kids interiors

We want to move into this amazing playroom!

playroom ideas

We are heading all the way down to Australia for some delightful children’s rooms today. Bright, fresh, and perfectly designed for little people to hang out, be creative, and to enjoy sweet dreams.

You will discover one spectacular playroom that is so inviting and fun – I want to move in.

By the way, are you ready for Easter or has it vanished from your ‘list’ with everything else going on? We will definitely do an Easter Egg Hunt in our little garden and the kids are already so excited. And after that we will enjoy a brunch. Normally we do invite friends over but this year we have to skip that tradition. Positive note: More food for us. Ha!

But lets come back to this week’s interior gem and all the amazing playroom ideas to take away from here:

And? Amazing right?

And do you remember the elephant chairs and the fun wallpaper?

I think it is fair to assume that a little boy is sleeping in this pretty nursery. And yes, it is a very ‘clear gender’ attribution however with the size of the room, lovely light, and white furniture I am still enjoying it very much!

More fun kids spaces from Australia? How about these whimsical kids rooms?

Blush Peach and Savannah Sunset coloured family home

Blushing Peach and Savannah Sunset coloured family home

Oh lord. The place I am showing you today had me at first sight. It is a rather small space but the use of space and colour palette make it so stunning. I am truly in love and want to redecorate right away.

This unique attic has a special atmosphere, some Art Nouveau soul, and a whole lot of character.

The colour palette is based on a landscape photograph from Oman by the photographer Chiara Zonca. The pale pine floor became the sand, the pink shifts in the sunset dunes became walls and moldings, dark shadows in rock formations became the bedroom’s dark red and black details. And the ceilings were painted in pigeon blue.

But the best part is how the colours play out during the day. Starting the days in warm golden light and getting more cosy during the darker hours of the evening.

In short: It is amazing and I will let the pictures speak for themselves:

The kids room is the cutest. Sitting right under the roof with every inch carefully used and means the little one literally falls asleep under stars here. And there is plenty of space for playing, sleeping, storing and growing.

Usually I select the interiors I show here based on their children’s rooms. Which was the case here too, however the star is the kitchen for me. I just love it. I love how they did the lighting, the black that gives it more the impression of being a piece of furniture than a kitchen. And that window with the deepest window sill I have ever seen. So pretty!

Altogether the combination of the wall colour, the mustard sofa, and black cabinets is so interesting. What do you think?

Incredibly charming family apartment in Gothenburg, Sweden

Incredibly charming family apartment

Here in London things got more serious yesterday evening and measures to stop the virus to spread are strict. No total lock-down yet but I guess if people still do not follow the government’s advice we will get there sooner than later.

And since the weather is gorgeous and I find it important to get a dose of fresh air with the children between home schooling and feeding them all day long I hope we can prevent it.

But enough with the covid-19 talk. Let’s visit a very charming and unconventional family home in Gothenburg, Sweden. Just to change our mind a little and to get inspired. I totally love the exciting floor plan,  the arched original windows, and white wooden floors. And that open kitchen!

Gorgeous original details, 3m high ceilings, and lots of daylight turn this place into a  calm, unpretentious and relaxed atmosphere.

And as usual, I will start with showing you the kids room:

Elephant wallpaper anyone?

And that little nook turned into a cute desk. Very neutral colour combination and all the cushions make it very cosy.

Ahhhh, I so love that big table. This is totally up my street and that (I guess) DIY lamp is so cool. And of course that bench along the wall which makes everything so much more cool.

3 big windows to let in that special Scandinavian light!

That display wall is definitely worth to remember and to take away inspiration for our own homes. Loving the mix of prints, illustrations, as well as the different styles of frames.

Coupled with the pillows – an equal mix of fun colours, design, and a mix of modern and more traditional.

More stunning places in Gothenburg? How about this lush place or this very cosy family apartment?

A colourful and welcoming home for a large family

A colourful and welcoming home for a large family

Kristian’s and Mariah’s apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark is a colourful and welcoming home for a large family.

Kristian Lillelund works as an interior designer and loves practical and modern solutions. So when the apartment transformed into a home for a four-child family, he came up with some very clever solutions.

No space is unused, lots of storage compartments, space saving ideas, and cool DIY projects. Kristian built the cool kitchen, a sofa that is also a bookcases, and multifunctional plywood furniture. The main colours are pink and grey and the result is a fun and vibrant family home.

Welcome in:

The kids rooms are all about  compact living. Loft beds, wall desks that integrate into the interior, and lots of custom-made furniture for optimal function.
Smart and cool!

The kitchen is definitely my favourite space in this apartment and I love the grey walls. Before the renovation, it was much smaller and the small bedroom next to it was compromised for a lovely spacious family kitchen.

Again, everything is smart and flexible in terms of storage. And it really looks like a great place to hang out, draw pictures, have a glass of wine with a friend, and lots of afternoon snacks.

Sofa is shelf. Two-in-one, but very sleek and fun. And again, the grey and pink colour scheme…
