Interiors: Lotta Agaton

This is the home of the wonderful Swedish stylist and blogger Lotta Agaton. She clearly has the most amazing personal style and her home reflects that completely. It is incredibly simple but each piece is so interesting within the space...black and white and a mix of textures and materials. Love it!

Go and see her new website by the way. So inspiring!! 

Enjoy!

Country French

I love this style of decor and show it fairly often on the blog. So beautiful with the grain sack chair, the slip covered chairs in the dining room and the canopy over the bed. All gorgeous touches that make this home really special. It is so easy to add a few of these elements into a home and really change the look. Of course having a Mora clock in the entry and the gorgeous layered console table are also great ways to get the French Country look!

Enjoy!

Wonderful White Home

This home is floor to ceiling white and I just cannot get enough of it! Most of the rooms in this home are painted white and even the stairway is all white with no contrasting wood at all. There are small touches of colour found here and there in the furniture and on the walls in the upstairs bedrooms. Love the white/grey washed wood wall, floor and cupboards in the kitchen. Even this seems like a big contrast against the entry and living room. Simple and beautiful!

Enjoy!

Inspiration in White: Red and White Linen

So much to love about red and white linens. They feel typically French and many of the grain sack pillows, hand towels and table runners we are seeing are made with these incredibly durable linen and hemp materials from France, Belgium and Germany. I especially love the linens that have initials embroidered onto the piece. Some of these linens are up to a 100 years old so it makes you wonder about the original family that took the time to stitch their grain sacks. 

I am starting a collection of antique linens that I think could be a bit dangerous as once you buy a few pieces you can not resist looking for more. I have added the cushions below to my shop and have also added a wonderful table runner in red and an oatmeal colour.  Also have a gorgeous vintage chair upholstered in a red and white hemp grain sack. Just beautiful!

Cushions available in my shop made from Antique French Grain sack.

Love this bag made from linen..

Pretty embroidered frabric on this settee.

Vintage chair covered in red and white grain sack. This one is in the shop!

 

This is such a great idea from Dreamy Whites! What a nice way to bring a gift of a bottle of wine to your hostess.

This is the table runner and Grain Sack cushion available in the shop! Love how it looks against the white settee!

 

Enjoy!

Designer Home 

I really like Rue Magazine and the latest issue has got some great homes and ideas.

This months feature is on designer Caitlin Flemming. The home that she decorated below is actually the home of her mother and their collaboration was obviously a labour of love..and great taste. So simple... but the pieces! The gorgeous mirror in the living room, the armoire in the dining room and of course the amazing antique bed (I am afraid I would have to paint that bed white. I featured a really similar bed on Facebook in white and it is to die for!).

Enjoy!
