This is the new ‘Framed’ mirror Muuto recently released designed by Anderssen & Voll. They created a mirror which can just as well hang in the living room as in the bedroom or kitchen. It looks good alone as well as grouped together with another mirror or an art piece. My favorite is the copper one.

I like the lightness of this place a lot. Small spaces like this will look way more spacious when everything is kept in light colors, especially the walls. I’m very tempted to paint a wall in our apartment grey (or maybe I’m more courages and pick petrol blue or dark green?) but always think it might make our place look smaller. Maybe one day I’ll go for it, but looking at this place, it doesn’t seem bad at all to keep them white for a little while longer.

Our kitchen

As promised in Tuesdays blogpost, here are some more pictures of our new kitchen. There are a few details left to be finished, but we can already make dinner and eat it at the kitchen table which I’m enjoying so much.

We chose a basic Ikea kitchen base, which we upgraded with the holy wafer handles in brass from Superfront. I knew for a really long time already that if I would ever build a kitchen I would like to use those handles and I’m really happy with the result. I like how they pop out against the grey and black of the fronts and worktop. I love the possibilities Superfront offers to upgrade Ikea cabinets and kitchens and takes a basic Ikea kitchen to something special and noteworthy.

We live in an old building that was renovated before we moved in and in the kitchen there is still an original built in closet. This gave us a lot of storage space already, which is why we chose to only build lower cabinets on both sides of the room. I like how light this looks, even though there is a big black surface on top of the cabinets. Now I still need to find an exhaust solution and a backdrop and then this project is all done. Any ideas ?

Salmon walls

post

‘Look at this beautiful apartment with salmon walls’ – is a sentence I thought I would never say in my life, but seriously look at this place ! This color works perfectly here and is combined with exactly the right details to make it pop. The hallway is painted in a dark grey, which works well with all the windows and brings you to the light grey kitchen / living area.

Vipp wall lamp

post

Vipp wall lamp - via cocolapinedesign.com Vipp wall lamp - via cocolapinedesign.comVipp wall lamp - via cocolapinedesign.comVipp wall lamp - via cocolapinedesign.comVipp wall lamp - via cocolapinedesign.com Vipp wall lamp - via cocolapinedesign.comAfter two months of eating takeout and going to restaurants (that last one wasn’t too bad to be honest), we are finally adding the last touches to our kitchen. I’ll show you pictures of the actual kitchen later this week, but I wanted to show you our dining area already today.

I’m so happy to have our dinner table in the kitchen in our new place. The table and chairs are the ones we had in Berlin as well, but I added the beautiful Vipp wall lamp to the setting which gives it a whole new look. I think the black powder-coated aluminium contrasts so nicely against the white and wood tints of the table, chairs and old flooring and I like how you can point the lamp to wherever you need. The light source itself is LED, which is diffused by a frosted glass for a very soft light. When the light is on the perforations on the outside of the lamp get lit up as well, which is a very nice design detail. You can find more details about the lamp on the Vipp website, and more pictures on my Snapchat: sarahcocolapine

Home in grey

Another beautiful example of a home with lots and lots of grey. The bedroom wall is painted in a warm dark grey, which makes the room look very peaceful and relaxing. In the living room and kitchen you can find so many nice grey (and black) details, which tie together the entire look of the apartment.

I like the details in this small home a lot. The walls are painted in a very light grey, which brings puts the natural colors and brass tints in a very soft light. Even though this is a rather small space, it still looks quite spacious by reducing the amount and size of furniture used.

Black and white floors

post

I like the contrast of the all white living room and kitchen combined with the black floor in the bedroom and hallway. The living room looks very crisp and has strong black accents, while the bedroom looks a bit more rough with a soft touch of the beige bedding and accents. Especially the line between the hallway and kitchen, where black meets white is interesting I think.
