the-style-files-bedroom-1

Today we continue the tour around my home with the master bedroom. We have kept the room basic and light with warm materials & textures such as wood and wool. The prints on the antique blanket box in the second images are from Marjon Hoogervorst (left print) and Therese Sennerholt (right print). The woolen bedspread with pompoms, the copper pendant light and the wooden stools are available from Le Souk. Next week I will be showing you my son’s bedroom and playroom! Previous tours: our living room, our kitchen, our garden, our bathroom.

THE FASHION FILES: EVERLANE FALL/WINTER COLLECTION

everlanefw1

This weekend I did some serious online shopping. With colder weather approaching I realized that I did not have any fall/winter clothes. I did most of my shopping at Everlane as I love their basic elegant yet casual fashion. Everlane works with best factories around the world, the very same ones that produce your favorite designer labels, but they manage to keep their designs affordable. My favorite fall pieces is the black cotton shirt (above) and their chunky knit cardigans (I bought the winter white cardigan and also one in navy).

Another quote that I feel strongly about. Have a wonderful weekend with beautiful moments!

A WOODEN KITCHEN WITH A CONCRETE TOP

wooden kitchen 2

I love this beautiful wooden and concrete kitchen. This house is often rented for commercials and magazine products so I keep seeing this lovely kitchen popping up on tv and print. The cabinets are made from old, reclaimed wood. The concrete countertops give the kitchen a raw look. Concrete stains easily as concrete is porous but you can prevent serious stains by rubbing olive oil in to the concrete. If you don’t want stains at all you can better use a Ceasarstone countertop in a grey concrete-like color (like we have in our kitchen).

The streets are filled with fallen leaves, as well is our garden. My four year old son loves to collect beautiful leaves in all shapes and colors.

If there are instructions you can find them by following the links mentioned in the source & credit section at the end of this post.

BAUHAUS INSPIRED STONEWARE PIECES

ferm-neue1

I’m loving these new stoneware pieces by Danish brand Ferm Living. The tableware collection is inspired by Bauhaus classics, using strictly geometric shapes. The look is softened by the vivid grey glaze, which gives the pitcher an unique touch. You can see this “Neu Collection” here.

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!
