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

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!

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.

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.

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!

Some things that caught my eye this week: an ethnic basket, a lovely necklace, beautiful wooden spoons, a natural style bedroom, a rustic bread and more.

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.

This modern, clean lined Danish home is decorated with beautiful ethnic style furniture and accessories. I’m loving the various kilim rugs and cushions.

I’m loving this dress! I ordered the dress myself and I was not disappointed when I received it (I hate it when something looks beautiful in a picture but not in real life). I love that the dress is versatile: you can wear it to the beach, during a evening out in town and with a jacket you can also wear it to the office (the fabric is not transparant). As the dress is long and because of the draped style I would advice to get a size smaller than you normally would, especially when you are not that tall.

Today some loveliness in pretty pastel colors. Pastels are actually a little bit too sweet for my taste but used sparingly they can give a lovely feminine touch.
