A relaxed Danish oasis in Palma, Mallorca

Tuesday, 6 October 2015

It's about this time of the year when I get torn between hanging on to the summer sun or embracing the cosy autumn chill. Yesterday's post was all about the roaring 'kakelugn' (or masonry oven) in a swedish home and chunky knits and today it's about natural light, rattan and bamboo furniture and morrocan tiles - sorry! Owned by Danes Tine Kjeldsen of Tine K Home and her family, this apartment in the Santa Catalina area of Palma, Mallorca serves as an ideal escape from the chilly Danish winter and her permanent family home on the island of Funen. Let's take a tour...

Such a cool, calm space don't you think?

Nearly all the furniture you see in this apartment is from Tine K Home

I'm such a big fan of Mallorca - my sister lives in the North of the island and I love visiting her and taking in the beautiful wild nature of the Serra de Tramuntana world heritage site and their surrounds as well as taking dips in the sparkling Mediterranean sea. Have you been?

Another Dane with impeccable taste is author Annika Von Holdt - I once featured her fabulous home here, and frequently stop by her instagram gallery to drool over pics taken at her winter escape in the Bahamas. Imagine?!

Round-up of today's favourite Pinterest inspiration:

This beautiful indoor / outdoor space...*sigh*.

A fab Finnish micro-cabin.

Love this pretty and relaxed kitchen with open shelving and mix matched chairs.

Today's comfort food - baked Italian oregano meatballs mmmmm!

Have a lovely day!

The perfect home in which to kick off the week

Monday, 5 October 2015

It's suddenly gone quiet - my man left on his bike for work, the girls are at school / nursery. It's just me, my freshly brewed coffee and my super chunky knit Libertine cardigan). It's one of those Monday's when I feel like I'm never going to wake up - think I need this for breakfast?). I'm going to kick off the week in sunny sweden - and a delightful Gothenburg home tour. The show-stopper really is the roaring Kakelugn in the corner of the sitting room, don't you think? - that and the magnificent high ceilings and period features, coupled with soft light grey walls and beautiful light wood flooring. I'm going to revise my earlier text and say - I think I need this for breakfast with a latte, while padding around here. What do you say - could that be a good way to kick off the week?!

Such a beautiful space!

I do love my baths - and actually have a wooden tray across mine too - but I love the idea of using a long slab of rustic wood.

The colour scheme is so calm - for a similar light grey paint colour try this one

More serene white and grey homes include this delightful space in Finland,  a graphical Finnish home and a black, white and grey Swedish pad.

This morning I had a little cruise around Pinterest, and found some truly inspiring pictures - here is a round up of some of my favourites: imagine hanging out in this cabin or this cabin for a few days? Got a tiny home? This raised bed solution is super cute and cool and creates oodles more space. And how about sitting and working from this spot today?

Have a great start to the week!
