Bohemian creativity in this Copenhagen home

Bohemian creativity

When I saw this place last week I knew I had to share this with you as soon as possible. It is so cool, with lots of creative ideas and a great bohemian vibe throughout. You will love it!

This old industrial building is situated in Copenhagen and is the home of  Sus Mogensen and her family. And when they bought the place they  changed everything  from the ground up. Many things you see in the home are DIY projects so I invite you to take some inspiration. And they used many reclaimed materials to keep it affordable but also sustainable. This home is so warm and unique, please come in:

Loving the big windows, velvet, the mustard coloured sofa, as well as the floor in the bathroom.

The colours are so warm and the home is tinted in some golden reflection when the beautiful Scandinavian lights shines in…

Floor envy anyone?

There is a story to it as well: The wooden floor was once a kitchen that has been moved to the living room and a batch of hand-made bricks forms new flooring. To prevent the floor from getting too “thick”, each tile was cut in half by hand and laid in a beautiful pattern.

And that kids room. So lush… I went out to see if I can find some additional images to show you a little more and was lucky through The Nordroom. And as you can see, more ‘gold’….

Altogether, the decor feels warm, personal and just very cosy. Really very bohemian luxury, rustic and charming.

More Copenhagen home inspiration? How about this colourful family home?

As usual packed with fashion, reads, news, interiors and more for the whole family.

A wonderful warm eclectic family home in London

wonderful warm eclectic family home in London

Hello Tuesday! Hello you all!
How are you and how are you holding up?

Today I am sharing a really cool family home that you will love. It is situated in Notting Hill, one of my favourite London neighbourhoods and has lots of fun details and surprises. And you will discover the quirky English style mixed with some modern touches.

It is a 19th-century Regency property that was divided into several flats. However the current homeowners renovated it and turned it into a large family home. Moreover I am so smitten with the mix of colours, fabrics, and furniture. Because we can find lots of soft blues, pinks and greens. Together with some great furnishings and artwork the place is a warm haven.

So, please come in and enjoy this wonderful harmonious home where past and present seamlessly blend together:

Of course we are starting with the children’s room. And what a delightful room this is.

You feel like you landed in a lovely countryside castle but at the same time it is home to a wonderful big table that invites to go creative. Surrounded by some modern chairs and Maileg bunnies.

And all the patterns (curtains, rugs…) as well as colours and choice of wallpaper are so good, it is a feast for the eye.

I am sitting right by the window on one of these cool armchairs and just watch family kitchen life. I will be very happy! Thank you…

Again: The combination of colours and fabrics is delightful. I can’t stop looking at these images… and I hope you had a wonderful home tour as well.

And if this is your cup of tea, you should definitely check out this eclectic family home.

Industrial nursery with warm Scandinavian undertones

Industrial nursery with warm Scandinavian undertones

Hello Hello! How are you all doing? I really hope that your time at home works out ok for you. We are ok over here but I have to say that my days are really filled with home schooling and there is not much left for work.

Most projects and events have been postponed anyway, but even writing an article is tricky. And I admit – I did not anticipate that. Moreover, I thought that I could squeeze in a bit of work here and there.
But hey, it is what it is and we are staying positive. We have food, we are healthy, and we even have a garden. All good!

Therefore, whenever I manage to publish something I feel a little proud. And since I do not feel very inspired to bringing you things to buy and so on I am focusing more on interiors. Because they can really lift a mood and give you a little kick. Plus, they might inspire a little project in your own four walls. Remember the art prints for kids, a really cool way to give a room a new and quick new look.

But let’s talk about todays interior! This industrial nursery with warm Scandinavian undertones is so full of personality. Please come in:

Little Lila is living in Leytonstone, London together with her parents Claire Brennan, a fashion stylist, and George Chapman, an automotive content strategist.

It is a four-story Victorian semi home with high ceilings, lovingly collected mirrors and furniture, timeless investment pieces, and  a warm-industrial vibe with a Scandi twist. All over you will find plenty of blacks and grays alongside whites and light blues.

And Lila’s room? “We wanted her room to retain the character and personality that we’d tried to create throughout the house.”

My favourite nook in her room is the fireplace. Perfect spot for decor, and with the chipped and original green paint it gives the room a lovely charm.

Sharing some more corners of this interesting home. Which is a true family house with little toys and kids paintings here and there.

Claire and George did most of the necessary renovations and extension by themselves. And they exposed or renovated as many of the original features as possible. For example the floorboards and door frames are all original. And the slate fireplaces on the ground floor come from George’s parents’ converted pigsty in Somerset!

Creative Regency style family townhouse in London

Creative Regency style family townhouse in London

Come in and dream! Yes. Dream! This beautiful townhouse in London is such a great mix of styles and interesting ideas. Plus a very cool colour scheme throughout the property.

Starting in the basement with a pink kitchen, moving upwards into green, and turning blue like the sky when stepping into the children’s rooms.

The decoration is both design and traditional, and combines the traditional Regency style of its time with a design extension to the garden, featuring a living area and an open kitchen. The house was restored and refurbished by its architect-owner for his family.

Come and have a look inside this creative Regency style family townhouse in London:

I enjoy seeing that the old historical details have been preserved and the combination with modern design, when done right, enhances the end result. Old and new blend together, we can find modern steel features, exposed brick walls, wooden floors, and a kitchen out of a decor magazine.

Holly Grove is the most distinctive part of the conservation area, characterised by a rigorous building line of paired and terraced villas in which strong and simple brick details are used to create a steady rhythm of vertical elements.”

The house has five bedrooms and is situated in Holly Grove. A residential street in Peckham, buzzling with cafes, boutiques and restaurants. Plus it is a lovely green and family friendly area as well.

Ever dreamed about a pink kitchen? You might after this one! What an impressive open-plan lower-ground floor kitchen and living space which opens fully to the garden through glazed doors.

Loving the exposed bricks and curved archway.

The house is very bright, somehow playful, and definitely very welcoming. I would absolutely love to have a cup of tea in that kitchen…
