Scandinavian by Krasikov

Denis Krasikov has created a strong sense of Scandinavian design in Murmansk, Russia. I simply adore the details in this home. Firstly the details within the building itself, the worn down timber floors, the moulding on the walls and ceiling, each has been featured and complimented perfectly within the space. The colour palette is one of my favourites, a lovely monochrome base with grounding tones of warm timber and splashes of continuous muted colours throughout each room, giving the apartment personality and calm. 

The lighting within the apartment is a particular highlight. Krasikov has scattered the pendants throughout each room creating clear living zones as well as creating a more intimate living environment by alluding to lowering the ceiling height, without loosing the open and airy feeling of such amazing high ceilings. The selection of lamp designs also add to the fun and modern feeling of the home. HER

The Design Chaser

One of my favourite bloggers and stylists is Michelle Halford from The Design Chaser.  Her  style and personality is always present within her work and when it comes to her home I have serious envy, the space she has created and the use of light is stunning. The colour palette is also one of my favourites for a family home, its soft, calming and playful with great grounding black accents. Her decorative choices are sweet and unique, I love the way that she has grouped these pieces together creating their own sweet stories within each room.  HERx

Lotta Agaton - For Sale

For quite some time I have absolutely admired and loved the work of stylist Lotta Agaton. Her work has personality, simplicity and creates an intimate and lived in feeling without loosing any design aesthetic. Her apartment is currently for sale in Stockholm, not only an interesting way to see how she styles her own home but it is great inspiration for so many of us trying to style our own homes realistically and with our own personality.  Just looking at these images it feels like she has created such a homely environment, to live everyday with your family here or to curl up with a book and watch the snow fall would be simply wonderful. HERx

Palm Trees + Coconuts + Hot Nights

Hello Lovelies,

I'll be taking a much needed break over the next few weeks. I will continue to post some inspirational snippets on Instagram during this time to keep your (and my) imagination flowing. I look forward to seeing you all in the new year. ☀️HERx

Tina Hellberg

A perfect neutral pallette with pops of colour that graduate through each room. My personal favourite is the natural pallette of the living and study spaces, the combination of "browns" adds warmth. The depth of the black feature wall in the living room grounds the apartment and ties together all of the black details. This can also create the illusion that the black is the common thread or base colour with the whites and colours as the features, it's a great way of making the light the feature in a smaller space like an apartment. 

This apartment was styled by Tina Hellberg for a Swedish real estate agency Fastighetsbyran, showing the varied possibilities of what single apartment can look like once it had been styled by 3 different stylists. (Follow this link to see the other concepts) This is such a great idea and a remarkable way to promote an apartment. HER

House of Suki

There is noting better than the knowledge that you have an incredibly special piece within your home, unique just to you. Add to that the feeling of history, drama and endless origin possibilities and you have House of Suki. Created and designed by the lovely Polly Cadden, each piece is hand made and created from vintage Japanese kimonos. The quality, texture and richness of the fabrics are simply stunning (photos will not do them justice). The combinations of fabrics on each piece is perfect, there is not one piece I've seen which doesn't fit together as though they were always intended for the other. With bedheads, throws through to cushions available the combinations are also endless. What makes them particularly magical to me is their possible origins, where were these fabrics worn? What event or location? Who wore them? Something as grand as a large ball or as simple as a magical evening where two people met for the first time, can keep the magic of these pieces alive forever. 

 

Below are a few of my particular favourites currently on display in a pop-up on Glenferrie Road in Malvern. The colour palettes and prints are endless, make sure you view their site to see the full depth of the range. HERx

Support Local

One of my favourite things is discovering local businesses and their gorgeous products. The quality and creativity are always high and to a detail you just don't see from chain and bulk distributors. Although an old story, I've noticed that so many of the larger retailers are noticeably copying even more from the smaller retailers now that so many of us are supporting these independents. Please don't fall into this trap, support your locals and independent producers and put your money into better designs and higher quality merchandise from truly talented people. HER x

Adoring colour

I love the colour pops within this apartment! For those who have been following me (especially my Instagram) you'll know that I love neutrals, pastels and any monochromatic palette but there is something about the colours and pieces in this apartment which I adore. There is a great sense of joy, playfulness and life here, I love it. HER xx

Blank Canvas

The quality of homes and the styling that is out there are often amazing to me. I have recently started looking at properties for sale around the world and the simplistic styling that I'm finding is so refreshing. Not only is this such a great way to show a home; leaving it open to interpretation, a blank canvas and an easy way for the buyers to envisage their own personality into the space, its also a lovely example of clean, creative and modern styling.

This home (which is currently for sale in Kungsladugårdsgatan, Swedenis so beautifully styled. The white walls and floors bounce and multiply the light perfectly, the simple yet selectively chosen pieces fill the room by making it homely and well designed. HER
