Luise is an interior stylist and owner of online store Vidalaluu. Together with Rasmus, who is an architect, she lives in this beautiful home in Aarhus, Denmark. Soft materials and pink accessories give a feminine touch while black furniture pieces and materials such as raw wood give a more masculine vibe. A beautiful balance!

A BEAUTIFUL FARMHOUSE IN VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

tamsint1

This is the stunning farmhouse belonging to Tamsin Caravan, her husband Allan Walker and their daughter Martha. From this working farm in the hills of Gippsland, Tamsin hosts beautiful lunches and workshops using meat and produce grown and gathered on the farm and in the rambling kitchen garden. Lunches and classes are held in the hilltop farmhouse with views down the valley out every window. Tamsin: “The joys of a shared table, conversation, home grown food; this is the good stuff of life.” I love the interior of the house which has a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. Many of the furniture pieces are hand made by Tamsin’s husband Al. Throughout the house vintage kilim rugs give warmth and character you can find similar rugs at Le Souk)

In today’s tour around my home I’m showing you our kitchen. We have an open plan kitchen, dining area and living room which works out great for us. The kitchen cabinets are basic white with a grey stone counter top. I have added wooden accessories such as the mortars and bread boards to add warmth. You can see more of our home in these posts: the bathroom, the garden and the living room. Next week I will be showing you the master bedroom.

I am currently in the process of redecorating my home office. I have designed a large floor-to-ceiling book case which will be custom build and I also found the desk that I wanted (the Balls table in white by BertJan Pot). Now I have to get some beautiful prints to dress up the walls. These beautiful leaf prints from Danish designer Pernille Folcarelli are high on my list. Would’t it be great to combine different prints, colors and sizes?!

MY LOVE FOR VINTAGE KILIM RUGS

kilim-rug-13

With a beautiful rug you can easily change the look and feel of your home. I especially love vintage kilim rugs as they give instant warmth and character to a room. These flat weave rugs have been produced by nomads and villagers throughout the Middle East and Central Asia for centuries. Traditional tribal designs were passed from one generation to the next, with each weaver creating subtle variations that reflected her own artistic personality. Every rug is therefor unique. The beautiful colors are created by using natural dyes. Today’s post give you some examples how a vintage kilim rug can be used. If you are looking for a similar rug, Le Souk has a large collection of rugs which are all in clean and great condition.
