A fabulous mid-century modern home in Los Angeles

This a-ma-zing Los Angeles Home of stylist Jessica De Ruiter was shot by Pia Ulin for Kinfolk Home - interiors for slow living. How apt. I could do just that in this space - starting with the pool! At first I was struck by the fabulous architecture (the home was built in 1953), and then I peeped inside and fell in love with the decor too.  Formerly an artist's home and studio, the family have adapted the Silver-Lake home to their needs but kept many of the original features. I love the earthy tones and soft textures and will you just look at that built in sofa, nook, and storage as well as the classic mid-century pieces? What a truly inspiring space...

This is such a dream space. I could absolutely live 'slow' here - could you?!

A few items I know and love: Safari chair. Pick up original mid-century chairs at Live Auctioneers. Houseology sells super soft neutral toned blankets like these. White sheepskin rugs/ throws.

Even though I have a tiny garden I still squirrel away lots of swimming pool inspiration here. For that day when... 

More fabulous mid-century inspired homes include a Scandinavian home, a space in Berlin and a Gothenburg apartment. Got to love this style?!

Have a lovely day!

A stunning Swedish apartment in neutrals

I noticed on one of my favourite Norwegian blogs yesterday that they've received their first dusting of snow up there - brrrrr!  There isn't any in the South of Sweden yet (although I'd love some to arrive in time for Christmas) but it is getting a tad dark. I think that's why I love this Swedish home today - it has a beautiful warm glow to it. The neutral shades. the rattan, the wood. The parquet flooring. And of course, the room used as an artist's studio. Not to mention the prettiest cat! Can you spot her?!

What a stunning space?

Did you spot the kitty cat?! She's super cute (and fits right in amongst the greys!) - incidentally Off black by F&B is a similar paint hue to that gorgeous dark grey on the guest bedroom wall.

Items I know and love: &tradition mass light, flos 265 lamp, DLM side table, source a similar macrame wall hanging here. Safari daybed. Brass dumling table lamp (although I think I prefer this fine specimen of a floor lamp!), sheepskin throw, Fancy finger pillow
The man and I are planning a three day hike in Norway next year (I've been waiting to do a hut to hut as long as I can remember). The lodging is going to be uber important to rest my weary feet (next to a roaring fire of course!)- I'm imagining it to look like this rustic cabin hide-away?! If that's the case - better extend it to a week?! Cabin tips welcome!

Do you have any holiday plans for next year? 

Have a lovely day!

PS I snuck in a late night post of a Zen Swedish home yesterday (in case you missed it....).
