A FRESH WHITE HOME WITH PASTEL ACCENT COLORS

This is the home of blogger Louise T. Johansen, her husband Jesper and their two daughters. There is a lot of white in this 114m2 villa located in Hedensted, Denmark. But the pastel accessories and furniture pieces give color and a feminine touch to the various rooms. The decor is a mix of designer brand items (such as Hay, Cph, Ferm Living, Eames) and IKEA, combined with vintage finds such as the vintage rugs. The result is a fresh and bright family home! Update: I received some questions about the shelving system in the dining area: these shelves are from IKEA.

I love these colorful cushions made of vintage fabrics! Not only are they great for indoor use but they also are perfect to give color to a garden and/or outdoor areas. These (image above) are from Barrington Blue, who also does some beautiful upholstered furniture pieces such as the bench below. And here you can find another source for kilim cushions.

This beautiful country cottage is situated in the middle of a forrest in Sweden. The home, which was in built in 1929, is decorated in a modern country style mixed with vintage pieces. Steel and concrete give a slight industrial touch. The beautiful black cabinet in the kitchen (image no. 6) was made from old windows that were found when the owners moved into the old house. A very lovely bright family home!
