A HOME WHERE THE BLUES MATTER


INTERIORS I HOME VISIT





This tuesday's home visit is to the English countryside. An old building needed a help according to the owner, to bring it into the modernity, this century. What I particularly like is the use of blue hues in the living area and also the simple and modern version of the panelling, both in the living room and also the bathroom.

HOME WITH A KITCHEN TO THINK OF

INTERIORS I HOMES




The home visit this tuesday is elected by me because of the kitchen plan and lay-out regarding it. In otherwise quite an open space, the kitchen is placed in the other end of the space but a steel framed glass wall kind of closes it so perfectly but yet keeps it part of the whole. Then I also think the simple kitchen fronts are looking great in grey and the look of the kitchen matches the interior style. CLICK HERE to see the home visit.

SEVEN CHAIR SEEN DIFFERENTLY

INTERIORS I DESIGN




Scandinavian design and mid century modern things are a classic even not to mention. But maybe we should mention it a bit and think outside the box we see these design pieces in? Lets take the Seven chair and the Ant chair for example, as they've been for so many years and decades, super popular for it's elegant lines. Most people buy these chairs to place around the dining table. The truth is, that these design pieces should also be thought of in different settings. The Danish brand Fritz Hansen, is one of these brands that do all the marketing and styling of their products superbly. Following their Instagram is inspirational everyday. They use their things to show their customers how amazing it would be, and can be, having these pieces in their homes. As a true believer in placing furniture in different way and thinking about them as multifunctional, I'm showing you in this post how your Seven or Ant chair can get a new life in different circumstances! If you have a few, there is no need in using them all together. Rather where they are at their best and in places you had never thought about putting them. The photos will inspire you to find your design chair a new place in your life. Read more.

CLASSIC YET MODERN HOME WITH RUSTICAL TWIST

INTERIORS I HOME VISIT




Modern building usually means modern interior. Somehow it seems to architects, designers and their clients that modern doesn't fit some mix up in interior style. I think it's not true, although the line is quite thin and maybe a tad difficult to know when enough is enough in other kind of style use. For excample a modern house isn't a match to a very chic and cheek romantic country style. But like the home I'm showing you, it's a great excample of mixing up different kind of styles. The house is an aristocrathic building, the fittings very modern and sleek and the interior decoration more of an rustic though classic simplicity. The photo above shows it clearly and how thoughtful design is a mix of a lot more interesting aspects than one style or style period. CLICK to see the home visit and all infos.

MONDAY'S MIX

INTERIORS I MOOD




Moody monday, today. So grey outside, windy and wet. No winter at all and clean, white snow would make a difference in making all our surroundings more beautiful. We haven't almost had none all this winter and it seems it's not going to happen. So, we shall find the eternal beauty somewhere else than looking out of the dreary window today. Find some charms in the living environment and things that speek of story. You become curious, wanting know more. But all we have is one photo. We have to use imagination for the rest. Read more.

DON'T FORGET THE LITTLE ONES

INTERIORS I CHILDREN




It's actually really important for children to have their bedroom quite well organised and planned. Not to mention a tad tidy. I've noticed that if not, children loose their interest of spending time in there, as they're not feeling well enough. For me here at home, it doesn't happen every day, not every other day either to tidy up. Our younger daughter loves to play and she creates a kind of islands or creative stations for her games all around and it can be like that for quite a while, as the game continues. That doesn't matter to me at all, but I find it important for our daughters, if they're supposed to tidy up, that it's easy and that they know where every thing is supposed to be. Also that it's not done for me and their father, but for themselves. 
Childrens bedrooms are also the room in the house people are having some problems with, and ask me a lot about it in my work. Usually the rooms are not big enough for all things supposed to be in there and people find it difficult to have a proper storage for the stuff. It's also how to plan the room and find solutions.
So to speak, Kaja asked me to do a post about childrens bedrooms, as she loves to search Pinterest and beautiful bedrooms for her age. We chose some together we find beautiful and also having a factor that really works. Read more for the photos, ideas and why it works.

WHY NOT?

INTERIORS I DESIGN




Why not...using  more pine wood in new fittings than otherwise more expensive hardwood? Using pine wood actually brings some opportunities in usage; use it plain, whitened, dark stained, painted, etc. In a new building where simplicity is the key, I feel it's super interesting and really cool like the photo shows, for doors and cabinet doors. So totally different from what usually seen in new homes.

INDUSTRIAL MILAN LOFT

INTERIORS I HOME VISIT




A great home of 2016. Of course there are many homes that could be in the catagory of great homes published last year, but this one is very special. I also thought that this home could restart the house tours I once did every thuesday a long while ago. I've noticed that seeing homes in complete, is something that make people curious, and being positively curious is a sign of being creative! Right? This is an industrial loft in Milan with strong bohemian wibe, first seen on Remodelista. What I particularly like and love in this home is the use of the long drapes to divide the space and create some more cozy areas in otherwise open space. It also has this charming x-factor that makes a home somehow more interesting. Click HERE to see the article on Remodelista.

GREAT BATHROOMS OF 2016

INTERIOR I BATHROOMS




We are on the final days of January and the last days on Home and Delicious where we are looking through the year of 2016. Now there are great bathrooms of last year. Bathroom because I noticed when searching my Pinterest, that the board of bathrooms have the most followers. People are obviously interested in bathrooms as the bathroom can be the dream room in the house. The room you should spend some quality time in to revive, cleanse and relax. But designing a great bathroom is something people are not sure of and more quite afraid of. And as everybody know, can be very expensive production. Oftentimes I feel people are thinking about the bathroom as more complicated than it really should be. The more simple and basic, the more style you can add to it regarding materials, texture, colours and fittings. The photos show it very clearly. Read more to see them all.
