I love a good to go cup when I’m on the way to an early meeting in the morning, or when I’m going out for a walk by the Isar river in Munich. Especially now that it’s not that warm yet outside, it’s so much nicer to have a hot drink with you.
I got to try out the new Eva Solo to go cup*, which has a gorgeous matt black finish (like the rest of their nordic kitchen series) and can be used for both coffee and tea. As I drink coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon, this is such a perfect and versatile product for me. The cup comes with a built in tea filter, which you can leave out when you use it for coffee. Now all I have to do is get some more loose tea. I have a good selection of green tea from my trip to Japan, but do you have any recommendations for a good herbal tea ?
These days the interior world seems to be all about tone on tone beige and greige looks, which I’m very fond of, but somehow it’s quite refreshing to see a black and white interior these days (remember a few years back when it was all we saw in Scandinavian interiors ?)
This black and white dining room look works very nicely combined with the wood of the flooring, shelves and the hand carved bowl on the table. The black chairs combined with the white Ikea table work very nicely with the wood while as the Chrome semi pendant from Gubi* combined with the fresh cut flowers make this look more crisp.
The details on the doors are really nice as well. The glass panels add a very nice texture to the otherwise white walls and doors.

I always have so many things laying around on my desk (more then in the pictures, I cleaned up to make these images) and have been using this HAY color crate* to keep my essential things that I always need close by.
These crates come in many different colors and sizes and I have bought three of them so far to keep my home organised. They have a very simple design, yet the color makes them special and they are so cheap as well, a perfect way to organise my things in style.
I think having a room solely for the purpose of dining is already a luxury today. In a smaller city apartment you just can’t afford to have a room only for this and usually the dining table becomes part of the kitchen or living room. This room looks very impressive nevertheless and I love the massive art wall that has been created over the entire width of the space.
The dining table itself is the HAY loop stand table*, which combines so nicely with the black Thonet bentwood chairs*. I love the grasses as well which are spread over the three vases, which give the room a subtile spring look. I’m not at all tired of the pampas and grass trend, are you ?

Even though the pink walls in this gorgeous living room are more of a beige tone and pretty muted, I still think it’s quite a daring color and you have to be slightly brave. It looks absolutely impressive in this home though ! The overall look of this room is very warm and inviting, yet still very light, fresh and airy.
The art wall in tints of beige stands out very nicely against the nude pink walls and is combined for a warmer look with an Ikea sofa customised with a warm grey linen Bemz slip cover*. The white linen pillow covers (which you can buy here* for example) really stand out in this look as well.
The beige area rug (which is the Kolong rug from Urbanara*) makes the entire look a lit lighter and adds a bit more texture to the room. The overall color palette works so nicely in this room. I admire people that dare to work with color and I wish I was more brave to experiment with it as well.

Curtains are still missing here, but this is my favorite corner in my living room currently. I love changing the decor on the side table here and this area just gets so much sunlight it’s also where my plants work nicely.
This living room looks both fresh and moody at the same time, which is the sweet spot if you ask me, yet so difficult to achieve. The wall to wall and ceiling to floor curtains help a lot with achieving this look and dimming the sunlight a little. The fabric sofa and area rug give the room a very soft look and the lighter furniture pieces combined with green plants add a fresh touch to the space.
The round dining table with the CH24 wishbone chairs in black* on the other side of the room work very nicely there as well and I love the addition of the art piece against the wall which adds a subtile touch of color.

Everything comes together so nicely in this small dining table corner. The vintage table and chairs, the fresh flowers, the art wall and the antique candle holder – all such characterful items that make this place interesting.
You can’t see it very well in these images, but a carpet was placed underneath the table as well, which creates the illusion that the table has it’s own area in the kitchen and it must be so soft when you have your coffee in the morning as well.

Having a coffee addiction is something I need to work on (at least to reduce the amount to just two cups would be nice) but it does give me the oportunity to shop for the cutest coffee essentials like this cute HAY porcelain cup and saucer*. I love collecting coffee cups and really enjoy drinking my coffee in something different every day. It makes drinking a hot beverage more like a ritual and something to really enjoy.
