A SCANDINAVIAN APARTMENT WITH A VINTAGE TOUCH

In this apartment contemporary elements are combined with classic features such as the ceiling mouldings and the old parquet floor. This, together with the custom built wooden elements and vintage furniture pieces, give character to the home.

A STYLISH VACATION RENTAL IN MONTAUK, USA

This beautiful vacation rental in Montauk is owned and designed by Studio Robert McKinley (who also designed The Surf Lodge in Montauk). Together with his wife Kate Nauta, Robert McKinley designed the idyllic beach home. The 1900-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home can accommodate six people and has an additional 1-bedroom apartment attached that can accommodate three additional people, which can be rented separately or together.

TINY PAPER HOUSES BY JURIANNE MATTER

How cute are these tiny houses by Dutch designer Jurianne Matter?! HEIM is a village of 12 highly diverse houses: traditional, urban, rural, cosy and old but also contemporary and modern. They are genuinely prefab: pre-punched, pre-creased and with windows that have already been broken out. Even the interior walls have been provided with wallpaper in a trendy black & white print. The only thing that you, as a contractor, need to do is to glue the walls and roofs together where indicated. Finishing the houses is great fun, and once they are completed you can start shifting them around. Will your houses form a convivial village square on your table, or a ramrod-straight street on your window sill or against your wall? Will you string them into a festive garland, or give one away as a house-warming gift? With two of these sets (24 houses in total) you can also create the most amazing Advent calendar ever! Number them with the house numbers provided and put a small gift or message in each house, to be opened on each day of Advent.

PRETTY IN WARM & COMFORTABLE CASHMERE

Cashmere is the perfect material to wear during the colder winter months. It is warm but doesn’t make you look bulky. And I love how comfortable it feels on my skin. Some more advantages of cashmere: it is a natural fabric, it makes you feel warm without sweating (cashmere wool comes with air pockets that are able to provide outstanding insulation) and cashmere doesn’t shrink and wrinkle. The pieces featured here are all made of cashmere and available from Everlane. That means that they are affordable! And good to know: Everlane only works with ethical factories and they offer transparent prices.
