This is the home of Ylava Skarp in Leksand, Sweden. Her stunning house was recently featured in Swedish magazine PLAZA Interior. I love the high ceilings (image above), the combination of white, wood and black (image below) and that typical Swedish wood burning stove.
The combination of black, white and wood really works well in interiors. It is classical and the neutral colors have a calming atmosphere, while wood gives a bit of warmth. Above and below some inspiring images that show this beautiful combination of colors and materials.
This small and cosy family home is created in an industrial building in Paris. A few years ago some friends and investors bought this former tapestry factory and they converted it into various apartments. This apartment is beautifully decorated with vintage and designer furniture pieces.
A true eye-catcher is the wire lamp from Marie Christophe, a French artist who makes whimsical and gorgeous sculptural lamps and chandeliers with curved wire and colorful beads
Kirstie van Noort is a graduate from the Design Academy Eindhoven in The Netherlands. This Dutch designer makes the most beautiful ceramic pieces! Above and below are some items from her collection. The subtle colors are stunning and fit really well in this season’s pastel trend.
Luckily Kirstie’s ceramics are for sale. For more information about her work and ceramics you can contact here at [email protected]
This is the home of Caroline Delaudes, a lawyer living and working in Paris, France. As she wants her home to be a quiet oasis when she comes back from a hectic day, it is decorated in muted colors and natural materials such a wood. Caroline took over the apartment, which is located in the 3rd arrondissement, from her grandmother in 2004. She renovated the entire house preserving the original style but added modern touches. I love the beautiful light coming through the large, glass doors.
Last week we have had some beautiful winter weather here in The Netherlands. It seems that the entire nation was skating on the frozen lakes and canals. I have been enjoying this winter wonderland but to be honest I am looking forward to Spring. I have some lovely Spring inspired posts lined up for you but before I start this series I want to show you this cosy winter home.
