Dalarna (famous for the Dala horse) at a friends cottage, I'm sure there'll be some instagram pics on the go! But before then there's still several oh so fab home tours to share this week. Starting with this lovely Gothenburg home decorated in I don't how many shades of grey (but probably not as many as 50 te he!). A touch of natural material (rattan and wooden) has been added to create a warm, relaxed feel. I could make myself at home here, how about you?
