Down here in the Southern Hemisphere we’ve only just said goodbye to winter. Even though I love summer I have to admit that I may be having some trouble letting go of the fuzzy textures and soft blankets that where so high on the radar during the chilly months.
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of oversized Icelandic sheepskins, flokati rugs and neutral interior textured palate’s. It may seem the right time to pack up those heavier winter layers, but I’m definitely in no hurry, I’m sure that summer won’t mind waiting since winter felt so good..
Crisp natural light, industrial style fittings and soft leather armchairs just the perfect balance of old verse new. A dreamlike Swedish apartment, enviable to any pinterest mood board fanatic or home renovator looking for inspiration. Sometimes the Swede’s really do know best ..
Not that long ago I visited some friends in Sweden who had a summer house perched high on the cliffs of a beautiful seaside fjord. That little Scandinavian glass house sat amongst 8 story pine trees and looked down to the waterway below, but one thing that stole my heart apart from the view was those incredible rustic white floor boards that the Scandinavian’s do so well.. an ode to Fia and Gustav .. xx
Mmm bed, the one place in the world where you truly can dream your own reality. I don’t know about you but I’ve had a rather large weekend and I couldn’t think of anything better right now than crawling into one of these beautiful white pillowy sanctuaries. Happy weekend and I hope this piece has you inspired for the week ahead.. sweet dreams and dream big baby .. xx
Welcome to Sunday Sanctuary! A new type of article that I hope to be posting each Sunday night, the perfect excuse to curl up on the couch with your laptop after a big weekend, oh and if you are anything like me a block of peppermint Lindt dark chocolate. Hopefully you find some pinterest worthy inspiration but if not who cares, it might be a little more fun than the Sunday night movie .. so here goes, I hope that you enjoy.
First up is this beautiful Scandinavian apartment and yes, you’ll notice that it’s primarily white my go-to home inspo colour of choice. Emma Hos is the stylist behind this minimalist pad, the perfect combination of natural fibres and clean white light.. awesomeness that we would like to teleport to Queensland, actually Emma you’re invited too maybe you’d have some advice for my office…if only we could find my desk under all this rubble.. xx
Copenhagen may be the breeding ground for some of fashion’s most stylish people but also some of the most beautiful interiors on the planet. If you’re a fan of white interiors with lot’s of natural light then you’ll have a soft spot for the apartment just like I do. We love some mid week home inspo.. thanks to pinterest for enlightening us on this one..
You may recognise some of these images from Tumblr or other inspirations but I’m so excited to finally share a collection of beautiful spaces by Interior Designer Marie Olsson Nylander. I also shared an article some time ago that featured pics of Marie’s beautiful home in Sweden .. such a talent, looks as though it might be time to rearrange the furniture .. x
