THE BLACK AND WHITE BABY SPACE

The Bean is in need of his own space now, so we have decided to create a room for him asap! Our living/dining space used to contain a bedroom, this is before we bought the place, and now we want to reverse the old owners vision back to the original form. This will leave the Bean with a bedroom big enough for him and all his possessions. He will end up with quite a spacious room, and I have started working on the details (we´re talking colors, wallpaper, decor), whilst the H is working on the structural bit of it.

I want the room to have a black and white backdrop, with pops of color and maybe a great wallpaper to break it up, so of course I have been spending some time inspiration hunting. Here are some favorites I´ve gathered, enjoy!

All I have to do right now is waiting for a wall to arrive… I´ll share some images as soon as we start working on his little dome of greatness.

MONOCHROMATIC SWEDISH HOME

There isn’t a lot I don’t like about this space, besides my own preference for something a little bit bigger… Put the size aside and you have this amazing monochromatic home, filled with lovely fresh greens and quirky details, like the chair on the wall working as a shelf. To be honest, this space just proves you can’t go wrong with black and white, and the shades in-between…

HOME ENVY – SWEDISH MODERN

Came across this amazing apartment for sale on Stadshem and it made my home envy bone rattle. There is simply something about the simplicity of this place, keeping as much space as possible free of clutter, yet keeping enough of details around to make it homey and cozy. Grey wooden floors, accompanied by black, white and lovely metallic… This is basically one of my greatest home envy this far – perfectly modern and Scandinavian + a tad of industrial feel – SOLD! Oh and just wait for the most awesome kitchen you’ve seen for ages! This is absolutely going to be a great source of inspiration for our new home – I’m going to hang these images all over the house to get the H inspired as well…

Let’s start with the bedroom. First of all I love the display of greatness above the bed, the choice of mixing black, white and metallic. I am also a big fan of the built-in storage, seems like a great idea for a bedroom – keeping as much as possible of the natural space. The art as well – it’s right up my alley this one!

The livingroom sticks true to the whole feel of the home – bring on the monochromatic life! My favorites here must be the amazing collection of vintage birds on the wall – what a wonderful idea! And of course the String shelve is as gorgeous as always – so getting one for our new home.

This is my favorite spot in this awesome home – the most amazing black kitchen ever! I guess the perfection is brought to its full with those leather handles. I have that high on my to do list when we buy our new home – kitchen re-paint (maybe not in black) and bring on the leather handles!

I love the mixing of tiles in the bathroom – especially craving those black hexagon tiles I spot on the floor. Also the built-in storage is perfect for small spaces – no need to cramp up a place – keep it simple.

Add some raw wood to the mix… Like any good home cocktail!

Do I spot amazing tiles in the hallway – yes I do!

One, two, three – in the inspiration bank it goes!

BACK TO BLACK

Hello there! It has been a couple of days since my last post – not my plan to be honest – but my laptop decided to show its bad side and be  a right twat. It just gave up on life – and it showed that the laptop I got four years ago had a “born-with-it-default” that decided to make its grand entrance after the warranty ran out… So today I had to get on my knees and crawl to the closest electronics shop and purchase a brand new baby – lucky for me I ended up with a kick ass laptop for 200 quid less than it should cost – because one of the people working there took it out of the box without knowing they had already put another one out for display… So the good thing is I now have a laptop that will keep me happy for a pretty long time – so I am back to posting!

So in honour of my new baby – I have decided to do a “back to black” post – which is kinda back to my roots (the roots of my love for the monochromatic – the black and white – the simple things). Enjoy!

HOME ENVY

Today I feel like sharing one of my home envy posts with you guys… And today I will share the lovely home of the talented stylist Susanna Vento. I came across this home ages ago – in a copy of Elle Decoration – don’t remember if it was the Norwegian, Swedish or British edition though – kinda make my way through them all every month. The point is – this lovely black and white heaven of a home has stuck on my mind since. If it is the Scandinavian simplicity or my sheer love for black and white that is the reason for this sticking for so many months I do not know – and I do not care – all I know is that I adore this abode.

There is something about the combination of a simplistic black and white backdrop combined with colorful focal points – like artwork, lamp cords etc. Hope you enjoy this space as much as I have!

Pink with black and white – again my avoidance of pink is not working.

Black and white combined with wood and kitchen is never wrong!

Someone sprayed their flowers black – and now I want to do the same thing…

Another place where pink fits – combined with a lot of black and a lot of white… I think I have to bring some pink home with me.

I am completely in love with the work lamp – wish it I would find it outside my door when I head to the shops in a couple of minutes!

MAN UP

Man up… it is time to get inspired by menswear. I do love myself some androgyny – and I do love suited up women – so this is def. a trend to my taste. Bring on the crisp shirts, the cardigans, the tweed and the wool – I am ready for it all… Who doesn’t love some fall fashion? Here is a tiny of “man it up” inspiration:
