It’s so subtle, yet so powerful. Also, the brass magazine holders on the wall are really cool, does anybody know where they are from ? I like how organized it makes the magazines look in their little rolls.

Days are getting shorter, which means there isn’t so much sunlight in our home anymore. I like the effect of the different woods in this apartment. The wood almost looks golden in this light.

De dagen worden korter, waardoor daglicht eerder schaars is en we het thuis gezellig moeten maken. Ik vind het effect van de verschillende houtsoorten in dit appartement heel mooi. Het hout lijkt wel goud in dit licht.

Love this styling by Tina Hellberg. She combined neutral colors in front of a black wall in the living room and made the bedroom very soft with a touch of pink. This cool space was also styled by Michael Beckman and Hans Blomquist, which resulted in two completely different looks.

Ik vind deze styling gedaan door Tina Hellberg heel mooi. Ze heeft neutrale kleuren gecombineerd voor een pikzwarte muur in de leefruimte en deed de slaapkamer daarintegen er heel zacht uitzien. Hetzelfde appartement werd ook gestyled door Michael Beckman en Hans Blomquist, wat resulteerde in een compleet andere look.

Classic and mid-century modern combined into a cozy Swedish home

There are many classic elements to be found, combined with mid-century modern pieces. The color scheme is kept very neutral, which makes you notice these treasures even more. The wooden floors seam to be painted in a  glossy light grey, which makes the white furniture stand out and I also really like the big window in the living room.

Ik vind het mooi hoe gezellig deze woning eruit ziet. Er zijn veel klassieke elementen te vinden in deze woning, gecombineerd met vintage stukken. Het kleuren pallet is neutraal gebleven, wat de mooie design stukken er heel goed doet uitkomen. De houten vloeren zijn in een glossy, licht grijze kleur geschilderd, wat heel mooi contrasteert met de klassieke witte meubelen en ik vind ook het grote raam in de living heel mooi.

Last week I styled this beautiful turn of the century apartment for Fantastic Frank in Berlin. The place was very light and the original ceiling ornaments were all preserved. The walls had this very light grey color that reflected the light coming from the big old windows and the living room had this darker grey module which could be used as a built in closet.

I had the opportunity to work together with Berlin based design company New Tendency for this project. There designs have a very clear aesthetic and functional form, which contrasted very nicely with the delicate ornaments and the white waxed floors of the flat. In both the kitchen and the living room you can see their iconic Meta side table, which with it’s versatile design can be used in the living or bedroom (or in this case also in a niche in the wall where normally a fridge should go).

The sleek silhouette of the Black Masa table in the kitchen went very nicely with the &Tradition chairs and in the both rooms you can see a Shift shelving system which consist out of modular elements. They can be stacked on top of each other without screws and moved horizontally. On the shift shelf in the kitchen you can see the Plug Lamp by Atelje Lyktan and above that the Paris elevations print by Studio Esinam. Staying in the french theme, in the living room I hung up a vintage map of France and used the Meta side table as a bar. On the chair you can see a Mountain pillow, made by Berlin based Icelandic design couple Markrun, who are by the way giving away a set of mountain pillows on their Facebook page if you are interested.

The Teesta rug in the living room and the blanket on the sofa are from Urbanara and are now making my living room cozy and ready for winter. On the ceiling you can see the Bergmann light fixture, which I also used in this bedroom styling and the desk is made from the beautiful Normann Copenhagen buk legs. I love the way they look in combination with the vintage chair and the white floor.

Warm knits and textures in my living room: I’m all ready for winter.

My winter favorites: Vida hanging lamp –  Onuma rice cupsKarby wool blanketKinna flower potVida brass table lampAlashan pillowSabarmati pillow –  Teesta rug

This weekend it became clear, very clear: the winter is coming to Berlin and temperatures lowered already. I’m not quite used to it yet, but I’m looking forward to these cosy times with tea, wool socks and cuddly blankets. So when online market place Urbanara asked me if I wanted to try out some of my winter favourites from their collection, I immediately became all excited about winter and all its coziness.

Their collection consists out of a wide range of quality home accessoires produced over the entire world out of the best materials and traditional processes. By offering the products straight to their customers, without third party suppliers, they are able to offer high quality products within an accessible price range. My favourites for this winter are a mix of soft textures, brass, greys and blues. I’m really into blue lately and I like how it breaks the grey winter feeling a little.

In my own living room you can see the Teesta rug in light grey, which gives the room a perfect soft touch. I like that it’s wool, warm and cozy, but it’s short and easy to clean. The different tints of grey of the sofa, coffee table and rug look nice together I think. On the coffee table you can see a hint of blue of the Onuma rice cups, combined with a brass flower pot and lastly for ultimate coziness there is the Danish Karby wool blanket waiting for me to cuddle under. I feel so ready for winter now.

Dit weekend werd het duidelijk, heel duidelijk zelfs: de Berlijnse winter komt eraan en de temperaturen zijn al serieus gezakt. Ik ben er nog niet helemaal aan gewoon, maar ik kijk al uit naar de gezellige tijden met een kopje thee, warme wollen sokken en een warm dekentje. Wanneer online marktplaats Urbanara me dus vroeg mijn favoriete winter stukken uit te zoeken uit hun collectie, werd ik natuurlijk helemaal enthousiast over de winter en al de gezelligheid die daarbij hoort.

Hun collectie bestaat uit een groot gamma van kwaliteits accessoires die geproduceerd worden over de hele wereld met de beste materialen en traditionele processen met een oog voor detail. Door de producten direct aan de consument te leveren, hebben ze de mogelijkheid kwaliteitsproducten aan te bieden voor acceptabele prijzen. Mijn favorieten voor deze winter zijn een mix van zachte texturen, metaal, grijs en blauw. Ik ben helemaal fan van blauw de laatste tijd en ik vind het mooi hoe dit het grijze winter gevoel wat breekt.

In mijn eigen living kan je het Teesta tapijt zien in licht grijs, wat de ruimte er perfect zacht doet uitzien. Ik vind de wol mooi, warm en gezellig, maar doordat het een kort tapijt is is het toch makkelijk schoon te houden. De verschillende tinten grijs van de sofa, het tapijt en de koffie tafel gaan goed samen vind ik. Op de salon tafel  zie je een tint blauw van de Onuma rice cups, gecombineerd met een gouden planten pot en op de zetel zie je het zachte wollen Karby deken dat op mijn wacht. Ik ben helemaal klaar voor de winter nu.
