Angles from Annabelle's home

Thursday, 20 November 2014

It's amazing how much inspiration you can get from zooming into selected areas of a home. Take this barn conversion recently featured on Design Sponge as an example. It belongs to Anabelle Kerslake. co-founder of fete magazine, and her family in Balhannah in the Adelaide Hills, South Australia. The pair have carried out extensive renovations and decorated the space using an eclectic mix of styles. French antiques rub shoulders with Danish mid-century items from her sister and brother-in-laws shop, while industrial and romantic florals also play a part in the overall look. Anabelle's rule has been if she loves it, she buys it. A rule close to my own heart.

What do you think of this eclectic style? Anything that stands out to you in particular?

For more eclectic home inspiration it's worth taking a peek at this and this one.

Mid-century (as you know) is one of my favourite styles (I'm sure you've seen my drinks trolley and coffee table!), you only have to take a look through the 30 'mid-century modern' home tours I've squirreled away! To source fab mid-century items try Lauritz, e-bay, Etsy or LiveAuctioneers. 

Have a wonderful day! 


A white Swedish apartment with an interesting míx

Wednesday, 19 November 2014

Hello! It's yet another grey day here in Sweden (apparently this is the darkest November on record!). Sometimes I love a little bleakness (really, I do!), but today I have a photo shoot and the lack of light will be a challenge. So, I'm in need of another home to brighten up my day, how about you?! I think this Swedish apartment fits the bill!  I love the natural light and the unusual mix of styles. The chair and lamp in the corner of the sitting room look great next to the contemporary pendant light and coffee table. And I love the addition of all the plants and flowers.   








ENTRANCE

What do you like the most about this space?

One of my most coveted items right now is a round vase like the one you see on the dining table. Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton's also a fan - there's one on the table of the home she styled here. I love the glassware in her own home too.

If you're feeling inspired by natural light today (yes, I'm obsessed!) I love thisthis, and this home. Otherwise there's always mirrors like in this wonderful apartment, or candles like in this cosy Finnish dining setting.

I got a mail from my friends at Dutch company Oh My Home this morning telling me about their new ceramics line - and I had to share the link, the items are so beautiful! I'm a big fan of their posters too - the 'Whale all be fine' and sleeping Polar Bear ones would be so cute in a children's room. A little mid-week shopping therapy!

Have a lovely day! 


The monochrome space of Annie Lindgren

Tuesday, 18 November 2014

Morning! It's soooo grey here in Southern Sweden, it's going to be one of those days when the lights need to be on all day. Is it the same where you are? Rather than fight it, I thought I'd embrace it. So here's the oh so beautiful Swedish apartment belonging to blogger and shop owner, Annie Lindgren of All is Pretty,  recently featured in Plaza magazine. Void of colour.  The space is the epitome of today's Swedish decor trend (in my mind anyway): graphical, monochrome and teeming with the latest wall covering must have: fashion photography. Who needs bright sunshine and colour anyway?!







Home: Annie Lindgren, Styling: Pella Hedeby. Photographer: Kristofer Johnsson (with kind permission). 

What a great space?! Anything you love about it in particular?

I've been having a look around the web to find the best black and white fashion photography prints and found this and this site, Can you suggest any others? 

Items I know and love from Annie's home: Cross blanket, Knoll Diamond chair and Tulip dining table. Similar prints to the Andy Warhol quote (by the bed) available on etsy. AJ Table lamp. Linen bedding. Some of the items you see can also be found in Annie's shop

Have a lovely day!
