Cozy bedroom in green and grey

post

I think this bedroom looks so fresh and cozy. The light grey walls give a very soft effect to the room and the green duvet cover adds a bit of life. I like the two Vipp wall lamps on each side of the bed as well, the black brushed metal contrasts very nicely with the grey.

I like the little rustic style bench by the end of the bed as well and love the clothes rail on the wall to display your favorite pieces (your pieces would need to match your interior, but I guess that’s usually the case anyways).

    A serene home in grey and beige

    post

    Grey, beige, black and natural materials are all that is needed to make this home a cozy, calm and serene space. Every area is marked by a series of art prints on the wall, which is a very creative way of dividing a space (where the art wall stops e.g. the living room wall stops and the dining room wall starts).

    The big fiddle fig tree and the large beige area rug in front of the window in the living room make this space very inviting and the Series 7 and ant chairs in a natural version (both from Fritz Hansen) add a warm hue to the dining room and kitchen. Lastly I’m in love with the combo of the chrome floor lamp, the beige art print and the grey wall in the bedroom. I think this palette works so well there.

    Living room transformation with Bemz

    post

    When designing a home for yourself, you have to take the time and think about what works in the space, but also get to know your own taste and try out different things that make you feel comfortable. After two years of living in this apartment, I feel like most rooms are coming together by now, but the living room was always the hardest room to work with. I’m very happy with the turn of the century ceiling painting that was kept intact and I think it’s absolutely beautiful, but it also makes it more difficult to decorate this room.

    I recently started introducing tints of beige and grey into the living room and added a warmer beige tint of curtains to the windows. I really loved the warm touch these items gave the total look and decided to paint the living room wall in a very warm light grey to match the other grey and beige items that I think work so nicely in this room. This color works great with the warm tints of painted ceiling as well.

    Those of you who follow me on Instagram might have noticed that I recently changed our old sofa with an Ikea Söderhamn 3 seater customised with a Bemz Loose Fit cover in in a dark grey linen, also shown in the last three pictures of this blogpost. I really like this change, as the old sofa was just too big for this long and narrow room. Bemz makes custom covers for IKEA furniture with loads of high end fabrics to completely transform your IKEA furniture to reflect your own style.

    After painting the wall and introducing some more beige items, I decided to also update the sofa to match this lighter and warmer color scheme. After placing an order for a few fabric samples to get a feeling for the color and fabric texture, chose a cover in Silver Grey Simply Linen. I love to have the option to change the look of the sofa and to be able to wash the cover when needed.

    While usually people go for darker colors when the colder months are about to arrive, I feel like this change into a lighter, yet warmer and tone-on-tone color palette looks more soft and cozy. It’s a true pleasure to cuddle up in this corner now that the evenings are getting darker and colder and I finally feel like the look of this room is coming together.

    Getting to know what works for you and your home is a slow process and you can learn a lot by changing small things like pillows, blankets, prints and small accessories. Being able to change the cover of a sofa is such an easy way to give a room an update or refresh. I’m someone that likes to change things around at home constantly and love that I can now switch between the two covers and possibly new fabrics to keep updating this look.

    Which look do you prefer? The regular fitting sofa cover or the relaxed aesthetic of loose fit linen cover? Bemz is giving all Coco Lapine Design readers a 20% discount with the code ’20cocolapine’ starting now until November 18th, so if you are thinking about upgrading your Ikea sofa, now might be the perfect time !

    This blogpost was created in collaboration with Bemz Design, however all opinions are my own of course.

    Kamut Art print in the bedroom

    post

    I’m still on a rather light color palette in the bedroom, even though the weather is changing. Maybe this is me fighting the days getting shorter, I’m not sure, but I’m just going with it. I placed my Kamut Art print to match this lighter palette as well. Maybe soon I will make everything darker again, who knows.

    By Lassen AW18

    post

    These are the new catalog images for the autumn-winter collection of By Lassen. These clean and stylish images really bring out the straight lines of the accessories and furniture. My favorite piece of the new collection is the Roll’in kitchen paper holder.

    Mogens Lassen’s grandson Søren Lassen designed Roll’in as a gift for his mother Elin’s 75th birthday. The Lassen family’s much-loved tradition of dining outside whenever the weather permitted called for a kitchen roll holder that could stand up to gusts of wind, whilst also fitting in with the impeccable by Lassen design aesthetic.

    Spacious loft in a former backery

    post

    This spacious loft is located in an old bakery and has these beautifully renovated black factory windows. The big black kitchen really feels like the centre of the home and is adjacent to the living room, where I’m most drawn to the art wall with the two fabric lounge chairs.

    I think a loft home can sometimes feel a little cold (or too industrial for my taste), but because of the soft wooden flooring, this home looks very cozy and inviting.

    Cozy dark grey kitchen

    post

    I like the high contrast look of this big and high-end kitchen. The white marble on the countertops and backsplash really stands out against the dark grey cabinet doors and since the cabinets go all the way up to the ceiling, you get a very spacious looking room.

    I like the wooden dining table with the black chairs in front of the window as well. The wood is slightly different from the herringbone floors, which is an interesting combination.

    Cozy one room apartment

    post

    Yesterday I showed you a majestic apartment in Stockholm, which was very inspiring, but I find it just as inspiring to see a cozy one room apartment that is decorated in a smart way so it feels spacious and cozy.

    I like the warm grey color on the wall combined with the soft and light hardwood flooring. Textiles like the polka dot pillow or the striped blanket on the bed really stand out in this space and the green plants make it so fresh as well.

    Majestic Stockholm apartment

    post

    This is a totally different level of interior decoration of what I usually post on here. I usually am more drawn to a cozy and inviting interior, but this majestic decor is so inspiring to me as well (though less achievable of course). I love the use of textiles throughout the home: ceiling to floor curtains, large area rugs, sheepskins and many pillows.

    The kitchen looks absolutely amazing with the white marble counter tops, but my favorite element is the small round table with the flowers in the hallway. This is something you only see in truly big homes of course (who has the space really), but it looks so nice on that black and white floor.

    Pale green bedroom

    post

    Look at this beautiful pale green bedroom peaking through these historical wing doors from the living room. The walls are painted in a warm grey, but combined with the green and ochre bedding the bedroom has a green look. I love the big fiddle fig tree in the bedroom corner and the little desk against the wall.
