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 !

Rustic coziness in Sweden

Posted on nov 30, 2012 | 0 comments

First a farm and then a school, this house from 1901 in Hjortnäs outside Leksand was not built as a residence. But with a ceiling height of 3.6 meters, designer and calligrapher Ylva Sharp and her husband Daniel saw potential in this house and started a major renovation. They demolished a few walls to open space and make a generous kitchen with dining area. The old wood stove with a fireplace have become the kitchen’s heart. They used calm tones as grey and white, and the old school of 310 square meters has now become a bright and spacious home. « I like to change and renew at home with colours according to the season, by switching textiles, painting some furniture and take in seasonal plants » says Ylva. Carpets, cushions and tapestries are Ylva’s own design.

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.

Artistic shots of colours

Posted on nov 13, 2012 | 0 comments

This three bedroom loft in Stockholm has the typical Scandinavian mix of wood and white, contrasted by deep touches of colours. Pink carpet and curtains, blue wall, and a variety of art paintings and artworks so that you may think you are in an art gallery. This originality of colours is present in the whole apartment, where each bedroom is characterized by a colour : pink, blue or orange. In addition to that, a great feeling of space emanates from this loft with the spacious open space kitchen and the high clearance with the exposed beams.

Royal blue and color harmony

Posted on nov 6, 2012 | 0 comments

When I first saw this place, that’s the colorful association of the painting on the wall, the cushions on the sofa and the carpet that catched my attention. The predominance of royal blue and red bring the exact touch of color and harmony that was needed in this typical Scandinavian apartment.
