Cheerful Dutch interior spaces to brighten up your day

I do love a home which puts a smile on my face and brightens up my day, don't you? And it seems Dutch photographer Hans Mossel is an expert in finding them. Each of these spaces from Hans' photography portfolio ooze the 'cheerful family home' vibe. Pure inspiration for adding a touch of colour to the home! I can't work out which room I love the most? Can you?

Any favourites? I think the pink in the bathroom and hall is pretty fabulous!

I also love the rustic wooden benches which appear in a number of pictures. I found the rustic workman's benches I use as a bedside table in my bedroom here.

My daughter has the little yellow Fjäll Räven rucksack (backpack) you see hanging in the hall. It's a real, Swedish design classic and amazingly practical too. It's exciting to see them starting to appear on the backs of people in London too! You can buy them here.

Have a lovely day and see you tomorrow!

PS My husband and I are planning on going for a weekend away sans children this autumn- yay! Any tips on wonderful, unique, quirky or simply beautiful places to stay in Europe? Tips very welcome!



A dreamy little space to call home

One of my dreams is to have a a work studio in my (future) garden which doubles as a pretty guest house for friends and family. Do you share a similar dream?  Then I came across this shed conversion on Design Sponge and my idea was immediately brought to life! Over the space of two months designer, stylist and artist Paige Morse converted a shed in her back garden into a stunning Scandinavian inspired black and white retreat. Her goal was to create a space from which she can work, She was so thrilled with the outcome she now actually lives in the 'Casita' and rents out her house to afford the lifestyle she so desires: to work on her creatives full time. What an inspiration?!

Be still my beating heart!

This really is the casita of my dreams! The only thing I would add is a turf roof as seen on this and this home. How about you? Could you see yourself working / living here?

You can see the full before and after shots over at Design Sponge and read more about Paige's work here.

Have a lovely day!


A monochrome Gothenburg apartment

Hello! How's your week going?! Mine's going great - thanks to a surprise parcel in the post yesterday. Firstly I love receiving surprise packages don't you? And secondly it contained a beautiful interior coffee table book called Modern Rustic (pictures here)- double happy! Today's home tour of a newly renovated Gothenburg apartment is anything but modern rustic, but it is lovely all the same. There's no stopping the black kitchen cabinets right now, it's definitely the hottest design trend in Scandinavia right now, that I see anyway?! Enjoy the tour....









Alvhem

A few items I recognise: String shelves, Tripp Trapp chair, Eames side chair and Elihu the Elephant clock. Muuto shelving, Eames house bird, IKEA striped Stockholm rug

Anything you love in particular about this home?

One hundred and three Scandinavian inspired black and white home tours here, you're welcome!
