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
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, Sweden) is 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
All I'm seeing at the moment is chevron! Don't be afraid to mix up your colours when you're going to be displaying all of the one print like this. If you're not quite sure which print or pattern will work in your home, this is such a great idea to create depth and fun within your space. My chevron cushions are from Cush and Co
I've been crushing for a while now on everything from I love linen. Lauren's Range is modern, fun and made from beautiful quality fabrics that you just want in every room of you our home. My favourites are split between the pure linen quilt covers and the Turkish cotton blankets (Seriously, I can't decide which I want more!!)
To help with my indecision I have asked Lauren to not only share some of her favourites with you, but to also share what makes them so special. Her passion for her products really shines through, enjoy. HERx
I am literally in love with this French flax linen, if that's even possible! When I see it, I take a short breath as it makes me so happy imagining myself just completely switching off and enjoying the textural elegance that linen offers. My new collection comes in five very classic and understated colours, and are all beautiful in their own way. While linen is more of an investment compared to cotton sheets, once you switch to linen it's basically impossible to go back again. It's just a classy beautiful fabric and it really makes your whole bedroom feel a bit more luxurious. Linen evokes such a great feeling of relaxed classic style, and the way it drapes over your bed is just beautiful.
I work with a group of artisan Turkish weavers who make the most beautiful textiles. When my blankets arrived I was so excited, and these have been so popular. They're so soft and supple and I love the patterns and simple colour ways. They look absolutely incredible on a bed and I have nabbed a black one for myself!
I have a bit of a cushion fetish, I am always changing the cushions on my couch and bed every few weeks. I love my new range, they all mix and match together brilliantly. These prints are some of my personal favourites.
Wawi Navarroza is a photographer and a multi-disciplinary artist. This series named Dominion is peaceful and intriguing. I love the strength of the contrasting colour pallets. I feel like each image captures a heald breath, a frozen moment amidst a flurry of fluent airy movement. HERx
This white and bright warehouse home was styled by renowned Italian designer Paola Navone. Beautifully minimalistic she has let the space speak for itself by washing the walls and ceilings white, while leaving enough detail to see and feel all of the gaps, crevices and imperfections. I love these details, to me it allows the texture and the materials to speak, I always want to run my hand over these surfaces and feel their story for myself.
The choice of colour that remains natural grounds the space, with the exception of the hanging bell fireplace all colour choices are connected to or are the floor grounding the space and separating the two levels. By leaving the height white it allows for the rooms to feel light and airy and although it actually created the illusion of more space in an already large space it seems to also create an intimacy where all spaces are blended into one so while you're in the space you cannot clearly differentiate where each room starts and ends. The glow off of the walls and ceiling essentially confuses the senses so that it isn't clear how close the ceiling actually is. It is a very clever use of the space, beware though not all spaces can create this illusion in quite this way, the amount of natural light combined with the space itself here is the key. HERx
Joseph Dirands work is subtly beautiful. What could feel quite masculine and strong instead has been softened by combining neutral colours, soft fabrics and natural materials within these sharp angular lines. I really enjoy the detail of the natural materials, the parquetry, marble and the way he harnesses the natural light, it compliments the strong lines beautifully and is simply stunning. Some of the furniture however is not to my taste, a bit too sharp and angular, but it does compliment the spaces and his style well. I would love to live in these spaces, albeit with a few of my own personal touches. HERx
I have recently discovered the styling of Sofia from Strawberry Dreams. Her monochromatic home has such lovely little unique gems found in each corner of each room. Her selections are beautiful made up of a perfect composition of clean strong design pieces, and of rustic and creative pieces, giving each room strong personality without being overpowering and cliche. HERx
I've been a fan, and to be honest, a bit of a Instagram stalker and cereal Pinterest sharer of stylist Pella Hedeby for a while now.
She has such a beautiful and simple style, she always adds so much personality into each space. The selection of furnishings are always detailed and luxurious, I want every peice in my own home. HERx
I adore the strength and subtle beauty in this space designed by the Carr Design Studio. The use and the method that they have used to delicately scatter the stark colour contrasts around this space add a simplicity that in itself speaks volumes; beauty, softness, vulnerability albeit hidden amongst bold lines.
The clean design is what enhances this interior allowing the styling selections to create interest and intrigue. HERx
