Yesteryear spirit

Posted on déc 8, 2012 | 0 comments

Located in central London, British designer Jo Willer and her family live in this house that looks like an English cottage in the heart of the City. This place mixes Scandinavian and English style. Designer for the brand Designers Guild, Jo is constantly on travel to discover new homes, and brings back home new ideas for her own place. She likes to mix genres with harmony and has found real treasures in London flea markets, from antique furniture (nineteenth century iron bed, bathtub from a castle in Normandy, stove…) to vintage decorative items. The kitchen is the heart of the home, and Jo used mismatched antique furniture that she painted to create the yesteryear spirit that she wanted. The charm of the fully restored bathroom is also reinforced by the passage of time. Perched at the top of the house, the office library looks like an old attic where books and coziness invite reading.

Did you say colours ?

Posted on déc 1, 2012 | 0 comments

Red, turquoise, almond green, yellow… Colours ! That’s what comes in mind when you see this 70 square meters apartment in Vasastan, a disctrict of Göteborg in Sweden. The numerous art paintings, the cushions or the lamps, every element of this apartment brings its touch of colour and pops again all the white ! Love the sweet pink and purple balcony !

A tree in the house

Posted on nov 29, 2012 | 0 comments

Art director Cecilia Eklund Malmborg and furniture designer Michael Malmborg live here together with their two children in Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm. The birch trees in the middle of the living room catch the eye and create a true charm. The mix of vintage and new is really well done here, with design lamps and vintage frameworks and chairs.
