A picture of calm in a Swedish home

Thursday, 26 November 2015

There is something beautiful about the simplicity of the space. It helps that the entire apartment has the most stunning blonde wood floors and large windows too. But to me, the most striking element is the kitchen - loving the black cabinet doors. They make such a striking contrast with the rest of the open-plan space. Although the home has been home-staged for sell -  there really are people that can and do live in this minimalist way, and, being a rather messy person myself, I truly appreciate the aesthetics, it creates an incredibly calm, serene feel, don't you think? Let's take a tour...

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items I know and love: 7 series chairs, Dualit toaster, Artichoke pendant light, white linen bedding with black trim.

More lovely monochrome spaces include the striking minimalist home of a Danish architect, a truly fabulous home in Fontainbleu, France and lovely pics from the home of a Swedish stylist.

Other links from around the web today...

The IKEA refugee shelters are a game changer.

I'm excited to be featured in Elle Decor Italy this week (interview in Italian). 

Three pretty Christmas wreath ideas for your door (love the stars!). 

Love the table setting at this friends giving feast.

Have a lovely day, and Happy Thanksgiving to Americans around the world today!

A day at a snowy log cabin / DIY Christmas ideas

Wednesday, 25 November 2015

Hello! How are you today? I have to say I'm feeling a little worse for wear after an evening out with the girls last night (totally self-inflicted I admit!). It's slow mornings like this when I dream of spending the day hiding out at a log cabin. In fact, If I could choose,  my day would look a lot like this. Fancy joining me?!

Sooooo cosy!  

In case you're's the recipe for the hot chocolate with chocolate dipped cinamon marshmallows.  All the bedding in the last picture is available here. See a full tour of that stunning Italian Osteria wedding (how pretty?). There's a great DIY guide to the wreath.

Lots more pretty Christmas / winter inspiration here

Oh, and how cute are these mini Nordic Christmas tree mobiles? They come in a cool little 3D DIY kit...

So pretty and simple - the perfect DIY to create together with your little ones (alongside these 'pepparkaka' or ginger biscuit ideas - I can smell the cinnamon from here!), don't you think?

How would your ideal day look?

Have a lovely day, I'll be back tomorrow with a full house tour again!

PS Happy Thanksgiving to all of you heading off for a long weekend...
