Natural wood & white interior: A Scandinavian home in the countryside

I love a beautiful Scandinavian home and natural wood + white walls is a combo that I find increasingly soothing and attractive. Maybe it is the fact that I spend more time out of the city, surrounded by nature and truth to be told, the first thing I do now in the morning, is (still wearing my PJs) putting my gumboots on to feed our chickens. Maybe, it is the fact that we live 20 minutes from the beach, surf twice a week and get a massive salty injection from the Atlantic Ocean and all its raw, wild beauty. With its high ceilings, white walls, pale wood and natural textured accents, this home exudes all these things that one can imagine in a home by the beach, don’t you think?Located in the south of Sweden, near Malmö (a city I only know from the extremely brilliant crime series The Bridge), this home combines tranquillity, modernity and embodies a very soothing, welcoming feel. Don’t you love houses filled with natural light and big windows where you can …

A beautiful home in Greece

Kalimera! A beautiful home in Greece

Greece is one of those travel destinations that ticks many boxes in my book…I love mediterranean food and I’m quite happy to eat grilled fish, fresh salads with feta cheese and eggplants at each meal providing I don’t have to cook. The landscape in Greece is also very beautiful and as a white interiors lover, those little white houses with gorgeous blue accents scream Summer to me. Greece is also still reasonably affordable as a holiday destination. Umm…maybe one destination that I should add to my places to go for 2018. Have you been recently!?

An industrial flat in Barcelona with an amazing kitchen

A cosy white flat with an amazing kitchen

This white apartment in Barcelona, is quite different from this small but so nicely styled 20sqm2 flat or this white flat I showed you a few weeks ago but it has a lot of inspiration to offer… Starting with the kitchen which was the room that first caught my eye. The kitchen manages to combine several styles I like at once: Scandinavian, industrial, contemporary and vintage with a bit of urban jungle and yet everything is beautifully done with a great aesthetic and strong personality.

How to style your home with picture frames

A 20 sqm2 flat with a beautiful gallery wall

Hi guys, did you see the last house tour in Sweden? Today’s flat is also in Sweden but I couldn’t help sharing it with you because I thought it was a perfect example of how to decorate your home with art and create a gallery wall. The other thing that I love about this flat is that it is only 20 sqm2! So it’s a small space, yet everything is beautifully styled and there isn’t a single corner I don’t love…proof that size doesn’t matter.

Hello everyone! If you’ve been a reader of my blog for a while, you know that white interiors is my first love so today, I’m taking inspiration from this beautiful white apartment with lovely natural accents. I love how lived-in and cosy it feels. It’s not a big place but it is a beautiful space don’t you think?

A beautiful old blacksmith studio renovated in Greece

A renovated blacksmith studio in Greece

I have a thing for high ceilings, don’t you? I also very much love plywood or any architectural buildings and dwellings made out of wood for that matter and if you haven’t seen my recent post, check this beautiful minimalist kitchen. This gorgeous space above, is an old blacksmith studio built in 1930 renovated by Dorte Mandrup-Poulsen, Louis Becker and Jens Thomas Arnfred, three Danish Architects who happen to be friends too. Eight years ago, they decided to buy this old blacksmith’s warehouse on the Greek island of Lesbos so they could all go on holidays together with their respective families, isn’t this wonderful!?

Last week, I featured two shots from this Dutch home photographed by Sonja Velda, first in my post about these four beautiful white kitchens with concrete floor and then this amazing sliding door in my DETAILS series. I thought the house was so beautiful that it was worth showing you the rest of it. I have also found out since then, that the vintage patchwork on the sliding door was a wallpaper by Studio Onszelf which made my day as this will be a lot easier to use! So without further ado, let me show the rest of this fabulous, family home.
