Windows are very important in every interior. Old factory windows have an industrial and modern design. The usual black colour against a white interior make them jump out and attract the eye even more than a normal window. These traditional windows are often found in old churches and factories. Though that they have single glazing, they can be isolated with a special type of glass, making them excellent for residences.
This spacious and colourful home is situated in warm and sunny Melbourne. Owners Will and Lauren live here with their daughter Matilda. The home is in old-British Edwardian style but is completely renovated into a modern home by architect Clare Cousins.
The large windows create much light in the already very airy living room. A beautiful base of white and wood creates a neutral and elegant look with a calm atmosphere. The bright colourful accents in yellow and blue give an interesting twist.
Yesterday, Denham the Jeanmaker opened its new store at the Lombardenvest in Antwerp. A popular shopping street with other brands like Acne and Scotch & Soda. In the Netherlands you can find the brand in the well-known 9 streets of Amsterdam, their hometown.
Last year they opened a bar in Amsterdam which ought to be the place to go for women to shop a perfectly fitting new pair of jeans making the journey to find a good pair fun. The all-women bar, right beside the women’s shop and close to the men’s store and service shop offers the full assortment of jeans. It even includes a unique 300° mirror, making it easy to check the fitting perfectly.
It has a very open and feminine, though tough appeal. All jeans stand out perfectly in the all-white store, creating a calming atmosphere. The use minimal details of plants and garments are just enough. I really like the denim coloured rug! All beautiful tones of blue attract the eye. When passing the store, you cannot just walk by, but have to take a look inside.
Sometimes you can find amazing gems, one just needs a little help. I stumbled upon the TUTZE Store, not that far away from me in Harderwijk in the Netherlands. This store focuses on interior and lifestyle products which are trendy but exclusive, made out of natural products yet affordable.
The shop is in the style of a real home with a complete dining and living area. The pledge itself is all white with black and neutral as other basic colours and added tones of blue. It looks a lot like a home where I would like to live in!
I already like their webshop very much and I cannot wait to visit the store in real life.
Were you already familiar with TUTZE? Have you visited the store yet?
This is the very inspiring apartment of Nils and Sofia Odier in Skåne, Sweden. Nils is a fashion photographer, Sofia a stylist. You can imagine that combination works well together. Put in a little bit of Lotta Agaton’s flair and you get the best result one could wish for. Of course, with a base of black-white-wood-greenery..
Ever seen a complete home in neutral colours, without it being boring? There’s tons of white, there’s some black and then there’s a fair amount of wood.
Though the colour palette is neutral, the distinct items draw attention like the little rocking chair, the beautifully simple baskets in the bathroom and the living room seats. This home is clearly run by someone with a great taste for interior design. The Toronto based cottage is the home of Canadian’s House & Home editor Suzanne Dimma.
“No, it looks way too cold, I already get chilly when I look at it.” “But you can install underfloor heating?” “Don’t care, I don’t like it.” Those where his final words, so no more arguing, no concrete floor for me. I can’t even speak to his mind by showing this apartment of Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen, a Danish designer, stylist and photographer and the founder of Norm Architects. Norm Architects also happens to design for Menu, which is directly noticeable by the minimalistic and geometrical style they use through their designs, resulting in timeless but innovative items. With perfect aesthetics, that is.
This way of designing is also reflected in the interior of Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen. His home, close to Copenhagen shows his fine feeling for refinement. The light and open spaced house is a combination of sleek design and natural materials. The gigantic closet in the bedroom does not reach all the way to the ceiling, indicating there is some sort of hidden room in there, creating some sort of mystical touch..
‘Couldn’t be white enough’ would my mother in law say. If someone’s into white interiors, she is. Though this isn’t the home of my mother in law, but it sure could be! This frost white home belongs to interior design and photography blogger Elisabeth Heier and is full of perfect details. The crisp white throughout the interior creates a clean base causing the interesting details to stand out even more. The paintings, the greenery, the stack of magazines and the interesting shapes and materials. It’s all in the details.
To be able to create a consistent interior in our new apartment, I’m looking for the perfect examples to get inspired with. Thus this results in a completely loaded inspirational post, with all beautiful interiors. I’m quite sure what our home will look like quite soon.

This table setting has the right amount of gold in it, without looking overdone. Combined with the little greenery, the nuts and all the white, this looks like a perfect setting. Gold is just a colour that screams Christmas to me, thus making it almost irreplaceable on the table.
