IMM2016 | Italian classics and bentwood favourites

Last weekend I had a quick visit to IMM Cologne, I never visited before and on invitation of Thonet I had the possibility to go back and forth on one day, a great way to get a first impression! Thonet's stand was our meeting point for the day, showcasing most of the new in and outdoor collection I talked about before in this post Thonet factory tour. We also had a visit at Design Post of which you will find some impressions off in my previous post post.

White Scandinavian loft bedroom

I am still in my big black & white flow of showing beautiful white homes with strong black accents, I have always believed a light and white room needs a good dose of black and I guess the bedroom in this loft in no exception. The mirror doors beautifully reflect the huge amount of light coming through the industrial glass wall, while a small amount of green and natural coloured wooden drawers add a little warmth to the room.

STRING X Lotta Agaton at IMM2016

With Lotta Agaton as their regular stylist for both events and new collection pictures, String's booth really is a personal highlight for me at every fair. I never really get bored of that typical Lotta Agaton touch and I think this years styling is one of her best... it might have to do with me being a huge lover of this black mood.

Industrial minimalism | pictures from my home

From the minute I used this table for my Christmas decorations, I knew I loved to keep it a bit longer in the living. It's a relative simple metal table I bought in the sale some time ago for my home office, proving all things simple and minimalistic always work for me! Actually I wish I had bought two of them, have a look here how cute it looked in my office!

Modernism Reimagnied | MENU Spring 2016


With the new year started  brands are presenting their new collections and first thing that comes in mind when thinking about Spring might be light and airy. It were the beautiful dark colours, smoked glass and steel though, that caught my eye when looking at the new Menu collection all beautiful presented in their new look book 'Modernism Reimagnied'

Stylish shoe storage ideas

Last week I showed some beautiful solutions using black accents for your hallway: Inspiration for your hallway | black accents where shoes were hidden in small cabinets. To be honest I have never liked shoe cabinets, most of them are extremely ugly or old fashion. I am not a real shoe collector and actually only have a few pair of sneakers and black boots.

Raw Spartan | The industrial home of a Rick Owens fan

When looking at the 140 m2 apartment in the middle of Copenhagen of Swedish stylist Ingeborg Wolf and Claus Larsen many people say it has a New York style, Ingeborg herself is more inspired by the Raw romance of some Parisian apartments.

Although I do not own anything designed by Rick Owens, simply because I never really dare to even think I could own and most of all afford a piece at home, I see the love for his style in this home. The apartment is overall kept in black, white and gray with materials like wood, iron and leather.

STRING | New collection

This week I booked my first tickets and like every year I will spending a few days in Milan to see all things new, hot and happening! Major interior brands are sending their press releases around and yesterday was no exception, as a blogger I love to receive them but to be honest I am not really impressed by product pictures, even if the product itself is amazing. I love to style and I love to look at beautiful styled pictures. No wonder it was an email from String that caught my eye!

Inspiration for your hallway | Black accents

Januari is a funny month isn't it, with the Christmas stuff cleaned away and the new year ahead off us I always feel like making new plans for the home. I am curious to see where brands are coming with in the upcoming months, will you follow some of the trends or like me, just keep doing what you love most? I am still into a darker pallet, I just love white walls and dark accents, like I have been showing on the blog over the last weeks.

An white attic conversion with industrial details in Paris

The owner of this converted attic space did an amazing job on transforming a brown and dark attic into a light and modern living space. A black spiral staircase in the center leads bed and bathroom. I think the sitting area is really beautiful with the sofa's placed in a circle, wondering where the lamp is from, it looks like the motif could have been designed by Paola Navone some years ago, not to sure though.

Sense of Scandinavia



Skandinavisk asked me what is the 'Sense of Scandinavia' for you? I haven't seen all of Scandinavia yet! Finland is still on my wish list, I have not seen the Northern light yet and it would be a dream to have a trip through the woods when covered in snow!
