Loving the subtle use of golden accents in these interiors.

Weekend warmers: Yellow

It's a colour I have never really liked in interiors before, but lately I have had an absolute obsession with yellow. It has to be just a small hit of mustard yellow, and I love it together with grey or black.

This is me

As part of the October challenge over on Design Refuge I have tried to define what my style is and I have come up with this: Scandinavian eclectic with the occasional hit of colour. Cosy textiles and warm woods. A mix of design classics, treasured family heirlooms, flea-market finds and IKEA.
And of course, every home needs a cat.

Lonny magazine

These stunning and luxurious interiors are from Lonny, a bimonthly online magazine focusing on lifestyle and home decor. Available for free online, the magazine is an absolute feast of extraordinary interiors and beautiful photography. Take a look!

British made: Another Country

These lovely oak pieces are hand made by Another Country, a small Dorset based furniture company. This is their first collection, drawing inspiration from a mix of British Country, Shaker, Scandinavian and Japanese woodwork. They also work to strict environmentally friendly principles, using FSC certified wood, natural latex mattresses and organic lambswool from farms in Devon and Dorset. I like companies who care about green matters. My personal favorite is the daybed in the image above. So simple, so pretty.
