THE STYLE FILES LOVES: STYLISH BLACK

rugzw.jpg

Today’s post is about stylish black. Not too dark but just enough black tones to give a space (or outfit) a stylish look.

BEAUTIFUL BITS OF BLUE

Happy Monday! I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend. Today I have collected some images that all show a bit of blue. The top picture is definitely my favorite: those blue tiles are stunning. This image will go straight in my inspiration files!

MODERN BEACH HOUSE STYLE

I love the look of a modern beach house. With whites and natural materials such as wood and rattan you can create this clean yet cosy style. Of course you have to have the right type of house if you want this style. The gorgeous house in images number 1, 4, 5 and 7 is located in Sydney which is the perfect location for creating a modern beach home.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF WHITE

According to the calendar it is spring so I am ignoring the low temperatures here and I will start with Spring inspired posts again. Today is about white and beautiful light, an uplifting combination that brightens up any space. I love interiors with large windows (as in the second and last image) that can let as much natural light in as possible.

POPS OF HOT ORANGE

It is still very cold here for the time of year (no Spring yet) so I hope that these bold orange & red colors will brighten up our day!

LOVE FOR RAW WOOD

Today some examples of beautiful use of raw wood: wood as a holder for a light bulb (from Muuto), wooden stair cases, a mirror frame made from reclaimed wood and, my favourite, a house with a stunning wooden beam framework.
