sunday special: all white interiors

bedroom wood

I always love interiors that are all white. They look beautiful in one color, fresh and serene, yet I think it is really hard to pull this look off without making a room look sterile and uninviting. I found some examples in which “all white” actually works (in my opinion : )). Combining different  materials (wood, tiles, a mix of fabrics) and different shades of white, add texture to a room. Collecting different objects (shapes, materials) in the same color, makes a room feel more like a home. I love the collection of all white objects by Petra Bindel below, because everything is in the same color, any object can be added to your collection. What do you think of white interiors?

Sunday special: black white blue inspiration

When I opened the new edition of Dutch Interior design magazine VTWonen, I couldn’t stop staring at this amazing apartment of stylist Susanna Vento. There are so many things I love about this home. The white walls and white floors contrast nicely with the black and blue furniture. I like it how Susanna layered several rugs. Such a difference, compared to just the the striped rug!

Loving the black and white pine threes wall paper by Fine Little Day, particularly this time a year.
Want to shop the style of Susanna, check out my finds below!

Sunday special: Doo Wop pendant lights

Originally produced in the 50s by Louis Poulsen, taken out of their catalogue in the 80s, the navy pendant, now called Doo Wop is back in production. Very close to its original design and production method, only the colors are more up to date. Love the design of the lamp and styling of the shoot.

The simple design of this lamp makes him versatile; from living room to kitchen and children’s bedroom. Its a perfect choice! The pendant in brass is my favorite. Its on my wishlist! What is your favorite color?

Sunday Special: bright white appartment

I love these blue doors in this all white interior, a real eye catcher! Another way color is added in this room is by using bright colored cushions with different prints, books and fresh flowers.

The kitchen is all white and simple, yet the open shelves add color and make the kitchen area much more inviting!

The study and hallway are filled with prints, mood boards, shoes and bags.  Yet because everything has its place and the walls and floor are painted white, it doesn’t make this space look messy at all.

This lovely apartment is situated in Göteborg, Sweden and was until recently up for sale! Alvhem Makleri and Design is a company behind many of these  stylish apartments. They do not only sell the apartments but also decorate them, providing not just houses but a lifestyle. The company also owns a shop with inspirational pieces for buyers and sellers. Visit their website for more inspiration, and remember some appartments are up for sale!

Sunday special: summer house

This beautiful small summerhouse of stylist Sidsel Zachariassen brings back the summer a bit for me. Love the the use of different shades of green and grey both inside and outside,  turning the house and the garden into one big living space.

Sunday Special: wonderful wallpaper

“Wallpapers by Scandinavian designers” is a new collection by Borastapeter with classic Scandinavian designs by top designers from the 50s Arne Jacobsen, Sven Markelius, Karl Axel Pehrson and Stig Lindberg (see above). Besides this unique collection in collaboration with Ljungbergs Textil, Borastapeter has plenty of other beautiful designs to pick from (see below). I love white or neutral painted walls but this wonderful wallpaper really makes me exited to try out some patterns at home!

Sunday Special – white walls and a bit of color

This interior is a perfect example of how to make a white interior look fresh, yet homey and unique. The white walls and floor provide a neutral basis, while the furniture and especially the books, paintings and cushions bring some yellow and blue. So simple, but love it!
