I hope you are all having a wonderfully slow and chill Spring Forward Sunday. We sure are at my house and I just love these weekend days when there are no has to's and we just take the day as it comes.
Just in case you are trying to come up with one more reason to stay in your PJs a bit longer, I thought I would share this lovely jugend home with you. It's a super stylish home where all the details are thought through with respect of the history of the house, but not without a sense of humor and modern aspirations. All the pictures are from Lundins Fastighetsbyra.
This is a very fun house, full of little surprises. Every time I look at these images I discover something new. There is a lot to remind us that the house itself has been around for a long time, such as the wooden beams you can see as you peek down from the loft in the living room upstairs, and the raw wood on the walls. Personally I love using those kinds of details as a backdrop for modern art and furniture like they do here.
Here in the sitting area by the kitchen there's a cute built in china cabinet made from an old window. And isn't that photo art next to it fun?! Same girl, different facial expressions on each picture. Really shows the life that fills the home!
Dining area with lots and lots of windows, and those are my favorite chairs!
Clean lines in the kitchen and simple white tiles that are spruced up with dry erase markers I believe. What a great way to break the mold and be able to change things up easily! I am also a big fan of the banners with letters and flags that you see all around the house. It really helps to bring fun and personality while keeping to a calm color palette.
Exposed brick bring needed warmth here with all the white.
See that cute outdoor lantern on the interior brick wall..that makes me smile. And that collection of nesting dolls is perfect on that shelf in the stairs. Fun details like that with bright colors break up the strict colors and design language in for example the desk space under the stairs.
The visible ceiling beams make themselves useful as the perfect spot for a swing chair in the middle of the family room. And again..those windows! They let so much light and greenery in..and imagine lying in that couch at night watching the stars..just perfect.
Overlooking the family room is this loft. It's used as a guest bedroom. How gorgeous are those damejeannes against the emerald green walls?!
The bedroom is restful in its shades of grey. The aged black and white prints ensure it doesn't get too black and white and square.
Lastly, this naturally protected outdoor space not only shelters against cold winds in the spring and summer, but in the fall those stone walls store up warmth to make the late nights a touch more comfortable. Also, can you imagine how much fun it would be for a kid to climb and play here?
I personally love homes like this that are full of surprises and little quirks. I'd love to hear your thoughts on a home like this? Love, Like or Meh?
