Tiger velvet

ON MY MIND


I've been talking a lot lately of color setting with neutrals and have applied a lot of that color scheme at home, I'll show you all soon. When using similar colors within the same range, I like to add colors of accent both in order to make a transition between black and white less sharp but also to in hence contrast when using similar tones of a certain color. My favorite accent colors right know is yellow, not a bright version but more of a subtle tone, like mustard or like the base of my still favorite fabric, the tiger velvet below. I also really like accents of blue and green.  

WISHFUL THINKING AND DAYDREAMING...


Hi guys, it´s Friday, the sun is shining and I just got home after a work out. Life is good! As you already know our apartment is up for sale and we just bought a new one, situated in a more luscious and green part of the city than where we are now. Can´t wait to start the renovation of the new place. Which is really necessary, there has been practically no work done in that apartment since the house was built in the early 30´s. So there is a lot to do but also a lot of original features preserved that I love. I just started making a wishlist over all the things I would love to get for this apartment...

I´ve been in love with these Superleggera chairs designed by the late genius Gio Ponti for as long as I can remember. Maybe now is the time to make that investment...

These cabinets from Lidhults has been on my mind for the last couple of weeks. Traditional, yet modern. Timeless. I´m not sure about the knobs though...

Have this idea of keeping it pretty simple in the bathrooms. White glossy tiles in standard sizing for the walls and carrera marble tiles on the floor. Maybe some marble mosaic in the shower area. Used the hexagon mosaic for the apartment we´re now and really like the look and feel of those, so maybe I just go for those again. 

Have been going back and forth on these tiger velvet cushions. Couldn´t really decide if they were a bit too much or a must have. And I think I need to have these.... I´ll let you know what I decide. Have to go now, running late for a photo shoot of these lovely pieces.

Happy Friday all!


SWEET DREAMS



I´m in the making of an mood board for our master bedroom. coming acros alot of gorgeous and slightly extravagant bedrooms. I´m not sure I would go with the mix and match of prints as in this vouluptous bedroom from an issue of Veranda. Don´t get me wrong, I love the colours, the patterned wall paper and the striped head board (I might be ready for a red room), but I´m not sure this would work for our master bedroom, maybe a guest room. The wall lamps, I would really like to have though...

I love this mix of the tiger velvet stools, the Antilope patterned carpet and the red lantern lamp, yes, I definitely need something red at home...

But one thing all images I´ve saved for my mood board have in common are the monogrammed bed linens. What do you think, should I go for personalized pillow cases?
