Pinterest inspiration mood on the bright side this morning.
Not every day you see a townhouse like this for sale in Stockholm.
Most mornings when being in Los Angeles I go for a run or a walk. Not as much for the exercise as for the love of looking at all the houses and gardens and all of their different looks and souls. As much as I love Scandinavian design and working as an interior stylist mostly featuring those influences, I´m sometimes a bit bored with the trends making all homes look almost the same (and before anyone says anything, I know I´m a part of creating those trends so it´s partly my fault too). The trend right now in Sweden is so beautiful, classic and with the perfect natural color tones in combination with beautiful wood and art pieces. And I love it. And I´m tired of it too…I´ve never been one of wanting just one thing in terms of decor and styling. I like mixing and it often starts with the love for one specific object and then creating a story from that specific piece.
Anyhow – the bedroom featured here I found on American lifestyle site The Effortless Chic and I think it very well captures what I in addition to Scandinavian style love too (along with several other things of course). It´s the warmth, the colors, the personal touch and the effortless cosiness. What I fell in love with at first sight was the beautiful vintage rug that seems to have angled corners. It´s nice with a little variation, right?
I´m personally not a fan of having my desk in our bedroom (I used to have it that way and had trouble relaxing while seeing the piles of work when going to bed at night). But if I where to have a work space in the bedroom again these images felt very inspiring. Also great for a smaller space.
We are soon off for LA again & this time my mother and my sister and her family will join us and I just can´t wait to show them around. The other day was a bit hectic though as one of our two house rentals was cancelled last minute. Apparently the previous tenant had been so reckless that major renovations have to be done…. Luckily we found a new house that seems really good too so fingers crossed the pictures are telling the truth. Meanwhile searching for places to stay I stumbled across the recently opened NoMad Hotel. A drink on that roof top is now on the to do list.
Found via Remodelista.
No surprise there is a stylist living in this apartment. This is the home of interior stylist Elin Kickén , 1/2 of very talented stylist duo SundlingKickén with impeccable taste. Don´t miss out on their blog either, it´s a daily read for me. Inspiring interviews, monochrome deco in featured color scheme, products to wish for and images from their work. You can find it here.
