current obsession: fife-based scottish design studio tom pigeon‘s  foiled prints. minimal graphic with lux foil touch ( and hand printed in UK)… as the designers described “a nod to glamorous 80’s beach parties”.

oh yeah, summer days.

happy monday!

love the refreshing combination of two shades of blue kitchen cabinets with gold/brass and leather material. together with the backdrop of simple square subway tile (only tiled 3/4 of the wall) and marble countertop – such a beautiful modern take of farmhouse palate.

a spacious apartment for sale in göteborg, sweden. my favorite detail is that gold handle and the marble countertop! ( and this is probably the N+1 time i am saying it) these handles are so minimal & elegant. LOVE it.

marble countertop makes a nice material connection in this interior from kitchen to bathroom, as well as the gold hardware. people have warned me that using gold hardware is not practical, i will eventually get tired of looking at them… is that true?

this is definitely my favorite time of the year… taking a break from the hectic work schedule, spending time with family, cooking yummy food, plus candle lights and cozy blanket…

love the contrast between crisp white interior and textured textile with little bit hint of gold accessories in this cozy apartment from göteborg, sweden.
