IKEA HOUSEBOAT IN COPENHAGEN, DENMARK

To showcase their latest collection IKEA came up with a cool concept by creating a pop-up showroom on a houseboat docked in the Copenhagen harbor. And although the entire boat is decorated with IKEA furniture and accessories it doesn’t look too ‘IKEA-ish’ at all!

THE FRENCH QUARTER TILE COLLECTION

I came across this image (above) and I had to find out more about those beautiful tiles. They are made by Canadian company Mosaiquesurface which recently launched their new French Quarter Collection which includes 30 different mosaic patterns available in nearly 100 types of natural stone. In addition to the variety of stone types, 16 colors of Venetian glass and metal inlays are available. The Montreal based manufacturer introduced its newest collection in four “stories,” or sections. Each is inspired by the luxe interiors of old homes in the American South.

PINK BATHROOM TILES: HOT OR NOT?

I have a soft spot for (powder) pink but I don’t have anything pink in my home. On Pinterest I have been seeing lots of pink tiled bathrooms lately and it makes me wonder about adding more pink to the house. I will not be redesigning our bathroom but perhaps start with a powder pink pompom blanket on our bed. What do you think of pink bathroom tiles: hot or not?

I am curious to hear what your opinion on pink tiles is!

A BOHO CHIC CONTEMPORARY BEACH HOUSE IN SYDNEY

This contemporary four bedroom beach house belongs to jewelry designer Kylie Hinds (creator of Not Heidi), her husband Paul and their three kids. When they found this home on the perfect location overlooking the ocean in Sydney’s Coogee 13 years ago it was in bad shape and needed lots of work. After living there for eight years, the couple went for a complete knock-down rebuild, tearing down the old cottage so they could create their dream beach home. They made use of the location’s best attributes – natural sunlight and sparkling water views – and the house is now a haven for the entire family. Furniture pieces from Indian (like the old Indian door), Moroccan and Turkish rugs and kilim cushions add to the boho chic relaxed vibe.
