Just a quick note from a terribly busy Mia. Above could be The nicest real estate pic ever seen. As a photo of an apartment for sale – not a page in an interior design mag – it’s kind of groundbreaking. Great composition and gorgeous style! Homely, creative and top-trendey. Fantastic Frank is the phenomena to praise. Realizing I’m being starved of interior pics that truly inspires me, I need to share this treasure too, found in Vogue Living. There are some common style features in these two pics, and they undoubtedly represent something I yern to see more of!
Right now – is the time to derive inspiration from nature’s vibrant colours and bring it inside. Soon enough the leaves are falling and along comes a cold (but hopefully snowy white) winter. A muted yellow (almost mustard) wall, decorated with a mix of old mirrors is a great idea I think. With some nice rugs as an extra warming element. Boosting of joy, warmth & energy! And why not go dramatic red? Just for a wall. That red wall is like a vitmain pill in the countryish kitchen, instantly lifting your spirits. | pics via hus & hem |
You think my last few posts are a bit lame? Suspecting I’ve moved over to the white side? No worries :) It was just a detour, very inspired by the city I live in. My firm opinion is, still, that the interior design world suffer from a lack of bohemian inspiration. Personal, homey, eclectic, cozy & quicky interiors. That is what Trendey primarily wants to share. Now, how about some gorgeous bedrooms?
A year or so ago, I had such a crush on headboards! Back in the days when Henen was blogging too, we talked quite a lot about it (just look at this post and feel the drool..) This particular headboard in the bottom pic, comes from the family love tree. These two bedrooms are very nicely decorated I think, with gorgeous colour schemes. Far from dull & strict white! Happy weekend!
I’m still deeply into the Stockholm styling compartment (owing to a project I’m involved in) and just wanted to share these beautiful pics I came across via a beautiful living. I maintain my opinion white is no colour at all = boring, but can not deny that all-white can serve very well as a backdrop for creativity through furniture & decor. Retro furniture – in that old, middle-brown wood colour – certainly gets a new life in an all-white setting.
Just a quick post to share these two smart tricks I have kept in my vault :)
The best kitchen cabinets handles ever are the ones you made yourself! I did this with a drawer some time ago (here) and it’s really easy piecy (use a nice leather belt). No doubt it works wonderful in a kitchen! Loving this kitchen btw| the pic via nib | Secondly, it’s about washi tape. Seen around in many variations of use, but here’s the top trick in my opinion: Tape it around tealights! At almost no cost – great effect. | pic via trendenser | So, again, ’til next time – happy weekend!
Happy you liked the sthlm style post! Here’s another one!, an extraordinary fine example of the Stockholm style of styling. And actually, of a gorgeous Stockholm apartment in itself. 2 rooms & a kitchen, currently for sale @ estate agent reimersholme fastighetsmäkleri. First of all, it’s gorgeous in itself. A building from the 1910’s, in which the period details such as the tile stove (pic above) and the serving cabinet (middle pic below) are preserved. Also, it has the typical high ceilings (almost 3 metres) and beautiful bay windows. Stylingwise the key word is: sparse! Walls are painted Stockholm-white, all over, and the lovely wide-plank floors (in trendy pine wood!) are newly sanded and fresh. I think I’ll let the rest of the sparse styling speak for itself :) Must say though the Dali print is magnificent.
Three favourites (click to view enlarged). The pretty yet edgy kitchen area with the lovely vintage poster, the serving cabinet and the hallway/lovely floors, and thirdly a laid-back masculine style corner. There’s a bunch of more nice pics to look at all here. No cut flowers, no fruits in a bowl, just a beautiful place.
To me, this is somewhat typical (trendy) Stockholm style. The white backdrop, with some wood elements, and stylewise some distinct retro & industrial influences. And the globetrotter is there, in a poster and a throw that says New York, and an ethnic-patterned cushion. A creative vibe. Liking it! | pic via reimersholme fastighetsmäkleri |
