Stunning architect family villa on the island of Brännö

Stunning architect family villa on the island of Brännö

If you love island life, Scandinavian design and want to move into a stunning home that is all ready – this is your place!
You can find this stunning architect family villa on the island of Brännö, Sweden.

And Brännö is an island in the Southern Göteborg Archipelago and famous for its traditional summer dances and child-friendly beaches. On the island, cars are banned and there are only around 800 inhabitants.

Connected via ferry service from the city, here you can climb the cliffs and enjoy amazing views. The narrow roads and small wooden houses add to the island’s old-fashioned charm.

Today’s house is built of Gotland nuclear pine – an outstanding material with low maintenance that ages beautifully. The interior has a lot of wood as well and is painted in beautiful soft colors and clean lines. The lush garden is, thanks to the L-formation, protected from both wind and visibility.

Let’s have a look at this architect family villa:

The floor to ceiling windows really make this a very airy and light space that is both inviting and very stylish. I love that they used plywood for their kitchen, bathroom and more. It is a very underrated material with good longevity.

Can you imagine sitting on this deck with a cup of tea or working on projects? I can! I will admit that I am not an island person and could never imagine to live here permanently but luckily we are all different.

Because I can imagine this very nicely as a holiday home… a very luxury one!

Upstairs is a very nice and big children’s room that even has a little built-in playhouse!

Also painted in some lovely subtle shades and, again, lots of plywood. And those mint, rose and beige colour cimbination I find really very inspiring!

The master bedroom that houses a little baby at the moment as well. And that includes great built-in wardrobes too.

What do you think about this place? Open space, four lovely rooms, bright and in the middle of nature.

Beautiful Stockholm family apartment with vintage features

Stockholm family apartment with vintage features

Hello, bonjour and welcome into this dreamy family apartment situated in Stockholm. An elegant turn of the century with impressive ceiling heights of over 3 meters.

You will discover stucco, rosettes, door and window mirrors, and beautiful wooden floors. A dream! That is enhanced with the famous Scandinavian light and a current owner who knows how to turn a place into a personal haven. There are two very lovely children’s rooms in here.

And the location is lovely too. Lovely is an understatement really, because the apartment sits right on Kungsholmen. An island in central Stockholm that could not be more cool. A large selection of shops, restaurants and cafés, the subway, Rålambshovsparken and Kronobergsparken for greenery, and since you are on an island, you are never far from the water either.

Let’s go for a tour:

Kids room number one.

I love houses with rooms that are separated by windows. It is so charming and brings in a lot of light as well. And those cute nooks in front of a window, if I will ever be in the position to design my own house (one can dream), this will be on the list!

This apartment was completely renovated in 2016 and one bedroom has been divided into two with this mouth blown inner window.Genuis idea!

15 fun things for your Easter weekend

Paul and Paula blog

Hello there! How are you? Are you away for the Easter weekend? We will enjoy it here in London with friends. And sun. Because the forecast says – temperatures of 20 plus, lots of sun and BBQ. I am so excited.

Because what better than hosting friends, opening BBQ season, a real Easter Egg Hunt outside and doing a bit of sightseeing and sitting outside for coffee and toilet stops?

But before, I have compelled a sweet list for you:

Ira-Loves-Mae
Ira Loves Mae is founded upon the idea that less is always more. And their clothing inspires families to live more intentionally in the moments that matter most.

Special Day – lovely journals* to keep memories from baby’s first year. (great gift idea)

 

emily ward home giovanni ribisi
Emily Ward designed a family home for herself and actor Giovanni Ribisi. So cool!

Lush quit Social Media!

 

black linen jumpsuit mini me
After the mini me round up. I need to add this cool look. Jumpsuits* made in a soft, medium weight, washed linen and a relaxed and comfortable fit.

What Do 90-Somethings Regret Most?

 

house of hackney founders home
Do you know House of Hackney? This is how the founders live. So fun!

How about our crazy life as a family of 6?

 

doodly kids clothing
All Doodly items* are ‘approved by children’: they are suitable for active play and fun and contain unique elements that amuse little dreamers so much.

I have decided that I will follow the same approach to my Insta as I do here now – less is more. And instead of sharing photos just for the sake of sharing I will share the ones I truly love or when I feel I need to talk…

oak and the little ones
Oak and the little Folk* have the cutest leather shoes, pinafores and baby rompers!

Happy Easter and lots of sun for you too!

California mid-century meets effortless in this family home

California midcentury meets effortless in this family home

Hej! We are in lovely California today and even so I could write a lot about Jessica and her cool fashion style I am focusing on her cool and effortless family home.

Fashion stylist Jessica de Ruiter and her husband, artist Jed Lind, live here together with their daughter James. Nestled in the Silver Lake district of LA, it is a lovely mid-century home that is modern, elegant and light filled.

It features amazing use of plywood throughout and was updated during a two-year renovation period. However the couple decided to keep the main features.

Let’s have a tour:

Starting with James’ room of course. A lovely space that includes a sleeping area as well as a space for playing, reading as well as hiding or just relaxing for a bit.

Below you will see the built in plywood arrangement that has an integrated seating area. It is so cool and is a great idea for small spaces too.

“Legos live in the basket, stuffed animals in the drawer, crayons in the buckets at the easel etc… and that way it’s easy to tidy up quickly and get things away and out of sight for the most part. And if your storage containers and vessels are attractive they can make kid stuff look good when put away.”

Decor: A wall-mounted swan* by Tamar Mogendorff,” the natural tipi* from Vilac, cute rabbit lamp* and the rocking chair* that you will keep forever.

Such a relaxed oasis that feels eclectic, and timeless.

California meets a bit of Scandinavian design and includes gorgeous textures, wood built-ins, and whimsical kid-friendly details.

Very often I dream about California actually. Since we did our long road trip I am in love and could go back all the time. Obviously I am only seeing the positive parts of beach, sun, surfing and chilling. Oh and Tex Mex cuisine. But hey, otherwise it would not be a dream…

More house envy from California? How about this Venice Beach family abode ?

Two contemporary children’s rooms with flair

Two contemporary children's rooms with flair

Today we are in Australia again and get a peek into the home of one of the founders of Norsu Home.

Better, I picked out the two children’s rooms. One for a boy and one for a girl. Easy to spot which is which but still none of them sticks out to be an overly stereotyped girly room. Or superman-kind for the boy.

They are both very lovely and decorated with lots of attention to detail and some very cool ideas.

Lets have a look:

Paul & Paula: Two contemporary children's rooms with flair

The girl’s room.

Some shades of pink, blush and apricot as well as natural wood and lots of white. Very airy and with the bold prints from Australian Pax & Hart also very modern. These prints really keep the romantic flair at bay.

For dollhouse inspiration – please have a look at my dollhouse edit.

The mouse chairs and table are from nofred.

The boy’s room.

I love that green cupboard. I love green. So refreshing and a colour you do not see that often, especially indoors (apart from plants of course!).

In case you wonder, the cloud lights are from fromagelarue.

I am often dreaming about our own house these days. Being able to really do, plan, install and make things the way you want it. Are you a house owner? Long story, maybe something I could try and write about on Friday’s

Anyway, have a great Tuesday. Tomorrow I will show the best mini me looks of the season. Stay tuned…
