With the first sunbeams of spring peaking through the clouds and the temperatures rising up to double number degrees one can’t wait to go outside. Gardens need to be made spring proof and balconies need to be tidied up. As not everyone has a big garden (yours truly included), and balconies are fun and easy to maintain ánd can look very cozy and intimate. Space is often limited, so you need to improvise and be creative to make it work. Nevertheless, even the smallest balconies can be great!
So, how to make your balcony spring-proof?
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..
Who doesn’t like to travel? To explore the world around you? Examine new cultures and habits and see what beauty the earth has to offer? Personally, I love to plan my next trips, find out which place I want to discover and dream about walking around in remote area’s in distant countries.
I get really impressed by following @natgeo on Instagram, for example. The beautiful images keep me dreaming about the trips I’ve already made and the trips I should make in the future.
What inspires me also is the idea of having a massive vintage world map on the now empty wall in our living room. We are looking around to find the perfect world map to place on our wall. I’ve had this idea for quite a while now, though now I have the favourable circumstance to actually place one.
How do you feel about world maps? Do you like the idea of having a huge map on the wall? If you have any tips of a giant (vintage) maps, please let me know!
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.
When the real hassle about the food has been resolved, the next issue pops-up. How to serve it? Als you probably want to splurge a little, as it’s a special event, you’re using your finest dishes and tableware. I’m showing you a couple of options. Just keep it save, keep it simple.
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.
To have one designer to style your apartment is pleasant, to say the least. Imagine the outcome when three designers are given the bridle. Can’t be but astonishing. This 72m2, two bedroom apartment is a joy to look at. The fireplace has a central role in each design, though the setting differs.
No matter which designer you’d choose, either way it looks good. As we speak about choosing, which one would you prefer? I’ve already made up my mind.. or have I? Beware for a lot of inspiration!
Ah threes, the lungs of the earth. Though people are against the massive chopping of forests, every year again, tons of fir trees are (sustainably) chopped just for being a temporarily decorative items. Personally, I don’t mind having a fake tree, as it is much easier (oh the lazy person) and honestly, better looking in shape.
Christmas is often the chance to pile it on and go loose with all sorts of decorative items. Being an advocate of less is more, I searched for Christmas trees with a minimalistic touch.
Do you like these minimalistic trees?
