apartment love

I really fell for this amazing redesigned small apartment (34 m2)
  in the old city of Barcelona (Born-district) 
with its beautiful stairs made of a combined construction, 
consisting steel elements fixed to the wall 
and a number of wooden steps
 integrated in the storage/living room at the base 
to make full use of the limited space

beautiful whites combined with wood and stunning minimalistic styling
see more here and have a great day!

Broste copenhagen AW2014 -

I know that summer has just started 
but the beautiful natural tones  
of the Broste copenhagen Autumn/Winter 2014 collection
and the amazing warm atmosphere - love the grey/blue shades 
created by stylist Nathalie Schwer and photographer Line Thit Klein  
really made me smile...

Have a wonderful new week!

                                                                                                              found via Svenngaarden with thanks!  


tine K home - dust

black, white, grey and a lot of pink tones
so beautiful...

starting my weekend with some images of  
the Tine K home AW/2014 DUST collection
amazing styling as always and another very inspiring location
you can find all about the new collection here

Have a fabulous weekend! 



Extra storage always seems to be needed and 
from the moment that I saw this stylish side table (lóóve the styling)
 - witch can be used for in- and outdoor purposes -
 it became one of my latest Ikea favorites 

 workbench Olofstorp is designed by Marcus Arvonen 
and made of solid pine, molded plywood and stain
The table top can be folded out to make the table larger 
just perfect in the kitchen
- with the cupboard and a drawer for cookware and other small items -
or in the garden for some extra pottingworkspace
