I recently visited a few show homes here with a friend. The show homes we saw were styled and quite nice, but they don’t come in the same category as this Swedish show home. If I visited this home I would want it. It’s so trendy. This is show home perfection! Well done, Blooc. The soft tones in this home go so well with green plants and black.
A while ago I rented a studio with Deborah from Ollie and Seb’s haus. The studio was a bit of a lemon, so it took a while to renovate it before we moved in. The building is really old and used to be an old factory, so the room has got a bit of an industrial feel to it. Nothing is perfect, but we both like the raw industrial look. It’s hard to imagine the studio with it’s magnolia coloured walls and bright blue carpet. It’s had a bit of a makeover you can see it here.
The reason why we chose this studio was mostly because of the light. We are lucky to have two large windows and were also able to paint the wooden floor and the walls. We’ve chosen to keep the studio mostly white, but we love adding black details like the Muuto Visu chair, wood, gold accents and green plants. We even have music at the studio from our wireless Native Union speaker.
Deborah is just the best at styling and I love seeing her in action. It all looks so natural and effortless.
To new adventures! We’re working on some really exciting projects…
These photos are from the weekend when we had friends over for cake and coffee. I love the colour combination. I bought the vase at a bric-à-brac in France years ago and it never seems to date. If you like ceramics there are so many nice things for sale at markets and in charity shops.
The blue trend hasn’t taken over here. I’ve simply bought a couple of blue linen napkins to go with my more or less monochrome decor. For me a dash of blue is enough.
Blue linen napkins and white linen table cloth from H&M Home, black cutlery from Amara, white ceramics from VIPP and coffe coffee cups and saucers from Alinea. The black chair from Muuto.
You’ve got to love eucalyptus stems. I bought the stems 3 weeks ago and they still look fresh.
I came across these images last night and love the fact the photos say Easter, but it has been done in a very subtle way. These minimal Easter decorations speak volumes. Less is more. There’s no need to overdecorate. A few decorations on a couple of branches is all you need.
I love the concrete wall, the wall hanging and the gold pendant lamp. I’ve been looking for a gold lamp for a while and still haven’t found the one I’m after. Well, actually I have, but it cost almost £500… so I guess I won’t be buying it.
Yesterday I really had that spring feeling. The sky looked like this, which is pretty amazing for Glasgow. Today it’s colder and less spring like, so I’ve taken to the internet for some spring inspiration. All of these photos give me that spring feeling I’m so looking forward to. It’s a combination of light and emptiness I think. Not emptiness as such, but just simple decor and less clutter. I got a real spring cleaning kick yesterday. You know when you can put away all the winter coats and nice shadows appear on your walls. That kind of feeling. I think it’s simply called more light. That and the fact that everything is starting to come out. I loved the drive into Glasgow yesterday. I noticed lots of white blossoms along the way. Spring is definitely here!
A sneak peek from the studio (I’ll show you more very soon)
Ceramics are being given a lot of attention just now. I like the collection from French Connection, not to mention the styling. All the focus is given to the different pieces. Nice grey shades in the 2nd photo.
