It’s been a long time…! I might be back. For now, enjoy these gorgeous pics of Isabelle McAllister’s Stockholm flat.
This lovely home is currently for sale with Fantastic Frank.
OK, I had more. Once I’m on it – I can’t stop!
I’m loving this style: Countryish and granny-esque in city surroundings. The unexpected inside of the outside – that always wins. Now imagine this a NYC flat, not a countryside hose (I named it countryside trendification some time ago – a cool thing). It surely is a thin line between oldish boring and eclectic cool – definitely – but it is at the same time totally easy to determine. In this case – above – the cute-ish wallpapers have made company with trendy paintings and cushions. A great mix. Also liking that the chandelier lacks candles. But I would push it one step further and mix the chairs (odd chair mix), that would complete it…! Very homely and nice. Pic via hus & hem.
Nextly, this bedroom decor is simple yet interesting. That oval painting sets the scene together with the tea pot, and harmony comes with all else in blue+wood/rusty colour. I’m liking the laidbackness. I could stay here many nights sipping tea reading ‘whodunit’s’. Pic via vt wonen.
Lastly for today, I find this an extraordinary great example of a kids room decor. Not childish/foolish, but still exciting and interesting for a kid (via elle decor). The orphan bed (!) is cool and so is the reindeer, the globetrotterish – and educational – map, the bothanical wall art and hey, have a look at the trendy patterened floor… It’s time to renew that old floor now! (unless it’s wood of course, I’d never change wood for tiles or plastic/tiles). Patterned floors, floors, floors – or rugs, rugs rugs, – that’s the buzz for aw2013/14.
Hellu! :) Hope all is very fine and that the summer has been sunny & relaxing. It’s been a while, so there’s lot’s of decor inspiration coming up! I couldn’t choose between a bed- or bath or living-roomed themed post, or a countryish or eclectic, so instead here’s one big bunch of pics that’s burning hot at the mo – when late Summer is turning into fall.
Firstly, it’s a great idea to keep the summer intact inside with some floral fabrics and/or happy colours. Loving this – trendy! – color scheme. Greys and colour sparkle (left pic via French camengo, a fabric named “portobello”; right via the Dutch home decor inspiration vtwonen ). Moving on to…
…my fave pic, in the latest issue of my fave magazine (i.e. Elle Decoration UK), September 2013. Again, I’m loving the fresh new scheme – dusty pink with greenish grey – lovely with some copper details and also there’s a trend spotting alert here: Floor patterned rugs. Or well, floor patterns in all forms! And hey, the ikat pillow is gorgeous, don’t you think? I just bought one yesterday for our bedroom, with an orange ikat pattern (at Bromma blocks, a shopping mall in Stockholm). Now let’s stop for a while and indulge in these beautiful floors….
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate Moroccan tiles. I’d say yes to these two floors without an eye blink! Left via sköna hem, right via unknown source (if someone knows, please tell me). Gorgeous. Why – in the whole wide world – choose white or beige or any other boring tiles when you can have this beautifulness?
This is from the cover of another of my other fav magazines, Elle decor. You can not really tell whether it’s a rug or the floor – anyway, it’s nicely patterned! And a great combination of colours. Loving the pile of books and the other details too (like the drinks trolley!).
These pics above are just so nice, I think. Symbolising how walls vs still life can work wonders together.( Left via vt wonen, right via hus & hem). Lastly….
The 2014 IKEA catalogue! The best page of it, imho. Browse it here. ‘ill next time, decorate from your heart!
Oh, and while I’m at it – plates is certainly a compartment of its own. Both in terms of a decor item in itself and as a table decor/eating equipment. Regarding the first, I love how the plates uplift this kitchen (via hus & hem):
And as regards both decor and/or eating gear, I recently bought a few plates from Swedish personality/blogger/creative gal Anitha Schulman. Loving them! The series is called “Stories from the sea” and it has several colour opitions ready for an eclectic mix. Anitha has designed the collection together with a reknowned tattoo artist. Gorgeousness! (I think she ships internationally too).
Just to let you know Trendey hasn’t disappeared from the face of internet!, here’s some summer goodies. Staring off mid-centuryish….
…who doesn’t love these chairs? Via weekdaycarnival. And secondly, my love for morroccan tile patterns will never grow old..
Thirdly, here’s a shot from Swedish journalist & TV-presenter Ann Söderlund’s summer house (via Elle Interiör). How I yearn for a retreat like this with decor being some combo of Scandi + folklore+ Danish colour splashes + ethno + whatever! :)
’til next time! Enjoy the sun.
