Came across this Swedish apartment in the sold section over at Fantastic Frank. What drew me into this one was the constant touches of pink throughout the apartment. It is usually not my cup of tea, but it did make for a great place to rest the eyes. It probably drew a crowd to the viewings as well, continuity in presenting a home for sale is key…
Check out the rest of the images from the flat here.
Since it’s valentines tomorrow, and I am spending mine at work, here is a valentines post my way. By my way, I mean in the way of basing it all on color, interiors and other stuff that generally inspires me. So to set you in the mood for tomorrow, here is some red and pink inspiration to get you going.
I am back to dreaming of creating a home just the way I want it. And today I am roaming through kitchen inspiration. So this is some of my inspiration for my future kitchen in my future dream fixer-upper-home.
There is a lot I find inspiring by this space – mainly the floor and those amazing windows… Windows like that and a lovely patio space to enjoy my meals when weather allows me is one of my interior dreams. And that pop of bright red on the pipe – is another level of interior shamazing! via
One of my kitchen wishes is space! Space enough to keep my hobby of looking for great dinnerware and lovely vintage cups going strong and also space enough to share the kitchen with other people. As I get older I truly start believing that the kitchen is the heart of the home – and I want a kitchen spacious enough to cook with my friends, family and loved ones. And I wouldn’t mind a chalkboard wall in my kitchen, like the one in the background, for notes, art and recipes. via
This kitchen is to me absolute perfection. Obviously it is white and grey with lovely wood floors – but I have fallen in love with the combination of different tiles. I absolutely adore the fishbone tiles – I wouldn’t mind them in my future kitchen – but then again; who would? via
I adore the raw wood in this space – which fits so well with the colour of the tiles and the driftwood shelving. I must say I find this space quite charming, and it seems like it would fit a crowd!
And we’re back on the tiles! The polygon tiles. I am absolutely head over heels for these tiles, being the tile lover that I am this might not come as great shock. And that pendant light – anyone know where I can get one of those? via
The breakfast bench in this place is absolutely gorgeous. I love the worn down leather combined with the lovely pattern of the cushion. The wood is gorgeous as well. via
The glass divide in this home is lovely. I have always had an idea of recycling some lovely industrial windows in my dream space, and as a well in my kitchen wouldn’t be the worst idea. Combine it with a door and you can separate the kitchen from the rest of the home without losing the feeling of space. via
Another great use of glass in a kitchen, making a mini inside garden behind glass walls. I would love this in my own home – wouldn’t know where to start though… via
This kitchen is absolutely lovely, it just feels inviting and cozy. I love the greens, who doesn’t love a bit of fresh florals in a space? And that window right above the kitchen sink would definitely make doing the dishes more of a lovely experience. Looking out on the life outside – day dreaming. via
I am as usual falling for the exposed brick – but this kitchen also is swoonable because it gives a great feel of space. Perfect city kitchen! via
Yes – the concrete is something to fall in love with – I know I am falling for it. . . But my main thing in this image is the pig! How cute is that piece of piglet art? I would probably have issues cooking pork, still – amazing. via
The whimsical in me is swooning over this one. Pops of colour, pops of typography, pops of Eames – and on the top of it all – that table! That table is proof of how imperfection creates perfection. via
One of my great wishes for a great spacious kitchen is a perfectly tiny and perfectly cozy breakfast corner! This one right here seems pretty perfect. There is something romantic about having a tiny corner space for enjoying the start of the day… via
The combination of marble and colours in this space is brilliant. The cutlery in the glass vase is pretty perfect – would love have a vase of pretty cutlery in my own kitchen. via
I used to be opposed to wallpapers – but my opinion has changes – and I am time after time finding inspiration in homes filled with wallpaper. And now I am getting excited by wallpaper in any shape and any form – especially in the form as kitchen decor. I would love a great wallpaper wall in my future kitchen…
I know I often bring up industrial greatness on this blog. But common! This industrial open space kitchen is pure greatness… Look at that dining table – and I do adore that lovely tiny neon sign action going on in the background. via
I’ve always wanted loads of open shelves in my dream kitchen. And I have totally fallen for these great shelves from Ikea – so the price is nice as well… I have this image in my head that if I have open shelves in my kitchen not only can I display all my lovely finds, but at the same time it will make me more organized… via
Adore this mini wash it nook – but mostly – those tiles! via
Why not get inspired by a coffee shop? That pop of yellow isn’t wrong! via
Again – this is all about the great display storage… I think I might be a person who would start the planning of a kitchen from the storage… All the other stuff will come along in its own time. via
That’s it for today! There will be more kitchen at a later time – and I will probably be running through every room of my future dream fixer-upper-home.
Good morning! The rain is pouring down outside – so what is better than handing you a crazy pink sunday morning post? I know I need a pink injection, so here goes nothing!
Pink injection done – now I’m ready for some sunday work!
As I almost promised not long ago – while posting about dusky pink in fashion – here – I am now handing you one on a dusky pale pink wedding!
The Pale Pink Gown
Would you go there? To that place, you know the place, where you walk around like a grown-up version of the princess in the pale dress you imagined as a child? I probably wouldn’t but I take my felt hat off for anyone who does!
The Pale Pink Groom
A pale pink boutonniere, a pink bow tie or tie – or how about going all the way and putting the groom in a pale pink suit?
The Pale Pink Wedding Shoes
This must be one of my favorite aspects – who wouldn’t love a pair of lovely pale pink heels for the big day?
The Pale Pink Flowers
How about a pale pink bouquet or how about some pale pink flowers represented in your centerpieces?
The Pale Pink Bridesmaids
If you won’t go there (response to the comment on the pink gown) then maybe your bridal party would!
The Pale Pink Ceremony
How about drizzling some pale pink on your ceremony space? I am especially swooning over the ceremony backdrop in image 2 and the lovely pillows for ceremony seating in picture 1.
The Pale Pink Stationary
Put the pale pink on paper!
The Pale Pink Reception Space
I’m talking garlands, signs, pom poms, tablecloths, tableware – the whole shabang! But of course in the most modest of ways haha!
The Pale Pink Cake
Then finally – the CAKE! Could it work with some pink?
The Pale Pink Food & Drink
It is possible to incorporate the colour through what you and your guests are supposed to devour! Just look at these gorgeous nibbles and these refreshing beverages… I feel I’m on to a winner!
That’s it for today – so – would you incorporate pale pink into your wedding? I know I probably would in some way or form…
On of the great fashion colour trends for this season is a dusky pale pink – and everyone knows if I should choose a favorite pink it would be the dusky pale persuasion! As you know I will probably return with a dusky pink interior post and a dusky pink wedding post – just because I am a strong believer in grabbing your favorite trends from fashion/interior/wedding and bringing it into the others. But for now – let’s return to the lovely use of pale pink in fashion. I would love a lovely pale pink wool coat for winter – or a lovely pale pink dress for one of the seasons parties…
So are you going pale for winter?
Or should I call it – day before interview day pinterest rant? This is going to be one of my most important interviews in quite a vile… This is my first interview as a professional – or should I say my first interview after my finished studies. Well – let’s focus on the lovely inspiration instead of my pre-interview jitters!
Today I am going to take a step back from my usual monochromatic tendencies and focus on all the beautiful images out there that draws me in based on the amazing colours!
Love the pink bangs! Wish I had the guts to go pink – but I know deep inside that it would not suit my complexion at all!
That coat should be on my back!
Crazy colour – but I like it…
Gorgeous print – gorgeous colours.
Who needs diamonds when they’ve got a pineapple lying around!
Yes – I love the colour mint! (and I am not opposed to ice cream either)
Always been a bit sceptical to this combo – but I think this image has turned me around… Bring on the red with the pink!
I know this is not the most colorful of images – but it is beyond beautiful!
Blue on blue – heartache and heartache! Ps. if you don’t like this song – common – of course you like this song!
Gorgeous collection of rings – get them at BHLDN
I wouldn’t mind some or all of these lovelies!
