Scandinavian inspired big family home in Down Under

Scandinavian inspired big family home in Down Under

One busy home it must be down there in Adelaide. Four children, and all still quite young, roaming around in this Scandinavian inspired big family home.

You can find the purity and love of the Scandinavian style are in every corner, a modern and incredibly bright home that looks so inviting. Light filled big spaces, natural materials and subtle colours throughout…

And it is especially nice to hear that the project was planned around the nature outside the house. The family wanted to make sure that all trees were safe and only then they started to plan…

Clean lines, lots of light and lots of white and wood. Keeping it calm and natural!

I love a big open kitchen. Usually my favourite place in a house, and especially as a big family definitely the place where ‘everything’ happens.

Find: wooden highchair*, white kids chairs from IKEA

Plywood seems to be very popular in Australia. I spot it quite often!

Big windows everywhere, there is hardly a difference between in- and outside…

A modern farmhouse with pops of colour and cool patterns

Hello Hello!
I am here with another cool family interior. Times three. Three kids rooms, one as fun as the other plus one fantastic ‘sleepover’ fortress to host little guests.

This modern farmhouse is situated in upstate New York and full of unexpected pops of colour and patterns. And it is really great to see how each kids room has its own personality and colour scheme. Lets open the door to some punchy colours, bold, funky wallpapers as well as traditional elements.

A very charming mishmash of styles:

I assume that we are looking at a family with 2 boys and one girl.  The boys’ rooms are very geographic and the little girl is living a pink dream with one striking wallpaper. (from Pierre Frey called Otomi)

And because of the three little ones, everything in the home has a very practical component too. Each surface was protected with hard-to-damage natural materials or coated in exterior-grade fabrics to avoid stress about spills or messes.  So clever and really something to keep in mind for future projects!

And they seem to have many sleepovers too…

At least this is how I see this room. To host little friends. Because I am counting 6 beds in here. And since each child has a bed in their own room this must be the sleepover haven. So cool! Each guest gets a little built-in shelf too to put down their important belongings.

And those bathrooms. That shower (which seems to be the size of our family bathroom here) is so fun. With a ‘real’ door and a bench inside. I am sold.

Talk about an entrance…

What do you think about this place? Nice place to spend weekends and holidays isn’t?

Enchanting family apartment in a lush neighbourhood

Enchanting family apartment

Interior Tuesday and we are visiting this beautiful family apartment in the heart of Stockholm. I was instantly drawn to the wonderful mix of modern, original features and vintage.

And it has a lush perspective too, because the apartment has a direct exit to an amazing courtyard!

Situated in the neighbourhood of Vasatan in Stockholm, this place is fantastic for families. Parks, shops, close to the center and full of life.

We can find the typical deep window sills (I miss them!), original windows, high ceilings, high floor sills and great wooden floors.

Let’s have a look around:

My favourite is the kitchen and I love that it is an open floor plan. Lots of light, and such a tasteful and very modern kitchen. The washed walls, colours of the cabinets, and that large dining table right by the window. Love it!

The whole place was renovated in 2015 with new electricity, a new floor plan, and the even raised the ceiling. Put great colours on all the walls, installed that stunning kitchen, and now it is on the market…

Can you see that the window sills are so deep, that you can actually use them as a desk?

And it is Stockholm…

If you are not planning to move there, you should absolutely go and visit. Especially during this time of the year… going through the Archipelago, strolling the streets, and enjoying the special Scandinavian light and air. It is special and beautiful!

Have a lovely day and if you would like to see more places from Stockholm how about this Vintage family haven or this charming place with lots of great ideas to take away.

Beautiful turn-of-the-century family apartment with a romantic touch

stockholm family apartment.

Hej! How are you? How about a little trip to Stockholm? I would not mind so much because I hear it is 23 and sunny. Compared to London where I am sitting behind my desk and faced with a sky that gets darker by the second…

(but I am not complaining because I am headed to Florence tomorrow and the forecast is 32)

But for now, lets stick with Stockholm and this gorgeous and very big family apartment which is in the perfect location. Which also means that it was just recently sold for a big load of money.

Look at this beautiful turn-of-the-century property, where beautiful original features meet modern touches. The great architect Andreas Gustaf Sällström actually used to live in this particular apartment.

And the ceilings are not just high, they are sky high and measure 3.10m. Probably I would feel quite small in there for once…

A very romantic children’s room that is definitely bigger than most. The details on the ceiling and above the door are adding to the sweet factor too of course!

The room even has a sofa, a big kid friendly table and lots of space for free play, dance, creativity and fun!

Situated right in the heat of the city, in the Kungsholmen neighbourhood, there are lots of restaurants, cafes and shops around.

Wow!

A charming family apartment in Paris

family apartment in Paris

We are back. After a little hick up yesterday I am back and I am so excited to share this charming family apartment in Paris with you.

Patrice, owner of the shoe brand Feiyue, and Laetitia’s, who is a clothing designer, beautiful old apartment hides behind an anonymous facade in the 9th arrondissement of Paris. An area I have lived during some of my Paris years too!

Patrice is a trained architect and the couple met in China for the first time. They were both on a business trip. Now they have their base in Paris and their little son Yume joined the family since then as well.

The couple opened up the hallway to create a large modern family kitchen. Totally understandable and so useful, especially for a family. I love kitchens and it is always a priority when house hunting, because there needs to be enough space for everyone and lots of cooking, activities and entertaining!

And the mix of modern and the traditional Parisian flair is lovely with these magnificent old fireplaces, large beautiful windows, and lovely old wooden floors. See for yourself:

Such a cosy spot inside that cool tipi… and I love to see a bit of Amsterdam in Paris…

Things: Tipi*, rug*, Amsterdam house wardrobe!

Yume owns a couple of super-cool vehicles. Having this ‘mattress haven’ adds a lot of calm to the room! And they become practical when it is sleepover time too.

Things: Yellow chair*, skateboard* and a selection of mattresses*.

And I love those inserted windows that you can find in a lot of places in Paris. They let in so much light that it is even worth to have a little less privacy in your bathroom (I am sure there is a little toilet for guests somewhere in the apartment too).

Gorgeous place and I will leave you with it for today. Because next week I will be off for my first trade show of the season and before that we have a busy weekend to squeeze in including a birthday party!

See you tomorrow!
