longing for August... #sinnerlig

A little while ago (here) I told you about my crush 
on the upcoming Sinnerlig collection
designed by Ilse Crawford (studio Ilse) for Ikea

The sneak preview pictures looked so promising...

This week Ikea has shared some new pressphotos and to be honest 
they made that I have lost my patience... 
I really can't wait to admire the beautiful used (natural) materials as cork, 
bamboo and glass at this collection that will be availble in Ikea stores from august 2015

In meantime we can read all about concious living and the product 
development on the Ikea Today site and dream about
 that amazing daybed in our backyards or homes!

"SINNERLIG is an upcoming collection designed by Ilse Crawford that explores the beauty and tactility of raw material. It celebrates the imperfections that arise during the production process.

Sinnerlig is designed to engage our senses and connect us to our homes."

room with a view

really like the way this new print 
- A look outside a winter window -
 gives the room a bit of perspective... 

already said it before many times but 
I'm always inspired by the very creative art work of
 Sarah van Peteghem  (designer and blogger at  coco lapine design )

 If only I could work here for one day...

Starting  this new week 
with this beautiful and very inviting workspace
seen at  last week...

I was attracted by the stylish desk and the whole set up
but there are many more other styling ideas to 
admire at this stunning and inspiring apartment for sale
To be honest...  I just loved it all!

see more here and have a happy new week!

Really fell for this neutral and stylish bathroom
- in this apartment for sale -
just loved the mix of the marble on the floor, 
the simple white tiles on the wall, 
the beige shades and the natural materials of the accessories
beautiful simplicity
that always seem to inspire me...

Have a happy weekend!

outdoor ideas

love this time of the year when we see all these great ideas
 in the magazines and in the blogosphere 
about how to create a comfortable and inviting atmosphere at your garden or balcony 
for exemple by mixing flea finds and new (design)  furniture with 
a lot of soft cushions and cosy accessories 

 the tasteful black and white outdoor styling ideas by Cleo Scheulderman seen at the 
VT wonen magazine site and the beautiful location really inspired me...  
I am looking forward to a nice long summer!

just admired the stunning new IKEA Svirvel lamp series at Livet hemma
I think it will perfect for my future (and everlasting project) workspace
but it also will be very functional and stylish to have
in the livingroom don't you think so? 

according the Livet Hemma redaction this adjustable light
(designed by Chris Martin and Magnus Elebäck)
should give a pleasant and warm light...
can't wait to admire it!

Hi I am back!
We really had a fantastic vacation at Denmark
where we stayed in a beautiful beachhouse near the Vejle fjord and Fredericia
We have enjoyed the beautiful nature, the friendly people, 
the great atmosphere and ofcourse we have visited some wonderful authentic
 villages as Ribe but also the inspiring city Aarhus where we did some great shopping
 and where we admired the beautiful Danish interiordesign and fasion shops
unfortunately we were not able to able visit Kopenhagen again
but I am sure we will go back very soon! 

when I visitid the Fantastic Frank brokerage site this morning
this harmonious and characteristic apartment (76 sqm) in Stockholm
 really made me smile...

 I Just loved this (im-)perfect duplex apartment with the stunning rough plastered walls, 
the beamed ceilings,  the fireplace and  the combination of classic design and trendy furniture
beautiful and warm minimalism...

see more here and have a great day!
