With a warm and intense cheer we welcome the dark green and blue colours back inside our interiors! I was never a big fan of blue walls or dark interiors.. but I’ve changed my mind. Turned it around 180 degrees. Now here’s why.. I’ve learned there’s a big difference between the use of bright blue and green and dark natural tones. Indeed ‘natural’ tones are the key. By using these against your walls, floor, ceiling etc you create a neutral base and it’s still possible to make the room feel fresh and cheerfull. Put some different tones or contrast colours next to it and you’ll be surprised of the outcome. Colours like mustard green, gold, pink and red will come to live when placed next to a base like this. A romantic, rich but calm atmosphere will be created by using textures like velvet, cognac coloured leather, retro wooden furniture, shiny gold objects, peacock feathers and plants. It will carry the whole room to the next level.

You could maybe compare it to the bottom-layer of the jungle, which has an intense and diverse pallet of greens. Velvet soft moss, plants and trees, shadow’s and sunlight form a base. Bright coloured animals like birds and tropical flowers turn this into one of the most glorious places on earth. How about turning our interior into a place that looks and feels glorious like that?!

I’ve selected a bunch of images that will make you love the use of dark green and blue shades in your home for sure as well!

Mixed chairs around the dining table. A thing we’ve seen happening for years now in many homes.. and guess what, I think we can keep doing that for a while if we want. At least I’m not done with it for sure. Here’s why it’s so fun, starting with the amount of gorgeous chairs that exist around this world. I mean my favourite at the moment is the wishbone chair by Hans Wegner but I also really like the DSW Vitra chair, the industrial school chair, the french café chair, the bertoia wire chair.. you get it right? I can’t choose! So why not mix them up all around one table. The second thing, a table looks like a little party with a couple of different chairs around it. Who doesn’t want that? Though make sure it doesn’t become too big of a chaos. Choose to combine chairs that are either made from the same material, style or colour. That way it all blends in and becomes a fantastic chair gathering. Get inspired below..

I am a big fan of Lofts. The idea that all rooms in a house are situated in one space gives me a satisfying feeling. Being in the bathroom, kitchen and bedroom all at the same time kind of just makes sense to me. I always take my breakfast with me to the bathroom when doing my make-up in the morning, I drink tea wherever I want, which results in finding used mugs and glasses everywhere around the house all the time haha. I change seats while watching a movie all the time just because and the doors to every other rooms are always open. Conclusion, I don’t like small, closed-off spaces. I much more appreciate airy, light spaces and a home should for sure be a place where you’re most comfortable right?

I’ve dedicated this post to show you the most beautiful Loft apartments I’ve came across while browsing the internet and use as inspiration, that reflect my future project or/and just to dream away by. Enjoy!

A city that totally stole my heart. Without any expectiations I decided to take a trip with one of my friends and see what’s going on there. Some of my friends already told me this city is just perfect for me, I had to see that myself.. and if they were right. Full of enthusiasm I’m now writing and selecting images about this amazing city. In a few words Kopenhagen and it’s citizens are calm, friendly, creative, down to earth, colourful and fashionable. You see street art everywhere that colour the gorgeous and rich architecture throughout the city. Parks and nature around every corner. No trash or dirtiness anywhere. No rush nor stress is felt while walking down any street. People like their space and respect others’ aswell. Bikers are well respected as well and so they’ve created private bike lanes next to the broad car lanes and sidewalks. I’ve spotted a lot of gorgeous restaurants and bars with interesting menu’s and fantastic interiors. A street that has become my fav is vaernedamsvej. You’ll find the fantastic ‘playtype’ shop filled with typography posters, mugs, stationary and wonderful staff. Situated next to the fantastic ‘Rist’ coffee place, Café Central and across from Granola Restaurant. All the best of Copenhagen in one street. There are a couple of great food markets in the centre and across the river to check out, ow and don’t forget to visit the Botanical Gardens and the meatpacking district. Find some more imagery and tips on my instragram as well!

Ever lay in bed, staring at the ceiling and realise it’s not that much of a great and inspiring view? well.. let’s upgrade! Why not paint your ceiling for a touch of colour instead of the walls. It might not be the first thing to think off. We all know it’s tough work to paint, especially above the head, but it can really upgrade a room. Let’s take a look at some images to see what’s the effect of a painted ceiling.






Black works well when you have a lot of space and a high ceiling. It gives you the illusion the room is a bit more compact.

The beauty of this is that the painted ceiling can give the whole room a gorgeous coloured reflection of the light. This causes a fantastic cozyness. I’m sure the pink ceiling gives the room, and the people in there, a fabulous pink blush glow. Kind of a nice thing in the bedroom not? Don’t we all want to look fabulous in there? ;)

I think painting the ceiling is  a perfect solution to add a firm dose of colour to your room, without having to paint all the walls, or make it one big colour filled room. The walls stay clean, white and that way you keep it calm. Coloured walls can make placing a closet f.e. a bit harder. It’ll break the line of a wall. Take the one with the olive green ceiling, if you’d paint the wall behind the bed green instead of the ceiling and place the same pink nightstands in front of it together with the macrame wall hanging.. you’ll get a total different look. It’ll be much more of a contrasting and overwhelming appearance. Though, that I’m sure looks really nice as well, where talking about the benefits of the painted ceiling now.

Recently I did a restyle of the Hairdresser shop ‘Simon Says’. A mens hairdresser shop that kind of missed some life and cozyness in the interior. A place where lots of costumers like to come by, have a beer or take a seat on the bench outside to enjoy the sun. I changed the placement of the counter which now is a vintage workbench. A vintage table and old school chairs are placed in the front of the shop so people can take a seat, have a look in a magazine, hang around and wait for their turn in a relaxed setting. I painted the wall in waiting area black, and decorated it with some old enamel plates. To top we added two old factory lights, and cheered the place up with several plants, magazines and some photo frames.

The last and certainly not the least city I visited was Chicago. A city of which I only know its scenery from the series ‘Shameless’ and the cabaret movie ‘Chicago’.  A city that had to surprise me.. And damn well did. Cause Chicago is amazing!
I stayed right next to the Lincoln park in a perfectly clean and friendly hostel, with (for the first time during my travel) al lot of other travellers. I got there on a beautiful sunny day. And what is best to start of with exploring the city on my own? Right, time for a stroll down the Lincoln Park, from north all the way to down south. It even included a free entrance to the Zoo and Botanical Garden yay! Made my day! Ended with a stroll done the beach.. yes, there’s a beach! It’s a lake beach but still, the lake is so big it feels like an ocean.. and sat down one of the piers with an amazing view on the Gold Coast, the Manhatten of Chicago. To end this already perfect day I met some other travellers and spend some time with them going to Jazz/Blues bars the rest of the stay as well. One lovely English girl joined me while exploring the city for a couple days. Together we went to the John Hancock building, jumped in the elevator and got out at the 96th floor to splurge our money on a bottle of tempranillo wine and a gorgeous sunset view over the whole city. At that point my trip was just perfect.
Chicago is amazing for a couple of reasons really. People are friendly, it’s not super big, the metro is easy to travel with and the architecture is really gorgeous. The brownstones right next to more modern buildings create a pleasant scenery together with lots of trees and parks, and it’s situated right on the shore of lake Michigan. There’s a fair amount of good Jazz/Blues clubs and they can give you a wonderfull night out on any day of the week really. Lastly there is a lot of art and musea which makes the city really inspiring, educative and fun to walk around in. Vegetarian of vegan? Not a problem, literally any restaurant I went to had a vegan dish or pastry.
