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!

MIXED TILES

It is not a great secret that I love tiles, but today it is all about the mixing of tiles. I guess I fell in love with the idea of mixing tiles when I spent a couple of weeks wandering through different cities in Portugal – the tile madness is brilliant there! If I could have my way I would have a hallway with a perfectly imperfect mixed tile floor – we’ll see – maybe I’ll get my will some day…

Here is some different ways to mix up tiles – for the ones out there looking for some tile-tastic ways to brighten up their home.

Mixing tiles with the same color scheme, but with different patterns makes for a beautiful backdrop in a kitchen or a bathroom, via

How about mixing up some tiles as a little piece of art for your home? via

Mixing different tiles in the same color tones is one of my favorites, go grey, via

Head off and mix those tiles!

KITCHEN LOVE

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! 

via

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… 

via

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.

VILLEROY & BOCH TILES

As some of you may have noticed I have a thing for great bathrooms – and especially great bathroom tiles.

I have decided to show you one of my great tile favorites these days – from Villeroy & Boch – available here – for those of you living in the UK.

It is the  V & B Bianco Nero Decor Tile. Which gives the most amazing three-dimensional feel – just give it a look!

What I absolutely adore about these tiles is the subtle geometry – which in my eyes is absolute perfection. I do fall for the subtle and the geek in me frolics at the idea of covering my bathroom walls with these tiles. I see these tiles working with both modern and more eclectic elements – you could go absolute minimalism and combine it with black and white details and bring in elements of metal – as in the photo above – or you could bring in some more natural elements like wood, army green and some lovely copper tones.

The black version of the tiles is also pretty shamazing – but I must admit I lean towards the white. Since I am a pale kind of girl!

If I should complete a bathroom with the white tiles I would probably go for some details like these:

And at the end of it I would throw in a lovely traditional freestanding tub – like this one via

THE SUBWAY TILES

I do love a good tile – no doubt about it. . . And there is one type of tile I’ve got my eyes on for quite a vile now – the subway tile. And for some reason I just can’t seem to get enough of them!

I love the simplicity it brings with it – and I would put them in my kitchen and my bathroom… First of all I would go for the kitchen I think – but who wouldn’t mind these lovely tiles all over the place? I am considering flying over to England to pick up some of these tiles after coming across this site! Have a look at the price – incredible…

First the original inspiration – the New York subway and the London underground:

INSPIRED BY MOROCCO

Today I am inspired by Morocco… When I think about Moroccan interior style I think of something warm and welcoming with a relaxed feel to it, great use of color, tiles and colours… I wish I could bring a bit of Morocco into my own home – I have a few Moroccan interior crushes – like a lovely handira for my bedroom or a gorgeous modern version of a traditional Moroccan tray table for my livingroom! Here is a bit of inspiration for you:

I am in love with the Moroccan tray tables… Came across some modernized versions of these not long ago – and I haven’t been able to get them out of my head since… Need to hunt them down!
