Copenhagen Home Of Pottery Lovers Filled With Design Classics

Today I invite you on a photographic tour of this bright and airy Copenhagen home that belongs to Tina, who expertly combines passion for contemporary Nordic design with her love of pottery. The liveability, effortless comfort and cosiness together with high aesthetic value is what I think makes Scandinavian style so attractive. Tina’s home is a wonderful example of this. What I particularly love about this home is abundant but considerate use of design classics, ceramics in simple earthy tones grouped together for best impact (I particularly like window sill displays as I often wonder how to make window sills more interesting), moroccan rugs on the floor – goes perfectly with Nordic style and of course paired down colour scheme.

Mid-century Modern Home Set In A Breath-Taking Location Near Woodstock, NY

Bobby Bui and his partner Gary wanted a mid-century modern home, which are quite rare on the East Coast of the United States, as flat roof homes with walls of glass are not recommended in areas where the climate can be quite cold. When this 1960-s house came on the market, Bobby was especially drawn to it as it reminded him of homes he coveted in his youth while growing up in Southern California. “It really feels like a West Coast home”. Needless to say, this home received multiple offers within the first couple of days on the market, but luck and a strong offer secured it for Bobby and Gary and they moved here in the Fall of 2016. First of all, could you tell me a little bit about the house and what attracted you to it? The house is located in what is considered to be the most famous small town in the United States, Woodstock, NY.   Woodstock has been an arts colony for over 100 years and is also the town …

Create Your Dream Home – Design Masterclass with Abigail Ahern

In this masterclass based in her house, Abigail shares her insider knowledge, decorating secrets and tips and tricks of the trade that will enable you to create seductively stylish places overflowing with personality. Take away oodles of inspiration, pick Abigail’s brains and discover all you need to know to create your dream home. I had the pleasure of attending this masterclass myself a few years ago and it was definitely a design highlight of the year for me. Just to visit and nose around her house was worth the money in my opinion but of course you also got a day packed with useful information, socialising with like minded people and a delicious lunch. Apart from sitting and taking notes in the classroom Abigail also took us on a tour around her house stopping in every room and explaining the principles of her design and how she customised this or another object, how she bought something at a thrift shop for next to nothing but combined with more expensive pieces it looked fabulous or how …

Stable House by Frama

The Stable House is one of a few preserved villas in Copenhagen. The building originally functioned as stables for the horses that carried water from the lakes, and the protected facade was created in 1878 by Georg Møller. Frama Studio has completed the residential project, where a series of stylish details included pivoting brass shutters, a terrazzo floor and a custom-made bed wrapped in solid Douglas fir. The result is a light, warm yet minimalistic feel where every detail of the custom-made furnishings and interior has been thought through.

Tour The Most Magical Girls’ Rooms You Will See

When I saw Giselle’s fairy tale kids rooms I fell in love with her whimsical magical style, so I couldn’t wait to share her story and images on my blog. Here is what Giselle is saying about her home: We have lived in this house for about two years. It’s just an ordinary two up two down house and it’s not very big! In fact it is a really small house! Downstairs we only painted the walls and that’s about it. That’s the reason why I don’t like posting any pictures of the living room or the kitchen. In the future I would like to renovate these rooms too. So for now I just decorate the kids’ rooms. It’s also the favourite place in the house where you can let fantasy loose and that’s what I really have done I think. The rooms are from my 2 girls: Cheyenne (9 years old) and Allison (1,5 years old). I have to say that I really like to change the rooms so they look very different every …

Tour This Contemporary Home Set In Idyllic Woodland Location Near Helsinki

This impressive contemporary new build in amazing woodland location 35 minutes from Helsinki is home to Tuuli and her family. A house in the middle of the forest with a vegetable garden next to it is a home of my childhood dreams, so when I saw this house I couldn’t resist to see and find out more. Could you tell me a few words about yourself? I am an art teacher by education, but also studied marketing at the university.  My occupation is related to marketing, but interior design has been one of my passions since the early age. I see myself as artistic and visual person. I really enjoy doing ceramics and visual arts during my spare time. Could you tell me a little bit about the house? How did you come up with its’ design?  Before this house, me and my husband had designed a few houses on paper and also had bought a plot near to our current house. We used to live in a traditional wooden house also located near to …

Preparation for Spring in Stephen and Karen’s London Apartment

As the days are getting longer and warmer (particularly this week that’s been the warmest few February days on record) I have noticed my neighbours spilling out into their gardens rushing to tidy up their outside space, opening the windows wide and welcoming the early change of season. A this time of year with new enthusiasm we are starting to think of seasonal changes to our homes. I have asked Stephen Thomas who works for a London branch of B&B Italia to share with me his thoughts on how he is planning to prepare his home for spring this year. Stephen shares a Victorian London apartment with his wife Karen Yuen who works for Clippings. “This time of year after a long dark and dismal winter, where the early afternoon around 4 O’clock begins with the flick of a light switch,  where the interior of the apartment has been filled with the scents of heavily braised, slow cooked meals eaten from bowls on the coffee table, and the living memory of box sets dramas, and …

House Tour: Hertfordshire Home of Interior Designer Alison Anderson

I am really excited to introduce to you a very talented interior designer Alison Anderson and to show you around her beautifully refurbished Grade II listed Arts & Crafts Hertfordshire home. Alison is a relative new comer to the interior design world, having set up her own practice in the summer of this year, however, she has been immersed in interiors and home products for the past 15 years while running her own interiors PR business.  She is a very creative person and a lot of the skills she has picked up over the years turned out to be completely transferable. She felt interior design was what she was most passionate about, so she decided to take a side step into it.  After finishing her house she was becoming increasingly frustrated that she had to suddenly switch off her design instinct. She has no intention of moving from this house to complete another renovation project, so a career change was the only option. Alison designed this house for the way that they live as a family and …
