A home with red floors - with surprising results!

Wednesday, 27 May 2015

It's not often you come across a home with bright red floors throughout, even in Holland where there's a general love of vibrant pops of colour (alla this and this home). I was sceptical I must say, but when I took the tour of the home (beautifully captured by Holly and Jansje) I was pleasantly surprised. Owners Sanne (an industrial designer) and Tim (an architect), bought this lovely space by the sea in The Hague back in 2013 and set about renovating it one design move at a time. They've filled the house with vintage treasures and upcycled furniture collected over the years (the shelves in the sitting room are made from reclaimed stair treads!) as well as the odd modern find. The result is a relaxed, eclectic and vibrant family home. Let's take a tour...

Wow! What a lovely home. I love the quirky touches and blend of old and new. And of course their cute children!

And what did you make of the painted red floor?

I had the pleasure of meeting Holly and Jansje when they came to photograph my home last year. Such a talented duo! Other spaces shot By Jansje include Tina Fussell's lovely Danish home (also styled by Holly) and a Dutch home in a former children's nursery.

If you fancy a little more beautiful Dutch inspiration today, there's also a whole archive to explore here (scroll passed the first one as it might be this home), I do love a dose of Dutch style, don't you?

Have a lovely day!

Small space - big monochrome heart

Tuesday, 26 May 2015

Today I'm taking my inspiration from this small space in Gothenburg, Sweden. Black, white and plenty of plants. Such a simple combination and yet so striking. I particularly love the dining area which is awash with natural sunlight and fresh flowers. I could wile away a day here, how about you?

Lovely! I do love my black and white homes, how about you? 

A few items I know and love - the Vitra wire chair is similar, HAY Bella table, THE POSTER CLUB sells many of these prints. The golden bell light is similar to the brass one in the dining space. 

Have a wonderful day!

A 100 year old Southern Sweden house / give-away winner

Monday, 25 May 2015

Hello Monday, you've come around quickly?  I thought I'd kick off the week with a lovely house in Österlen, an area of rolling hills, fresh pastures and beautiful beaches East of Malmö. It's home to many artists thanks to the lovely light and so worth a visit if you're ever in Southern Sweden. This red brick home in the heart of Österlen is 100 years old this year and has been beautifully refurbished with careful attention to the detail and character of the original 'Doctor's House'. What a delight?!

Fantastic Frank

Oh, and did I mention it's for sale?! Could you live here?

I'm loving the raised den in the children's room - what a great touch?! The selection of different shaped vases on the dining table look so pretty and yet such a simple idea to recreate, and the Moroccan tiles (try made in mano for similar) used as wall decoration in the bedroom - what a fab idea?!

Is there anything that stands out to you?

A few items I know and love: Kitchen - House Doctor rug / series 7 chairs. Dining room: Normann Copenhagen Bell lights / try Farrow & Ball Railings for a similar grey and H&M Home for a selection of vases. Sitting room: Eames RAR rocking chair / Stockholm rug / Hay cushion. Bedroom: linen bedding, Moroccan tiles on wall. Children's bedroom: Hay cushions

Thank you so much to everyone who entered the weekend give-away - the winner has now been!!

Have a great start to the week.
