This is the Danish home of architect Kasper Ronn and his wife Julie. The house had been a large barn which they split in two so that Julie’s sister could live next door with her husband. Inside, Kasper and Julie have kept their interior free of clutter yet surprisingly cosy. The raw brick walls have been kept bare and this contrast beautifully with the chandelier in the hallway and the polished concrete floor. Upstairs the rooms are minimal and because of this, the pieces that Kasper and Julie have chosen stand out even more. I love the black pendant lights in the dining room (top image), they are the Topan VP6 from Verner Panton.

Today an old favorite! I blogged about this gorgeous home on Formentera two years ago and it has been a favorite of many readers. I just love the use of natural materials. Look at those large wooden doors! Also the wooden kitchen cabinets, the bathroom and the outdoor area are stunning.
Beautiful natural stone tile floors can be found through the entire home.
And of course the bathroom (images above and below) is stunning as well. I love the driftwood mirror, I have a similar one in my home.

This lovely home of stylist Anna Church is nestled in a beautiful cove on New Zealand’s Waiheke Island. The home is small so the owners had to be clever with space. The window seat (image below) for example is also a hidden storage space.

Villa Mandarina is a beautiful home set along the Costa del Sol, Spain. This house is a dream that come true to Ana T. Béjar. As a result of her work the house has turned into haven of light and peace. The crisp white interiors adds brightness to the space, while the outdoor patio offers stunning sea views.

This cosy home in London is decorated with vintage finds such as designer classic furniture pieces and accessories such as the Catherineholm enamelware in the kitchen. The living room (top image) is personalised with matelpiece treasures, including an original pewter pilgrim’s spoon. A wonderfully worn camp bench unearthed at an antique market is used as a coffee table.

This beach cottage near Paternoster on the West Coast of South Africa is built entirely of local stone. The charming house was designed to blend into the surrounding countryside. And the location can’t get any better! The cottage is located on a private nature reserve overlooking an undisturbed beach. A perfect spot for escaping busy city life!

The office from fashion label Free People in Philadelphia is just gorgeous! I remember seeing some photos of their offices a while ago and the first thing I noticed where the chairs upholstered with sari fabric. I could not get this idea out of my head and I was happy to see that Fab is offering butterfly chairs with vintage sari fabric for upholstery (see last image).
These chairs provide an unusual addition to your interior. The fabric features Kantha embroidery, a traditional technique popular in Bengal. Due to the handcrafted nature of the textile, each chair is entirely unique. I want to purchase one of these chairs but I have a hard time choosing which one as they are all so beautiful…

White, rattan, wood, combined with neutral tones and perhaps a little bit of grey. To me this combination never gets boring. This natural style is especially perfect in summer time!

I’m loving these stylish leather envelope i-pad sleeves! Hand made by ANVE, a small label whose aim is to make objects that stay with their owners and become more beautiful with life. ANVE: “We draw our inspiration from discovery tours through Lisbon, a beautiful old city full of hidden workshops and warehouses. Our past lives in places like Basel and Vienna have certainly influenced our way to look at things.”
Everything in their shop is handmade with love — either crafted with the help of small local manufacturers or created in their own studio.
This lovely apartment looks spacious but this two room home in Gothenburg, Sweden, measures only 50m2. I love how limited space is used and the decoration is just beautiful. Is this your dream home? Lucky you: it is for sale!
