Stylish Swedish Home

A beautiful Swedish apartment with white and dark tones mixed throughout. The colours inside the apartment look like they reflect somewhat the brick tones in the apartment seen outside the window..very rich and warm. A charming kids room with pastel pompoms and check out the number of lamps used in the rooms. Lovely styling..

Happy New Year all! I hope this holiday season was a special one for all of you. I have to say that I am happy to see 2014 go and look forward to a fresh new year. It feels like a blank slate where we can create anything we want doesn't it! 

One of the changes coming up very soon on the blog is a total redesign of my site! I have been working on it for some time and really look forward to launching it soon so stay tuned!

My Top Posts of 2014 are of homes that really made me go ahhhh....Sometimes I see a home and I can see myself living there...as well as a few other mixed posts. Take a look by clicking on the links...

1. My first video of the year was where I shared how to set a beautiful table.

Bedroom Benches

Benches (or couches) really finish the look of a room. I would love to have a bench at the end of my bed but you do need a fair size room to get this look. Some of these gorgeous benches would fit in a smaller space like the wooden one in the first photo. I love how they styled the bench in this picture but it would have looked equally good without anything on it at all. I love the couch designer Christine Dovey added to the end of the bed in the second photo. The entire room is beautifully done.

What type of bench would you add to a bedroom?

Inspired Space, Beautiful Blog

I am in love with the gorgeous blog of stylist/photographer Line Kay of Vintagepiken. Her home is styled to perfection and her photographs are so beautiful! Really I could look at her blog over and over. It is peaceful and thoughtful, creative and inspired..just like her home. You must go and look at her photos not only of her home but of the many wonderful ways she styles food, flowers.....and just about everything else with the utmost taste and sophistication.

Vintage White Home

This is the gorgeous vintage home of Vanessa Pleasants the blogger at The Vintage Whites . It really is a wonderful space filled with worked wood and vintage items collected over time. Pretty lights in the kitchen and dining room add a warm touch to the rooms and that green is the perfect shade! Love the antique mantel in the living room paired with the vintage couch. Super cute home....

Knit One, Pearl Two

Knitting is such a big trend right now and knitted items are really all over in home accessories and fashion. Big chunky knits looks so great in a throw or stool cover and now you can find rugs as well. So I was working on a ceramic project last week and decided to add a bit of textured wool to the piece. I went and bought some wool and when I got home I decided to finger knit the wool into a long tube. I went on line to find out how to do it..... So easy! In a short time I had created a long chunky tube of wool that I could easily have turned into a scarf....and it was fun. Who new knitting could be so fun and so easy? Any knitters out there?

Perfect Party Home

This house looks like the perfect place to have a party don't you think? Amazing kitchen area that opens up to a big table and the back yard and a living room that does the same. So great with guests going in and out of the house moving around from one room to the other....The house is for rent through Light Locations and it would be wonderful for a photo or video shoot as well. Lots of light and well styled it presents so well.

Go onto their website to see all the photos of this house and the many more they have for rent. Gorgeous!

 

Enjoy!

Bright White Apartment

The Swedish real estate site Stadshem just keeps getting better and better at featuring theses amazing homes for sale. The styling of the various apartments, often very small such as the one I showed last month and this one here, is so good! They really know how to make it look so appealing and are super inspiration for anyone trying to add some accessories to change up the home. They always use really cool lamps and wonderful throws to dress up the space. I love the three different tables grouped together in front of the couch. Very clever.

White on White

Oh this is one of those super houses I come across that I just love. Anyone that can do white on white this well is a star for me. Line Kay, who is a stylist and photographer as well as the owner of this home, has such good taste. (you must check out her Instagram ....swoon!) A bit of natural wood and accessories in wood tones break up the white but keep the right mood at the same time. The white wood floors are such a favourite!

Are you brave enough to do white on white like this?

Under the Eves

Such a pretty little loft in France with slanted roofs that give this space such a lovely coziness. Love the bathroom with the glass and the open plan and black accents. Wood timbers add definition to the ceiling and bring warmth and texture. A tiny kitchen in black provides good contrast in this all white space.

Hope you are having a great start to the week!
