A beautifully renovated parsonage in the Swedish countryside

This parsonage from the 1700's and featured in Lantliv had been uninhabited for fifty years. And then Gustaf Willers took it over and gave it a whole new lease of life. I absolutely love that he has stayed faithful to the style and the location but added a modern touch. I dream daily about buying a beautiful old Swedish house and renovating it. Perhaps one day i'll be posting about that? but for now, here's someone else's beauty!

If you understand Swedish it's worth taking a read of the article. There are so many lovely touches to the renovation, such as Gustaf's mother colouring in the 800 hand-printed flower baskets on the bedroom wallpaper by hand. Now that's dedication!  Makes me think. What can changes can I make in my home just by taking the time to use good old fashioned handiwork?

A Swedish black and white home with a lovely mix

Susann from Purple Area blog once told me if you would like to find a beautiful home, always look at the home of interior design bloggers (Suzann's home looks wonderful by the way, you can see pics here). The latest Plaza magazine also proves this with the home of the blogger behind the great blog 'Hannas Room'.......

The home has such a lovely mix of furniture, with modern items from IKEA such as the MINNEN extendable children's bed (I've got it for my little girl in white and love it) and beautiful mid-century vintage pieces like the dining room chairs. The bulb fairy lights are likely from Swedish shop Granit as are the white storage boxes shown above. And look.....it's shoes on display again... wonderful!

The pretty London home of Parma Lilic owner

This London home of Janie Jackson, owner of shop Parma Lilac is just so beautiful *sigh*. So simple, so light, so me! And I love the photographic style.

Pictures: Via Saint Honore
I remember reading an article about how to produce this type of effect with a camera, and one way is to cover the lens with a pair of thin denier tights, yes, I know! Worth a try anyway?! Unless you know of a slightly more modern app?

Happy Monday by the way. I hope you had a lovely weekend?!

Antwerp home with a beautiful flow of light

It's Friiiiiiday - woop woop!! And Friday deserves to be celebrated with an extra special home to drool over throughout the weekend! This Antwerp home featured in Milk Magazine belongs to Melanie Ireland founder of children's clothing company Simple Kids. When they first bought the house they hired an architect (Vincent Van Duysen) to knock through walls for a lovely flow of light. I also love how they have treated the floors and filled the fireplace full of magazines! A beeeeautiful home!

Looking closely there are lots of lovely details in this home - any favourites? The beautiful mirror perhaps?
Have a lovely weekend, any great plans?! And see you Monday!

key to a successful home office - a beautiful vintage chair!

Working from home is heavenly in itself, add a work space like this and I'm not even sure you're allowed to call it work! It seems every home office *needs* a fantastic vintage office chair.....

Do you have an aaaaawesom office chair or perhaps an entire work space that will make us cry with envy? if so, make sure you send me a pic!  I'm thinking I'll be back again this afternoon with some more inspiration for the home so pop back and say hi! Have a lovely day!

Beautiful Modern Style Residence Design

A flat roof provides opportunities to sit outside on an upper deck, which opens off a Modern Style room, with a full view of the water. The living spaces benefit from the east exposure, which allows the morning sun to penetrate the spaces, in the evening the harsh summer sun is blocked by the solid south wall.

Houses modern style

The second floor includes all bedrooms, including the laundry and a recreation room off the roof garden.
