it’s hard to believe it has been seven years since i first posted this townhouse project by eliding & oscarson architects. seven years have been passed by and it is still my all time favorite. i just want to copy everything for my future home (somewhere, someday). it really worth another shout-out after seven years. check it out here.

throw-back Friday

oh, october

it is hard to believe we’re now arriving at the month of october, the last quarter of 2016. didn’t we just pop the champagne and say hello to 2016?? crazy. and i am so excited to finally have some time to be back to the blogsphere.

here is a gorgeous apartment for sale (and sold!) from goteborg, sweden. subway tile with darker grout creates a sharper definition in this very light tone kitchen… and that white and gold hardware  combination is just so irresistibly good.

✚ spotted this handy shoe storage ‘trines’ by ikea. the volume of black has a perfect weight in this mostly white interior…

i can move in here… light wood & rusty coral

i haven’t really seen any project recently that would trigger the “i can move in here” button. and here we go – this AMAZING property in uppsala, sweden ( uppsala is the fourth largest city of sweden, after stockholm, gothenburg and malmö ) is beyond the dream: very crisp interior style with shades of nude and rusty coral color scheme. the layout of the house is simple and efficient. the vintage modern style is still the winning secret ingredient for a chic, modern home.

i am having two subjects in one post today.

remember the virtual monday post? that’s right, the realization of the project looks JUST LIKE the rendering, in good way! the marble countertop/backsplash with brass trim, framed by black cabinets with brass hardwares… minimal yet rich in materiality, michitecture’s #1 design mantra.

and remember the atrium house by tham & videgård arkitekter featured back in 2012?  stockholm-based architecture office TVARK’s book looks perfect in one of the HG7 project, packhuset. you can look inside the book here via idea books.nl (which offers really awesome book preview). buy the book from amazon(US).

happy sunday!

sunday open house: a cozy scandinavian home

a cozy (and quite spacious- 4 rooms!) apartment with simple white interior and warm wood materials (chairs, tables, floor). my favorite corner is  around the dining table – the two pendant lights are lovely, and here we spotted the stokke highchair again. i can totally see myself using the dining table as work table & reading etc.

also it is true: bertois side chairs just can make any room look instantly modern& chic.

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.
