This the home of Nina Blychert, a Swedish illustrator who now lives in London with her French husband and their two children. In her beautiful Edwardian house near Hyde Park Nina has combined the simplicity of Scandinavian style with French influences. I love the combination of old and new, like the modern pendant from Droog design combined with an old wooden table.
The beautiful summer weather here in The Netherlands enables us to have lots of lunches and diners in our garden. Which inspired me to do this most about 10 inviting al fresco dining areas. I hope you are enjoying summer (or winter, depending where you live) as much as I do!

I love the tiles from Made a Mano (I have posted about theme before). The tiles are entirely made by hand from lavastone and terracotta. The patterns and colors are gorgeous, combining different styles create a stunning and unique effect. The goal of this Danish company is: “to create a collection of tiles, countertops and sinks, combining ancient traditional handicraft with modern techniques. Revealing a sure sense of beauty and style.”
Another summer home today, this time the property is located on Sardinia, Italy. The interior is designed by Marina Wenger from Geneva. Most furniture pieces and accessories come from Asia: doors from Indian and other Indian and Chinese pieces create a warm and rustic look throughout the house.
About two weeks ago I featured a lovely nursery in neutral tones. As kids get a bit older they love color in their rooms. Today is all about colorful kids rooms. I love to keep the base (walls & floors) white or light and just add colorful accessories and furniture pieces to make the room fun! At the end of the post you can find some product suggestions to create this look.
This stunning wooden kitchen in an Amsterdam canal house is designed by Piet Jan van den Kommer. This Dutch designer does not only create beautiful kitchens but he designs other furniture pieces as well.
This small yet lovely home is designed by Studio Oink. The bright and cleaned line apartment is located in one of the most popular residential areas in Wiesbaden, Germany family. With lots of white and blond wood the decor style can be best described as Scandinavian.
