Scandi 50′s

Posted on jan 22, 2013 | 0 comments

Today we are heading to Seddon, suburb of Melbourne, Australia. Emma and Damon have been living here for twelve years, and have managed to squeeze four bedrooms and two bathrooms into this modest Victorian cottage. The Scandinavian and mid-century design is clearly present here, but also a distinctly Australian aesthetic, using a colour palette of desert orange and gumleaf grey/green.

Cabin retreat

Posted on jan 21, 2013 | 0 comments

Pure and simple, this traditional Massachusetts cabin would be perfect for a weekend retreat in total serenity. Three years ago, the owners filmmaker Bobby Houston and his partner Eric Shamie decided to turn this 1960s rancher in the Berkshire mountains into their own personal getaway. Bobby and Eric added an abundance of windows to make the house feel like a part of nature, rather than a retreat from it. Bright wood, white furniture, stone wall… everything reminds us nature ! I love the cool wood effect of the coffee table in the living room !

Christmas in Arizona

Posted on jan 7, 2013 | 2 comments

When major league ballplayer Bill Mueller and his wife, Amy, had to move from Massachusetts to Arizona with their three children Lexi, Tucker, and Dawson, the couple brought old-fashioned New England charm to their brand-new desert home. The place is cozy, with a tufted bench providing a place to sit at the foot of the bed, a stone fireplace keeping things toasty on the covered patio, furnished like a full-fledged living room… A wall of vintage beveled mirrors is decorating the elegant bathroom above the claw-foot tub. For Christmas in this Southwestern home ? Instead of hauling out shiny tinsel and multicolored lights, Amy turns to fresh clippings of pine and spruce, Kraft paper, and wooden ornaments.

At home, London fashion creator Bea Deza seeks to create the perfect atmosphere for inspiration. Freedom and eclecticism are the keywords for this pronounced decoration style. Guitars and keyboards are combined with vintage pieces. One of the highlights of the house is its beautiful black fireplace and the vintage sofas.

Colourful playground

Posted on jan 5, 2013 | 0 comments

Sofia moved here five years ago, with her husband and four children in this creative home in Katrineholm, Sweden. She runs the blog and web store Mokkasin and uses her home’s basement for shop’s inventory and sometimes photo studio. The house was first not so pretty, and everything had to be changed or renovated to become the colourful and joyful playground you see.
