Simple, elegant and modern apartment

While I still spend most of my blogging time designing the new site (and due to that post less frequently than I would like to) I thought I’d pop by and share with you one simple and elegant apartment I came across online. This modern apartment has many design classics that I like: Alvar Aalto “Bench 153B” as a bedside table, Eames “DSW” dining chairs and Mark Tuckey “Tripod” table with Gervasoni “Bell 95″ pendant light hanging over it!

What do you think about this apartment? Do you like it or is it a bit too modern for you?

Five Favorites For Friday

Can’t believe it’s already Friday! This week has gone by in a blink of an eye and my little poor blog hasn’t received much attention this week due to really busy time in my day job. Also, setting up a new site has taken much more time than I expected … :) I hope to finish it in the weekend!

Here are some random favorites I have came across recently:

I hope you all will have a really great weekend!

White and black apartment

Well, I guess the title said it all – today I’m sharing a home designed in black and white color scheme. The big and old wooden cupboard adds some warmth to the interior and makes it feel more home…

And of course – happy July!

Five Favorites For Friday

, , , , , , ,

It’s Friday again and as you know I started a column last Friday, so today is Five Favorites For Friday time today!

During the next week there will be a big change here in my little blog. Namely I’m starting a self-hosted life and that means my blog will move! Also, I’ll change the name of my blog :) I’m very excited about that and can’t wait to launch the new site. But before I can do that I have to spend some hours (maybe even days?!) with my computer … :) I hope I can show you my new place already in the next week, so stop by to see my new site!

 

Have a relaxing and sunny weekend and see you on Monday!

White and colorful and Scandinavian

Today I’d like to share with you a beautiful summerhouse I came across when looking Skonahem. This home has many things I like: white walls, whitewashed solid wood floors, vintage finds and happy pops of color brought in by different accessories.

I just read from the newspaper that the long-term forecast about July here in Estonia is not very promising … Fortunately long-term forecasts tend to be wrong and I’m sure this one is also wrong! It must be wrong! :)

Design Seeds – a great source for color inspiration

Tags

, , , , ,

In my early days in Pinterest I constantly came across stunning color palette images. As I liked them so much I wanted to know where do they come from and this was how I discovered Design Seeds. Ever since Design Seeds has been one of my favorite spots for color inspiration. Jessica, the lovely lady behind Deign Seeds, posts several new color palettes every day. On that site you can find color palettes searching by different themes or by specific color, which can be chosen from a color palette you like, or by using RGB sliders. I think that many of you have already found Design Seeds, but for those who haven’t I definitely recommend visiting this very inspiring site by clicking here!

Wish you all a colorful new week!

A new column: Five Favorites For Friday

Today is an important day because today is the day I start a regular column here in my blog!:) I named it Five Favorites For Friday and this will be a set of images I have found inspiring during the week, just a random selection. Why five? Because five is great number, five starts with “F” like Friday and Friday is the fifth day of the week …

I hope you’ll find some inspiration!

Have a happy happy weekend!!

Five ideas for decorating with ladders

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

I think we all have seen homes where ladders are used as design elements. Mostly I have seen them in bathrooms, where they are used for hanging towels. Actually there are many other ways how ladders could be used in home décor. I put together a list of 5 wonderful ideas for decorating with ladders. So here we go:

1. In bathroom for hanging towels. It seems to me that this is the most popular way to use ladders in interiors.

2. In living room or in home office to store throws or blankets. Some throws are just so pretty that you may not want to storage them hidden behind the closet doors.

3. In kitchen to hang towels or some textiles used for decorating dining table. Again, if you have some nice kitchen textiles you may want to use them as accent pieces in your kitchen and a ladder is one option for storing them.

4. In bedroom or in entry for exposing beautiful accessories like your favorite shoes, scarfs, bags … whatever you like!

5. In bedroom as a bedside table. Rungs can be used for clip lights, magazines and even for glasses!

What other ideas for using ladders in home decorating you have come across? It would be very interesting to hear!

Industrial and raw with lots of repurposed things

Tags

The new week will start with a raw and industrial interior I came across this weekend (… so no blue colors this time!). This renovated 132 square meters brick house from Copenhagen was built in 1922. Family who lives there likes to give old and little bit rusty things a second chance, for example the glass wall dividing the living room is actually  a large window section from an old greenhouse, curtains are made from an old tablecloth, tiles in the kitchen came from a hotel kitchen and a big cabinet in the living room is from a hospital. Very clever repurposing, especially the greenhouse window, isn’t it? :)

I like these white washed floors in the living room and the contrast of an old table painted light turquoise and old metal Tolix chairs. Also I like the real stump placed in front of the fireplace and the candle holders that look like stumps (is “stump” correct word to describe these wooden things I described?!).

Have a nice new week!
