Design to Die for…

Just a series of gorgeous rooms that took my eye . They seem to have a common theme of pops of colour and texture against a white or neutral back drop.

Swedish Style

I found this crisp, fresh and absolutely fabulous apartment whilst browsing the web I want to share with you . I just love the clean lines, modernist touches and pops of colour. The home is in Sweden and I think it definitely echoes this through the choice of furniture and accessories. Modern-living-space swedish

Gorgeous yellow pendant light , amazing accent chair and yes, I know we have all seen that wall paper before, but it is just right in this space.


The view of the living room from the other angle – featuring this beautiful modernist timber buffet. Also love the quirky ladder and the casual placement of artwork …

Fresh, open kitchen, the gloss white floors through out definitely do their job af giving an open and large feel to the apartment. Once again a pop of colour, this time Pink , is just enough. Simple and fabulous!

hall-used-as-study sweish

The hall way doubles as a study nook as well. Dramatic black and white runner tied in with the black gloss bench seat – with the black and white flowing through to the bedroom ahead – a clever use of space.


Main bedroom- almost a touch masculine with the black and white check.The strong metal bedsides lamps and original striped bedhead all work beautifully together. The gloss white floor continues throughout.


Compact, clever storage for the children’s bedroom, easy care and clutter free.


The smokey grey bathroom tiles and modern bathroom storage give the bathroom and warm, earthy feel, but still retains that modern feeling.

This home is a stunning, yet simple one. Clean, Crisp and fresh.

Till next time
