A NATURAL LOOK FOR NURSERIES & KIDS ROOMS

naturalkidsroom9

I love nurseries and children’s room decorated with natural materials. Wood and rattan combined with neutral colors such as (off) white, brown and grey create a warm and serene atmosphere. Lighter colors give an airy feel and make a (small) space look bigger. You can add some pop of colors (yellow, blue or dusty pink for example) or use felt animal heads to add a fun element. Here are some lovely room with a natural look to inspire you. And if you would like to create a similar look you can find suggestions for furniture and accessories in this post as well.

A BEAUTIFUL SCANDINAVIAN FAMILY HOME BY THE SEA

Swedish couple Åsa and Peter had been eying on this home, which was only 300 meters away from their old house, for a while. And when their dream house became for sale, they jumped at the chance and bought it. The home overlooking the sea dates from 1852 and needed a lot of work. But this did not scare the couple and they turned it into a beautiful family home. The decor is a lovely mix of old and new. I like that the interior feels modern yet cozy. Very Scandinavian! You can find some suggestions for how to create a similar look & feel below.

A STUNNING LOFT IN LONDON SET IN AN ART DECO BUILDING

This beautiful loft in London is set in an old art deco building which has been renovated. The apartment has a modern look but also has features that are characteristic of the art deco era. Striking are the large windows, making this open planned apartment flood with light. The decor is a mix of art deco antiques, vintage finds and some industrial elements. The result is an unique and eclectic home, which by the way can be rented as a photo shoot location (through the location scout site Airspace Locations).
