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.

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.

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.

Melbourne apartment build like if it were a house

I especially like the textures and colors in the living room.  Notice that the ceilings and walls are partially concrete, which usually causes a cold feeling, but by pairing the right colors, fabrics and textures, it looks very warm and inviting.

Dit mooie appartement werd gerealiseerd door Neometro (een aannemer uit Melbourne) om een oplossing te bieden voor mensen die van een huis naar een appartement verhuizen, zonder daarvoor te moeten inboeten aan comfort. Ik vind vooral de kleuren en texturen in de living mooi. De plafonds en muren zijn namelijk uit beton gemaakt, wat meestal voor een koude indruk zorgt. Hier daarintegen zijn net de juiste stoffen, texturen en kleuren gebruikt om de ruimte er warm en uitnodigend te laten uitzien.

This project is a collaboration between Neometro, Carr Design and MA Architects, with styling by Nina Provan and pictures by Derek Swalwell.

Even though grey and black walls are making their appearance on this blog more and more, I’m still a big fan of  a light home with neutral colors as well. I like how the plants get all the attention in the living room.

And by the way: today is the last day you can get your chance in winning a String Pocket shelf. Tomorrow the winners will be announced.

Hoewel zwarte en grijze meer en meer een intrede hebben gemaakt op mijn blog, ben ik nog altijd een grote fan van een lichte woning met neutrale kleuren. Ik vind het mooi hoe de plantjes zoveel aandacht krijgen in de living.

En by the way: vandaag is het de laatste kans om nog mee te doen aan de giveaway om een String Pocket schabje te winnen in je favoriete kleur. Morgen worden de winnars bekend gemaakt.

Tall flat with two levels

post

Tall flat with two levels - via cocolapinedesign.comTall flat with two levels - via cocolapinedesign.comTall flat with two levels - via cocolapinedesign.comTall flat with two levels - via cocolapinedesign.com Tall flat with two levels - via cocolapinedesign.com Tall flat with two levels - via cocolapinedesign.comThis is such a great space. The ceilings and windows are so high that the owners made a bedroom under the ceiling with the kitchen below. The colors are kept neutral, which I really like and the windows reflect so beautifully in the big frames on the wall.

Dit vind ik zo’n mooie ruimte. De plafonds zijn zo hoog dat de bewoners de mogelijkheid hadden om een slaapkamer in de nok van het dak te bouwen met daaronder de keuken. De kleuren zijn neutraal gehouden, wat ik heel mooi vind en de ramen reflecteren zo mooi in de grote kaders aan de muur.
